Fabulous Circle Circus & CD102

Ok, let's get inky! Today's color challenge at the Color Dare is sure to inspire a variety of ideas. I can't wait to see what everyone has created! This week's colors are:

I don't know about you, but I'm diggin' it! :)
Do you like the words framing the panel? In case you are wondering, here's how to create the look in a few easy steps.
  1. First determine where you want the stamped layer to go on your card front.
  2. Put it in place on the card  - without adhesive - and use a pencil to lightly trace the top and left edges.
  3. Move the stamped panel aside and stamp your words in place. 
  4. Let the ink dry and erase the lines. (I use a white art gum eraser - no smudges and the lines come right off!)
  5. Adhere your stamped layer with Stampin' Dimensionals.

    Using our Clear-Mount stamps made it easy to see where I was stamping. However, for perfect placement with these stamps and especially with our Wood-Mount, I recommend using a Stamp-a-ma-jig. Once you get the hang of it, this tool will be one of your BSF - Best Stampin' Friends. Smiley
