A Centre Panel Easel Card for CASE-ing the Catty Challenge #20 - Blendabilities and Framelits

Ooops!  I'm a bit late posting my card for the latest challenge at CASE-ing the CattyThis is my first day at home for two weeks as I have either been at work or away!  It's been frustrating having an idea in my head for ages and not having the time to get into my craft room to actually put those thoughts into action.

CTC 20 - Use Blendabilities and Framelits

"Did you know that during SALE-A-BRATION (SAB) you can choose a Blendabilities assortment as your free item with a $90 (AUD)/$110 (NZD) purchase?"  I used Bermuda Bay and Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities on my card and chose the Window Frames for the second part of the challenge (to use Framelits).

The challenge to use Blendabilties and Framelits in your paper craft project is inspired by the card on page 18 of the SALE-A-BRATION catalogue. 
Why don't you grab our CTC #20 Challenge Badge and play along this week!

'Big Day' Centre Panel Easel Card
I first made this style of easel card almost 3 years ago and you can see the full tutorial HERE.  

Here's the measurements and a quick look at how the base is constructed -

Today's card uses the SAB 'Big Day Stamp Set' which is free with a $90 (AUD) Stampin' Up! ® order (only until the end of March).  I added some new pom pom and sequin trims and the very fun and festive, Birthday Bash Specialty Designer Series Paper, all from the new Occasions Catalogue.

I hope you can join us this week at CASE-ing the Catty.  Get out your 'Blendies' and Framelits and make something awesome!

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!

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…
