Tips and Tricks For Using Turnabout Stamps + 4 Card Ideas

By | 07/19/2019

I fell in love with my first Concord & 9th stamp set and I’ve been hooked ever since.  Now they have invented the Turnabout stamps and I just love them.

I love how versatile they are and I wanted to share that with  you today.  I created 4 cards from the Butterfly Love Turnabout Stamp and Dies and the Lots to Say stamp set and the Little Thoughts Dies.

I had to stop myself at 4 cards!

In my opinion, this first card is used exactly the way they were designed to use.  I turned this 4 times and stamped in 4 different Catherine Pooler Ink colors and WOW!C9 Turnabout tips and tricks

How fabulous is this?  It’s just so colorful and it looks so complicated.  The turnabout stamp made this so easy.

I decide to do 4 turns but with one set of colors in different shades.  I used the Sea Shore ink set from Altenew.

I decided to create a card with no turns and I wanted to add something extra using some of the additional stamps in the set and the coordinating die.  This is my favorite of the 4 cards.

That little strip of MFT patterned paper really helps the lighter colors pop.  I also did a quick coloring technique to create the large butterfly in just a minute using a dauber.  You can see the details on the video below.

I did the next card in the same way but spritzed it with water to give it a bit of a watercolor look.  I also added translucent glitter embossing powder over the top so the colors would show through but it would sparkle.
