Freshly Made Spice Cake

Here's a card I made especially for the latest challenge at Freshly Made Sketches -

Freshly Made Spice Cake

I hope the leaf flourish is okay for the 'square' section of the sketch as I did not want to cover up the woven panel.

Here's the sketch -

It's been so nice to take some time out to craft before the rush to write end of year reports, go to presentations nights, son's graduation, organise the finer details for daughter's leaver's dinner, all of which are fast approaching! So I'm crafting while I still have a small window of opportunity.

Project Recipe:
Stamps: Spiced Paisley (SU December Release), It's Your Day
Ink: Chocolate Chip, More Mustard
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, More Mustard, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories: Blossom Party Die, Spice Cake DSP (SU December Release), 1/2" Circle Punch, Dimensionals, Victoria Crochet Trim, Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, Leaf Flourish Die (Marieanne Creatables) and ...
... this amazing die called Wittle Weaver from Cheery Lyn Designs -

This cuts and embosses and makes it so easy to weave ribbon etc. to form a lovely background.

PS: (22/11/11) Thanks to Cindy Hall and the girls at Freshly Made Sketches for this award -

What a great card Bron, I love the weaved panel with those beautiful ribbons and paper - a really nice little showcase ... but I think the showstopper is that gorgeous daisy ... I think I have a thing for 3d flowers at the moment (yeah, I think I missed the boat earlier on, and am just catching up now), but seriously, this is great and I love it!
So glad you could join us again at Freshly Made Sketches!!!
That weave is so pretty! And I love the layered flower with the flourish! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box

Hi there.  I've been eying off some great examples of Z-fold, pop-up cards on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one.  I tweaked the basic design a little by adding some inserts; the ones you use in card-in-a-box style cards.  So I've called my take on this fun fold, a Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box! - It's a crate full of summer strawberries with some home-made strawberry jam sitting on the kitchen bench.

Summer Strawberries
This card was made for a dear friend's birthday and I'm also entering it into two card challenges -
JAI #318 - "Just Add S"

S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer!
Thanks, JAI!

Doily Cards

I was going a little stir crazy so decided to end my 'blog fasting' today. I lasted 2 weeks which isn't the entire month of March that I was aiming for but I have severely cut down my Internet usage and spent my 'free' time getting my priorities a little more in order :)

Here are some doily cards I wanted to share with you on this beautiful March Long Weekend Holiday. Inspiration came from a very CAS Card I found through Pinterest.

For a Stampin' Up! ® version of this card, please check out what I made using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and co-ordinating die.

Scallop Circle Easel Card Tutorial

Punch Potpourri Scallop Circle Easel Card
in the Dynamic Duo of
Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink

1. Score a piece of card stock through the middle (which is double the length of your die) and line up the folded piece over the Scallop Circle Die (SCD) leaving 4 scallops at the top to form the base of your card.

This is how it should look after you run it through the Big Shot Machine.

2. Score a line through the middle of the top Scallop Circle and fold upwards.

3. Apply Sticky Strip or glue to half the Scallop Circle as shown above.

4. Cut out a single Scallop Circle in the same colour (Melon Mambo) and stick it to the folded half so the top layer sits up like an easel (The top half that is facing will now be a double layer and the bottom half, a single layer of card stock).

5. Cut two circles using the lighter shade (Pretty In Pink) and attach one to the base of the card. Sponge around the edges with the darker shade of ink before gluing the other circle to the front of the card.

6. Stamp…
