Circle of Friends

Here is another set I have sadly neglected-Circle Circus. For this card, I was actually just playing around and started adding elements and punched circles to the stamped background...and I kinda liked it! The White CS background was stamped with Circle Circus using Blushing Bride, Celery, Rose Red and Razzleberry stamped off twice! The solid circles are punched out from Blushing Bride DSP and tacked down around the edges! The Center Scallop was embossed on Springtime Vintage DSP and punched out and then the punched circle was added on top with the lovely rose!
~Stamps: Circle Circus, Tiny Tags.
~Paper: Whisper White, Blushing Bride CS, Blushing Bride DSP, Confetti Cream CS, Springtime Vintage DSP.
~Inks: Versa Mark, Rose Red, Celery, Blushing Bride, Razzleberry.
~Accessories: Heat Gun, White Embossing Powder, White Taffeta Ribbon, Eyelet Scallop Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, Jewelry Tag Punch.

Embossed Wedding Cake

It's Wedding Season so for this card I wanted to use the Blushing Bride DSP which is so pretty! To show off the paper I did a square card using a diamond shaped layout with the focal image in the center! I couldn't decide what image to use so I ended up making my own. I stamped Bella Toile on Blushing Bride CS with versa mark ink and embossed it with white powder. Then I cut three tiered rectangles to make the cake and topped it with a punched out small heart. This was such an easy monochromatic card!
Every year around this time I start pulling out some of the stamp sets that get neglected and try to come up with some new stuff! I haven't used Bella Toile in awhile and I was happy how this turned out!

Basic Pearls looked perfect along the edges!

I stamped the frame label on Vellum CS and then punched it out and colored just the bird with markers.

Then I added a few flowers using pear pizzazz and baja breeze inks.The edges were sponged with suede ink.

Mother's Day Layered Flower

Another layered flower card! I could just keep making these until I run out of Antique Brads...I love these flowers! For this flower I layered 8 flower cuts that were sponged with Regal Rose ink and no water misting on these just the layers crumpled up and layered on the Pear Pizzazz larger flower.
I stamped the scroll stamp from Barogue Motifs set on the newsprint panels using Regal Rose ink. You can never have enough Mother's Day Cards as I give them to my friends as well as my mom!
Happy Mother's Day you all!
