Say It With Scallops

oh this set is fun! 4 images stamp in a scallop shape, then you punch it out with the matching scallop punch! Marvellous!

I used Certainly Celery, then Baja Breeze ink on the edge of the stamp (Rock 'n' Roll), onto Shimmer white paper, Stamped large flower from Embrace Life in blue, then layer papers from Green Tea DS paper.

I dyed White Taffeta ribbon by pulling it thru Baja Breeze ink pad, then I saw the tech on someones blog - unravel one edge of the ribbon a bit, then pull on 1 of the threads running the length of the ribbon, and it will start to gather (with my numb fingers, it would've been faster to run to the sewing machine to gather it!! LOL) Doesnt it look PRETTY all ruffled?

I backed the scallop piece with Not Quite Navy and Old Olive textured paper, and roughed up the edges. Finally a light blue Rhinestone brad in the corner.

UDI Diva Challenge #5

This is my take on the Challenge- you can see the Inspiration Pic here-

I used new In Colors Pacific Point, and Baja Breeze, One Of A Kind stamp set, and Baja Breeze DS paper stamped with Pacific Point ink with flowers. Silver Hodgepadge Hardware, and Baja Breeze striped ribbon.
On the first card I used White gel pen for all the dots, but SERIUOSLY need some new glasses, since the corner dots arent straight! Sorry to show you that, but I wanted to 'step it up' a little from th e original one in the bottom pic! Oy!
Have a great day!

Do you Haiku?

OH. MY. WORD!! Seriously...Who could'nt LOVE this stuff?!?! lol

This basket is from the new SU! Sizzix BigShot Baskets and Blooms die!!

2 half-sheets of Haiku Designer paper, passed once thru the machine with the die, and I made 2 baskets, and all the flowers and tags!!! I am never hand cutting a template AGAIN!! HA!

I added the new Kiwi/Vanilla double sided satin ribbon, and some random buttons. Perfect fit for a gift card, little candies, and LOTS of LOVE!!

BellaRose & Baja Breeze

Ahhhhh....Sweet Bella Rose! I used 9 or 10 of the 12 Bella Rose paper patterns! Had to try to show it all! I love Shabby Chic! 1 1/4 x 1 1/4 squares, layered onto Chocolate Chip, and my infamous scallop flower-on-a-circle (seems I do a LOT of those...) with Choc dotted 5 Petal Flower Punch on top and a red button. LOVE!!!
Always set, with bird stamped in Baja Breeze on Whisper White, overstamped with Choc Chip saying. Choc Chip base card, Baja Breeze layer, dotted Choc Chip scallops, and stamped-by-me background paper, using Boho Backgrounds stamp set.
Baja Breeze......the new Soft Sky...which was the new Cool Caribbean!! LOL (HA! MaryBeth!!)
Bothe these cards were for Jamis July new color swap on SCS.
