I love ze scallops

ze fish - oh we had some dee-lish ones at a japanese restaurant last weekend

ze potatoes - i love the cheesy goodness of this scalloped dish

but my favorite scallop of all

ze scallop punch
no thats not some kinda funky drink
its a wonderful punch for paper shtuffs by marvy uchida
Witness the cuteness:

I had ordered these punches months ago. They are quite a popular item - not surprising huh? Scallops have always been a favorite of mine. I used to try and use my scalloped scissors but its difficult on things like ovals kwim?
Anyway, I received them yesterday. It took maybe two minutes out of the packages before I was a punchin fool. (I got the larger scalloped oval punch and a smaller oval punch - they nest one inside the other just right).
For these cards i used my quickutz cupcake die, a Cuttlebug embossing folder (i don't have a cuttlebug but the folder works just fine through my Zipemate) and cardstock and Doodlebug paper scraps I had in my stash. I made two of each color and I might just make more. I know I am going to get a ton of use out of these punches.

These are so stinking DARLING! I hope people can see how amazing that embossing thingy is. Way, way cool. I'm pretty pumped about getting my scallop punches too. Looks like fun. I've got some major cleaning up to do first. Sheesh.

I can't even count the number of times I've cruised our local stamping/scrapping/crafting stores and even online to try to get these exact punches - can ya tell I'm a little burned with the punch search?? I'm so glad you found them, what super cute cards you're turning out with them!
