Featured Stamper - dawnsing

I was so excited to see dawnsing (aka Dawn McVey) as the SCS Featured Stamper this week. She has an amazing clean, graphic style that I've been admiring for some time, so it was a real pleasure to choose one of her awesome cards to CASE. I picked this one because of its interesting layout and for its altered scallop punched circles. I kept the same layout and mostly the same stamps, but changed the colors and added a layer, the scalloped edge, and some bling.

[Edited to Add: The scallop circle punch is altered by snipping a "V" notch into every other scallop. Pretty cool, huh?]

Enjoy your day!



Stamps: All Holidays, Always, Frames with a Flourish (SU!)
Paper: Papertrey White; Basic Black, Pink Passion and Apricot Appeal card stock (SU!); dp from the "Secret Garden" Simply Scrappin' kit (retired SU!)

Accessories: crystal adhesive gemstones (Hero Arts); scallop circle punch, corner rounder, 1/2" circle punch, and pewter build-a-brad kit (SU!); wide grosgrain ribbon (May Arts); foam tape (source unknown)

Hi Amy, love this card. I must be super silly. How in the world is the scallop punch altered? I couldn't find this card on Dawn's blog depicting how to alter the scalloped punch. Is it hand cutting? Would appreciate any info on a tutorial somewhere that shows how this is done. Thanks! Keep up the beautiful work. I love your work!!!
