Emily is so sweet. She posted this weeks color challenge with a link to Shane’s Wish website.


I like the look cutting half circles out of designer paper to add a circle embellishment or accent inside that cutout. It is being used in a lot of scrapbooking magazines. I thought it would be great for a card as well. I checked the gallery for this challenge and a lot of cutesy images were already being used. So I used just the Big Deal Alphabet to stamp hi on my circle. I inked up the letters with Cool Carribean classic ink. I stamped it off once, then outlined the rubber with Taken with teal marker and stamped little cirles from Bundle of Joy on the stamp. I huffed on the stamp and stamped the image on whisper white cardstock.

The circle is punched out with the Mega Marvy circle punch and then layered on a Taken with Teal Gigal scallop circle.

The designer paper are from the Love me and Petals & Paisley Designer Paper packs. My card base is a 5 1/4″ Marigold Morning square card.

The ribbon is, as always May Arts ribbon, from Starlitstudio.

  2. Geez, I was not sure how I was going to like the combinations today, but it really is nice. I think I will try it when I get home. I like the cut out look too. Makes a bold “here I am” statement.

  3. This is fantastic, I love everything about it. I love the simplicity, I love the colors and I especially love the cut out half-circle, it adds a real symmetry to a card. My son and his friends would think this card is awesome, as do I.
