My energy levels have been seriously depleted since my surgery last October. It’s been really difficult just getting through each day so the tank’s been empty when I’ve tried to get creating. So, when I saw this stamp, I figured it just designs itself, all I’ve got to think of are the colours. The stamp is from Concord and 9th and they have a range of these turnabout stamps, designed to be used with a stamping platform.
Starting with a 5¾” square piece of card, I stamped my first colour.
The card was then rotated 90° and stamped 3 more times. You can use whatever colours you fancy, maybe adding a layer of embossing powder for some extra bling.
Since the stamped backgrounds were essentially the card, I wanted the sentiment to be the focal image so used Happy, Happy, Happy from Lawn Fawn, heat embossed in white onto black card.
The sentiment was mounted onto a stitched circle die-cut and the card finished with a few sequins. I love this pastel version!
This bright version was for a male friend so, rather than sequins, I added a little silver twine around the panel.
This one in shades of blue was for Mr L. The ‘husband’ was cut using my Cricut and I added some silver twine and heart rhinestones over a few of the stamped hearts.
These last 2 cards were made using the off-cuts from the A4 sheet. I only stamped 3 times as I quite like the less busy look but added embossing powder to one of the turns.
