Scallop circle easel cards

Since it's school summer hols at the moment & we're about to start renovating our floor & kitchen, stamping time is a bit hard to find, so I'm trying to catch you up on some projects that I haven't blogged yet. Today's post goes back to August, to show you two scallop circle easel cards I made for friends of Cara. You might remember I went through an easel card phase here & here & decided to try a different shape, easpecially after seeing the lovely Liam make some lovely circle versions. First up is Sarah's ... bright, fun & girly.
And one for Taylah...
I was trying for a bit of a Twilight inspired theme with Taylah's as she's a bit of a Twi-fan (as am I).  Choosing the colours was easy, but I was a bit unsure about images until I remembered my all-time fave flourish from 'Baroque Motifs', which I think worked with the swirly butterfly stamp.

Both cards share some other similarities - the Timeless Type big shot alphabet for the letters (no more running out of certain letters - love it!) & butterflies, but I think the look is quite different due to the colours & stamps. I was pretty happy with how they both turned out & I think the girls liked them too. Hope you do too.
Well that's all for now. Thanks very much for stopping by. Leave a comment if you like what you see, or would like more info.
Inky wishes, Di

Hi Di,
these are both gorgeous!!I'm leaning towards the twilight inspired as my fav though. After borrowing the books from Sam I am also now a fan :)

Hi Di,
I think the baroque stamp is a perfect for a twilight card. I love both cards. Thanks for the link. Hope your renos go well and hopefully it doesn't take too long. I couldn't live without my kitchen for too long but I am sure it will be a great relief when you see the final results.
