[2011.06.30] I'd like to enter this card into The Stamp It! Cards Week Challenge. Go check out the challenge description :)
Were you blown away by the preview of Lovely Birds yesterday? It is a very sweet set and I can't believe what the other girls have created. So blown away! Well, our four day previews for The Craft's Meow July Release continues today with one of my favorite sets! Today we are highlighting a Nina B Designs stamps set called Life is a Carnival (Oh, this is so true!). So hop on in, and we'll take you on a ride...
This stamp set has three huge gorgeous rides, a few fun fair items that any kid or adult enjoys and some awesome sentiments to fit any celebratory or fun occasion. I think this unique stamp set will be one of my favorite go-to-stamps.

I decided to highlight this Carnival stamp set by creating my own background with the ticket stamp and some Antique Linen ink. I fell in love with the carousel and wanted it to stand out. Two steps later, the carousel was heat embossed and cut out. Does it not look divine?
I also had some yummy Graphic 45 Curtain Call in my stash, purchased a while back from The Craft's Meow Store *grin* I used Maya Road Mini Tickets to create a nice visual line to anchor my carousel at an angle, and pulled out the Curtain Call borders to stamp on my sentiment. I love the little details in this sentiment...can you see the little rivets around the center height of the fonts?
