Spiral Spins

Spiral Spins is another Stamp Set that is in the Occasions Catalog, but I don't see in my new Annual Catalog which goes live to everyone June 2nd.  While I can't say for sure if it will be retired, it doesn't look like you will be able to order it, at least for awhile, unless you do so before June 1st.  I really think it is a fun stamp set which offers a lot of different potential for cute designs. 

My card base is Coastal Cabana Card Stock that I layered with a piece of So Saffron Card Stock and Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper.  I love the colors in this paper.  I think it is great for spring and summer cards.   I then stamped my Spirals using ink that coordinated with my Designer Paper, cut the circles out with my 1 3/4" Circle and 1/2" Circle Punches.  The smaller spirals were placed onto the larger spirals using dimensionals, and placed onto a different color spiral for more contrast. These Spirals also coordinate with the Circle Collection Framelits Dies. 

I also added some retired Tangerine Tango ribbon behind the spirals, and stamped my Happy Birthday with Coastal Cabana Ink.  The sentiment was cut out with a Banners Framelits Dies.  I also cut out two additional banners using Baked Brown Sugar and Tangerine Tango ink for a bit more color and dimension behind my sentiment.
