I was playing around this weekend with the Polka Dot Turnabout stamp I bought during a recent sale on the Concord & 9th website. This was my first time using it and things didn’t exactly go as planned. I’m not exactly sure what I did wrong, but I didn’t end up with the expected peg board appearance. I thought the results I got were actually really cute though, so I ended up with a very happy accident. 🙂 I decided to incorporate the panel into a card for the day 21 CARDtober challenge at 2Peas Refugees. The theme for this challenge was to create a card using a die cut as the focal point.
For the background, I stamped the Polka Dot Turnabout four times, each time with a different color, on a piece of white card stock. I used Catherine Pooler Designs inks in Mint to Be, Aquatini, All That Jazz, and Be Mine. Once I had all the stamping done, I trimmed the panel down to 3-7/8 x 5-1/8″. I matted it using a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock from Stampin’ Up cut to 4 x 5-1/4″. I then adhered that to an A2 card base made of white cardstock.
For the sentiment, I used the Saying Hi die set which was a STAMPtember exclusive from WPlus9 for Simon Says Stamp. Unfortunately, this awesome die set is no longer available, but any word die could be substituted. I’ll link to a similar hello word die with a shadow that is still available in the supply list below my signature.
I die cut the shadow from Bermuda Bay to match the mat layer. I applied some Sizzix Adhesive Sheet to the back of some white cardstock then die cut the hello three time. I removed the backing paper from the die cuts and stacked them all together then adhered them to the Bermuda Bay shadow die cut. I then adhered that to the card front and that completed my card for today.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you’ve enjoyed my card and will come back again.
