IOD Night Divine & **NEWLY RELEASED STAMPS** Plus a tutorial

So I have been absolutely loving my IOD/Unity is a layout in which I used touches of the Provencial Collection "My Dear" stamp set.
The papers are from IOD "Night Divine".

**In this post I will also be sharing a tutorial on how to make the pleated scalloped border on the circle...VERY EASY to do!

I handmade all the flowers to coordinate to the layout..lately I have been very stuck on making flowers...such an easy way to quickly match your blooms to your project. The centers are from IOD.

Here are a few closeups on the stamping...I am alway son the lookout for script stamps, I was ecstatic to see it be a part of this set.

Here is a shot at the postage stamp.
Products Used: Papers: Night Divine(#26917),(#26916),(#26920),(#26919),(#26927); Cardstock stickers(#26923);Epoxy stickers(#26924); Brads:Loolah(#26501);Rhinestones/Pearls: Loolah(#26500); Stamps: Provencial Collections "My Dear"(IOD783-A)

Pleated/Scalloped Circle Border Tutorial
*Scalloped border punch
*Hot glue
1. Cut your 12 inch long strips..for a 10 inch circle, you need four 12 inch strips, punch them with your desired border punch.

2. Cut the strip apart in 2 scalloped sections. (as shown below)

3. Fold each section in half, creating the "pleat". (as shown above)

4. This is what they should look like...

5. Place a dab of hot glue on the bottom of it...

6. ..and adhere to the back of your circle. Adhere all your scalloped sections.

7. This is what your circle will look like once you are finished.

Well I hope you find inspiration within my tutorial. It's truly a quick and easy way to make a pleated/scalloped border on your circle. If you decide to try it out, I'd love to see your link back to me! =)
