Watercolor Wings (139424)
Photopolymer Stamp Set ($45 AUD)
Coordinates with Bold Butterfly Framelits, Butterflies Thinlits Dies

I've just had two weeks of mid-term break; Tassie is in the middle of a cold snap at the moment so I have had lots of time to get ready for today's blog hop and have three new projects to share with you. WARNING:  This post has lots of photos so I hope you have a good internet connection :)

1.  Double Butterfly Flip Card


I have made a video tutorial on how to make this Double Butterfly Flip Card and you can view it HERE.  It's a combination of Linda Bauwin and France Martin's tutorials.
Project Recipe:
Stamp Set:  Watercolor Wings
Card Stock:  Very Vanilla, Mint Macaron
Ink:  Marina Mist, Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Calypso Coral, Memento Black
Accessories:   Pretty Petals DSP Stack, Big Shot, Paper Trimmer (with scoring blade), Bone Folder

2.  Golden Butterfly Curvy Keepsake Box

Thanks to Erica Cerwin (Pink Buckaroo Designs) there are lots of Butterfly Curvy Keepsake gift boxes fluttering around the internet and this is my version based on today's featured stamp set.
The colours are inspired by my first TCT swatch - every Sunday night (AEST) I post a new Pinterest inspired colour combo called The Colour Tree; then on the 7th of every month I host a Linky Party (Under the Colour Tree) to feature a round up of the previous month's inspiration. It's not a 'challenge' but a place to share your projects in the gallery.
I've linked up this project to the July Linky Party at Under the Colour Tree.  I hope you will join me.

Project Recipe:
Stamp Sets:  Watercolor Wings, Serene Silhouettes
Card Stock:  Very Vanilla, Gold Glimmer Paper
Ink:  Mint Macaron
Accessories:  Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits, Bold Butterfly Framelits, Butterflies Thinlits Dies, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, Gold Sequin Trim, Gold Glitter, Crystal Effects, Pretty Petals DSP Stack

3.  Cupcake Stand

My last project is something I have wanted to make for a long time.  I saw something similar made from the retired Beautiful Butterfly Bigz Die many moons ago and this is my take on it using current SU products.

1.  Stamp four butterflies, score each one through the middle and glue the wings together in a 'round'.
2.  Punch out a piece of card stock (Pool Party) with the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch and glue a Gold Metallic Foil Doily over the top.  The card stock underneath the doily makes the base nice and firm to hold the cupcake.
3.  Place a glue dot at the top of each wing and secure the doily base on top.

 Mmmm ... yum!  Strawberry, Chocolate or Vanilla?
Or maybe for a tea light?
The colours are inspired by my second TCT swatch and I've also linked up this project to the July Linky Party at Under the Colour Tree

Project Recipe:
Stamp Set:  Watercolor Wings
Card Stock:  Whisper White, Pool Party
Ink:  Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories:  Bold Butterfly Framelits, 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, Gold Metallic Foil Doily (largest size)

I hope you're enjoying the SRC Blog Hop.  I'm nestled between two of my favourite stampers and have followed their blogs for a very long time; their projects are always so inspirational.  It's so lovely to be on the crew with them!

Up next is Anne Schach -

Wow, how clever and beautiful each of these amazing designs are! I love the card, the adorable cupcake holder, and the lovely butterfly easel cards! So lovely and great ideas for gifts! Saw on Pinterest and just had to see more (and comment). Hugs!

And THIS post is why, years later in the summer of 2020, I still hung on to some of my Bigz dies. The wafer thin dies just won't be able to cut through material strong enough to support a cupcake. Thank you for a brilliantly beautiful idea! OOXOO

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…
