Spot that Stamp Set - Forever Young

It's  Week 2 at still addINKtive where we feature a Stampin' Up! Stamp Set and this week Kathy has chosen, Forever Young.

This is not a challenge week but we're asking that you link up any projects that you have created using that set.  This means either old or new projects, with a limit of 3 links per blog or web site, are welcome.  Some other blogs call this a 'Linky Party' or a 'Product Blog Hop' but we are calling it - Spot that Stamp Set.

So here's what you can do this week -
  • Create a brand new project using the SU set, Forever Young and/or ...
  • Link up any past projects that you have made using this set.
  • If you spot a gorgeous creation in Blog Land that has used any of the images from Forever Young, why don't you email the creator and ask them to link up their post to here.  I'm sure they'd be flattered to have the recognition.
  • Sit back with a cuppa and go for a little blog hop to get some great inspiration on different ways this set can be used.
  • Contact your SU Demonstrator if you have been inspired to purchase Forever Young or any other great Stampin' Up! accessories. 
  • If anyone purchases Forever Young from me during Spot that Stamp Set this week, you will receive a FREE container of Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons valued at $9.95 - yes I'm feeling a little generous!  You can see the featured stamp set on page 116 of the Australian Ideas Book and Catalogue (Link on my side bar) (Wood Mount - $44.95, Clear Mount - $35.95, AUSTRALIAN residents only. SU Demonstrators are not eligible for this promotion. P&H $5.95)  Please click on the 'Contact Me' tab at the top of my blog and send me your order via my email - Credit Card transactions only.

Now, onto the nitty gritty - Believe it or not this tiny bit of stamping is NEW.  The Simply Adorned range of jewellery retired quite a while ago but I had never got around to actually stamping an image for my pendant that I bought back in 2011 - shameful, I know!  I always had in mind to use the image of the little girl on the swing so I'm so glad Kathy chose Forever Young so I could tick one more thing off my To Do List.

I used Basic Black to stamp the image and frame onto the retired, Timeless Portrait DSP and cut it down to fit inside the pendant.  The great thing about this piece of jewellery is I can change the images and add extra charms so it always becomes a 'new' accessory to wear. I used a bit of current Victoria Crochet Trim to add a little bit of 'vintage'.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope that still addINKtive will provide you with loads of inspiration this week.

Not all the DT have this stamp set, but for those that do, be sure to check out their latest projects -

Love how you franmed the image Bron and the Victoria Lace just finishes it off. Gorgeous!
This is so elegant Bron. I love the way you've stamped the girl and frame onto the dsp. I'm glad your idea finally came to fruition! It's beautiful.

This is sooo sweet, Bron. Anyone would think the pendant was especially made for those images, they look fabulous housed in this tiny frame. Love that you have used a blue DSP as your background too. :)

Forgot to say I love your SAB themed blog header, Bron, - the colours are so fresh & fun!
AND your other two Forever Young creations are gorgeous too! :)
What a super idea to use the stamp set the way you did. It's picture perfect! I never did get into the jewelry but always liked what everyone else did with it!

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…
