Argyle Happy Birthday!

OK back with some more Argyle!  LOVING this set!  I used Dot Spot too and a sentiment from Fly Away!



A pretty cool tip here....if you have the blue Jumbo Marvy, you can fit 4 Happy Birthdays from the Fly Away set perfectly in a circle.  I just punched out the circle, put the circle down first, then the block and then arranged the stamp to fit on a quarter of the circle.  Then stamped it 4 times!  Worked PERFECT!


This is all Spring Moss too!  Love LOVE this color!  I am really going to work on using more than one color in a card!  I seem to think monochromatically!  Maybe the next card I make will have 3 colors in it!  LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!

I can not get my argyle to stamp perfectly across like you did. Very good job n that! I love this color,too. So soft and pretty. I really like the layout on this card. Clean and striking.

That is supercute!

Dana said...

WOW, your argyle looks perfect Laurie! And I love the tip you gave us abotu fitting the sentiment into the circle 4 times...clever and artistic. This card is awesome. Maybe monochromatic is your "thing", don't fix it if it works! lol

Amy said...

Laurie....I have to agree that your argyle is perfect! I could not be that brave to do the argyle in the middle of the card...my luck I would stamp it wrong and not have something to put over it to "fix" it!! :)

I don't think I've ever used Spring Moss and black but I'm going to give it a try! Very striking!

Jennifer K said...

Gorgeous! I like how you left a border around the edge of the card and the argyle just in the middle. Very cool! And I see nothing wrong with monochromatic when it's done well, as you did here!

nina said...

Love your argyle pattern - and the black really sets off the lovely Spring Moss! I love monochromatic...

Jennifer Carter said...

Barb said...

Lovely! I love how you used the Dot Spot image to go in the middle of the circle.

Hi, Laurie!!!
I love your card. I have been loving green for a while now and it's my little boy's favorite color. The argyle background is perfect. The bow is fantastic, too. I thought the Happy Birthday sentiment was a circular stamp. How neat to know you created that look. The green button is perfect! This would be a fantastic masculine card! I have been loving all the eye candy on your blog lately!
Angel Hugs,
Bridgett

This is awesome, Laurie! I just want you to know that I'm ordering Dot Spot because of a few cards you've made with it. It's all your fault....at least that's what I'm telling hubby!! LOL! Have a great day!

Stunning card, Laurie! Spring Moss and black is one of my favorite color combos. Love the argyle set. I may have to case this card!

I love all the little details on this card. I definitely like that color combo. I know I'll be using it soon. Dot Spot with the Fly Away sentiments...genius!
