More Scallop Circle Die Projects!

This sweet little basket is made using 2 Scallop Circles joined together at the sides with a little sticky strip. The Embosslit die 'Scalloped Heart of Hearts' was used to decorate the front and I have used Stampin' Up's gorgeous Flower Brads to hold the handle in place. The handle is cardstock, covered with the lovely Rose Red Seam Binding ribbon :o)

What could be simpler? A Scallop Circle, embossed with the beautiful Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder - a couple of Jumbo Brads and a little Seam Binding Ribbon - all used to create a wrap for a couple of bars of choccie ....... yum :o)

Aren't these cute? Each one is a Scallop Circle folded to create little favours ..... these holding delicious mini easter eggs :o)

All these projects use the wonderful new Springtime Vintage Designer Series Papers (£8.75).

Bag-a-lopes - With Scallop Circle Die

These cute little gift bags are called Bag-a-lopes because each is created using one of Stampin' Up's gorgeous Vanilla envelopes (page 87 £5.75 for 40).

I have used the Scallop Circle die (again!) to create the tops for them. Each is embossed with one of the Embossing Folders now available in the Mini Catalogue :o) I also heat embossed them with Clear Embossing powder to give the effect of leather - this isn't clear in the pics - but it does look great :o)

Embossed Frame

At my Stampin' Up! parties this month, I have been demonstrating how to create an embossed frame using the new Embossing folders from the Mini Catalogue.

The following cards all use the Vintage Wallpaper folder ... which is my current favourite :o) All the designs are clean and simple and really quick to do. The first two use the beautiful Wedding Wheels single stamp (£6.95) - also from the Mini Catalogue and the Tiny Tags set from the main catalogue, together with its matching Jewellery Tag Punch.

The final card uses one of the stamps from the Hostess Level 1 set, Punch Potpourri. The sentiment is from the Hostess Level 2 set from the Mini Catalogue, Something To Celebrate :o)

Patchwork - Scallop Circle

Box Lid :

I created this box to be a focal point on my Inspiration Table :o) It's big! The height is 20cm and the base is 14.5cm square.

The patchwork was made up of 1 1/4" squares and glued to a 5" square of Whisper White cardstock. This was then centred over the Scallop Circle Die and cut in the Big Shot. I used 4 of them for the sides and 1 of the 'waste' frames for the lid :o)

The Designer Series Paper used is Springtime Vintage - from the new Mini Catalogue. I created the Flowers using the Fun Flowers Die - creased them and split the paper layers before daubing the edges with Platinum Shimmer Paint.

The ruffled ribbon is the new Seam Binding in Baja Breeze - this was just pleated randomly onto sticky strip. I also threaded a small piece of this ribbon through the button - yet another product from our new Mini Catalogue :o)

Scallop Circle Die - Small Gift Bag

Another of my projects from my Inspiration station at Amanda's training day :o)

This cute gift bag was made using 2 Scallop Circle die cuts. I cut these from Confetti White cardstock and covered the outside with some of the beautiful Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper.

The flower was made using the Fun Flowers Die. It's been spritzed with White Frost Shimmer paint mixed with Rubbing Alcohol so it's all sparkly :o) Hidden inside is one of the lovely new Big Springtime Vintage Designer Buttons, threaded through with Seam Binding ribbon.

The Butterfly is from the Beautiful Butterflies Die cut in Cardstock Vellum and coloured on the reverse with the Stampin' Markers. I have added Dazzling Diamond glitter all around the wings and Basic Pearls down through the body.
