Hi everyone! I am wrapping up a wonderful trip to Amsterdam, but I wanted to pop in and share with you the cards I made using the Star Turnabout bundle from Concord & 9th. These items are available now in the Concord & 9th store.
This turnabout features an inner and outer stamp and works in the same ingenious way that their other turnabout stamps do. Use them separately or together, with or without the coordinating die – there is a lot of possibility with this set! I think this might be my favorite turnabout yet. I am highlighting just a few ways this set can be used.
For each card, I used the inner stamp. I love the way it produces a tidy little cluster of stars. Using the jig I created for the turnabout series (more info on the C9 site), I stamped the inner star stamp four times using a gradient of pink-red inks. Then I stamped sentiments from the Rainbow Wishes set in Versafine black onyx.
Then I die cut the “bright” sentiment, using the Rainbow Wishes coordinating dies, from some coordinating cardstock, and also from the stamped panel. Then I layered them and adhered them to the panel. I added some craft foam to the panel and adhered it to my A2 top-folding card base. Super quick and easy.
Rainbow wishes is just one of the many sets that the Star Turnabout goes well with.
For my next card, I decided to “glam”, so I grabbed black cardstock and gold embossing powder.
First, I stamped the outline sentiments from Shine On (featured last week). I heat embossed with gold powder, and then masked them before moving on to the turnabout. Once again, I used the inner stamp, but this time I only stamped it two times (or was it three? I can’t remember) with Versamark ink and then heat embossed it. I wrapped the panel with black and gold string and then layered it with craft foam on top of gold glitter paper and again onto kraft cardstock. I then adhered the whole thing to my card base.
For my last card, I stamped the inner stamp four times with Versamark and heat embossed the image with white powder. Then I applied a watercolor wash in several layers, drying in between each.
Once it was completely dry, I used the coordinating die only once (it turns too!). I created a sentiment strip with a sentiment from Shine On and added some embroidery floss. I adhered this panel to a trimmed down piece of coordinating card stock and then onto my card base.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please go see the beautiful cards Jen and Julia created for this week’s Feature Friday!
