CASEing the Catty for the Catalogue Launch

Today is the day for our Team (Perfectly Rustics) Catalogue Launch! My up-line came up with an awesome idea to CASE some of the projects in the new catty and my contribution was to re-create the beautiful journal on page 164. 

Texturing and Layering
Kinda Eclectic Journal

Handy Tip:  During the process, I did discover that the journal featured on that page must be bigger than the ones that will be available to purchase on July 1st. The example on page 164 uses the frame from the Apothecary Accents Framelits but when I went to use that, it was far too large for this journal that measures only 8.9 x 14cms. I substituted it with a tag from the Chalk Talk Framelits instead. The whole idea of all the examples featured in the catalogue is to inspire you to recreate them for yourself. You may just like the sketch and substitute the stamp set and embellishments.  It is chocked full of wonderful examples to keep you happy all year round!

I wasn't really sure about the stamp set, Kinda Eclectic when I found out that it would be one of the free stamp sets at the latest Inspire, Create, Share Convention in Melbourne.  However, after doing the Make 'n' Takes with that set, I was truly inspired.  You can see them below.  The one on the right is a step up from the first one with vellum, mini clip, linen thread and honeycomb stamping using an embossing folder, added to give it a bit more texture.  Sorry about the bad photo as it was taken with my iPhone at the table.

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…
