DeNami Simply Scallops Blog Hop

Welcome to the January DeNami Blog Hop! This month we are celebrating scallops!


If you started from the beginning, you just hopped here from my very talented friend Michele's blog! If not, you can always go HERE to see the full list and start from the beginning! Be prepared to be wowed by all the fun creations out there for you today!

So, let me share my scalloped cards with you!

I used the DCWV Scalloped paper for this! I just cut the ends off and layered them up for a pretty ruffle! I scored each ruffle about an inch in, and then folded at the score line to give it some dimension! These adorable stamps are all from DeNami! I used their new Scalloped heart, the Heart Flower Trio and the With all my heart sentiment! Love that font!

This next card uses the same DCWV paper! I just took out a piece and folded it in half making a 3 1/2 x 7 card! I wanted this card to coordinate with my first card, so here I used the full image of the Heart Flower Trio! I have to tell you....that is one of my favorite stamps! Such an adorable image!!

I left this card clean and simple! I paired it with the Happy Valentines and of course, some bling! Those scallops make the card I think!
