Hello and good morning! ^__^
I'm Halak and today I'll be showing you some projects with a fantastic stamp set called Roundy Sentiments.
But before that, let me remind you, today's the last day of the month and tomorrow we have the new release launch over at Peek-a-boo Designs!
Super psyched about it! Fabulous set of products releasing tomorrow!
You probably might even get to see a sneak peek or two... but shhh... you didn't hear it from me... :D
So.. here's a look at the stamp set :
I love circle text because it's unconventional and fun!
This stamp set has a great mix of sentiments and patterns so you can build your entire project without the use of additional stamp sets.
Let's check out the projects one by one, shall we?
Starting with this bookmark that I made :
The sentiment is a sticker from my stash.
I used a cool color scheme of blues and greens for it.
Tip : I wanted to embellish the project but wanted it to be functional as a bookmark, so I used flat sequins.
If you use cup sequins, it will ruin the book pages and the sequins could get crushed when the weight of the book is too much.
Hence, while making a project do think about what you want to use it for and embellish it accordingly.
Next up is this birthday card.
A CAS project, I used pastel colors for the patterns and Archival black ink by Ranger for sentiment from the set.
The butterflies and the stamped heart are coated in fine glitter.
And here's an envelope.
I masked the top half of the envelope before stamping to be able to write stuff on it.
Tip : Notice the sentiment on this project. In the stamp set it is quite big + runs continuous and I didn't want it repeating while stamping so I masked it such that the sentiment is stamped without repetition.
If I were making a bigger project like a card or a layout, I would keep the entire sentiment.
So this brings us to an end of this blog post. I hope you enjoyed reading it! Which project is your favorite? I'd love to know!
Thank you so much for stopping by, have a great day! *Hugs*

1) Black Magic Technique With Emboss Resist & Black Ink -
2) Stamped the solid peony with white Pigment ink on Black CS from PABD Peonies Love Stamp.
4) Start coloring using pencil colors only when your white Ink dries completely...i didn't wait for its complete dry so did a mess ;p But no worries you can use black pencil color to cover all silly mistakes ..magicccc ;p

Ready for some new cards and some new inspirations. Well this time its not the usual flowers, or elements swirls or furnishes rather some solid SHAPES.
Yeah, haven't you seen yet this, so right away head over to here and grab yours cause its a must for one Stamper.
Well before we move on, I hope you are having some fun time playing the challenge this time.
So here we go, below is the set I have used to create my cards today.
Isn't that a awesome set, simple but can create magic. So some of my take with this set as goes:
Card 1 : I made a set here, though same design however different combination

It starts with the background. Nope, no fancy pattern papers et al, this project uses 3 distress inks (Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn & Peacock Feathers) along with 1 Archival Ink (black).
Time for stamping!
After this, I added some more elements from the Away We Go stamp set with distress inks. (Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn & Peacock Feathers.)
Then, I distressed the edges, added another sentiment + image from Away We Go stamp set and matted it onto PABD Black Cardstock.
Matted it onto PABD White Card Base and did some more stamping around the edges.
Lastly, added a couple of blue sequins and a tiny blue confetti star in the location stamp at the top.
And there you have it folks, a project that has color and texture without the use of added materials and 3D objects! Very mail-friendly too!
