Something Yummy for SUO 97

SUO Challenges have a delicious theme this fortnight, Something Yummy A few of us on the DT must really like our coffee as we opted to use the super cute Perfect Blend Stamp Set!

SUO 97 - Something Yummy
(A Coffee Bag and Gift Card Holder)

Lately, I've been enjoying making some cards using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to form the closure.  This time around I flipped it to create a landscape card and added a pouch insert to hold a coffee bag and a gift voucher inside.

Aren't those little leaves the cutest?  They are from the Warm Weather Woodcuts (Digital Punch - MDS) and have been e-cut and stamped with the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set. The little flowers and leaves were  sitting on my craft desk left over from the production line of Convention Swaps and I'm so glad I added them to the card at the last minute as they really make it 'pop'.

Here's My Project Recipe:
Stamp Sets:  Perfect Blend, Petite Petals, Gorgeous Grunge
Card Stock:  Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Naturals White, Whisper White, Natural Composition Specialty (reverse side), Pear Pizzazz
Ink:  Early Espresso, Elegant Eggplant, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories:  Polka Dot Parade DSP (Marina Mist), Dimensionals, Tea Lace Doily, Crumb Cake Taffeta Ribbon, Corner Rounder, Petite Petals, Scalloped Tag Topper, 1 3/8" Circle and 1 1/4" Circle Punches, Sticky Strip, Envelope Punch Board, MDS Warm Weather Woodcuts Digital Download, Silhouette Cameo

I hope you will play along over the next fortnight and share your SUO 'Yummy' projects with us.

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. -

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…
