'B' is for Birthday, Beautiful New In Colours and Stamps

I've really enjoyed the long weekend and have realised just how much I miss having a three day weekend all the time.  I've been happily playing in my craft room today but it will be back to reality tomorrow!  Mid-year assessments and reports are looming ... sigh!

Here's a card I made to highlight the gorgeous new, soon to be released, In Colours and Hostess Stamp Sets.

My latest fad is to use digital punches to make fun shaped cards.  This time I have enlarged the letter 'B' punch from 'Timeless Type - Junior Alphabet' and turned it into a cutting file to use with my Silhouette Cameo (Designer Edition).

From this ...

... to this!

The 'B' is cut from Very Vanilla Card Stock and I have stamped a variety of images from the new Hostess Sets, Morning Meadow and Banner Greetings (release date - July 2nd).

The new In Colours are really pretty.  I love every one of them and will need to order more card stock very soon, especially Baked Brown Sugar!

Colours Used -
Large Flower - Crisp Cantaloupe
Background Flowers - Baked Brown Sugar
Little Leaves Sizzlits - Pistachio Pudding
Bird - Coastal Cabana
Banner - Strawberry Slush

I have a few more cards in the production line but they will have to wait until another day.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

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. -

Thanks for stopping by, Please note that this is the original card for this type of fold. I came up with the idea of adding the card inserts to a z-fold. A v…

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…
