Circle Circus Inspiration

Have you ever stumbled upon a card and absolutely fell in love with everything about it? I sure did! When I saw this one, I knew I HAD to CASE it...which is a pretty rare thing for me to do! I used a slightly different shade of blue and a different embellishment then the original, so I guess it had a little originality. (*wink, wink*)

One of the great things about being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is every month we receive a fabulous "demo-exclusive" magazine delivered right to our mailboxes. It is filled with loads of great ideas and inspiration. That's where this beautiful card sample came from! Just so I give appropriate credit, this card is from the May 2010 issue and was created by a fellow demonstrator, Lisa Nichols.

This card uses one of my absolute favorite stamp sets, Circle Circus! This stamp set is so versatile on cards for any occasion! Every image in this set also coordinates with a punch so it makes it THAT much easier to whip up a beautiful card with perfectly cut-out circles, EVERY time! Also included on this card are three of the new colors introduced in the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog: Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist and Early Espresso. See the full product list below.
