Here are a few of the Pinterest pins and my take on them with commentary. I apologize for the photos. Oddly, I usually forgot to take any pictures of the cards and only remembered when they came across my desk to sign.
This really was one of my very favorites. The pops of color and simplicity work perfectly together. My version used Spellbinders Birds on a Wire & Sentiments 3 dies
Here's the original post
This next one was really fun and so stinkin' easy! I used Sentiments 3 again and pulled out an older set, the Classic Ric Rac Edgeablity dies. Part of why it was so easy is that I had 2 of the Ric Rac die and used painters tape to hold them together and down to my paper. That made die cutting plenty of chevrons fast and simple.
Here's the original pin.

Since I didn't have a scallop die large enough to create the opening size I wanted I had to create my own. Here's how!
- Cut mat to your finished size to make it easier to line everything up. This will also help avoid trying to cut narrow margins around your finished "negative" frame.
- Cut your first scallop rectangle with the bottom lined up where you want it. This photo shows the original big scallop rectangles cut from my cardstock
- Reset the scallop die so that you're actually only cutting a portion of the shape
