A Round Array

Hello everyone!!  I'm finally back after an extended Spring Break.  I wanted to do simple cards using the new A Round Array stamp set and die cut designer papers from the Print Poetry Designer Paper Stack.  Using the Top Note Bigz die, I cut several pieces of patterned paper and group them into two coordinating sets.  I cut one die cut into two pieces and mix and match the patterns. Below are two of the mixed patterned paper die cuts I put together which will be the starting point of my cards.


I stamped the sentiment and two medallions, using the A Round Array stamp set, with raspberry ripple ink on vanilla card stock.  I punched the three stamped images with the 7/8" scallop circle punch.  I also punched, from blank vanilla card stock, additional scallop circles to layer with the stamped scallop circles so I can make "faux" buttons.  I stacked four scallop circles with the stamped one on top to form a "faux" button and sponged raspberry ripple ink all around.  Using my crop-a-dile, I punched two holes on the medallions so I can tie the linen thread.


I used raspberry ripple card stock for my card base.  I dry embossed a 4" x 5.25" vanilla panel using the Fancy Fan Folder.  I used one of the mixed paper pattern die cut and centered it on the panel and added the "faux" buttons  in a straight line down the middle of the die cut.  Update:  I added the crumb cake ribbon because the first card looked flat!

The other card was made with midnight muse card stock.  I dry embossed a piece of baja breeze card stock using the Woodgrain embossing folder.  I centered the die cut mixed patterned paper and tied the linen thread in the middle.  I stamped the medallions and sentiment with daffodil delight ink and punch with 1/2" circle punch.  I also punched coordinating patterned paper with the 7/8" scallop circle and used dimensionals to attached the stamped images.  How simple is that?  I love that floral patterned paper!

I only used a couple of the images on the A Round Array stamp set.  Here's the full set.

That's all for today.  I'll finish the other mixed patterned paper die cut card and share that tomorrow.

Until then..........
