DD # 15 - Baby Boutique

DD # 15 - Baby Boutique

It's a soft and subtle colour combo at Dynamic Duos for week 15 - Pretty In Pink and Certainly Celery.

The Colour Duo -
Soft, Romantic Colours

A friend holidaying in Canada was able to send me some cute new Stampin' Up! goodies which arrived in the post just in time for me to put this card together.

There has been a bit of a 'baby boom' lately.  My mum has been busy knitting little jackets or jumpers for me to give as presents and I'm trying to catch up on the card making.   This one was made to welcome Lucee Joy, first grandchild for friends of mine.

I have used the cute little bird image from the new stamp set, Baby Boutique and the new large scallop edgelit die and co-ordinating Delicate Designs embossing folders

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Happy crafting!


Very pretty Bronwyn. That embossing folder will be on my first order too. It's gorgeous and you've used it beautifully.

Oooh, this is so sweet Bron! Love these soft colours teamed with white & kraft. Lucky you, on getting your hands on those new goodies, can't wait for the pretty, lacey dies! The little birdie perched on the doily banner is adorable too! :)

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…
