Circus Train

| Blog, Circus Train, Eureka Stamps, Promarkers

Today I would like to share a card with you made from several Digi Stamps from Eureka Stamps.  I had such fun with these stamps and they have so many possibilities!

The card is 6″ x 12″ as it needed to be big enough to fit the whole train onto it!  I have coloured the images using Promarkers and then cut around each image.  To join the carriages together I have used a ribbon punch on Black Cardstock to look like a chain.  The balloons are cut from an old Quickutz die that I have as is the grass.

Here is a list of the stamps I have used:

Remember when sizing these Digi Stamps that the animals need to fit in the Train Car, so make them smaller than the engine and the carriage!

  6. Adhere to spotty paper and attach to card.
  7. Print and cut the “Life’s A Beach” sentiment and layer it onto the shell paper and attach to card.
