Addinkive Designs has a New Home

Hi crafty peeps,

AddINKtive Designs has moved to a new home.  I've upgraded to a Wordpress website/blog; it still needs some tweaking but has now gone live!  Make sure you check out the new space and subscribe to so you don't miss any posts.

I'm unsure at this stage whether I will transfer everything over or just keep this blogger site as is.  I'll keep posting here to keep you up to date.

To launch my new site, I have written a tutorial for my Botanical Birdcage, a project that I shared in my last post for The Stamp Review Crew.  See you there!

Thanks for stopping by,

I just adore your botanical bird cage. Just Lovely!
I went to your "new home" and tried to subscribe with the subscribe button with the pink around it and it did nothing. I love you blog and really don't want to miss receiving your posts in my e-mail.
Can you tell me what I am doing wrong or if your subscribe button isn't active yet??? Thank you!

Hi Lynn. Yes, that's a bit of a confusing set up. I'm guessing you're clicking on the pink subscribe button in my header? That's just to let you know that you can click onto the social icons above it to take you to my different accounts like Instagram etc. so you can subscribe to them. Instead, look on the right hand side column half way down my blog and you will see a subscribe button that you have to type your email address into. You will get a follow up email to confirm your subscription.

Thanks for letting me know. I will go and see if I can get rid of the top pink subscribe 'button'.

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…
