This is a super fun collection!!!
I have lots of projects to share...it's gonna be a long post...

Since I moved recently, I decided to buy a cake and cupcakes to celebrate the crazy move with my family...so, I made a cake topper and cupcake picks.

First, the Merry-Go-Round Cake Topper:


I stamped the tent (Big Top Borders & Backgrounds stamp set) on pink cardstock, trim it and colored some details with gel pens. 
I stamped the animals (Big Top Collection stamp set) on white cardstock and trimmed it in a way that I could attach the tent and base. I colored the images with Copic markers and gel pens.
I stamped the border (Big Top Art Nouveau stamp set) on patterned paper and used a silver gel pen on the stars.


The Striped Washi Tape came in handy, since I didn't know where my tape was...



 Then, I made cupcake picks...


Simply fussy cut the animals from the patterned paper:



I ended up taking pictures of the picks using the cake...my 3 year-old son insisted on carrying the cupcakes in...and of course, he dropped the box (as you can see below)! =)



Now, if you like to stamp and make cards...the first 2 cards are easy to create using the Big Top Collection stamp set, patterned papers and Big Top Adhesive Pearl Stickers...


...plus Big Top Fibers...


Here's another card using Big Top Art Nouveau stamp setpatterned paper, Big Top FibersBig Top Embellishment Cutaparts and Striped Washi Tape...



Challenges:

For all cards:
I splattered some inks with a paintbrush or painted stamped images using All-Purpose Ink (Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts) in Poppy Red and Green Apple.
I inked the edges of the patterned papers and stamped images with brown pigment ink.


And if you're not into the circus theme...you can still use the papers for other projects...like this scrapbook page:


I don't really take selfies, but these were for a hair cut from a couple of years ago...
