Favourite Tea Room Project - #146

The Shabby Tea Room are having a 'Favourites Week' and all you have to do is link up your Favourite Tea Room Project that you did for 2012.  I entered this project in June and here's a summary of what I posted for the challenge.

The Shabby Tea Room Sweet Summertime Inspiration


Challenge Photo
The theme was Sweet Summertime using the beautiful photo for inspiration and the colours TEAL or AQUA, PINK and BROWN.

You can see why I couldn't resist as I had a bit of an obsession with making tea cup easel cards.  However, this one was a little different as I used the largest Nested Tea Cup Die and some gorgeous Origami Paper, Kaiser Craft Flowers and a little 'chocolate' (SU).

I was thrilled to be chosen as the 'winner' for that particular challenge -

... and was offered a Guest spot for August but unfortunately had to decline as life was a little frantic back then with work and getting ready to go on a big holiday to Fiji.

Now that I am a SU Demonstrator again, I have been working on a new tea cup easel card using SU products and can't wait to share that with you soon. 

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and re-visit a favourite project, which has prompted me to work on the usual 'round up' of favourites for 2012.

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!

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…
