Dotty



This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge we are going dotty!  From polka dots to spotted papers, stamps to dots made with a pen, or even embossed dot cardstock, we invite you to get dotty with us this week at the  Monday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp

I was inspired by the thoughts of dots and pulled out this fun pattern paper using the dots.

When I thought of the dots in the paper it reminded me of the circus and I decided to pull out the Stampendous circus stamps and create a card using Circus images. I used plenty of contrasts of black and red and white and cream. 

My second project is a tag using the same papers and Stampendous Circus Stamps:
I had the left over paper from the previous project where i had punched out the circles with the stars and thought it would be fun to use it on the corners.  I also had a few scraps of black cardstock with the stars punched out.  I cut them into banners and added a few of the punched out stars in a circle to put in the center of the stars. I dressed my little joker in a coordinating outfit. I stamped him twice once on white cardstock and the second time on the pattern paper to cut his outfit and hat out.

I made the ring from bronze wire and attached leftover stars around the circle. A fun circus card!

  1. Suzz...I love this! The black and red and white is so striking. I also love all of your stamped images. So vintage...but it your work that really pulled them all together and made them come alive. The tag is brilliant! I so love that bronze wire with the left over stars attached and the little clown sheepishly grinning in front of it. It's it funny what catches our eye? I love everything you've done on this project! <3 Candy

  13. How fun to see not one, but TWO stellar projects for this theme! I loved the curly delicate cuts you made! I also have the Circus stamp you used, but I guarantee that I never would've thought to use it as brilliantly as you did! Nicely done!

  17. I just had to come by and tell you how much I *love* your circus piece. The composition with the tickets and ribbons framing the great circus poster stamp is wonderful. And the black and white back ground with the red and white stars ... genius!! Pinned! -- Mary Elizabeth
