Thinlits Card Dies are Flippin' Awesome!

On Friday night I helped a friend re-launch her SU Business and because the new Thinlits Card Dies were only released last week, I thought it would be great to demo them for the Make 'n' Take.

Now ... last week was no ordinary week for me.  To cut a long story short it was EPIC in more ways than one and the whole Make 'n' Take inspiration thing just wasn't happening!

In desperation (the night before the workshop) I went to Pinterest and came across a wonderful tutorial via You Tube called, How to Create Awesome Cards with the Card Thinlits Dies by Linda Higgins, a fellow Aussie Demonstrator!

All I can say is that Linda saved the day!  Make sure you check out her tutorial as it explains how you can get the extra flap thingy on the right hand side of the card.

This card became the actual Make 'n' Take -
 Label Card Thinlits Die
(Pool Party, Basic Black Card Stock, Modern Medley DSP with a Butterfly from Papillon Potpourri, Pool Party Seam Binding Ribbon, Basic Rhinestones)

 
 The inside of the card with the extra 'flap'.


 Circle Card Thinlits Die 
(Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Very Vanilla Card Stock, Modern Medley DSP, 2 1/2" Circle Punch, Basic Rhinestones, White Organza Ribbon)

 
 The Inside


The Important Info -

Each Make 'n' Take was 'personalised' and we ended up with Birthday Cards, an Engagement Card and an idea for Wedding Invitations.

Each set contains a variety of versatile dies ... great for the card maker and scrap booker too!

These dies and other great SU products can be found by shopping through my on-line store or you can drop me an email if you would prefer.  Don't forget to check out the specials why you are there :)

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!
and ...
 JUGs #350 - Word Week

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…
