DT Tips: Layered scallops...

With all of the pretty Noted scalloped-edged dies that just came out by Papertrey Ink, I couldn't wait to use them again after the release. Today I have a few new ideas for you on how to use these dies!

On the first card, I cut a couple of the Noted: Scalloped Square dies out and trimmed a bunch of pieces that were 3 1/4" x 1" from the edge of the die, the stamped them with various stamp sets!

Here is the Noted: Scalloped Square die that I used. I cut a long edge and then trimmed it down into smaller pieces.
The stamp sets I used on the pieces are: Graceful Greetings IIBackground Basics: Super GinghamPolka Dot Basics IIIQuilted: Summer and Stitches & Swirls. Sentiment is from Cross Stitched. Two of the pieces have all of the colors in them, then I pulled those colors out onto the others.

The strips were layered, adhered at the top of each strip, then the scalloped edges pulled up slightly, so you can see the dimension.

On the next card, I cut two Noted: Scalloped Square dies and trimmed them down, then used one as a border, stamped with Quilted: Summer (triangles). The rest is stamped with Stitched Sentiments, Cross Stitched and Graceful Greetings II.

The circle die comes with the Noted: Scalloped Square set. I love those little embossed stitches.



On the last card, I had a little square of one of the Noted: Scalloped Square dies left over, so I wanted to add it at an angle on the top corner of the card. I stamped it with Cross Stitched, then added a sentiment and flowers from Graceful Greetings II.

Underneath, I added a couple more scalloped edges, then on the corner of the scallops, a little twine bow. :) Background paper is Green Parakeet.

I hope you enjoyed these ideas. Thank you for popping by today and have a great day!
Danielle
