5 Ways to Use Circle Stamps!

Hi friends! Sometimes it’s fun to see what you can make with a simple supply, in this case, circle stamps!

SAM_5602

Circles are fun shapes. Think bubbles and beach balls, they just scream “playtime!” You can go bright with confetti colored circles or use a soft palette for a gentle friendly pastel card.

Spring is here and that means babies!

I don’t know if statistically there are more babies born in the spring or not but it does seem like I get invited to more baby showers in the spring. Next time I’ll be ready with this cute set using supplies from Papermart:

DCF 1.0

Here are the supplies I used: Plastic Baby Clothespins in white ($1.20 a dozen), Baker’s Twine in light orange, Large Ric-Rac trim in white (dyed with spray inks), a Shipping Tag, kraft and white cardstock, a scrap of green paper, watercolor paper, watercolor pencils (I prefer Inktense) a sponge dauber and scalloped punch (or you can cut a circle with scalloped scissors.) Watch this video to see how I made this!

Variations: Look at the stamps you have, you could stamp bibs, diapers, tiny tee’s and socks and other baby stuff! Or you could stamp some swimsuits for a “Bon Voyage” card. Have fun with this design. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

DCF 1.0

These are a few of my favorite things….

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens…well, that’s nice and all but my favorite things are of course a little more artsy. I was looking at this card I made in June but had not posted (I had to wait to post it because it was published in the Winter 2011-2012 issue of Rubber Stamp Madness) and I realized that it used some of my favorite things.

Melon Mambo ink and Button Embossing die (Stampin’ Up)

Button Clear Stamps (Pink Persimmon, I also used the Soda Pop Alpha and Holiday Favors sets)

Promarker Blending Sets (Pastel & Muted marker kits)

Ribbon & Stitching (Grossgrain ribbon is from the Dollar Tree)

My Die cut machine (I used the mat from the Fancy Cupcake box SVG set by Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff)

So, what are your favorite crafting supplies? Leave a comment and let me know, I can’t wait to hear! Have a great weekend and til next time happy crafting!

Another Quick Card

This time it’s for a baby shower:

Stamps: About Art Accents, Cardstock: Bazzil, SU!, Ink: SU, other: Ribbon, twine, button, chalk

I use the baby carriage from Anita Louise Musette 3 Silhouettes Plate available for 50% off right now at About Art Accents, I love this plate, you get 16 silhouette-style red rubber stamps for only $12 and they are all so sweet, get yours before they are sold out!

Tip: To make a quick card chose a silhouette style stamp, since the stamp designs are solid you just stamp and go, no need to color, easy peasy!

The butterflies (…or are they moths?) are from the Cats plate from About Art Accents. You get 19 stamps (6 of which are butterflies) for $18, that’s 25% off!

This card qualifies for the followinf challenges: Annabelle Stamps (Ribbon), Caardvarks (embossing), By the cute and girly (old, new, borrowed, blue), City Crafter (button&bow), Creative Craft (ribbons and bows), Whoopsi Daisy (Ribbon&bows), Frosted Designs (buttons), KL Stampin& scrappin (shaped card), S2G (babies & blue), Marks Finest Papers (buttons and bows) and Gingersnap Creations (wings).

I also used SCAL to make this card, I welded 2 scallop circles together to make the base then ran the cardstock through my Big Shot with a Fiskars texture plate and inked the raised edges. The stamps are from Stampin Up! I scored the pretty ribbon at the Dollar Tree, they have tons of 6 yard rolls of organza, grosgrain and satin ribbon in gorgeous colors for a buck a roll! They look very similar to the SU! ribbon too.

What mom to be wouldn't love this?
