CASE-ing the Catty Challenge #16 - New DSP

This week at CASE-ing the Catty we are taking inspiration from the Sale-a-bration Catalogue and using some new SAB DSP or new to you, SU Designer Series Paper on our projects.

There's some gorgeous new Specialty DSP in the SAB Catty called Irresistibly Yours and it can be yours for FREE with a $90 (AUD) SU order.  "This white paper with a glossy white pattern is perfect for colouring using a variety of techniques - colouring reveals the pattern".  I LOVE the stuff and have used sponge daubers with ink to create the ombre background for my card.

I was inspired by the beautiful card on page 14 of the SAB Catty which uses the Irresistibly Yours DSP and the spritzing method -

Method for CTC 16 -
I started off applying Marina Mist ink with a sponge dauber, followed by Pool Party then Soft Sky, blending the colours from dark to light from top to bottom of the card.  The bird images are stamped in Basic Black and the leaves in Night of Navy (World of Dreams Stamp Set).  The moon is a just a white punched circle and the nest is made from Linen Thread and Basic Pearls.  The text was stamped on a strip of vellum with Black Stazon and attached with vellum tape (non-SU).  To finish off my card, I rounded off the top right corner with the PL Corner Rounder Punch.

Why don't you join us at CTC this week and use some new DSP on your project.
Thanks for stopping by,

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…
