Fun with Circle Scribbles

Here are some cards I made using another new Papertrey set, Circle Scribbles. My daughter told me the first one doesn't really feel like an Ardyth card, but I thought it was riotous and fun! I overlapped the circles using various colours of ink, added shadowed letters and a doodly-feeling Memory Box Happy.


The second one is much more soothing and elegant. Embossed in gold pearl, it has a slight shimmer. I love how the spindly Avery Elle sentiment has a similar feel to the scribbled circle.

Love the circle scribbles and your cards. The first is jazzy and fun. The second graceful and refined. The contrast between the two is delightful.

Beautiful cards, Ardyth! Love the colorful and somewhat quirky style of the first one and the very elegant second one. Your cards are always amazing to me.

Birthdays are supposed to be fun and unexpected. You captured that in the first card totally. The second card is downright elegant. Well done Ardyth!

I LOVE the fun silliness of the first card. Colors are so happy feeling, and that is perfect for a birthday. Your second card is sublime sophistication. Love it too.

I'm more of the first card kind of girl but the second one? Totally yummy. That is the perfect font to go with that gold scribble.

Mmm, the first has Ardyth-esque tendencies, Ardyth ... the rainbow of colour, the wonderful white space, a hint of a black edge and of course glitter ... love it, it's such fun! The second ... (happy sighing) it's simply spectacular ... gold and white gorgeousness! Anita :)

Oh, these are both special. I have that set and it has not seen ink yet...so I am inspired. I love, love the second card!

Susanne Vargas said...

That set is on my wish list and I love that you made two very different but equally stunning cards with it!

You reign supreme when it comes to visualizing and showcasing the versatility of a single stamp! From colorful fun scribbles to elegant funkiness...and both totally Ardyth!

Fabulous! I love the colourful scribble background and the higgledy piggeldy letters, and then how you've used the same stamp to make something so fine and elegant!

Wonderful cards! Love how your split your circle scribble panel...that's genius.

I love them both, and think that they are totally 'you' Either your daughter is a tough critic (and what daughter isn't?) or she knows you too well.

The first one is definitely riotous - a galloping rainbow of tumbleweeds that are bowling over those sparkly letters! And I love the peaceful feel of the second one.

Well...I love them both and your daughter is so sweet, mine does the same thing when I show her a card. Both are simply fabulous.
