Circle Circus, Clean and Simple

I like this new stamp set (Circle Circus) but have had trouble figuring out how to use it. This layout is from which is my new favorite blog. I colored the main image with the new in-color markers after embossing it with clear embossing powder.

I love the clean and simple look

The floral card was inspired by a layout on This is going to be my fav new site because I am a clean and simple kind of gal. The pear card is going to be one that we will make at a Summer class at my church. I am trying to come up with some cute cards using up some retiring supplies.

New Toys Round 3

The card with the birds is made with a Level 2 Hostess Set called 'The More the Merrier' and the floral card was made with 'Razzle Dazzle.' I used my Scor Pal to get the grid lines on the floral image--just score the cardstock first, then brayer on a background color and then stamp the focal image.

New Toys Second Round

I had a little more time to play with the new toys tonight. The floral card uses a new stamp set called 'Razzle Dazzle' that coordinates with the 'Razzleberry Lemonaide' designer series paper. I used my new in color markers (thank you SU! for making markers for us this year!) to color the floral image. The card with the pheasant stamp was made with a stamp set called 'Autumn Days.' The colors on this card look funky in the photograph and better in real life. Check out the polka dot ribbons which are also available in all of the new colors!

First Play With My New Toys

Wow this is my second day in a row posting here! Unfortunately my stamping time is nearly zero because my daughter no longer naps since the Binky Fairy came. This means I have no 'self' time.

The above card was made with my new toys. I splurged and express shipped my new 'In Colors' and preview stamps that will be in the new catalog. The stamp set used above is called 'Circle Circus' and it is stamped on designer paper called 'Razzleberry Lemonaide.' The base of the card is Melon Mambo cardstock. By the way, my Melon Mambo stamp pad smells like cherry Koolaid! I was pleasantly surprised when I opened it. Isn't it cool how the stamp matches the little silver flower?
