Circle Card

Hello Everyone.
Our delightful hostess this week at Our Creative Corner is Meihsia Liu -  
and the Challenge is-Fall in the Circle.

Please create a CIRCLE card or project with a FALL theme - colours or objects. 

 I have used the Hero Arts Poppy Stamp.
Stamped image twice, first on the circle die-cut using distress inks,
(you may notice a bit of a kissing effect on the bg from the  Hero Arts envelope stamp).  
The second one I stamped on some scrap card in Black Archival, and colouring the flowers up with copics.
Next, I fussy-cut the heads in a few pieces, popping up some and layering down others.
I added a Sunflower sticker in the left hand corner... and that is it all done!
  Here is a close-up look on how I popped up the petals to create dimension.


If you would like to participate in this Challenge and have the chance to be on Top Talent Thursday...... please feel free to do so, we would love to have you on board. 
For more inspiration pop over to the OCC  Blog and say hello to my teamies.

Have a great weekend

Hi Sue. Love your card and all that fussy cutting! Wow! The colours in this card really caught my eye when I first saw it - it really stood out and reminded me of waterlilies in a pond

Lisa M said...

Did I read that correctly that you've used the kissing technique again? That looks terrific Onion and your embossing technique on te beautifully Autumn colored flowers really brings out a tactile joy to my eyes!
A gorgeous circle card. :)

Sue, I continue to be awestruck by your creativity! and this week, is no exception. You always create such beautiful cards. And you use the techniques we generally forget. but looking at your cards, revive those creative juices, and give me the urge to hide out in my craft room, and do some 'kissing'. {smile}
Love the creative depth and attention to detail.
have a great week. hugs, sharon w.
