Flying High, Under the Big Top

Posted on

I am having a blast with my new Under the Big Top stamp set, from Stampin’ Up. Although I have stamped and colored a bunch of images, I have only finished 8 cards so far with this set. The first card to make it into the center ring of my circus features a lion.


   Before I could take the photos of my cards our cat Zelda decided I should take her picture first.



Zelda didn’t appreciate it when I told her she had to move so that I could photograph my cards. She thinks that she is my favorite and that I shouldn’t pay attention to anyone or anything but her!



This card is not my original idea. I saw this cute circus train car here at Handmade Spark. The original card with this image sparked my interest in this set as soon as I saw it. It was the first set on my order list when I had my SU workshop a few weeks ago.


It never ceases to amaze me  how changing the background color on a card can change how all of the colors pop on the card. I think that this color is my favorite for this set.



  Woot, Woot! Circus train coming through.

Happy Stamping,

Paper crafting is my Yoga. It takes my mind off any stress that I might have at the time. My daughter loves to get involved in my projects too and it is a great way to connect with her. Sixteen years ago I began scrapbooking but, my new true love is card making!
