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!
