Circle of Friendship


One of the Stampin' Up! promotions for the month of June involves a "bundle" made up of the Circle of Friendship stamp set, the 1-1/4" circle punch and the Love Notes cards and envelopes set.








I have spent the last couple of days having a play with this bundle, and once I started all I could see was circles! In the end I had to make myself stop *g*.


Here's a few things I came up with ...

Firstly my "Turquoise Trio" ... I have combined a few other punches into the mix and come up with these. They're very simple but quite effective.

Supplies used: Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White cardstock, Tempting Turquoise ink, CIrcle of Friendship
stamp set, Scallop, 1-1/4" Circle, 1-3/8" Circle, 1./2 Circle" and Double Rectangle punches, Tempting Turquoise ribbon, Love Notes cards.


This one was a lot of fun to make ... I love how the Jumbo Eyelets are exactly the right size to fit in the middle of the stamps. I trimmed most of the front off a Love Note card, and replaced it with a square of the Plum cardstock, then used the Round Tab punch to create a window in the front of the card (it's easy to do ... punch the Round Tab once, then rotate the card 90 degrees, line it up and punch again for a nice big circle window).

I also pierced the "petals" of the scallop for a little more visual interest.

The next card was a bit of fun to make, using another "circly" stamp set , Seeing Spots. I love this pink and brown combination. I wanted to try and make a regular sized card rather than use the Love Notes for this one.

This little set of cards is, of course, my favourite. Yup, Purely Pomegranate yet again. I took the "trio" idea and jumped it up a little with some other sets. The photo really doesn't do the cards justice, they are just so cute in real life.

Lastly, this one, a variation on the bib card from the other day. Because the Love Notes cards come pre-scored, I couldn't use them for this project, but it was easy enough to cut up a piece of Whisper White to 6"x3". I also used a piece of the designer paper from May's Pallete O Prints promotion.
