Yesterday I had so much fun stamping. I started with this sketch challenge from 2 sketches 4 you.
My card started off pretty simple and then you know how it goes...a little ribbon here, some glitter there, a few flowers here, some paper piercing around the edges. I was having so much fun I couldn't stop!
Here's a closer look at the front.
Both of the orange layers and the printed flowers paper are Bali Breeze designer series paper. I'm going to miss this paper when it retires. The word "joy" is from the Eastern Elegance rub-ons. I rubbed it right onto the orange DSP and placed a piece of Hodgepodge Hardware on top to frame it.
The scalloped glitter piece was made using a piece from the Confetti Simply Scrappin' Kit.
I used this 1/2" wide strip from the die-cut adhesives. In order for this to work right with the Scalloped Edge punch, don't use a strip that is less than 1/2" wide. I cut the strip out with the backing still on it so it wouldn't stick to my punch.
Next I ran it through the Scalloped Edge punch. See how skinny it is now? That's why you don't want to use a piece less than 1/2" wide.
Next I cut the scalloped piece to the correct size. I placed it next to the Old Olive layer (because that's how wide I wanted it) and cut it. I like making the scalloped piece larger than I need because then I have options of where I want to cut it. I don't like it when the left side starts with a full scallop and then the right side ends with just a sliver of a scallop. I centered my scalloped piece so I had a 1/2 of a scallop on both ends. I hope that makes sense.
After my scalloped piece was cut to size, I pulled off the backing and poured my glitter all over the side with the adhesive. I added adhesive to the back (the green side with numbers) and attached it to my card.
I finished my card with all the usuals--paper piercing, ribbon, and dimensionals. As always, thanks for stopping by! ~Dannie
