Life Is a Balancing Act

Hiya! :) Thanks for all the comments regarding the new 'do here on the old blog-o! LOL, I don't know if the new look will take up residence and be here for a while, but I'm having fun playing with the colors in the meantime. :)

This card was created using the new Circus Fun set from Clear & Simple Stamps. I love that little elephant silhouette! It's a little hard to tell in the photo, but I stamped the row of elephants with versamark and heat set them with clear embossing powder. To date, I think heat embossing is still my all-time favorite "technique"... So simple, so fast, so pretty! :)

Have a great one!

  • Create blue A2 card base and round upper right and lower left corners.
  • Stamp elephant image using Versamark ink and heat set with clear embossing powder.
  • Adhere ribbon and bow.
  • Stamp sentiment onto white cardstock, punch out with die cut.
  • Adhere rhinestones to sentiment and attach die cut label with pop dots.
