Concord & 9th -- The Crafty Turnabout Bundle -- For all your crafty friend cards!
Hey everyone! Welcome to Del & Artie’s home online. Today I feature cards made using the Crafty Turnabout Bundle from Concord & 9th. I have enjoyed guest designing for one of my FAVORITE stamp companies the last four weeks. Let’s dive into this week’s offerings.
Stamp of Approval
First, up we have a shaker card. For the background, I stamped the turnabout four times in Brutus Monroe embossing ink and heat embossed it with Alabaster embossing powder. Then I blended some Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Inks on top. I die cut the stamp and tiny heart images out of pink cardstock. Then I inked up the heart and bottom of the stamp with Wilted Violet DIstress Oxide Ink. I stamped the sentiment—You have my stamp of approval—onto some cardstock with embossing ink and heat embossed it with Alabaster Embossing Powder from Brutus Monroe. Then I inked up the square with some Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink and attached them both along the bottom and left of the window.
I added a piece of acetate behind the window using some Brutus Monroe All-purpose Crafting Glue and popped up that panel on some foam tape. I dusted the acetate with some corn starch to prevent the shaker pieces from clinging to it once inside the card. I poured some bling into the center of an A2 card base made from Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. I adhered the foam taped backed panel over the mound of bling. As a final touch, I stamped the “stamp” sentiment all over the front of the panel with Brutus Monroe Clear Embossing Ink.
You Color My Stamp
For the next card, I stamped the turnabout four times onto a panel using Stampin’ Up’s Eggplant Envy, Versafine Black Onyx ink, and Hickory Smoke and Mustard Seed Distress Oxide inks. I die cut a smaller center panel using the stamp die and stamped a sentiment on it. For this sentiment, I had to do some stamp surgery. I cut the “have” out of the “You have my” sentiment. Then I stamped the words YOU and MY around the world COLOR. I stamped the “STAMP” image below it. There’s a little CONFETTI stamp in the bundle that I used to stamp in some fun dots on this little rectangle panel in Mustard Seed DIstress Oxide Ink.
For the violet ribbon panel, I inked up a piece of white scrap cardstock with the Eggplant Envy ink. I adhered the center stamp panel onto the top of the ribbon panel and popped it all onto an A2 sized card base of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock with some foam tape to finish it off.
Cut Out To Be Friends
For my last card, I stamped the turnabout stamp twice with some Tangerine and Rich Cocoa Memento Inks. Using the stamp die, I cut out three different colors of cardstock: white, brown and orange. I layered them together and stamped the front of the white one with the sentiment: We were cut out to be friends. The CUT OUT stamp is actually two stamps you can combine together using different colors (so fun). I also stamped the SEW stitched stamp for interest. Using the scissors dies, I cut out a pair of scissors using brown and yellow cardstock. I made a center ribbon stacking orange and brown cardstock together. I adhered the scissors to the center panel, and that to the center ribbon with foam tape. Then I glued it all on top of the turnabout panel. Finally, I glued it all onto an A2 sized card base made using Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock.
