The Stamp Review Crew - Zoo Babies

Hi and welcome to the Zoo Babies Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop.  We are a group of Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators who love to show you just how much you can do with one stamp set. I can't wait to see what everyone has made with this adorable set.

If you get lost, just click on the banner below to take you to our main blog, where you will see a list of all the participants for this round.  Enjoy!

I've just had a two week break from my day job (school holidays) so I've been a busy little 'bee' getting ready for blog hops as well as next week's South Pacific Convention on the Gold Coast.  Yay!  I'll have lots to share over the next few weeks, so make sure you check out my blog and Facebook page, AddINKtive Designs, to see the latest news about Convention.

I'm just a little bit excited about my projects today as I designed all of the 3D items. They certainly have been a labour of love with countless hours of construction and fussy cutting until I was finally happy with the results.

1. A Card in a 'Box' - Baby Crib

(In Aussie lingo, a baby cot)



A have written a tutorial for my 'Card in a Box - Baby Crib', so I won't go into listing all the project details. A few weeks back I went searching for a baby crib card to make but only came across SVG files in the Silhouette Store or similar 'take-offs' and templates, so I decided to set about designing one made from SU punches and/or dies and came up with two designs.  This is the first one that I constructed especially for the SRC Blog Hop and I am beyond excited with how it turned out. 

2. Berry Basket - Toy Shopping Trolley

This project was inspired by a 'push toy' shopping cart that my daughter had when she was a toddler.  The main colours are Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Tempting Turquoise and was constructed using the Berry Basket Die. The wheels are stamped from the Amazing Birthday Stamp Set.

3.  Curvy Keepsake - Baby Pram

I created this little pram from Pink Pirouette Card Stock and stamped with the five, soon to be retired, In-Colours (sniff), plus Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette and Pool Party.  The handle is made from the Berry Basket Die and about a half of one section of the box has been cut away to reveal the inside and front of the pram.  The wheels and tag trim are stamped from the Daydream Medallions Stamp Set.  I have tweaked this design a little and have posted a detailed tutorial on my blog if you would like to check it out HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by,

OMG! You just blew me away when I took a look at that trio. Each one is cuter than the next, and the first thing I thought of was "I know what I am taking to the cabin to work on next time I go." I can't wait to try to recreate these in some way.

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…
