It’s time for another fabulous CAS-ual Fridays Challenge – this week challenge is to create a CLEAN & SIMPLE project and include SCALLOPS in your design! Loves me some scallops, don’t you?!!
Our phenomenal sponsor this week is Annabelle Stamps, an Australian online stamp store. And boy do they have some deliciousness in their store – I noticed some twine that MUST belong to me, and some stamps that are A-MAZING!! Annabelle Stamps has also provided a prize to this week’s TGIF Winner, but you’ll have to hop on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog to find out what it is . . . a girl’s gotta have some secrets, right?! *wink* Thanks, Annabelle Stamps, for being our sponsor this week!!
This was such a fun challenge for me . . . I love scallops!! But I decided to create scallops in an unconventional way. I recently became the proud new owner of a delicious new heart border die from Memory Box. Oh my goodness – it’s a die cut and embosser all rolled into one, and it cuts like BUTTAH!! So I got a little die cut happy . . . LOL. I die cut out several heart strips out of different cardstocks and designer papers and adhered them to a card base. Then I die cut a scalloped label and stamped the sentiment right smack dab in the middle of the label (heat embossed it with some EP from Michael’s.) I tied my fave-a-lave baker’s twine around the scalloped hearts for interest and voila!!
