One of the nice things about being a Stampin’ Up!® demonstrator is you get to belong to this amazing Facebook group where we discuss issues and everyone posts their beautiful creations. I started to see a lot of card using this Layering Circles Technique and decided I wanted to try it. I think it looks pretty cool. Honestly, I can’t tell you exactly who “invented” this technique but there were many, samples with directions. That is another thing I love about Stampin’ Up!®. They encourage you to CASE (copy and share everything). In any case, you cut a bunch of circles using various dies and cut them in half. If you would like directions I used you can watch THIS video on YouTube.
I used the Stitched Shapes and the Layering Circles dies to make this card. I cut various circles in BumbleBee, Daffodil Delight, So Saffron, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate cardstock and then cut them in half. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Birthdays. I embossed the Smoky Slate background using Absolutely Argyle 3D Embossing Folder.
It has been a long crazy month in my family. We moved to Tennessee. We had a new grandson born (Jackson) and we have spent a lot of time with some of my other grandchildren. The house is still a disaster with lots of boxes unpacked but I try to do a little every day so I don’t get too overwhelmed. I would rather spend my time with my children and grandchildren and stamping when I can. It certainly has been a life change but thankfully, it is for the better!
I LOVE this card. I have been meaning to try this technique and just never remember. Great color combo, too
How cool is this?!! I’ll definitely check out the ‘how to’ for this one. Great colour combination, too.
I’ve seen this technique before but didn’t do anything with it. However, since I love your color combination so much, I have now written the instructions and plan to try it with your colors. Thanks for the inspiration. Beautiful.
Thank you! It was fun to do And not too hard.
