Did you ever try cutting around a circle-shaped stamp yourself with just scissors? It’s not always so easy. For today’s project, I’m using an older stamp set from Basic Grey with some really nice circle-shaped stamps. To help me cut them out, I’ll be using a fun tool from We R Memory Keepers called the Circle Spin & Trim.
I started out by stamping some circles from the Basic Grey Prism-Spending Time with You and the Shine Bright stamp sets. I used Distress Oxide inks in Ripe Persimmon, Peacock Feathers, and Mermaid Lagoon and clear heat embossed the images onto a piece of 8.5 x 11” card stock.
To trim out the circles, I chose the size on the tool I needed and popped in the cutting blade on that circle. I then placed the card stock under the window with the stamped image under the chosen circle. I made sure that the “teeth” on the bottom of the tool punched into the paper to secure it.
Using the little “crank”, I just spun the tool in a circle to make my cuts. I continued to do this with the other circles I stamped.
I arranged my variety of circles along with some of the diamonds onto a white card panel with a sentiment from Ranger’s Letter It Birthday underneath. Popping them up with foam tape kind of gives the look of balloons or confetti. I attached the panel with foam tape to a plain white note card to create a fun, birthday or congratulatory card.
The Circle Spin & Trim tool is super handy. I don’t always have just that right size of circle die so I know I can always pull this out in a pinch. Thanks so much for joining me today!
