Penny Farthing Calendar for Spot the SAB Stamp Sets

 Penny Farthing Calendar

This week at Still AddINKtive Challenges we are featuring the second round of  SALE-A-BRATION Stamp Sets - Madison Avenue, Feeling Sentimental and Vintage Verses.  Make sure you go and check out the inspiring projects by the DT, link up your creations (old or new) and get some free templates that are on offer this week.

I decided to have another play with my One Big SALE-A-BRATION 2013 Digital Disc and was pretty pleased that I worked out how to create another shaped card, this time using the Penny Farthing Digital Stamp from the SAB stamp set called, Feeling Sentimental.  We don't have MDS in Australia yet so I made an enlarged mirror image of the 'stamp' using the Print Master 2011 Platinum Edition program.

This is what it looked like before I hand cut around the printed image - 

I decided it looked a bit plain by itself and adding too many embellishments would have distracted from the image, so I decided to use my 'card' as the main feature for a Desk Calendar Drawer.

The image was printed on Naturals Ivory Card Stock.

A little bit of the Island Indigo ribbon from the SAB Sycamore Street, Ribbon and Button Pack was tied to the fold at the top of the 'card' and a couple of Silver Metallic Brads were added to the wheels.

The desk drawer was made from a Silhouette Cameo Cutting File out of Textured Early Espresso Card Stock (retired).  An Antique Brad was added for the 'knob'.  The sentiment (Celebrate) from the Feeling Sentimental Clear Mount Stamp Set was stamped inside the card with Island Indigo Ink.

Thank you so much for stopping by addINKtive designs.  I hope you will join in the fun at still addINKtive and SALE-A-BRATE with us!


That's such a clever idea, Bronwyn! It looks fantastic and I love the brads in the wheels.

Oh very clever Bron, love your little draw too, it's a great male
Very cute project Bronwyn. This is my favorite image from this stamp set. Can't believe you don't have MDS there yet. Bummer!

Brilliant. What more can I say?!!

The pop of colour that the ribbon provides is such a beautiful touch to the vintagey look of this project, Bron. Impressive fussy-cutting!
You are clever! This is wonderful Bronwyn.

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…
