Celebrating in Circles


Have you ever seen a stamp set and thought "Not for me" only to see a sample that makes you buy $100 worth of product to make it?  This is one of those cards for me.  The Balloon Bash stamp set from the Occasions catalog did not speak to me when I pre-ordered.  I didn't instantly have ideas and I try to use that as my guide to keep me from going overboard.
 
Then I participated in the Creative Convention Online with Ronda Wade and Maggie Patterson.  This was a set that obviously spoke to them and they used it for one of their make-n-take packages.  Once I started playing with it, I couldn't stop.  I have taught several of their cards for my workshops and it's gaining fans like crazy.  It's even made me like the color Crushed Curry! 
 
The only change I had from their card was that I colored the brads with the Coastal Cabana Blendabilities Marker. 
 


Sorry for the shadow - until recently, Spring days have been at a minimum and I'm still working on my picture taking of samples outside!


Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Coastal Cabana, Pool Party, and Best Year Ever DSP
  • Ink: Crushed Curry
  • Stamp Set: Balloon Bash
  • Accessories: Big Shot & Cutting Mats, Magnetic Platform, Basic Rhinestones, Coastal Cabana Blendabilities Marker, Circles Framelits, Scissors, Dimensionals, and Adhesive
It makes for great gender neutral cards, which is great since we have an obscene amount of February birthdays to celebrate this month!  Come back tomorrow to see my favorite card with this set!
