So many Scallops...

... So little time! Only 2 more weeks left of Sale-a-bration (ends March 17th). I love this Sell-a-bration set. There are so many occasions and cards for which you can use it.

Here is a really simple card. The use of the designer papers on cards (in this case, Fall Flowers paper, although these colors look more spring-like to me!) is a fast way to get lots of fun color on a card.

This card is pretty self-explanatory (just a little stamping, layering, and punching with the Scallop punch). There is just one little trick to explain though. Notice the little designer paper flower in the center of the stamped and punched scallop. Before adhering the strip of designer paper to the Soft Sky layer, using the 1/2" circle punch, punch one of the little flowers out from the paper in an area that will have the punched scalloped circles layered over it.

The Stem Sayings set that was also used with this card is a really versatile set. The sayings make great stems especially with stamped and punched images from the So Many Scallop set. But the sayings from Stem Sayings also make cute curvy sentiments like on this card.

The 5/8" wide Old Olive grosgrain ribbon wrapped and knotted around the designer paper gives a finishing touch to the card.

If you would like to see all the Sale-a-bration stamp sets you can earn for free before March 17th, check out the Sale-a-bration Mini catalog.

Also, there are more NEW items available starting March 1st in the Occasions Mini catalog. With the overlap of Sale-a-bration and the new mini catalog, you can order from the new mini and earn Sale-a-bration stamp sets too!
