Spot that SAB Stamp Set - Double Pocket Card with Tags

This week at still addINKtive we are featuring three SALE-A-BRATION Stampin' Up! ® Stamp Sets,  Patterned Occasions, Pretty Petites and Bloomin' Marvellous.  Hop on over to the challenge site to read more about our special SAB Week and how you can join in on the fun!

I chose to use the cute elephant image from Patterned Occasions and make a Double Pocket Card to hold a couple of tags.

Please keep reading as I have included quite a few links to some interesting tutorials.

SAB Double Pocket Card

Did you spot that cute, tiny, double bow? It's made from weaving ribbon through a small fork.  I spotted the idea on Pinterest and you can follow the tutorial HERE.


 Instructions on how to make a basic Double Pocket Card from DSP can be found HERE on You Tube. Enjoy!

Here's a link to the first Double Pocket Card I made (SU) -

Here's a post about how you can easily convert the instructions to Metric Measurements by using a piece of A4 DSP as well as a couple of variations to the standard Double Pocket Card (Non-SU)-

I had a play with the Tea For Two Collection Disc (MDS) and chose one of the frames to highlight my card for the week.  I used a combination of Photo Shop and Printmaster 2011, Platinum Edition to produced this graphic as we don't have My Digital Studio in Australia just yet.

Project Recipe for SAB Double Pocket Card:
Stamp Set:  Patterned Occasions
Ink:  Tangerine Tango, Island Indigo and Pool Party Stampin' Write Markers.
Card Stock:  Whisper White
Accessories:  Sycamore Street DSP, Matching Button and Ribbon Pack (SAB items)

So sorry to hear about the other challenge Bronwyn. This happened to to me once before also on another site and they didn't even notify me as to what I did wrong! I love your double pocket card and I hope you are enjoying yourself on vacation!

Great use of those yummy SAB products, Bron; I just love the bright papers, and ribbons. Hadn't thought to punch out the little elephant image with the Decorative Label punch - thanks for the inspiration. :)

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…
