Dreams du Jour

This is another of the Fab 4 swap cards I made for friends, Mary, Julie and Liz.  I love the soft look on this one!  I used the Pink Pirouette base, with the Pink Pirouette floral print from Bella Rose, then softened it with a layer of cardstock vellum over top, secured with pink mini brads.  The bottom of the vellum and designer paper were both scalloped with the new Scallop punch.

The focal point, I used a 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 square and punched the Scallop punch (centered) on each side.  That gave me a little scallop frame for the postage Love stamp.  I tied some taffeta ribbon around one corner and added a cut-out butterfly to the other.  I watercolored the Love stamp with my Blender Pen and the ink pads Kiwi Kiss and Pink Pirouette.  Again, I LOVED how this card turned out!

Hey demos…check out the September Stampin’ Success!  My winning Schoolhouse Rocks submission is photographed in there!  Woohoo!!!

I have a class tonight, some assignments due AND a Stamp Camp this weekend!  Crazy busy this week!   However, I did get my bank breaking order placed yesterday with EXPEDITED shipping!  Hope to get it by Thursday so I can play!  Woohoo!!!

I love how you used the long scallop punch. I am definitely going to case your card.

It was fun to see and talk with you at convention.
