Royal Blog Tour

This stop features a stamp set new to the 2009-2010 IBC, Circle Circus. I chose this set because of the versatilty of the stamp set. It can be used as the main image or background on a card. I really wanted to do a 3-D project for the tour, but due to time constraints with the passing of my dad and deadlines, I was not able to complete one for you. But I do have several different projects that shows the versatilty of this stamp set that I was talking about.

The first two cards show both a the stamps being used as a background and as a feature image. The one on the left uses Taken with Teal, Basic Black and Whisper White. I also used a stamp set that will be available in the new Summer Mini, Go, Graduate, and Basic Black satin ribbon and a white jumbo grommet.  The card on the right uses the colors, Lovely Lilac, Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, Whisper White and Basic Black.  The ribbon used is the wider grosgrain ribbon in Basic Black.


These next two cards show the images used as the focal point. The card on the left uses Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, and Whisper white. The sentiment is from Vintage Vogue. The colors used on the card on the right are Bashful Blue, Whisper White, and Pacific Point. You may recognize this color as being part of the In-Colors of 2008-2009. With the Color Renovation, this is coming back as part of the color Stampin' Up! colors.




This following card uses the stamp set as both a background and feature image. The colors are Crushed Curry, Rich Razzleberry, Soft Suede, Old Olive, and Whisper White.


The last two pictures of the cards that I created using a One Sheet Wonder (OSW) and the images from the Circle Circus set to make the image sheet. The colors are Certain Celery, Bashful Blue, and So Saffron.




Finally, blog candy. Anyone that leaves a comment and/or becomes a follower, will be entered in a drawing for the stamp set Itty Bitty Backgrouds. Make sure to leave contact information in your comment so I can contact you, if you are chosen.
