WMS sketch, All Booked Up


I knew I was in trouble when Susan, at Simplicity, posted a blog post about the PTI set All Booked Up. I love reading, and obviously, I love making cards. The set is far too much fun and I've only had it in my hot little hands for 24 hours. This card uses the Waltzing Mouse Stamps sketch. Their sketches always push me to think outside my normal box, it's like a creative work out every week. I made the first attempt of this card yesterday, and left it to sit and think about it... then today I came back and added a few more smaller circles (I stamped a Stampin Up circle stamp on top of an already stamped image and then paper pierced it out to be different sizes). I'm not sure if I'm done tinkering with the card, but I think I'll post it and leave it, for now. KAH-Wink-E-Dink and Crafty Ho's are doing a challenge of primary colors, so I'll enter this in those challenges too.

Materials: PTI All Booked Up stamps and sentiment, Stampin Up circle stamp, Versacolor red/blue & bamboo ink,Stampin Up black ink, Stampin Up circle punch, Paper Source circle punch, Cream card stock

That's right. Blame me for Nichole's sins. Sheesh. SHE is to blame for this. It's ALL HER FAULT. If she'd just stop designing perfect stamp sets, then I wouldn't need to mention them on my blog, and we'd all have more money in the bank.

The funny thing is, I haven't bought the set yet. But someone sent me die cuts to go with the book plate and so of course it will soon be mine. Can't let those die cuts go to waste, now, can I?

Your card is wonderful! I love the colors and the layering of the circles!

Lovely card and lovely set of stamps...but I can't find the mention of it on Susan's blog...I must be blind. I read it every day...need new glasses.

I love this this! It is on my 'to do' list. I think like the last one, once I've got my image figured out, it will just come together.
