Happy Wednesday To You! Tina here from Cards and Coffee Time, Today for my Design Team Project I created an adorable card using Sugar Pea Designs Story Book Circus Stamp set. You can find this stamp set at the Scrapping for Less Shop.
My husband and I took our 2 girls to the circus when they were 6 and 8 years old. Popcorn, black top hats, swirly lights, silly clowns, juggling, lions, tigers and no bears:) Allie our youngest jumped at the chance to ride the elephant, she grabbed her dads hand and went to wait in line. He was gianormous!! (my word:)) I told my Emily lets go… The look she gave me I will never forget, she was terrified. We sat in the stands watching Dad and Allie climb the steps to ride the elephant. When it started to walk around the arena with those two on it, Emily started crying crocodile tears and didn’t stop until they were off the elephant. I thought she was upset because they went without her. Later, I asked her why was she so upset…she said because Daddy and Allie are hurting the elephant and that they should have rode the one wheel bikes:) She has such a huge heart:) When I first saw this stamp set it took me back to that wonderful day we spent at the circus:)
I love the sentiments in this set because they are so versatile. Just for fun, Birthday, Congrats, Happy day and Just Because. I started this card off by stamping and coloring 3 of the lion images with my alcohol markers then used the coordinating dies to cut them out. For my card base I used distress inks to color the background. For added interest I created a striped circus tent kind of element with red card stock. I also added red glitter glue to the hoops to set them on fire. This is such “Spectacular” stamp set, I had so much fun making this card:) You can watch how I created this card on my YouTube Channel.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Don’t forget you can purchase this stamp set at a super great price! Grab your coffee friends and lets make a card today! Hugs, Tina
