Just Add ... the Beach for JAI 109

JAI 109

I didn't intend on entering any challenges for a while but some gorgeous ribbon that I bought today got me in the mood to create a Beach Themed Card for Just Add Ink's 109th Challenge.

After scrummaging through my craft stash I came across some very neglected punches as well as a brand new one to create this card.

Here's What I Used -
Stamp: It's Your Day (SU)
Ink: Marina Mist, Rose Red (SU)
Card Stock: Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red (SU), Square Natural Card (non-SU)
Accessories: Patterned Paper from artee supplies called Coral Bay Beachside, White Mesh Ribbon, Small Shell, Stamping Sponge, Dimensionals, Basic Pearl, Branch Punch (Martha Stewart), Shell Punches by Paper Shapes and Carl Carta Craft, Cork Board, Fish Punch from Meadow Micro Makers (Creative Memories), Word Window Punch (SU)

It was fun to make a Summery card before the Autumn weather sets in.

Don't forget to check out the DT's awesome beach inspired cards. There's such a variety of ideas. Thanks for stopping by.

Bronwyn this is a beautiful beach card. I love that ribbon it so much looks like netting and your colour choice of coral embelishments are lovely. Makes me think of some of the lovely underwater photos Gary has taken when diving. Thanks for playing at Just Add Ink this week, see you soon!

Gorgeous beachy card Bronwyn! Love your ribbon, it reminds me of a fabulous sea sponge.
Great card Bronwyn. I love the way you've done the shells and seaweed and that ribbon just compliments it all perfectly. I'm glad you found some time to play along at JAI again :)

I am wondering where I might find that "mesh ribbon" the card is so cool and that ribbon is just great. I am from the states so not sure where to get it.

Love your card Bronwyn

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.

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!   and ...  JUGs #350 - Word Week   Here's a bird's eye view before I added all the stamped strawberries etc. -   Folds flat and fits inside a standard (C6) card size envelope -   Thanks for stopping by, Please note that this is the ori

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
