Here’s a simple card I put together using one of my free Sale-a-Bration sets: She’s All That. From the moment I saw that set in the Occasions Mini Catalogue I absolutely loved it! Best of all the supplies, including the scallped edge were created using all Stampin’ Up! supplies. The main image was stamped in Chocolate Chip Craft ink and clear embossed. IWhen stamping solid images I just love using craft ink and clear embossing it as I find the image seems to be richer and have more depth to it.
I’ve listed all the supplies, including the dimensions at the bottom of this post.
By the way, I’m so excited to report I finally managed to figure out how to use my watermark. Beth Silaika created it for me about a year ago, and I just could not figure out how to get it onto my picture. Finally, today….success! Of course the only problem now is that the copyright says 1995-2007 – oops! I guess I’ll have to email Beth and have her update it for me!
Mini Tutorial on Creating a Scalloped Border:
As we all know, scalloped edges are all the rage right now, which explains the popularity of the Nestabilities die cuts. While I do have these die cuts and I love them, spending that much money on the dies and the die cutting system is not an option for everybody. So here’s a fairly quick and super easy way you can create a scalloped border using your Stampin’ Up! punches. Although I used the small oval punch, you actually could use any one of: 1/2" circle, 3/4" circle, small oval or large oval punches. The best thing is that you can use this one method to create a scalloped edge for any size of circle, oval, square or rectangle.
Punch out a bunch of small ovals out of scraps of CS and cut them in half. Using your two way glue pen, attach them to the back of the oval on which the image is stamped. As you attach them, be sure to overlap them slightly as shown in the picture. That’s all there is to it! While it looks like it would be time consuming it really isn’t.
