Going Around in Circles

Happy Saturday!  And this is a happy Saturday indeed – not only is it a Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop…my summer class is OFFICIALLY OVER!  It ended last night and I just have to finish up some grading – WOO HOO!!! For the month of June we are going to be using songs from the 80s as our theme.  I must admit…I’m not familiar with this song.  When I think of a song about circles, I think of “All My Life’s a Circle” by Harry Chapin…okay dating myself!  But…I have all kinds of circles on my card…and absolutely NO STAMPIN’!

I used the fancy circles from the Chase Your Dreams thinlets

  • Basic Black – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Lovely Lipstick – punch out a 1 3/4″ circle and 1″ circle, add to card front
  • Silver Glimmer – punch out 3/4″ circle, add to card front
  • Basic Black -3 1/2 x 4 3/4, run through Maps, Etc Embossing Folder, layer onto the Pool Party 3 5/8 x 4 7/8 (I did back side up)add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – cut out the two ‘fancy’ circles (you have to trim those little extra pieces off the smaller one
  • Pool Party – 1/2″ circle, 1″ circle and one where you punch out the 1/2″ circle first then punch out using 3/4″ circle, layer everything together and add to card front
  • Lovely Lipstick – punch out three 1/4″ circles, add to card front
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/4 x 3 1/2, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Lovely Lipstick – cut out “dream”, add to silver glimmer strip
  • Add some rhinestones to finish off

I do love all the circles on this…and I think the black just really sets it off!

Itty Bitty Greetings

Happy Monday everyone!!!  I just CAN’T BELIEVE it is the beginning of July already.  Where is the time going!

So here’s our inspiration picture…

I was inspired by the colors on this and the overall flower feel and decided to use This was one of those challenges that I went through a couple different ideas.  Did my first one and it was a lot like Connie’s so I changed it.  Ended up with a really simple card.  Here’s it is…

Here’s the details…

  • Gorgeous Grape – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Heather Highland – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, run through Tufted Embossing Folder, layer onto Whisper White 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Gorgeous Grape – cut out circle
  • Whisper White – cut out matching scallop, add Gorgeous Grape circle and add to card front
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/8 x 3 1/8, add to card front
