Fall/Winter Sneak Peek: New Scallop Edge Punch

Stampin up scallop border punch
It's day three of my Sneak Peek Mini Marathon and I'm simply pumped to show you what I believe will be the "it" tool of the Stampin' Up!'s Fall/Winter Catalog (available Aug. 11).  The new Scallop Edge Punch ($15.95) is a precise and easy way to create scalloped edges and shapes in a snap.  No need to develop one scallop at a time with a Corner Rounder Punch (as I have done and posted about for months).

Here's a basic photo tutorial on creating the border for today's card.  However, take note.  This little powerhouse offers endless possibilites for scalloped squares, rectangles and more.

Insert card stock and line it up against the groove.

Punch and slide card stock either left or right, lining up your newly created scallops with the scallops on the punch.

Punch and line up until you're done . . . Got it?  Is that sooooo easy?

Are you smiling yet?

The card base is Pink Pirouette (4.25 x 5.5).  All designer series paper used is from the Fall/Winter Level 3 Holiday Happenings Hostess Level III Bundle (plus it includes four Seasonal Icons stamps and Seasonal
Sayings rub-ons in Chocolate Chip and White). 

The sentiment is from the new Fall/Winter release, Heard from the Heart, four long and beautiful stamps.  Great possibilities for using markers to isolate or create multi-colored images.  It's inked in Baja Breeze and stamped on Whisper White.  A Dew Drop (the Cowboy Collection) gives a little extra pizzazz.  Chocolate Chip and Kiwi Kiss is layered below. 

The scalloped edge is in Baja Breeze card stock and I slipped in a layer of Chocolate Chip card stock between the flower paper and the Baja.  The last snippet is a matching piece of Holiday Happenings Designer Series paper, shaped with my Photo Corners Punch and topped with some Robin's nest Dew Drops.

Please leave me a comment on what you think of the new stuff.  I appreciate the feedback!

Hugs and Pretties . . . Mary

  1. Love all the new goodies you’re showing!! I’m having a hard time with my punch–I can’t seem to get it lined up correctly and I’m punching some of my scallops twice. I seem to keep too much paper still in the punch before punching my second time. I guess I’m so worried that I’m going to have a gap that instead I’m double punching scallops and it’s making them have a notch in the top of them.

    Hi Amanda:

    It takes a little practice. When you make your first punch, slide your paper either left or right (whatever is easiest for you) to the point where you see the last full scallop outside of the punching area. When you are prepared to punch again, be sure the card stock scallops you punched line up with the scallops on the punch itself–then be sure it doesn’t slide before you cut. Practice 🙂 M

  2. OOO! Love this one. Definitely must have the scallop border punch. And LOVE the new paper.

  3. Possibly the single greatest punch ever invented! Thanks for the tutorial!!
    I always love what you create with dsp, but my ‘collection’ remains unused…now I’m hoping this inspirses me to try to use it this week.

  4. very nice!!! I am so worried about getting the scallops lined up to punch the 2nd time! I love the red!!!!!!

  5. This new punch looks wonderful – I can see myself getting one of these when I can. I so love the look of scalloped edges on cards. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I love SU’s punches of any kind because of their quality and I’m sure this new scalloped punch will be equally good. How much? Also, is this SU’s answer to scalloped Nestabilities? If so, would there be any need to order a scalloped Nestabilitie? Love the paper! Are we going to see more colors of polka dots in dp’s? Love the darling card! I love SU’s corner punch. Don’t know what I’d do without it!

  7. Lovely card! And love at first sight for this new punch. Glad to hear your thoughts after having actually used it yourself. Definitely will be on my list in August!
    Thanks!

  8. I’m also mega excited about getting this punch….it’s going to be too too perfect!!! Joan

  9. Love it! Isn’t that punch a must-have? I’m headed over to my blog right now to upload my first batch of preview cards right now…

  10. Love this punch! I do have the scalloped edged scissors but it’s difficult to keep the line straight so this would be SO much easier!
