The Stamp Review Crew - Sheltering Tree

Welcome to addINKtive designs.  Thanks for stopping by on the SRC Blog Hop.

I really enjoy being a part of the Stamp Review Crew.  This week we are featuring the stamp set, Sheltering Tree and it's the first time I've inked it up since purchasing it a few weeks ago.  Wow! did I have fun.  I am in love with the versatility of this set and all the cute little images that go together to create a variety of scenes for all seasons.

 Photopolymer Stamp Set - Sheltering Tree

Sample 1 - Acetate and Tissue Technique
The layout for this card was inspired by a beautiful Christmas card spotted on Pinterest which was made by Melissa Banbury (Porch Swing Creations).

Here's a close up of the Glitter and Dazzling Diamonds mixed in with the Crystal Effects and Pool Party Re-inker 'sandwiched' between the Window Sheet and White Filter Paper -

Thanks for hopping along.  I hope you are loving all the 'Sheltering Tree' projects from the SRC Crew.  See you in the next round.

Oh, Bronwyn, these are all gorgeous! I love the technique that you used on the first car. It's really lovely!

3 completely different cards and all 3 are really lovely. I never would have thought to stamp the tree in a color other that a "tree color" so that really inspires me.

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. -

Thanks for stopping by, Please note that this is the original card for this type of fold. I came up with the idea of adding the card inserts to a z-fold. A v…

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…
