Scallop Topper Tag Punch for the February Blog Hop

Feb Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals February Blog Hop! This month we are excited to share with you what we love about Stampin’ Up! – our stamps, tools, accessories and techniques.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Shirley Sumption at  Look at my Cute Stuff, #26 on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

Starburst Sayings, Sweet Sorbet, Fresh Prints

So glad you are hopping by! I have two projects for you today! Card-making has gotten just a little challenging for me because I am not using my craft room at home right now and have only brought the “essentials.” You get used to having all of your supplies at your fingertips but this promises to be fun because I brought all of my new Stampin’ Up! products from the new catalog and Sale-A-Bration!

I have two projects for you today, both using my new favorite SU tool – the Scallop Topper Tag Punch! My card today is dreaming that Spring could possibly come soon! My card started out with Fresh Prints Paper Stack. There are so many fun prints. Then I layered the absolutely gorgeous Sweet Sorbet DSP (you gotta get it and it’s FREE with a $50 order!).  The Scallop Tag Topper Punch turned out so cute with the stretch trim. The flower was punched (7 layers), then moistened, scrunched and left to dry. Once dry, a brad was put through all of the layers and topped with a pearl.  Whatcha think?

My new obsession is making the inside of my cards pretty:

Love You More, Scallop Tag Topper Punch Love You More, Scallop Tag Topper Punch 2 Love You More, Scallop Tag Topper Punch 3 Love You More, Scallop Tag Topper Punch 4

I made this fun little gift holder, inspired by Heidi Weaver (www.heidistampinalong.blogspot.com).  I changed the dimensions from her instructions to 8.5″ x 5″ sheet of DSP/cardstock and scored at 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″ to make the sides. The bottom is scored at 1.5″. Slide the paper into the punch so that the score lines are at the edge of the punch. Remove the other extra paper between the punched sides, then sticky strip it all down. Stamp and decorate to your heart’s content and fill with your little treats – like this:Love You More, Scallop Tag Topper Punch, Gift Bag

I wanted to point out that the vase was made with the owl builder punch! And the Petite Petals stamp set and punch can be bundled to save 15%! This little bag can be used for anything you want to use. I hope you liked my projects today! The Scallop Topper Tag Punch is very versatile, which makes it so worth the investment.  I would love to know what you think of my different uses of this punch so would you please leave me a comment?  And, while you are at it, sign up for email notifications and “like” my Facebook page!
