Life is a Circus


Life truly is a circus around my house lately, so this card is totally appropriate!  Stampendous recently released several circus themed stamps, and I love them. Here's a look at how I made it:
  • Cut card base and panels from card stock 
  • Stamp Circus Poster image on cork; set aside 
  • Sprinkle Aged Scarlet enamel on panel, heat set from underneath.  Add ink to edges directly from pad and with a sponge (as desired). 
  • Stamp Carousel image on small panel, add ink to edges with sponge (accent edges of panel with ink directly from the ink pad). 
  • Stamp sentiment on small panel, add ink to edges with sponge (accent edges of panel with ink directly from the ink pad). 
  • Stamp Lil’ Joker, fussy cut, add ink with sponge. Place gold brads over buttons. 
  •  Adhere all pieces to card base as desired (note: foam tape was used for carousel, sentiment, and Lil’ Joker). 
  • Tie twine through button, adhere above carousel.
Supplies: 
Stamps: Circus Poster, Carousel, Lil’ Joker, Life is a Circus (Stampendous)
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa (Tsukineko); Brushed Corduroy, Barn Door (Ranger) 
Card Stock: Kraft-Core Scarlet Red (Coredinations); Kraft (Bazzill); Cork
