CTMH Spotlight Blog Hop – Circle Cards

Welcome to the Spotlight Blog Hop!  This month we are featuring circle cards using our fabulous new product from the just released Fall/Winter Idea Book!
If you came from Jena's Blog your on the right track.
My first card is something I had fun with playing with my new Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge and my favorite colors.  Here was how my scrap play day started. 
1) New Product arrived in the mail!!!
2) Play with Cricut - cut a 5 inch Circle, OOOOH love that butterfly soooo pretty.
3) What colors should I use?  - Love Gypsy, Smothie looks nice with it, and My favorite color of all time a hint of Juniper
4) What if I use that butterfly as a stencil and blend my favorite colors with a sponge (one at a time of course)
5) Take stencil off and WOW LOVE IT.  now to add something to make it look like a card.
6) Use my favorite stamp to add a great verse Treasure Life D1306, add some fuzzy ribbon, some glitz, buttons, and had stitch around the edge.

My second card is for my son's first day of school and a different shape for a circle card.
 The pattern was from WISHES book pg 129
The white letters are from the cricut Art philosophy (Size 2)  the stamped images are from Aug Stamp of the Month "Wicked"  The paper is fanfare.

Now continue the circle and see what
Luisa has created.

Circle Cards

To see the CTMH Spotlight Blog Hop – Circle Cards Go to
These are also great circle cards and hope you enjoy looking at my Blog.

 Three circle cards Finished.  The first is my favorite.  Using some scraps of orange and gluing them in a sun pattern than stamping over them with the jar stamp (see B1393 in the NEW fall/winter 2011 Close to My Heart Idea book page 94)  This was where I got the inspiration.
 Using my favorite paper "Veranda" I made this elegant card.  The scallop edge is done with a fancy scissors.  I used a large white daisy flower and in the center a scallop punched circle stamped in matching ink and attached with a metal brad.  I have the perfect friend to give this to because she needs to know how Amazing she really is.
This was the simplest card made.  White circle card with a black circle in the middle. A corner of pattern paper and finish it with coordinating paper and a cute tag to mark the occasion.
