Circle Circus - A Brand New Stamp Set!!!!


Can you tell I'm a tad excited!!! I really am!!! You see I got my Brand Spankin' New Stampin' Goodies today... oh the joy when I had not ONE but TWO boxes of goodies arrive!! As the gorgeous Shell (my lovely Blogging Buddy... waving to you!!!) said the other day... 'I needed a sedative and my Blankie to calm down!!! hahaha

Anyway.. all of my new stamp sets are already cut ready to mount... yep one of the benefits of the NEW stamp sets in the NEW SU! Catty. Think of all that time saved and all that extra stampin' time... Again OH so exciting!!! and then add to that a Brand Spankin' absolutely NEVER EVER seen before stamp set...yep, us Aussie Demos are the very first to get our hands on this one....Gosh I think I'll need two Blankies!!!!

Ok.. I think I've calmed down enough to show you what I came up with. Of course I had to have the thinking cap on extra tight tonight, given there aren't any cards around made with this set. Sooo... to you want to see??? Of course you do... GOsh I hope you're not disappointed after all this excitement.

The new Stamp set is called 'Circle Circus' and it is just lovely!!! Soooo much potential here.
And here is my card:-

I've used the very pretty and also BRAND NEW Pink Pirouette as the card base, with a layer of Close to Cocoa and Kraft. On the Kraft I've stamped one of the circle stamps from the set numerous times to act as a 'Background' stamp. Then I stamped the Scalloped Circle from the set in Pink Pirouette and again in Close to Cocoa to get the extra centre bit, which has been mounted on dimensionals and had a splash of Dazzling Diamonds added. Well a Brand New Set definately deserves some Bling... doesn't it?? haha I used my Round Tab Punch to create the larger pink circle behind it and then added some linen thread before attaching it to the lovely NEW Pink Pirouette Ribbon. The sentiment is from Short and Sweet and is stamped in Close to Cocoa on Pink Pirouette card.

So there you go... I hope it was worth the wait, and hopefully I've convinced you to GET this gorgeous set.

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to come back soon... I've got MORE new sets to play with!!!!

Hi Sarah,
Just wanted to say hi. I was on split coast stampers aswell trying to find a card to case for the new Circle Cirus set. I didn't know that it was new. So your card was the only one to go up. Yeah you. It is a lovely card and great colours. I didn't actually buy the set but was at another SU demonstrators house and punched out some circles. Will hopefully have my card up by tomorrow and then there will be two out there to case. Thanks for sharing.
