New Peg Stamp Sets and a Perfect Layering Circle Card

To see the brand new sets of stamps from Rubber Stamp Tapestry, go to http://pegstamps.com/   Lindsay, the frugalcrafter, designed all of the new red rubber sets they are offering. I love all of the sets and hope you do too.
I really love the Perfect Layering Circles for creating fun backgrounds. These are the stamps I have been talking about on my blog.  I had approached Rebecca, the owner of Rubber Stamp Tapestry, about making a circle that I could stamp inside, and she made a whole set of them and even let me name them.  I used them with the Sparkle and Shine set of peg stamps. I used Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry, Candied Apple and Spiced Marmalade, as well as Color Box Cat’s Eyes in mint.
When using the perfect layering circles, you need to use the same size stamp that you’ll be stamping inside the circle. I used floral patterns to stamp inside mine from the Sparkle & Shine set. I used microbrushes to fix a spot that didn’t stamp well. You can buy them where you find make up supplies…I found mine at Aliexpress for under $2 for 100 of them. I dried my circles after they were stamped, then used dye inks from Stampin’ Up in Tangelo Twist, Melon Mambo and Cherry Cobbler to stamp the flowers inside the circles I had already stamped. I decided to add more images around my circles, so went with another Distress Oxide in Wilted Violet to stamp the smallest flower in the set, then used Loop Double Swirl with Peacock Feathers in Distress Oxides to stamp around the images, then finally used the sun stamp from Sweet Song of Sprint with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxides to stamp around the images. I liked the idea of raising some of the circles, so used my Picked Raspberry and smashed it into white cardstock and then dried it. I used Rose Red Stampin’ Up dye ink and stamped five of the larger flowers like we had stamped on the card. I used a Rose Red marker and scribbled it onto a plastic lid (from the peg stamp sets) and wet the ink then colored the flowers I had stamped. I punched them out with a 1″ circle punch, then re-stamped the flowers over the marker, so the outline of the stamp was brighter.  I put them on foam tape squares and added them to the background we had created. I used a variety of jewels to attach to the centers of the flowers. I used more of the Picked Raspberry paper to stamp a sentiment on with white pigment ink, then used white embossing powder and heat set the sentiment. I cut the sentiment into a banner and taped it to the front of the card. I used an 11″ x 4 1/4″ wide card base, scored at 5 1/2″ in pink glitter paper, and then used an ATG to attach the card base I’d made. I used the flowers to stamp the back of the envelope.
