Make Something Masculine ...

... that's the 81st Challenge for SUO Challenges! 

I've been away on a holiday to sunny Brisbane (It was an enjoyable break with 30+ degrees Celsius on most days) and I was itching to get back into my Studio to do some serious paper crafting.  So I set about making a Camera Card mainly because I wanted to crack open some new DSP (I Am Me) and ink up a new stamp set (Notable Notions).

The camera shape is designed using the following SU Digital Punches -
Tags For All - Bow Wrap and Tag 4, Circle Punch and Rounded Corner Punch.  It was then cut out with my Silhouette Cameo Electronic Cutting Machine (Basic Gray and Whisper White Card Stock).

(More information on how I did this in my previous post).

A 1 1/4" Circle Punch was used to cut out the stamped image and an Itty Bitty Punched Circle and Rhinestone were added to complete the look.

I hope you get a chance to join in with the challenge to Make Something Masculine at SUO Challenges #81 this week as everybody could do with some 'manly' cards in their stash!

PS:  Thanks so much, Robin and the rest of the DT for a Top 3 Spot this week!

Thanks 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!

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…
