CCC #33.... going in circles

Hello friends!!  Tuesday is here and that means time for a brand new CASology challenge!  There were lots of fabulous entries for last week's challenge and with the cue word being "circle" this week I know that there are going to even more fabulous entries!!  All the details can be found here.  This week our guest designer is the very talanted Kim!  Make sure to leave her some love!!




I have to say that is this probably one of the few times I knew immediately what I was going to do when it came to my dt card.   One of my very first stamping purchases was this really fun stamp from Hero Arts called Large Artsy Circles.   It is a border-type stamp which are pretty useful when it comes to creating a CAS style card.  Simply stamp the border, add a sentiment and you are done.  I stamped the image in a color I don't use alot when it comes to papercrafting:  orange.   I then added some rhinestones and the sentiment (also Hero Arts) which I thought was rather appropriate given that I had used the rhinestones.   I rounded two corners for additional interest.

Thanks for stopping by.... make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Tracey, Jen, Ardyth, Judy, Maureen, Meghan and this week's guest designer, Kim. Can't wait to see what you come up with using this week's cue word!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Hero Arts; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black & Tangelo; Rhinestones:  Stampin Up! and Want2Scrap; Fiskars corner rounder

The happy orange is so great! I am a fan for sure!

Ardyth Percy-Robb said...

This is so fun - there's a lot going on but because they're all open, it's still very CAS. Love it (and the bling, of course!)

Melissa said...

This is CAS perfection, Rosemary! Love the simple circles and the perfectly placed gemstones and sentiment! I also really like how you rounded the corners of the main panel while using white on white!

I have always liked this stamp but could never quite figure out how to use it. Thanks for the inspiration.

Oh, I love, love this, Rosemary! I'm saving this design idea in my go-to all-purpose card folder. It would be equally fantastic in ANY color!!

Hello Rosie
The first impression when one views this card is "How lovely" Just two stamps, and the initial response ...easy! Ha, if only, I say to myself, it is perplexing to read 'I knew exactly what I was going to do' these words are so alien to me in my creative world. Your Colour choice is perfect for this design, the card is stunning.
Smiles:)

Meghan said...

This is the kind of card I aspire to make! Perfectly clean and simple and it has that "wow" factor!
