Dynamic Duos #10 - You're Tea-rrific

 DD #10 - Bold and Sassy

It's the first week of the month and that means a Bold and Sassy Combo for this week's challenge at Dynamic Duos.

I think after all the report writing I had to do, I struggled to get back into the flow of things and the 'mojo' just wasn't happening.  This project turned out nothing like I pictured it in my head but because I have little spare time at the moment to re-do stuff, I just had to go with it.  I'm sure we are our own worst critic.

Anyway ... onto the details - This little pocket and tag set is just the right size to hold a tea bag.  You might be seeing a lot of tags in my projects over the next few weeks as I have a demonstration coming up at a local craft shop called, Totally Tags.

Apart from the SU DSP and brads, I got to play with some new things ... so I guess that's good.  The stamp set is from The Greeting Farm, the Artisan Tape from pinkpaislee and the Pocket and Tag Die Cut is from Silhouette.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by.  

Be sure to check out all the other Dynamos for some Bold and Sassy projects to get you inspired -

Happy crafting!

Bron, this is adorable! No loss of mojo showing through, my friend. I love the little pocket, and the teacup stamps. Very cute!

What a fun and clever tea card Bronwyn! Love your stack of tea cups and the sweet floral borders on your card. Glad you finished all those reports ;) Have a great weekend!
Lisa Lara said…
Wow Bron this is amaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing!
Such a fabulous design! It is so exciting to see what the girls at Dynamic Duos come up with each week! I am a devoted but frustrated fan of DD. My recent change in circumstances and responsibilities have meant so little time for stamping! When DD started ... I was determined to enter EVERY week ... But life has other plans. I do love checking out the wonderful creations each week! Hugs xxx

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!

Here's a bird's eye view before I added all the stamped strawberries etc. -

Thanks for stopping by, Please note that this is the original card for this type of fold. I came up with the idea of adding the card inserts to a z-fold. A v…

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…
