Going around in Circles

Good Morning, today's "design of the day" is a card that can be used for men or women and is a lot of fun to make! 

I just got this new stamp set and could not wait to give it a try.  There are so many different circle patterns that I could not make up my mind which to use so I used them all, as you can see below.  This technique of overlapping stamps with different colors and designing an all over background pattern works with many of the Stampin' Up! stamps but it works particularly well on this set.  The scalloped circle that pops out on the cards left side was created by using my markers to color in different portions of the stamp and giving a 3-D illusion. 

Fun card to make!!!

Stampin' Up! items used in making this card:
  • Bravo Burgundy, Marina Mist, Pumpkin Pie, and Whisper White Smooth Card Stock
  • Marina Mist, Pumpkin Pie and Bravo Burgundy Inks and Pens
  • Dimensionals
  • 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Extra Large Punch
  • "Circle Circus" and "Bring on the Cake" Stamp Sets

If you like to use punches over scissors, each of these stamps fits a Stampin' Up! Punch.

I hope your day is a great one!
