Quick Creative Tip #4

Last week was a crazy week and because of it I didn't post a Quick Creative Tip. My husband got extremely sick and I'm amazed at how taxing it can be when I lose my team mate. One of the many reasons I love being married is having a partner in everything, and when he gets sick, he checks out and it's hard to function solely by myself. But alas, I made it, and here's this year's fourth Quick Creative Tip: Pierce the petals of a scallop to add additional decoration. 

I love layering circles on top of scallops, but it's so hard to just leave the petals of the scallop blank. I have a habit of piercing the scallop's petals to help make it look a little better. It looks so bare without the piercings. If I can't find my paper piercer (which happens quite frequently), I take a marker the same color as my card stock and mark a dot on each petal.

Stampin' Tips:

  • Color Scheme: Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Chocolate Chip, Strawberry Slush, Pear Pizzazz, and Whisper White
  • DSP: SAB Sweet Sorbet
  • Stamp Set: SAB You're Lovely
  • Accessories: 2-3/8" Scallop Punch, Paper Piercing Too, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Blender Pens
  • Stamp the "I think you're lovely" sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink. You will notice that this image is more than just the circle featured in my card. Use Blender Pen with the Pear Pizzazz and Calypso Coral ink pads to color the leaves and flowers. Punch out the circle using the 1-3/4" circle punch and adhere it to the scallop using a dimensional. 

Happy Stampin'
