Baby Argyle

Good morning!  Here is a card I shared from the release party, I love the squares on a 45 degree angle as diamonds and how you can stamp up a quick argyle with two square images on the block at once.  This design uses three different squares from the Lots of Letters set.
Stack two bold square images from Lots of Letters on your grid line block, oriented like diamonds with the points touching.  Stamp in the middle of your  4" x 5 1/4"white mat in Memento Summer Sky.  Now turn your block180 degrees so the other square is on on top, re-ink, and stamp just to the right.  Turn it back over again, re-ink and stamp to the right again. Now you have an alternating patten and two perfectly aligned  rows. Repeat this process on the left side.  Stamp the open square image in Summer Sky on cardstock scraps and trim with scissors or use the matching cut file or a 3/4" square punch.  Stamp baby inside in Teal Zeal and pop up in between rows.  I added these colored metal dots in between each for accents and embossed double lines above and below with a Scor-Bug and Scor-Buddy.  White panel is mounted on Pure Luxury In the Navy and a Turquoise Sea base.

Did you shop 'til you dropped? :) In addition to pounding the pavement for some clothes and gifts, I've been online, of course, and ordered the new Pure Luxury blues, bakers twine and some binder boxesSale specials last through Monday at Gina K Designs.
