Gecko Galz August Inspirations

All month long the Gecko Galz DT brings fabulous inspiration to the GG Challenge Blog using the new products for the month from Gecko Galz.  In addition, we each are offering a freebie stamp on each of the featured DT member's personal Blog.  Today is my day.  Our current Customer Challenge is Life Is a Circus so besides my Challenge inspiration that you can find HERE, I've made a card using stamps from the Circus Time Digital Stamp set and the August  Icons (the tickets) from the August Curiosity Shop Club Kit.  The words were added to the tickets digitally.  I've arranged the stamps in my Printmaster Platinum program and colored them with Copics. They are matted on two different papers (layered digitally) from the Color Me Ombre Digital Paper Pack.  the tickets were fussy cut and added after assembling.

Inside also features stamps from the Circus Time set.  I've taken each element from the Life is a Circus Stamp and digitally changed the colors, printed it and cut it with my Spellbinders Scalloped Rectangles.  I've also added a digital sentiment to the elephant's banner.

I'm entering this card in the Simon Says Monday Ticket Please Challenge.

I'm adding this to the Digitally Sweet August Celebrations challenge.

Thanks for hanging in there.  Here's your Freebie stamp from Gecko Galz.

And I've done a little digital project with it. 

Initially I thought the gal was leaning on a clock was going to make a belated birthday card.  Then realized it was a scale.  Eiyiyi!  Instead, I decided to make a cover for a grocery list pad by layering the stamp, digital sentiment and rectangles with digital paper from the Graphicals Digital Paper Pack.  I added a card stock loop to hold the pen to the back and there ya go.
