Tags for Father's Day

I'm chilling out tonight after a 5 hour demo at a local craft shop today.  It was all about tags and you will see quite a few posts over the next few days with some more examples.  Here's just a small snippet of a couple of Father's Day tags that I made.

I discovered quite by accident that if you pushed the loop end of the doubled ribbon through the back of the tag, you can make a tie.  You need to cut the ribbon a little over two lengths of the tag.  

Both tags feature sentiments from the Flourishes Stamp Set called, A Guiding Light.                           
Some kitchen twine was threaded through the top and a brad used to complete the Father's Day tag.

This one was cut using the largest tag in the Spellbinders set and covered with Kaiser Craft patterned paper from the Le Chateau collection.  I have used ribbon from SU for both examples.

Thanks for stopping by,


More great tags Bronwyn!
The ladies at your class were VERY lucky to have such a wonderful teacher.

Very clever Bron! I particularly like the top tag with the lovely Striped Grosgrain Ribbon. I am sure all those who attended thoroughly enjoyed what you had to share.

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. -

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…
