Another Circle Circus Sneak Peek and Kristina's CI 55







I'll have to say that I really struggled with Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge this week---basic gray, rust, mustard, and vanilla... took me forever to come up with a plan. I decided to use my new Circle Circus set that will debut on July 1st. I chose 4 of the circle stamps from the set to stamp randomly on Very Vanilla CS and another one to stamp on the card base. I used a strip of More Mustard and textured Really Rust to anchor the Vanilla stamped piece to the Basic Gray card base. The ribbon treatment is adhered with SNAIL and then stapled at the opposite end. I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to stamp "just for you" on the Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon. That sentiment is from another sneak peek set---Teeny Tiny Wishes. I used the corner rounder to finish the bottom of the card. All products by Stampin' Up!
Thanks for stopping by!---Lisa
