On the CASE: Spirograph Hello
On the CASE: Spirograph Hello
Anyone here remember (and miss) their spirograph?
It was seriously one of my favorite toys growing up. This new, Concord & 9th exclusive turnabout set is a total throwback with lots and lots of possibilities! And what better way to get a feel for a new set than by CASEing a project? I decided on the floral looking design since these dreary winter days could really use a pop of color!
This was a fun design to put together! But, be prepared to practice some patience as there’s lots of fussy cutting! Let’s take a look at the results:

On the CASE Notes
(your step-by-step guide)
- Score the card base at 4 1/4″.
- Pick out ink colors. The colors I used are pictured below, but any combination will work!
- Align the stamp using the included stamp positioner. Since we only need the flower, there’s no need for the 6×6 template. Just use the 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ template and the same size cardstock.
- Stamp the light color, rotate the cardstock 90-degrees, then stamp the dark color. Repeat the rotation and stamp in light, then rotate and dark.
- Stamp the heart images – one each in the darker shades.
- Fussy cut the flowers and hearts.
- Adhere the flowers directly to the card base, then trim the excess around the edges.
- Stamp the sentiment in Unicorn White pigment ink. Then, heat emboss with white superfine embossing powder.
- Add foam pop-ups to the back of the snipped out sentiment, then some circles of silver metallic thread.
- Adhere the finished sentiment to the card and add a few silver sequins.
How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?
Difficulty Level: 2 out of 5 – This is a super fun card to create – and there’s so many possibilities with color variations, and sentiment swaps. It could easily be a go-to staple in your card design file. Of course, I’m new to Turnabouts, so I still need a minute to review the how-to before I get started. Once that’s done, the magic happens!
This stamp set was originally a monthly incentive stamp, but due to its popularity, it’s available for purchase! Get yours today and spin away!!
