Oh My God, I had such a fun time this weekend I cannot begin to tell you. I literally stamped until my fingers cramped, my eyes were blurry and my creative mojo went to bed without me. I love all my crafting sisters and it’s always so wonderful to get to spend time with them. I won’t go into all the laughter, “interesting” topics and what all we got into, but suffice it to say some of that might be why I was a bit blurry… Just sayin’
So today, I have a fun set that I know I have featured here before, but when it comes to fun cards for birthdays and such this one is great. It works great with grunge sets and can really go with most any font type for sentiments. So, yes. it’s a bunch of circles, but they’re versatile circles!
- I’m starting off with a bright and snappy birthday card in Pumpkin Pie and Real Red with a nice crisp white for my neutral.
All the circles were stamped and punched from white and popped up on dimensions save one. The sentiment circle is layered on a scallop circle of Real Red which, in hindsight I wasn’t sure if I liked, but the little extra bit of red was good so I left it.
The card is layered with two different strips of washi tape and the circles were added after. A few sequins and gems give this one some sparkle. Gotta have sparkle for a birthday right?
- My second card is a variation on one I did a month or so ago with my little group of stamping ladies at work. In fact, I had parts and pieces left from that class so I just used those to start things off. The only difference here is the addition of the Blackberry Bliss panel. My class card was all white except for the bright flowers we used.
Here, I scattered the circles in Lucky Limeade, Rich Razzleberry, and Smoky Slate over the three strips making sure to leave room for my sentiment of course.
No bling or embellies on this one. It really didn’t need it and this one went together in a snap. Perfect for that “OMG, I need a card FAST” moment we all have once in a while. LOL!
- My last card today is a rich mix of Bayou Blue, Basic Black on crisp white.
I started with stamping several of the circles in both Bayou Blue and Black directly on the card before I pulled out the washi tape and layered together a couple patterns in the appropriate colors over what I had stamped . I then added the punched circles over the top along with the little sentiment oval. Black gems and a Bazzill Mysterious Teal backer panel finish this one off.
Have a fantastic week everyone!
