Bon Voyage Blog Hop

Welcome to Port of Call #34 on Stampin' Addicts 2009 Bon Voyage Blog Hop! Nestled snugly between ***Ports of Call #33 and #1, here we explore the Ronald McDonald stamp set for this past year Say It With Scallops. This set is a great collector's set, because a different set comes out each year. For every set sold Stampin' Up donates $2.00 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. One announcement before disembarking: the tour links are only active through 11:59 pm Tuesday June 16; after that, many hostesses will post more details on projects you see today. Bookmark your favorite stops now--on return visits, you'll bypass customs & immigration and go straight to the fun!
Say It With Scallops #111678
$17.95 Set of 4

Pretties Thank You Card
Supplies include: Basic Black Ink, Basic Black, Real Red, Summer Sun, Whisper White card stock and Pink Flamingo DS Paper. Punches: 3/4" Circle and Square Scallop Punches. A Large Prettie from the Pretties Kit. As you can see I stamped the image in black on white and then cute the square out and stamp the image again with black on red and punched that out and layered. Very simple card to make.
Congrats Card.
Here I wanted to show that you don't just have to use the square scallop punch with this stamp set. I used the 1 3/4" Circle Punch to Punch out my image and layered it on a scallop circle I die cut using the Big Shot and the Banner Die. I also used one of the Textured Plates and the BS to give the red paper some depth. I used Real Red Ink and paper, Black card stock, Striped Red Ribbon, and both sizes of Star Punches. Again, another easy card to make. Love Stampin' Ups Punches!
Pink Flamingo Small Comp. Book w/Matching Pen
This is just a little comb book that I altered, using of course the Hi Stamp, Pink Flamingo DSP, Whisper White, and Tempting Turquoise card stock, Square Scallop Punch, Colored Brads, Scallop Edge Punch, and Real Red Striped Ribbon.
Puffy Box and Tag
This is my last project. A cute little puffy box which is made by using a cd for a template and a little tag using the For You Stamp. Say It With Scallops is a great little set for making quick and easy tags. Again I used the Pink Flamingo DSP, Cameo Coral Ink and Tempting Turquoise Grosgrain Ribbon. Check back next week if you'd like a link to the directions for the box. Now for some BLOG CANDY! Leave me a comment for a chance to win a Hostess Stamp Set Level 1 named Darling Dots. (You must have a United States address to win the candy) I hope you've enjoyed your visit here at port of call #34. Please come back after the tour is over for more information on these projects. Your next port of call is #1 with Yapha. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

Thanks for pointing out that just because an image is square, we must use the square punch! I'm looking at my stamps a little differently now!

Beautiful and fun projects to match a terrific stamp set. I'm always sorry to see the RmH sets go after just a year. And each year I fall in love all over again.

Thanks for sharing the fun, creativity and inspiration. I'll be back for sure.
