To start off the Pretties Peeks, the design team are showcasing the Basketball Boy stamp set that is being released.

I love making shaped cards and as I had just received my grand nestabilities circle dies I decided to create a basketball shaped cards. I have made these before but until now they had to be small! So that I could emboss the orange portion of my ball I drew lines on the circle to represent the lines of a basketball and then cut around them and attached it to my card after I had embossed them with the cuttlebug tiny bubbles embossing folder.


For the inside of my card I stamped the basketball which is included in the stamp set three times, I cut these out and attached to the inside circle. I also added a sentiment.
