Triangle Turnabout

I’m back today with a card created using another one of the amazing turnabout stamp sets from Concord & 9th. This stamp, the Triangle Turnabout, was the original turnabout stamp they released. Since these turnabout stamps rely on fairly close placement, it’s pretty important to use some type of stamp positioning tool when using them. I used the original sized MISTI stamping tool since I was working with a 6×6″ jig for rotating my cardstock panel.

For this card, I started with a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock from Stampin’ Up!® and some Distress Oxide inks. With the first stamping, I inked up the stamp using Picked Raspberry Oxide. For the second rotation, I used Cracked Pistachio Oxide. For the third rotation, I used Vintage Photo Oxide. For the final rotation, I wanted to add some embossing. I dried the panel using my heat tool then went over everything using an Embossing Buddy to make sure the embossing powder wouldn’t stick anywhere I didn’t want it. I then used VersaMark ink for the final stamping then heat embossed it using copper embossing powder.

Once I had all the stamping and embossing completed, I trimmed the panel down to 3-7/8 x 5-1/8″. I adhered the panel to a card base created from Spicy Yogurt cardstock from Altenew. I love the speckling on the paper. I think it works so well with kraft-type cardstock.

For the sentiment, I used the Say Hello Dies from Concord & 9th. I used the thin hello die from the set and cut it out from a piece of copper foil cardstock. Since this is such a fine line die, I applied some double-sided adhesive sheet to the back of the copper foil before die cutting. This made is so much easier to adhere to the card instead of trying to use some type of liquid adhesive. I applied the die cut then pressed it down firmly to set the adhesive and that completed the card.

I apologize the photos in my post today aren’t that great. There was so much shine coming off the copper embossing and foil, it made the card extremely difficult to photograph because it was throwing off my light meter and made things look odd. This card is absolutely stunning in person!

Until next time …
