The Colour Tree's Top Pick for Challenge #2

Thank you to the talented crafters that joined in with the latest colour challenge at The Colour Tree. I think good old Garden Green may have prevented some from linking up :) lol.  There were six beautiful entries and I have chosen this lovely 'watercolour wash' card by Helen Williams -

Top Pick for #TCTC2 -


   
(Please note that only one weekly winner is chosen if there are less than seven entries)

Congratulations, Helen!  Make sure you grab the Top Pick Badge to add to your blog!

Don't forget that one Winner will be chosen out of all the Top Picks for the month of January and they will be invited to be a Guest Designer in February.

See you later in the day for the launch of #TCTC3.

PS:  Did you know that everyone who enters a challenge at The Colour Tree has their projects pinned on my TCTC Pinterest Board?  You can check it out HERE.

I had my two grands for a few days this week and after they left, I worked on a project for TCTC2. Unfortunately I didn't get it loaded before the link closed because I totally forgot about the 16-hour time difference. Our current date and time right now is Saturday, January 23, 2015, 6:59 p.m. (EST Georgia,USA). I'll have to make sure I complete my cards at least two days in advance in order to play along. Thank you so much for hosting this challenge. I love it and will participate as often as I can.

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…
