I just HAD to use my favorite set from this release today...Life Is A Circus!  I just ADORE this set, which was illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink line @ Taylored Expressions!!  It is WAY cute!  As I mentioned on Wednesday, Life Is A Circus is a full sized set on a 5.75" x 8.5" full color sturdy storage panel  that includes 17 stamps.  All Taylored Expressions stamps are made from top-quality deeply etched rubber in a cute shade of pink and come on EZ Mount already trimmed and ready to used with your acrylic blocks.

I had this idea for my card today, and I was so excited that I was able to transfer my idea from my noggin to paper (that hardly ever happens to me!!!).  I stamped this ADORABLE clown THREE times in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock...twice next to each other so their hands almost touch, and then once again on top and between the two so it looks like they are in a clown pyramid!

I colored them all with Copic Markers, and the patterned paper is Little Boy from Echo Park Papers.  I added a border with the FAB Star Border, and used the Seeing Stars Die to create a little star embellie to anchor my sentiment, "Clownin' Around".  I added some Baker's Twine and tons of machine stitching.  I used the Stars Impression Plate for the background...love the texture!

Here are the Taylored Dies I've used on this card:
