Layering Circles cards

CCS Logo 2021-22

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 19 – Gorgeous Grape

Today I have two cards using the Layering Circles Dies that I have been wanting to try for a while now. But let’s talk about this gorgeous purple tone and the colour combination I have chosen, inspired from the Hand-Penned Suite!

Colour Combination - Gorgeous Grape Blushing Bride Mint Macaron

By cutting the following Layering Circles Dies, two cards can be made:
1⅜” (1 x Grape, 1 x Macaron)
1⅞” (2 x Blushing Bride)
2⅜” (1 x Grape, 1 x Macaron)

Each of these circles are cut in half and then layered on top of each other to create these simple designs. This first card is put back together in a circle shape!

Cover the join with a sentiment (stamped on Tasteful Labels dies) and some Gold & Mint Macaron ribbons. I also added some die cuts in Gold Shimmer Vellum to add for a little extra shine.

My second card is pretty much the same, but I have offset the two half layered circles. I love the effect this gives and a totally different look.

Add the sentiment across where the two halves join and I also added a stamped flower and ribbon bow.

  1. Lovely cards Kate and a great technique which I would love to try. The DSP and card stock colours are so pretty together. Love your second card where the circle halves have been offset.

  2. It looks like you had a lot of fun with this technique, Kate! I especially like the offset circles on the second card. Love the DSP you’ve used (I don’t think I have cut into that yet – it’s so pretty!) on both cards. x

  3. What a creative and fantastic way to get more out of your dies, Kate. And yes, I agree with you your colour combination is is soft and lovely – I love both of these cards!
