The Stamp Review Crew - I Think You're Great

Hi there.  It's the first Monday of the month and that means The Stamp Review Crew are back for another blog hop.  We are a group of International Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who love to show you lots of creative ways to use your stamps.  This round we are featuring the stamp set, I think You're Great.

If you get lost along the way, just click on the banner below to take you to the main blog where you will see a list of participants for this round.

You will find this stamp set in the Artistic Expression section on page 130 of the annual catty under the heading 'Kissing'!



I Think You're Great is also very versatile for lots of other techniques - I have demonstrated the kissing technique (sentiment), repeated stamping for the background, stamping on a die cut (sun's rays) and making your own stamped DSP for some paper piecing (the camper or 'caravan' in Aussie lingo).


 

I only have one project to share today as I am back at work after the summer break; the first two weeks of the school year are always a little crazy!

Here are the details about the products I used -

Or back to our SRC co-ordinator, Tanya Boser, who has only just purchased this set!  I'm sure she's had fun over the weekend putting some 'great' ideas together!

Oh Bronwyn, that little purple caravan is ADORABLE!!!! I have the You're Sublime stamp set out at the moment as I work on my March class, and I'd love to CASE your card to show the ladies the possibilities.

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!
and ...

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…
