CASEing the Catty - For Kids

Hi and welcome to addINKtive designs and the latest CTC Blog Hop. We are a group of SU Demonstrators that are CASEing (Copying and Sharing Everything) our way through the latest Stampin' Up! Catalogue.

For this round, I've decided to join in with the latest challenge at SUO Challenges; #126 is all about using Designer Papers and have used a piece from the Cherry on Top DSP Stack (Cucumber Crush) and one from the Pretty Petals DSP Stack (Pacific Point).

CTC 38 - For Kids

An Extra Double Flip Card for CTC #38 and SUO #126

 My first You Tube Clip (Now with sound effects!)



This week we are checking out the Kids section of the catty (pages 39-48) and inspiration for my project comes from page 39 -
  • The Colours - Daffodil Delight, Cucumber Crush, Pacific Point and Pumpkin Pie
  • The Stamp Set - No Bones about It
  • The Shapes - Circles and Stars 
I followed a tutorial by France Martin on You Tube to learn how to make this Extra Double Flip Card and adapted the design to suit the 'No Bones about It' stamp set.

Project Recipe:
Stamp Sets:  No Bones about It, Gorgeous Grunge
Card Stock:  Thick Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Cucumber Crush, Pacific Point and Pumpkin Pie
Ink: Same as Card Stock
Accessories:  Circle Card Thinlits Dies, Star Framelits, Circles Collection Framelits, 2-1/2" Circle Punch

I hope you are enjoying the CTC Blog Hop.  Up next is the lovely and talented, Alison Barclay from Gothdove Designs -

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!

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…
