Love Circle

Hello!  I had so much fun working with this scissor stamp from Chocolate Baroque's Haberdashery set!  A positioning tool called a Thing-a-ma-jig was how I lined up all the scissor stamps to create the circle.  I used Memento ink in black.  A complete list of supplies and instructions on how to make this card follows the pictures.

Black and pink go so well together!



Supplies -

Chocolate Baroque Haberdashery stamp set - longer scissors stamp
Chocolate Baroque Artistic Expressions set - "Love"

Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Circle dies
Spellbinders Grand Circle dies
Spellbinders Fancy Labels dies
Flower, leaves and Cheery Lynn Lace Butterfly diecuts given to me by a friend
Copic markers - R81 Rose Pink, R85 Rose Red, RV13 Tender Pink, C1 Cool Gray No. 1, C3 Cool Gray No. 3,
Stampin' Up markers - Pretty in Pink, Going Gray, Black,
Cardstock - Stampin' Up - Pretty in Pink, Rose Pink, Black and White
Pink 1" satin ribbon from stash
Adhesive pearls from Zva
Pop-dots or adhesive squares, 1/8" thick
Memento inkpad in black
Sponge dauber
Tacky glue of choice

Cut one Rose Pink Grand Scalloped Circle using the 3rd largest die.  Score and fold a sheet of the Pretty in Pink cardstock in half, then using removable tape such as Painters Tape, position the next largest Scalloped Circle die with the scalloped edge just on the edge with the opposite side hanging beyond the edge of the folded cardstock.  Sponge edges of scallops with black ink.
 
Find the center of a sheet of 8 ½” X 11” white cardstock and mark with a pencil.  Using the Thing-a-ma-jig, position point of long scissor stamp from the Haberdashery set, on the center spot and stamp in Memento black ink.  Continue to stamp the scissors around in a circle with the scissor point on the center dot, and the beautiful edging on the handle just touching.  You may not have enough space to stamp one more to complete the circle, but that’s OK – you will use the “Love” label to cover it.  Color and shade the scissors as desired.  Using the Circle die that just fits inside the 3rd largest scalloped die used above on the Rose Pink cardstock, center the die on the scissors, and cut out.  Glue “scissor” piece to the Rose Pink cardstock, then that to the Pretty in Pink piece, offsetting the bottom edge scallops.
 
Trace around the outside edge of the Fancy Label die in black cardstock, and cut out.  Stamp “Love” word from Chocolate Baroque Artistic Expressions set on white cardstock using SU’s Going Gray inkpad.  Shade and color in using the Copic markers.  Cut out using the Fancy Label die from white cardstock, centering over the word “Love”.   Using Pop-dots or dimensional, adhere the “Love” label diecut over the space not filled in with a scissor stamp on the white circle.  Position leaves at the center and left of the label, then apply bow (tied with a Bow-easy), using strong adhesive.  Place flower over edge of label and leaves.  Place pearls in place, and add the butterfly diecut.  Decorate inside as desired.

I hope you'll have fun making this for yourself or someone you love!  I think it would be pretty with a sunflower or daisy in the center.  I'm off to try it!

All my best,
Clare
