addINKtive designs
Created by: Bronwyn Eastley

Stamp Set: Patterned Occasions (SAB)
Ink: Stampin’ Write Markers – Tangerine Tango, Pool Party (PP), Island Indigo
Card Stock: Sahara Sand (SS), Whisper White (WW), Tangerine Tango (TT), Island Indigo (II)
Accessories: Coffee Cup Template, Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper (DSP) and Tangerine Tango Ribbon, 1 ¼” and 1 3/8” Circle Punches, 1 ¾” Scallop Circle Punch, Dimensionals, Sticky Strip, Bone Folder

Instructions for Making the Coffee Cup Card (RHS) –
1. Print out the template onto an A4 sheet of SS and WW. Alternatively, you could trace the images onto a piece of plastic sheeting using a permanent fine line marker and trace around them. Cut out one card base in SS a lid from WW and a cozy from DSP.
2. Using your bone folder, make a crease in the lid across the middle section and glue to the top of the card front.
3. Attach the DSP coffee cozy onto the middle section of the cup and adhere two rows of TT ribbon to the top and bottom of the cozy.
4. Colour in the coffee cup stamp but not the sentiment, with TT and PP Stampin’ Write Markers and stamp onto WW card stock. Punch out the image with a 1 ¼” Circle Punch.
5. Punch out a TT circle using the 1 3/8” Circle Punch and an II Scallop Circle (1 ¾”). Glue the layers together but do not attach to the card until you have stamped the sentiment.
6. Clean your stamp well before inking up the sentiment with an II marker and use your Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp it in the centre below the cozy.
7. Attach your coffee cup image to the middle of the cozy with Dimensionals (foam dots).
8. The card can stand upright quite well without support.
This is quite an easy card for a Make ‘n’ Take and it demonstrates the following techniques – Colouring on stamps, using the Stamp-a-ma-jig, using punches to layer, making a shaped card without a die.

That’s all there is to it. Enjoy!

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…
