Awesomely Artistic


Clear Mount Stamp Set  (139950 - $35.00 AUD)

I have a couple of projects to share with you for this round.  The first card is a flower pot easel card made from the medium sized Envelope Liners Framelits - 

1.  Awesomely Artistic Flower Pot Easel Card

The cluster of flowers image was stamped three times with Tip Top Taupe Ink, coloured in with Stampin' Write Markers and fussy cut.  The dragonfly was stamped with Black Stazon on vellum and Gold Glitter was added to the wings with Crystal Effects.
My colour palette is from The Colour Tree.
This card is the second in the series of Flower Pot Easel Cards made from the Envelope Liners Framelits.  I shared the first one in the Petite Petals SRC Blog Hop a couple of months ago and have now written tutorials for both, which are available to purchase from My Tutorials For Sale page.

Project Recipe:
Stamp Set:  Awesomely Artistic
Ink: Tip Top Taupe, Calypso Coral (Ink and Markers), Black Stazon
Card Stock:  Thick Whisper White
Accessories:  Envelope Liners Framelits, Vellum, Boho Chic Embossing Folder, Dimensionals, Pretty Petals DSP Stack, PL Corner Rounder Punch, Gold Glitter, Crystal Effects, Basic Pearls

2.  Window Card with Ornate Tag Topper Closure

My second card is also based on a colour combination from The Colour Tree and you can see from the photos that the 'fold' is a variation of the popular Scallop Tag Topper cards that were doing the rounds last year; except this fold uses the Ornate Tag Topper Punch and has a front 'window'.
Project Recipe:
Stamp Set:  Awesomely Artistic
Ink:  Soft Suede, Lost Lagoon, Black Marker
Card Stock:  Very Vanilla, Soft Suede
Accessories:  Ornate Tag Topper Punch, Gold Metallic Doily, Black Stitched Satin Ribbon, PL Corner Rounder Punch, Circle FramelitsDie (no. 4)
I hope you are enjoying the SRC Blog Hop so far. The next three participants are also from Australia and I'm sure they, along with the rest of the international crew, have some amazing inspirational projects to share. This is one of my favourite stamp sets and I can't wait to see what awesomeness lies ahead! 

Up next is my good friend, Nikki Spencer -

... or back to the talented, Jennifer Timko -

Here's a slider card that I made a few weeks ago and it was the first time I had inked up Awesomely Artistic.  For more info you can check out my blog post HERE.

My goodness - what beautiful detail! I particularly like the dragonfly on the first card with the glittery wings. What a great touch! And thank you for reminding us that we don't have to stamp line art with dark ink; the color of the flowers show beautifully against the TT Taupe.

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…
