BG challenge blog 5: scalloping

Scallops seem to be everything atm. The challenge this week on the BG challenge blog is to make a card that includes scalloping.

This is similar to the one I made earlier for this week's DCM dare. This time I've used BG figgy pudding papers, a Dovecraft ribbon along the bottom that says 'let it snow' (but doesn't show up in the scan, because it's glittery). The main embellishment is from the DCWV new winter collection and the little 'joy' chippie is Brenda Pinnick. Once again there's also a sprinkling of Poundland bling.

Some of the scalloping doesn't show up that well on the scan because the layered papers are similar, so they blend in together, but irl it's more obvious. The card opens from the bottom, not the side.

I'm liking using turquoise and burgundy together atm:

Tanda teaser 66: just for you - another one!

Another of those lovely image foam stamps from QVC - background paper is BG sugared.

World cardmaking day

I meant to say this earlier - today is world cardmaking day - you can find out about it here

So, have you made any cards today?

DCM: what a load of scallops!

Keryn set this week's DCM challenge: 'Use your imagination, your scallop punches, your corner rounders, your cricuts and cuttlebugs to create any card to fit any style as long as it shows scallops.'

I've used papers and embellishments from the new DCWV winter papers and the piece of ribbon across the bottom is one that's been lurking in my Christmas stuff (think it's Brenda Pinnick). The scalloped edging was done on my rotatrim, and a bit of Poundland bling:

It opens from the bottom, not the side, so it stands on its scallops.

Tanda teaser 66: just for you

I haven't done anything for Tanda teaser for quite some time, so thought I'd join in this week.

Wendy said: 'The theme this week is 'Just For You'. We don't need occasions to make cards so let's make a card for someone - just for being who they are!'

I used a stamped image that I acquired a long time ago - it was a 'round robin' thing in which a stamp was passed around and you had to make something with it - and I did loads of images and still have one or two left!

What a PIF!!

There's a PIF going on on CBC - and this is what I've received this morning from Maddy.

Yay!! What a super box of goodies - papers, vellums, chipboard, ribbons, stamps ... and much more, as you can see.

Thank you so much, Maddy.

Now I need to get a package together to send to Net to PIF.
