Hi gals.  I’m excited to share a new challenge with you for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

This week the challenge is

Make Your Own Background 

We are showcasing Concord and 9th products this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see you use them.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.

I used the stamp called Triangle Turnabout.  This was a new to me stamp set and I can’t believe I’ve waited so long to add this to my collection.  This stamp is AWESOME!!!  There’s so many possibilities.  I mixed inks with embossing powders for this fun, fresh look.

This was so easy to make.  This is definitely a good stamp to have if you need to make a card or two in a pinch.  As I was making this, I was really liking how it looked with just one stamped impression.  It got even better with the 2nd stamp or turn.  I stamped it with Versamark for the first 2 turns and I could have easily stopped there.  I loved how it looked with these two different embossing powders.  Look at that shine!!
To start off, I had to make a jig.  Concord and 9th has a great video showing you how to use these turnabout stamps, but basically I made a 6″x6″ square out of chip board or cardboard and then I adhered my Sea Glass card stock to the jig.  Using my Misti I stamped my first “turn” with Versamark ink.  Leaving my card stock on the jig, I took the whole thing out and heat set my first embossing powder.  I put my jig (and card stock) back in my Misti and turned it 90 degrees clockwise.  You can go either clockwise or counter clockwise but you have to keep going in which ever direction you start out with.

I repeated the process 3 more times, but only once more with the embossing powder.  I chose another embossing powder for my 2nd turn.
Then I did the same thing two more times only this time I stamped it with Audrey Blue ink and then again using Slate ink by Simon Says Stamp.

Once I had my background done, it was really easy and quick to pull together my sentiment.  I used the Kind Card Frame Add On die and cut out 3 layers using Neenah Solar White 80 lb. card stock.  I cut it out once more using Slate Card stock by SSS.  I glued all layers together, but slightly offset the bottom layers which was the layer cut using Slate card stock.
Then I just heat embossed the rest of my sentiment with white embossing powder on more slate card stock and popped that up using foam tape.

I cut my front panel down to 4″x5.25″ and attached a layer of craft foam slightly smaller in size.  Then I glued the card front to my A2 sized slate background and then glued it all to a top folding card base.  I always use Neenah Solar White 110 lb. card stock for my card bases.  I glued my entire panel to the card base using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.
And that’s it!!
I’m really looking forward to trying this with different inks and even different embossing powders.  How fabulous would this look in purples and gold?
Sadly, this was all I had time for this week, but I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of this stamp in the near future.
If you’d like to see how I made this, you can either head to my YouTube channel where you’ll find all of my card tutorials or just click on the image below.
So now it’s YOUR turn, Happy Crafting

  1. You know what is the most amazing bit about this card? It is a perfectly stamped turnabout stamp card, which is so so so hard to do! And, it works for both genders! And the sentiment, I mean come on, that has got to be the nicest sentiment there is for a card. One kind soul to another! Your card inspired me to do a card with this stamp set! I will give you due credit for it! xx Ankita

    1. Well thank you, sweet friend. You are the kindest. 💜 That makes my heart so happy to hear that it inspired you to make one as well. Once I got my jig dialed in, it was pretty easy, but my jig was like 1 centimeter too large and it just was NOT working out for me at all. I almost gave up but then I trimmed a sliver off the jig and re-centered it and it stamped perfectly!! If you get your jig dialed in, it stamps beautifully!! Well I can’t wait to see what you create!! I look forward to seeing your creations every week anyway. 😊

  2. Wow your stamping is perfect, Misty! Isn’t turnabout stamping a little bit tricky, lols? Love the cool color palette you incoporated. Very modern and stylish design. Thanks for sharing.
