.... Hello! I'm here with my Seven Hills Craft blog. Grab a coffee (or tea if you prefer) and join me. I've got six cards to share with you today. The main image on them all is a new Turnabout stamp from Concord & 9th - Love Lines - it's part of the Valentine release, but it's so much more versatile. The stamp consists of an double turnabout - so you can make a complete background, an outer frame, and an inner pattern. Here's my first card:
Stamps: Concord & 9th - Love Lines Turnabout; The Greetery - Sentiment Suite - Thinking of You
Inks: Gina K - Soft Stone, Stormy Sky, Slate, Black Onyx; Versafine Clair - Nocturne
Dies: C&9 - Just Saying
Accessories: White & Black Card; Vellum; C&9 - All-in-One Turnabout Jig
I'm submitting this card to Love to Craft Challenge Blog - LTCCB#72 where it's always 'anything goes'.
If you've not used a Turnabout stamp, Concord & 9th have a super video on their blog to show you how. I used both parts of the turnabout image to create a complete background in greys and black. I layered the piece onto a black mat and added it to a 5¾" white square note card. I finished the front by adding a die cut greeting. The die cuts both shadow and words, I did the shadow in vellum and the words in black card. Inside the card, I cut a mat layer of black card and on the white panel I stamped a sympathy greeting along with a simple grey flower.
Next is a card I've made for my son, Ben:
Stamps: Concord & 9th - Love Lines Turnabout, Friendship Garden
Inks: Gina K - Wild Dandelion, Key Lime, Turquoise Sea, Blue Denim; Versafine Clair - Nocturne
Dies: C&9 - Just Saying, Double Stripe Card Front
Accessories: White & Black Card; SU Card - Granny Apple Green; C&9 - All-in-One Turnabout Jig
I'm submitting this to Never-Before-Used-Schtuff - NBUS#47 - Love Lines is brand new, and this is the first time I've used the Just Saying dies.
I made this a bright card using blue, teal, green, and yellow. I added extra interest to the background using the double stripe die which cuts stiched lines into the background. I adhered the panel to the front of an A2 (US size) green card. I added a die cut greeting - the shadow cut from black card and the words in green to match the note card. I cut a piece of white card for the inside and simply stamped a greeting and branch image in the bottom corner. I edged the panel with a blue marker and adhered the panel to the note card.
Next is a Valentine's card - but not in pinks/red - this is more masculine:
Stamps: Concord & 9th - Love Lines Turnabout, Just the Ticket, Perfect Match
Inks: Gina K - Ocean Mist, Blue Lagoon, Blue Denim, Stormy Sky; Versafine Clair - Nocturne
Dies: Gina K - Master Layouts 2
Accessories: White & Black Card; SU Card - Basic Grey; C&9 - All-in-One Turnabout Jig
I'm submitting this card to Global Design Project - GDP#379 where the theme is 'love'.
I used a stitch-edged die to cut out the white panel, added a greeting in dark blue at the bottom and then layered it onto a black mat. I adhered the whole piece to the front of an A2 grey note card. Inside, I cut a mat layer of black card. On the white panel I stamped a dotty heart and added some fun sentiments.
Next, is a more feminine version of the central pattern and I've made this for my mum:
Stamps: Concord & 9th - Love Lines Turnabout, Hello Wishes
Inks: Gina K - Innocent Pink, Dusty Rose, Lovely Lavender, Medium Lilac; Versafine Clair - Nocturne
Dies: C&9 - Simply You
Accessories: White & Black Card; SU Card - Highland Heather; C&9 - All-in-One Turnabout Jig
I'm submitting this card to Inkspirational - INK#282 where they have a moodboard where the theme is 'love/Valentine, but with other options too'. I've focused on the love theme.
I used a wide scallop stitched-edge die to cut out this panel - it's so pretty. I adhered the panel to the front of a lilac A2 (US size) note card. I finished the front by adding a die cut greeting. On the white panel inside the card, I stamped a simple greeting and flowers.
I decided to make a card for my daughter, Kat, too - this time I used the outer frame of the Turnabout stamp:
Stamps: Concord & 9th - Love Lines Turnabout, Hello Wishes, Friendship Garden
Inks: Gina K - Wild Dandelion, Sweet Mango, Passionate Pink, Coral Reef; Versafine Clair - Nocturne
Dies: Gina K - Master Layouts 1
Accessories: White & Black Card; SU Card - Melon Mambo; C&9 - All-in-One Turnabout Jig
Using the outer part of the Turnabout stamp give a central open space, perfect for a large greeting. I stamped this lovely message in bright pink ink. I cut the panel with a die and layered it onto a black mat. I added the whole piece to the front of a bright pink A2 note card. On the white panel inside, I stamped a sentiment and flower - I left a big space for my own message.
My final card is a Christmas card:
Stamps: Concord & 9th - Love Lines Turnabout, Festive Phrases, Fa La La Fringe Tree
Inks: Gina K - Lipstick, Jelly Bean Green, Lucky Clover, Key Lime; Versafine Clair - Nocturne
Accessories: White Card; SU Card - Poppy Parade; C&9 - All-in-One Turnabout Jig
I'm submitting this one to The Holly & Ivy Christmas Challenge - H&ICC#132 where the theme is always 'anything Christmas goes'. So happy to join in with this challenge again.
I stamped a bold black Christmas greeting in the opening, layered the panel onto bright red card and added it to the front of a 5¾ white square note card. Inside, I cut a mat layer of red card and on the white panel stamped a simple bold greeting and red stars.
I had such fun making all these card. They show just how versatile Turnabout stamps are - and they come together so quickly. Once set up in my MISTI, I like to stamp multiple backgrounds and keep them in my stash for future use.
That's all from me today. Thanks for sticking with me. See you again soon.
You have brilliantly shown just how versatile the Turnabout stamps are, Deborah! They should be paying you as a designer because you are a pro with them! I can't pick a favorite and I love all the insides, too. Thank you for inspiring everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell
That Turnaround Stamp is so versatile - I love the designs you've created with it Deborah!
This is a pretty turnabout stamp and I love all the different ways you used it and the colour combos. I would never have thought to use it for the masculine cards - but it really works so well.
What clever and beautiful selection of card Deborah. Love the different colours of the same stamp.
It sure looks like you enjoyed using this stamp. I like how different they all turned out. My favorite is the purple as I love the color and I love the layout you chose for everything. Thanks for sharing your card with us at INKspirational!
