Cards of Pinterest

Did any one else spend countless hours pouring through your mother's magazines, Woman's Weekly, New Idea etc and cutting out all the really cool pics and gluing them into a scrap book?  That was a favourite past time of mine way back in the 60's and 70's.  Fast forward forty years and things haven't really changed that much.  I'm still collecting pics for inspiration but it's a lot less messy without the scissors and glue thanks to the wonderful world wide web and a great site called Pinterest.

I often get inspiration from other card makers, but rarely CASE.  However, the following cards are pretty much a copy of someone else's designs which I had 'pinned' on my Pinterest Boards.  There's some slight variations but why mess with perfection?

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy pinning!

These all look terrific Bronwyn, I love the CAS style (though am no good myself at doing them lol) As for pinterest it is my new addiction, I really couldn't determine how many hours a week I am on it, may need an intervention soon lol.
Hello Bronwyn! Thanks for CASEing my owl card! It's always lovely to see that one inspires someone else. We have much in common as I am a home school educator and former Stampin' Up! demo as well.

I too used to make scrapbooks for inspiration and still do although I am also a Pinterest fanatic as well. I will enjoy having a look at your other creations. Thanks for the linking too! Make it a great day!

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!

 JUGs #350 - Word Week

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…
