I see circles...

all weekend long :)

I made three cards this morning with 3 sketches I found while blog hopping over the weekend and they're all with circles.

First card is a sketch from Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #37. Image is from last years Stampendous, Mistletoe Pixies stamped on a Whisper White card stock, cut-out and raised with stamping dimensional and adhered to a circle punch Whisper White cardstock and layered it with Rose Red card stock. The base of the card (Always Artichoke card stock) and half circle (Pretty in Pink) was run through with Cuttlebug using snowflakes embossing folder. I used the same patterned paper for all 3 cards which I recently bought at Michael's.

The second card is from Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #61. Main image is Snowbound, again from Stampendous. The base of the card is Rose Red card stock and I randomly stamped snowflakes from Winter Wonder set by Verve Visual with embossing ink pad and sprinkled with Stampin' Emboss Iridescent Ice.

I didn't realize that I didn't put any sentiment on the first 2 cards right after I was making the 3rd card.

And the last card is a sketch I got from Jen, I{heart}2Stamp, Sketch For You To Try. Again the main image is from Stampendous, Pookie Skates. To add a little dimension to the card, Pookie's hat was stamped on a White White cards, cut-out and raised with stamping dimensional. The base of the card is Pretty in Pink card stock and same as the 2nd card I randomly stamped snowflakes from Winter Wonder set by Verve Visual with embossing ink pad and sprinkled with Stampin' Emboss Iridescent Ice. The sentiment is also from Winter Wonder set.
