The Stamp Review Crew - Four Feathers

Hi and welcome to The Four Feathers 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. 

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!

Today I have a few sneak peeks from the new, soon to be released, Stampin' Up! ® Catalogue, which team up nicely with the Four Feathers Stamps.  I'm a bit sad that this stamp set and the coordinating dies are retiring but looking forward to playing with some more pre-release goodies and the launch of the brand new catty on June 2nd.

It's been a very busy month for me and I only had time for one project for today's SRC Blog Hop, so I made sure I combined a few ideas that were floating around in my head to make this 'Bohemian' Gift Bag.  All the elements take me back to the 70's, early 80's era. I remember one of my favourite dresses had feathers, beads and bling!

Gorgeous bag decoration! Just one more reason to keep these stamps in my stash, and to invest in the gift bag punch board and the Bohemian stuff from the new catty :)

Oh Bron you crack me up! Love the pic of you kicking back with your new catty. Also love the thought of your 70's/80's dress with feathers, beads AND bling. I can just imagine it. All the rage back then.

Gorgeous bag! I was a bit slow getting my pre order off so hopefully my new bits and pieces will arrive on my doorstep tomorrow!

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…
