  3. Love it! In my childhood world, my Spirograph was second only to my big box of 96 Crayola Crayons. Yes, truly a blast from the past, and you’ve created such a beautiful card with that retro feel!

  4. I loved spirographs growing up and even as an adult I’ve had a few opportunities to play with them again with neices. Still love them! This card is totally reminds me of one of those.

    And your card has given me some ideas on how to use a big doily stamp I have but never use.
    Thanks, Laura!

  6. Love the simplicity of the card…right up my alley. Bet I have a spirograph hidden away in my garage treasures!

  7. Yes I had one of those spirographs when I was younger….broke my heart when the silly pen skipped a loop and I had to start over again! Love that this stamp will make a perfect spiro EVERYTIME:)))

  8. OMG! This does look like it was done by a Spirograph! I used to spend hours playing with ours. I’m sure my mom loved that toy!!! Your card is so clean and

  9. It’s always a joy to come and see what you’ve been creating, Laura! Your gorgeous rainbow spirograph card is stunning … that sprinkling of sequins is perfect! Spirograph was one of my favourite games … I got lost in it … thanks for bringing back that lovely memory! Anita 🙂

  10. I still have my Spirograph, too. Beautiful card. I love watching you do ink blending. You make it look so easy and it’s so much faster than trying to color each area.

  11. What a great way to add a sentiment to a card! It’s unique and helps the sentiment really stand out. Beautiful!

    Thanks for sharing, Laura!

  12. Hi Laura ~ Love your card and the colors. Spirograph is actually on my Christmas Wish List this year and I’m 56!! So much fun and I was thinking it would make great designs for card fronts. Thanks for the inspiration. ~HUGS~

  13. The ink blending is fabulous- I don’t know how you do it. Do I have the wrong paper or perhaps just the wrong patience!!!

  14. I just loved my Spirograph when I was a kid. I have to stop myself from buying one at the store every time I walk past them! Your card is beautiful!!

  15. Love the geometrically designed flower! My Spirograph was my older sister’s that I would sneak into my room when she wasn’t around. Geometrical flowers that look like the old Spirograph designs is a great idea. Wish it had been my idea!

  16. I loved the spirograph growing up & now my kids have a similar version that I can’t help but play with! Your color choices and ink blending are always fantastic!

  17. What a fun stamp set. I loved my spirograph and I now have one in the closet that the grands played with. They were fasinated by it. All of these line images remind me of it. Your card is lovely.

  18. Wow! This totally takes me back to being a kid! I loved the spirograph and am pretty sure I was able to get one from a garage sale whends I was little. Love this stamp set and the beautiful card!

  19. Love this! It takes me back to my spirograph days. I was just thinking I needed to pull it out of the attic because Ellie is at the age she’d really enjoy it I think.

  20. A beautiful card! Yes I had a spyrograph set. Boy would I love to sit with you and have you teach me the trick and technique for ink blending. I struggle with that one. Once in awhile it works for me.

  21. I just introduced my 4 year old granddaughter to Spirograph and she is HOOKED! She fell in love instantly and I am now having trouble keeping enough paper in the house for her to use with it! I think I am going to buy stock in a paper company so I at least get a little back for my many future purchase! LOL Love this pretty card!!
    We have a brand new Spirograph set and also one of the original sets that is in like new condition that my aunt has had since she was a kid; Gotta love hoarding relatives because you can find some pretty awesome things when shopping in their closets and under the beds!! Off to explore! TFS!

  22. I totally had one of those too!!!

    Love this card and I always look forward to your videos! I especially loved how you chopped it in 1/2 and used the back card stock behind it! At first I was like “noooo” but what great interest it created! Love it! Your videos are such a bright spot in my day – and so inspiring!
