A Scalloped Tag Topper Punch Card and Mini Box for Colour Q #238

Hi.  Welcome to addINKtive designs.  I'm on holidays at the moment and am enjoying spending a bit more time in my craft room and thought it would be fun to enter a challenge.

I absolutely love the colour combo for the latest challenge at Colour Q and used it as a 'springboard' for a couple of projects that have been on my 'to do' list.

The Gorgeous Colours for this Week's Challenge

There's so many different types of cards and boxes all over Blogland and Pinterest which have been created using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch (SU). Yesterday, I finally got around to making two of my favourites in preparation for a team get together.

I was scoring the card stock for the mini box and realised I had cut out the wrong measurements.  Eeek!  It was my last piece of the floral pattern in the Natural Compositions Specialty DSP so had to make the so called 'matching' box from a different pattern.  Oooops!

The Mini Box

This cute little box is just the right size for a tea light candle or soy wax melt.

Thanks Arielle and the Team at Colour Q for the Honour!

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. -   Folds flat and fits inside a standard (C6) card size envelope -   Thanks for stopping by, Please note that this is the ori

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
