I really enjoyed the BBTB challenge using the adorable images from Peggy Loves Vintage and had a hard tome choosing which one to use for that challenge. All of them were sooo cute so I had to make another card this time using the circus image. The round shape made me immediately think of the Happy Birthday downloadable stamp set from The Cutting Cafe because I thought the circle frame would be perfect. I cut the card on my Cricut using the Doily card in blackout from Wildcard. I printed the circle frame on cardstock, cut the outside by hand and discovered that I had a Nestie circle that would cut out the inside perfectly. WooHoo!
I printed the Peggy Loves Vintage image 3 times because I wanted to use the decoupage technique to add dimension and added tiny pompoms to the clown's shoe and hat. I just love the funky pinata paper from the cupcake collection by Basic Grey and thought it was so festive and looked great with the image.
Regina's downloadable stamps are so easy to work with and I'm particularly fond of this set because it has cute sentiments as well. I think this one is my favorite. I cut it out with my Nesties label 4 and backed it with 2 presents cut and embossed with my Cuttlebug combo and a Nesties scalloped octagon. It's so much fun using these downloadables for a card because you can finish a card in a jiffy with truly amazing results. Peggy Loves Vintage had CD's of darling designs for all occasions. And while you're at the Cutting Cafe be sure to check out the fabulous All About Mom set that's available too! There's still time for Mother's Day, but this set would be great all year long.
