August 1, 2018 Designer Choice

This week starts August already - where has the summer gone?? Over at
The House that Stamps Built our designer this month is Joy and she has chosen for us to make a card using circles. 

I love Teddy Bears and this one is 114-I Sebastian,  the sentiment  1113-D
Birthday is a "must" for every stamper. 
I had this circle paper in my stash so I grabbed a couple of balloon dies to die cut the balloons, stamping Happy Birthday on the red one.  Colored the bear with copic markers,fussy cut him out and popped him up on of the the die cut circles I cut.  Balloons have to have strings so they don't fly away so I made some strings out of bakers twine in coordinating colors and put them in his hand.  Covered the knot with an enamel dot.
Sweet Carter (great grandson) will be having his 3rd birthday in just a few weeks so this one is earmarked for his birthday. 

 Now it is your turn to make a card using the challenge of  use a circle on your card.    as you can see there are a lot of possibilities for this challenge.  You have a full month to enter our challenge to win.  You do not have to use Repeat Impressions stamps but if you do you will be entered twice for the drawing of a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions. 

If you look on my right side bar I also have a discounted coupon for you to use when you go shopping at Repeat Impressions.
Now why not take a look at our DT Rock Stars for inspiration and to get you started.

This is too cute Shirley, great take on the challenge! I think you win the award for the most circles on a card, very clever!

I think your grandson will like his teddy bear card with its primary colors. It's so much fun to make cards for kids his age, isn't it? It gets a little harder as they get older.
