Circular Set - Noon Time Challenge


Welcome to today's Noon-Time Challenge at Flourishes - it's your chance to create and enter to win the set of the day!  Today's theme:  Round and Round - it's easy, just use a circle as the base of your card!

Today I created a sweet little set of cards with the Mother's Words of Wisdom set.  I wanted to show you how great the set looks just stamped in various colors.  Because it's so detailed it gives such a great impression colored up or not :)


Really simple and quick actually, just using the Grand Calibur and the smallest dies of the Grand Circles and Grand Scalloped Circles Dies,  with matching ribbons and gems as accents.  Here are individual shots of each card.  And you can see each of the wonderful quotes too.  


Old SU Paper Brilliant Blue (my last sheet!) and Memento Danube Blue Ink.  I also colored this white twill ribbon with my B26 Copic.  



This one is Razzleberry shade with Memento Lilac Posies Ink.



Rose Red with Memento Rose Bud Ink.  

and my favourite of course is....


Lucky Limeade and Memento Pear Tart Ink.  

Sweet, simple and still polished as a set.  Join us in the challenge!  Upload your link on the Flourishes Blog on our Noon-Time Challenge post!  

Stacy, Sharon, Dawn and Cindy all have Round and Round creations for your inspiration today as well!

Wow, what a great way to use this stamp! Sometimes time is a factor and you masterfully showed how fabulous this stamp can used just stamped in colored inks. Love this pretty set.

Christine, I love, love your round cards and the wonderful colors you stamped them in! And I do love and appreciate the fact that you stamped every one of the sentiments in the middles. It's a small detail but one that I love and appreciate :)
