Oh, Hello from Concord & 9th

We are having so much fun with the new Turnabout Stamps from Concord & 9th.  If you're not familiar with these stamps, be sure to watch the video at the end of this post.  It will demonstrate how to use these fun background stamps.

Today's card was created using the Oh, Hello Turnabout stamp along with the Say Hello stamp set and Say Hello die set.

We stamped the Oh, Hello Turnabout stamp on to an A2 size piece of white cardstock using Minty Fresh dye ink from Lawn Fawn along with an assortment of grey and black ink.  After stamping the card panel, we temporarily secured the front panel to the front of our A2 card and cut the larger Hello die from the center of the card making sure we cut through both pieces of cardstock.  This created a window for the front of our card.

We closed the card and stamped Hello onto the inside of the card positioning it so that it was centered inside the Hello window.  Removed the front panel that we temporarily secured and placed a piece of acetate between the front of the card and the front panel that was stamped with the Oh, Hello Turnabout stamp.

The thin Hello die was cut from white cardstock and colored with coordinating ink.  It was then secured to the acetate window so it was positioned over the Hello that we stamped inside the card.

If you haven't seen the Turnabout stamps in action, you'll find them HERE.

Tips for setting up and positioning your Turnabout stamps can be found HERE.

Finally, one last video from Jennifer McGuire using the Triangle Turnabout stamp.  You can view that HERE.

Make a Wish from MFT Stamps

We have a quick and easy birthday card to share with you today.  We hope it inspires you to create something fun.

The candle images, flames and sentiment are all from the Make a Wish stamp set from MFT Stamps.  We used various dye inks to stamp the flames, hearts, and candles.  The background was stamped using the Diagonal Stripe background stamp from MFT Stamps and Versa Fine Onyx Black ink.

We added some Jewel Drops from Nuvo around the sentiment.  It makes me think of confetti tossed in celebration!

Neat & Tangled Magical Day

Today we're sharing a card we'll be making in June for "Make it Monday".

We used the Magical Day stamp and die set from Neat & Tangled, along with the Heart Frame Die from Avery Elle to create this magical card.

The back panel was cut using the Blueprints #27 from MFT Stamps.

It's difficult to see in the photograph, but we added Wink of Stella to the unicorns mane and tail and added some white gel pen accents.

Mark you calendars, this "Make it Monday" project is scheduled for June 12, 2017 from 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM.
