PTI February Blog Hop!

Welcome to the PTI February Blog Hop! So glad you came by today! Our challenge this month is Scallops!

"We want to see your best use of scallops, of any sort, on a project! This can include scalloped borders, offset-scallops, stamped scallops, scalloped mats, scalloped frames, layered scallops, scalloped tags or anything else you can dream up! You can use dies, patterned scissors or even circle punches in a row to achieve your special look."

I have two cards for you today!  This first one is a complete CASE of myself from back in July!  I have always loved that card and when I think scallops I think of that card!

Since I had some new button stamps to play with, I just did some minor adjustments!  LOVE these new buttons!

For my next card, I took some inspiration from Jessica Witty! She recently created a card with crepe paper and made sort of a ruffle.  I had to try it with cardstock and scallops!

You might not be able to see but each layer is lifted for dimension!  This is one of my favorite color combos lately!  I love Melon Berry and True Black!  So fun!

So that is it for today!  If you want to go back to Nichole's blog you can see the BIG list of other scalloped creations!  Thanks for looking today!  Have a good one!

So, so cute! Love the first card, but I really like your scalloped ruffle on the second card too.

Love the first card and the pastels and that you used the buttons without the "card" and made your own, that is cute! I really like your color combo on #2 and seriously considered using that idea too, lol! Love the button in the middle!

Linda said...

Lea L. said...

These are both fabulous! But that first one just stole my heart! The colors are fab, as are the scallops, and I just love all the details you added to it!! Great job! ♥♥♥

These are both fantastic, Laurie! The first one is my favorite, with those darling buttons. Just a fabulous design and sweet colors!

You continue to create such beautiful cards. The first is beautiful, but there's something stunning about the second - the colors, the dimension achieved with the layers of scallops. Fabulous!

Heather P. said...

Cathy Weber said...

You have to tell us what die you are using to cut those scallops with the little impressions in them! I love your cards today. That button card is adorable and I just can't believe how striking melon berry and black are. No surprise, great cards today Laurie.

Monika/Buzsy said...

Lovely cards Laurie! Lovely scallops and colors... I {heart} the buttons. I used those myself. :o)

Michelle said...

Two great, but different, cards. I love the color combo and softness of the first card. I like how you cut a small slit on the bottom for your ribbon to go through. Your second card is very "mod". Leish is right, you do great things with Melon Berry and Black!
