Today we want to share with you some ideas on using the Simply Circles stamp set!
This set came about because I often create cards where I've used all sorts of embellishments and just need a simple circle sentiment to finish it off. Especially useful for the centres of flowers! Instead of using buttons or gems, you can just stamp one of these circles and bingo, perfect for the flower! Just like I've done here with the Spiral Flowers stamp set:
Of course the circles can also be used by themselves as you can see here:
I've used different Adirondack inkpads for the different circles, then punched them out with a circle punch.
* To punch out the big circles with a border - use a 1 1/4" circle punch.
* To punch out the big circles without a border - use a 1" circle punch.
* To punch out the smaller circles with a border - use a 1" circle punch and without a border - use a 3/4" circle punch.
I hope that makes it easy for you guys when you use these stamps!!
Isn't it stunning! Sarah has some details on how she made the card:
I stamped a flower from the Viva La Flora Vol 1 stamp set over some cream patterned paper, then used the "Thanks" stamp from the Simply circles set to create the flower centres. They were stamped onto the same patterned paper then punched out with a 1" circle punch. I then inked around the edges and mounted them to the flower centres using foam mounting tape.
Super quick and easy so you can make lots of them in one sitting, or whip one up quick if you're in a hurry!
Just write your message on the journal lines! So fabulous!
Michelle has also created a tag to attach to the top of a gift...
Such great ideas! This stamp set would be easy to stamp up a heap of circles ahead of time and keep them on hand for when you need a quick card. Great for using up cardstock scraps too, just stamp and punch them out. My kids love stamping these and punching them out too.
Hope that's given you a few ideas on how these Simply Circles stamps can be used!!
