Combined Challenges

Today I combined two challenges. This is the card that I did for the Sketch Challenge and Ways to Use it Challenge. Right away knew I wanted to use my colors that I found over at Oriental Trading. So I got out my Simple Shapes set and stamped my circles onto my white cardstock. I then went back and "outlined" them all with the outline circle that fit each solid circle. to make sure it all lined up pretty, I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig. I also used it for my sentiment but after three tries I gave up. I should have stamped the sentiment before adhering all my layers. I think the thickness messed up the positioning. After 4 tries I gave up. So my tip is... when using a stamp positioner on the card base, stamp BEFORE you adhere any layer.


Here is the DCWV card kit that inspired my colors for today and yesterday. The kit is also my inspiration for the circles and the sentiment. I just love these colors. They really work great for funky cards. I am wondering how they would work for more traditional cards. HMMMM? I will have to try it out. But for now I must go get prepared for my workshop this weekend.

Stamps: Simple Shapes & Much Appreciated Inks: Tempting Turquoise, Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery and Cameo Coral Paper: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery and Cameo Coral Accessories: Stamp-a-ma-jig, turquoise grosgrain

OMG I love the colors....I have to start using my stampa-ma-jig more often this card looks awesome. Before I read your notes I said how the devil did she line each and every circle up! TFS
