Concord and 9th Turn About Stamping

I have been secretly lusting after the Turn About stamps by Concord and 9th. I need another stamp set like I need a hole in my head and have done a good job of holding off. Well, that is until I saw the new Bundle Up Stamp Set and coordinating dies! The sweet little girl faces had me, so I placed my order for them along with two Turn About Stamps. Though I adore my new stamps and have had so much fun playing with them there were two things that rubbed me wrong about them. First, the girls are not included with the coordinating die set! I had to fussy cut them out. I would have paid a few dollars more to get them. In fact, I may not have bought the dies had I known the girls were not in it. Secondly, the Turn About stamps were created for the Misti. I don’t have a Misti, but two other stamp platforms. I had to do some tweaking to get them to work, but finally figured it out. Now that I know how to use these on other platforms I will happily purchase more! For those of you that are interested in these stamps here is a video I created showing how to use these on other stamping platforms along with a few hints and tips.

I used Rinea Foiled Paper  on each card and you can learn how to do that in the video as well!

This would be a perfect card for January!

The little bird sits perfectly on her bun, but her part line is very high and I preferred the bird  covering it.

It is so easy to make your card season just by switching up the ink colors!

Over all I really enjoyed the new (to me) stamp sets! They can be used for so many different occasions. It is a good value!

Floral Frenzy Cards

I whipped up a few cards with the January Inspirational Box from Brutus Monroe . I did not have much  time to craft and decided to foil them with Decofoil to make a stunning presentation. I used Colorburst on a few for even more character. The kit came with some sweet little bags that are perfect for holding gift cards. One of the stamps reminded me of hair and I decided to make a face out of it. For that card I used the black cardstock as the base, stamp the floral images and emboss them in gold making sure to do the edges.

Check out the video for the unboxing of the kit and a card and envelope demo:
