*warning* this post contains excessive excitement and exclamation marks.
Seriously, it's time to get excited, because There She Goes sneak peeks start NOW! My jaw dropped when I saw the outrageously awesome stamps releasing this month, you are going to have a serious case of the wants!
Today we are kicking things off with a new set from Torico called Life Is A Circus....so let's get going!
I LOVE this set. I'm going to say that for every day of peeks, but really. Love. Torico has given us some adorable images, not least of which this bear! I have him balancing on a ball. I went for a bright/vintage take on this card - I've paper pieced the bears little costume, cutting out his head and ruffle a second time to layer on top so everything is just so.
See that polka dot banner, nope, not patterned paper, it's a stamp and outline! Woohoo - I just love it!
This was never going to be a mail-able card, so I went nuts with some feathers and sequins and lots of dimension. You just have to get crazy sometimes!
I had to shadow stamp another bear on the inside of my card, and added more sequins to those fun burst images.
