Curvy Keepsake Pram Tutorial

Hi there.  Welcome to addINKtive designs.  If you stopped by my blog from the Zoo Babies Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop, you would have spotted a little pink pram that I made from the Curvy Keepsake Die.  As promised, here's a quick tutorial on how to make one, with a few tweaks and a new colour palette.

 Curvy Keepsake Pram Tutorial

1. Cut out the two pieces of the Curvy Keepsake Die with your Big Shot and snip off one of the sides with a handle about 3/4" from the score line.

2.  Emboss the two pointy sides with the Argyle Embossing Folder about 3/4" from the base score line to avoid embossing the other sections.

3.  Assemble the box as usual and curve the cut out section towards the insides of the box.

4.  Cut a 'blanket' from DSP (A fraction smaller than 2" x 2") and glue to the inside base of the pram.
5.  Add a handle made from the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch (6-1/2" long).

6.  Make a square rim to go around the bottom edge of the box from DSP - 3/4" x 11" long and scored at 2-1/2", 5", 7-1/2" and 10".  Attach to two of the sides with Glue Dots. Birthday Bash Specialty DSP used in this example.

7.  The wheels are stamped in Tangerine Tango Ink from one of the stamps from the Amazing Birthday Set onto Whisper White Card Stock and punched out with the 1" Circle Punch. Glue on 3/4" white circles to cover up the writing and add a Mini Silver Brad to each wheel.  Attach to the pram with Dimensionals.

8.  Embellish with the cute little stamps from Zoo Babies.

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…
