New Alota Stamps Ovals and Circles - You can Die Cut them!

Have you seen the new stamps from Alota Rubber Stamps? These are so practical!

These are the "Pretty Ovals Essentials" - and the sentiments fit perfectly inside them!

And these are "Pretty Circles Essentials", don't you just love those love birds that can sit in any of the circles?

These are made to cut with - yes your Spellbinders Nestibilities!!! They can also be used with other circles and oval - I see so many possibilites, use the sentiments, or put an image in them, really adds so much!

Well my first card with these new stamps I decided to use the Daisy Circle, a perfect match with one the little girls from the "KIDS" set I just love these little ones, they are so cute. And this one holding the basket of daisy's is just a great match with the circle of flowers.
I started with a yellow card stock base, layered white card stock, then a piece of K&Company's embossed paper. Love the lattice look of this paper. I ran a scrap of yellow through my Cuttlebug with a flower embossing folder, and ran my green ink over it to high light the flowers.
I stamped the circle flowers and colored them with my Copics, and Spica Glitter pens, then used the "Get Well Soon" sentiment from the collection. Stamped my "Kid" and colored her with Copics and Spica Glitter pens as well. I cut her out with my Fiskar's finger tip knife, isn't it cut how her eyes are looking up at the circle of flowers?
These stamps are going to be moving fast I bet! Again - really practical sets. Hey what ever it takes to make it ok to order more right?
Alrighty now... I gotta get in there and do my Wii - I missed all of last week. I bet that white box is going to yell at me! If you haven't seen it before, it really does shame you if you miss. But it won't let me explain how bad my week was - guess I'll just have to take it as I haven't figured out how to fast forward ahead of that part. LOL!
Hope you have a wonderful Monday -
HUGS and-
