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.

Birthday, Masculine, Stampin' Up!

I used the stars image from the stamp set, Star of Light to create the background.  I used Black Momento ink for the rest of the stamping.

Don’t you love these amazing Layering Circle Framelits? They make it so quick to add layering to your projects. I added some Black Metallic thread behind the circles before adding them with dimensionals to the card.
