Today's card features the Concord and 9th turnabout stamp. If you don't know what a turnabout stamp is, it's a unique stamp that allows you to stamp in 4 different colors to create a beautiful background on any card. I recently discovered these stamps in an instructional video by the very talented Jennifer McGuire from Jennifer McGuire Ink that featured the Concord and 9th Lovely Blossoms stamp set. I loved it so much that I ordered it and made this beautiful card.
This stamp set was relatively easy to use and the results were amazing. To make this card to cut a piece of Neenah White Classic Crest 80lb cardstock to 11 x 4.25 and scored it at 5.5 and 2.75. I used my Misti stamping tool and stamped the image using the following inks:
- Hero Arts Shadow Ink - Soft Vanilla
- Hero Arts Shadow Ink - Lime Green (Mid-tone)
- Gina K. Designs - Lucky Clover
- Gina K. Designs - Sea Glass
Once I had the image stamped, I cut out a scalloped circle using MFT Scalloped Circles dies. I cut out the "you are lovely" using my Cricut. I cut out 2 of each in white cardstock, then one of each word in the colors shown in the photographs. I layered them to look thick and have some dimension. I also cut out a white circle to go on top of the blue scalloped circle and glued the words on top with Tombow Aqua mono liquid glue. I punched out a small heart and used Glossy Accents to give it that little, added touch.
I repeated the same circle on the inside and added my sentiment, which is from the MFT Beary Special Birthday stamp set. I added some small pearl stick on accents as the final touch. I am so happy with how lovely this card came out. If you'd like to see the instructional video for this card, click on the link here.
