First Turnabout Card

Finally broke out my new turnabout tool kit and stamp from Concord & 9th and did some playing. Didn’t like my first try but this second one was much better so went with it. These turnabout stamps are addictive and now I’m keen to buy a few more stamps.

Better than Alright

I used various Distress Oxides here. I stamped the sentiment square and using dimensionals added it to the center. As well I die cut some leaves and added them tucked below the sentiment square. A few matching gems was all that was needed to make this card pop. I added the main panel with a foam pop up to a matching background piece and then adhered to card base.

  1. Thanks so much Judy. Check out Concord & 9th and see the stamps and template I’m talking about. Jan also has turnabout cards on her blog that you can see as well. I think Jen McGuire shows how to use them as does the lady at this blog – In her case she is using a marbled background turnabout. I like them as much as I like the wreath builder from GKD


  2. This is a great card! I have 2 of their turnabout stamp sets, but haven’t gotten around to making my jig, yet. You have encouraged me to get it done. I really like the way you did your sentiment, too.

    1. They now have their own permanent jig available which is what I got in the kit I purchased. So easy and also easy to clean after use. And the sentiment was a stamp in the kit along with the square stamp so you can do borders in any colour. My kit included dies and I found it great value.


  3. Yes I’m hooked and will be looking at buying some more stamps when I have the energy to look. My local store may have some but I’m not up to going out there yet. Maybe next week. It is an easy way to get some quite interesting cards.


  4. Your card turned out beautifully, Johanna. I have a few turnabout stamps and they are so easy to work with and I feel much easier to use than the wreath builder. I have my eye on the birthday turnabout that Jan shared.

  5. Thanks Gayle – I agree I think they are easier than the wreath builder as all one needs to do is change colours as you turn. The look can be whatever you want. I’m definitely going to get more of them. I’ve just seen a marble background one and would very much like to buy this.
