Dots, Dots and More Dots for SUO #114 and a Tutorial for a Valentine Card with a Decorative Heart Fold

Hi there.  If you have checked out my previous post for The Stamp Review Crew and was wondering how I made the first 'heart' card that was featured, here's a little photo tutorial for you.  I've also decided to enter this card in the latest challenge at SUO as the theme is Dots, Dots and More Dots.
Project Recipe: 
Stamp Set: @SoSocial
Ink:  Strawberry Slush
Card Stock:  Note Card from Hip, Hip Hooray Card Kit
Accessories:  2013-15 In Colour DSP, Sweetheart Punch, Bitty Banner Framelits, Tea Lace Paper Doilies, Basic Rhinestones, Stampin' Dimensionals, Sticky Strip
 Mini Tutorial for @SoSocial Heart Card -
 SUO #114 - Dots, Dots and More Dots

 1.  Glue Tea Lace Paper Doily to the side front of the card.
2.  Punch out a Sweetheart from Strawberry Slush Card Stock and score down the middle.  Attach to the front of the card as illustrated and then fold and attach the second half of the heart to the inside.  Add embellishments to the front of the card.
 3.  Punch out several hearts (about 10 or 11) from DSP and score down the middle of each.  Glue one side of the DSP heart to the front card stock heart and continue to layer the DSP folded hearts on top of each other (alternate pattern).  Add a piece of Sticky Strip to the last folded heart but don't remove the red tape as the recipient will stick the heart down in place to form the decorative heart fold.
4.  To mail the card, fan out the hearts half way and slide into an envelope.
5.  Once the card has been received the recipient will need to stick down the last heart to the inside of the card to form the 'fan'.
That's all there is to it. 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…
