{Paper Smooches} Life is a Circus... Enjoy + Video!

This is my second post of the day.
If you're looking for my {Mama Elephant} Designer Series: Toy Shop post, please scroll down or CLICK HERE.


Kim is sharing this card on the Paper Smooches Blog today. There's an extra week this month so you'll get four days worth of design team projects before the November stamps and dies are released! Both the monthly design team blog hop and the release party on the Splitcoast Forum will take place this Thursday, on Halloween, starting at 9:00 a.m. EST and from 10:00 p.m. to midnight EST, respectively. As always, there will be tons of fun, games, inspiration and prizes to be won. You don't want to miss it!


Today's card features the Enjoy the Show stamp set and coordinating Circus Icons dies. I also used the Shadows stamp set to ground the clown. Here's the video:



For the card base, I used this circus tent card cut file from Silhouette America. The clown was just calling for his own circus tent and he looks so good in it, don't you think? I did have to make a second tent for my son to craft with. ;) This set is so much fun for kids' projects and birthdays. Pair it up with another new release, as I'll demonstrate in November, and its versatility increases tenfold.


The Enjoy the Show stamp set and coordinating Circus Icons dies will be available for purchase at 12:00 a.m. EST on Friday, November 1st.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Emily - this is too cute!! I have a request to ask of you if possible. I do not own a Silhouette machine. I was wondering if I could have you do some of these cut files for me - I will gladly pay you for them. Please email me at kikiwebster30@gmail.com if you don't mind doing this. Thank you! I love following you and your talent.

Ha I saw this on PS and loved it...that clown is very cute and not at all scary. I watched "It" movie years ago and then started to hate clowns. This stamp set may have changed my mind. Ha!

Your card is so totally cool, Emily! I love the tent and also especially the funny clown appearing when you open it. Great idea to use this shape!! Fun!
Hugs, Wendy
