The AddINKtive Designers

I got to have my first 'team' craft night on Monday and two of my down line came along to make a SAB card (previous post), view the new pre-order goodies from the Occasions and SALE-A-BRATION Catalogues and get to generally hang out, craft, chat, eat, drink and enjoy each other's company.

After we had finished the Make 'n' Take, De Arn and Jo had the opportunity to have a bit of a 'free play' with some new and old products.  Jo wanted to learn how to emboss on Vellum Card Stock so we stamped one of the beautiful 'Festive Flurry' stamps with Versa Mark and heat embossed it with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.  Then we just couldn't resist having a play with the retired Cherry Scented EP - yum!

Next, the Spiral Flower Die got a work out and Crystal Effects was added to the paper rose to form the 'dewdrops'.  Lastly, both ladies wanted to make their very own SAB Owl from various punches and the Top Note Die.

Overall, it was a fun night.  The best part about having a craft room with lots of goodies to use, is sharing it with others.

The table got quite messy by the end of the night.  Some 'stuff' that you can see in the photo had to be 'blurred' out as they haven't been released yet.  Not long now though ... only 5 days until some gorgeous new SU products will be released in Australia.

Jo hard at work on her owl card.

I love the owl cards. They are very unique. How do you do the stitching around some of the parts of the card? Thanks for showing all your cards. You are very talented!

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…
