Spiros Galore

First, I wanted to say thank you to all that reached out to wish me a Happy Birthday yesterday, I really appreciate all the uplifting messages!

I have some fun cards to share with you today.  Do you remember when you were younger and having so much fun drawing spirographs on paper?  I remember using up a lot of trees doing this, they were so much fun to create different patterns.

The {Stamps}of Life released a very cool set, spiros2stamp this month.  I loved playing with this set and tried to experiment on my first card using some vellum and bright colors.  I stamped my image on vellum and flipped it over, coloring it with some bright copic markers and the cutting it out and adhering it onto white cardstock.  I finished it off by stamping the borders4me dots around the edges of the card.  Love how this one turned out!

Card details:
Stamps: spiros2stamp from The {Stamps}of Life
Cardstock: A Blanc Check, Orange You Fabulous, vellum
Inks: Perfect Little Black Dress, Dare to be a Diva Red, copic markers
Embellishments: mini rhinestones and rhinestone brad
Here is another one I like a lot, just stamping the spiro and cutting with the circle nestabilities.  I stamped the mini spiro on the design paper and added my sentiment to a ribbon tag.  I tied it close with some black twill ribbon and adorned the center with a red rhinestone.
