Workshop Make 'n' Takes for SAB and the New Seasonal Catalogue

On Friday night I held my first proper workshop since re-joining SU.  It was more like a stamp class as all the participants got to make two cards to take home with them.  I wanted to feature items from the new Seasonal Catalogue, SALE-A-BRATION and the current Ideas Book and Catalogue.  This is what I came up with -
Make 'n' Take # 1 - Just Because
(14/3/13 - I've linked this card to the latest challenge at still addINKtive)

Guests could choose to do an alternative colour scheme to the one pictured above - Primrose Petals Core'dinations card Stock embossed with the Fancy Brocade embossing folder and a Pool Party Decorative Label behind the sentiment.

Make 'n' Take # 2 - Friends

This one was a lot quicker to make and both designs got the tick of approval from all the guests.  Inspiration for the second card came from page 13 of the Seasonal Catalogue.

They're gorgeous, Bron. I especially love the first one, and may just have to CASE it, if that's okay with you. :)

First, I am glad you decided to rejoin SU. :)
Secondly, I think both of those cards are amazing. I am not surprised they met with the approval of your guests!

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. -

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…
