are you a fan of organic circles?

Well I certainly am. I love me some good polka dots, but get those circles a bit imperfect and a whole nother world opens up. IMO.

Take these snowmen stamps, for example. The newest in a lineup of layering stamps from The Bees Knees over at STAMPlorations. I have been having so much fun - and not of the snowman sort - with the circle shapes.

Meet card #1.


Somewhere, sometime I saw a B/W poster of Twiggy with rainbow polka dots in the BG. So I chose some Adirondack "natural" ink colors and stamped the dots after I'd stamped the sentiment and image from One Cool Chick.

Taking #1 to:
Rubber Dance - November (got a chick instead of a bird here ;)

Sparkles Forum - Autumn Colors

Decided the cool chick was going to go to a 14-year-old. Then I decided to make a card for her younger brother.

Meet card #2.


Now I must admit I had no plan when making this one. I stamped the outlines, deciding to do the top two rows in the opposite direction of the bottom two to stir things up a bit. Well, when I was done I felt eight pairs of eyes looking at me!

So then I decided to be tricky with my sentiment. It's layered. Get my drift? Do you know what I made the card say? Try reading from the bottom to the top (layer, that is!)

Used the You word and Essentials by Ellen Folk Hearts dies too.

Taking this card over to:
613 Avenue Create - Anything goes with optional masculine twist
The Color Sisters - #48
