Scrap 'N Stamp Turnabout Blog Hop

Welcome to our July Scrap ‘N Stamp Turnabout Blog Hop!

This month’s blog hop is featuring the fun & fabulous Turnabout stamp sets, by Concord & 9th. Each of us in the Design Team will be sharing with you a unique project, made with one of these stamp sets. We don’t know which set each other is  using,but whichever ones we use, you’ll be seeing all totally unique projects.

If this is your first Blog Hop – welcome! It’s very easy to participate. All you have to do is read through each blog, and then at the bottom of the post, you’ll find a link to the next person’s post.  You’ll also see a complete list of participants, so you can either click the link & go in order, or be a rebel, and hop about at will! I’m the 2nd last in the line, so if you came in order you would’ve just seen the amazing Nancy F.’s creation. Isn’t she amazing?! After my post, you’ll want to head over to our wonderfully talented Guest, Sandi MacIver!  Now let’s get going!


It’s summertime, and the livin’ is easy! At least, it should be. And who doesn’t like a cool refreshing treat in the hot weather? My card features the Cool Treats Turnabout stamp set and coordinating Die set.

Doesn’t that look gooood?? One of my favourite treats from the ice cream truck is the ‘creamsicle’ – orange sherbet flavour outside & in. So cool & refreshing. I can’t remember the last time I had one, but you can be sure I’ll be on the hunt for one now!


If you haven’t used a Turnabout stamp set before, you’re in for a treat! So fun & easy to use, and it’s like magic when you see the final result. A stamp platform is a must to use these. Each Turnabout stamp set comes with it’s own ‘Jig’, for lining up the stamp perfectly. Once you’ve done that, then you choose your 4 colours for stamping. You stamp 1 colour at a time, cleaning the stamp in between colours. Also, after each colour you rotate your cardstock panel 90 degrees to the right. After a total of 3 turns, you’ll have stamped all 4 colours – and the magic is complete! That’s how I created the background for my creamsicle. Here’s a picture of the full panel, before I cut it down and added the creamsicle in the middle.

Look at that perfect square of snow cones in the very middle of the pane! *squee* That just makes my simple heart happy! The colours I used are Cracked Pistachio, Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers Distress inks.


To create the big creamsicle, start with a panel of white cardstock. Use blender brushes to create an ombre colour effect, with lightest at the bottom to darkest at the top. The colours I chose are Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Abandoned Coral.  To create the ‘sticks’, I blended on some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide onto a strip of white cardstock.

Next, use the coordinating Cool Treats Dies with your die cutting machine to die cut the creamsicle and the 2 sticks. I also created 2 inside strips for the creamsicle, by blending Abandoned Coral onto 2 pieces of white cardstock, and die cutting them with the same dies as the sticks; I just elongated them.

Attach the sticks to the back of the bottom of the creamsicle, and the inside pieces to the middle of the creamsicle, with liquid glue. To give it the frozen, shiny look, I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze, and let it dry overnight. Once the glaze is completely dry, attach the creamsicle to the front of the Turnabout panel, using foam tape for dimension.  Stamp the sentiment, from the same Cool Treats Turnabout stamp set, onto a strip of vellum in Versamark ink. Cover it with white embossing powder, and set with a heat tool.

Now you can put your card together! Attach the sentiment banner to the front; add your glue to the back, where the letters are embossed, to be sure it won’t be seen when it dries. Now attach the whole panel to a card base that coordinates with the colour of your creamsicle, again with foam tape or squares.  Finish off the front by adding a few embellishments; I used some white enamel drops from my stash (we all have a ‘stash’, don’t we?!).

I had a strip of the background left over from when I trimmed the front panel down, so I glued it to the inside panel!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

I think your card is the epitome of summer, from the colours to the subject. I used to love creamsicles as well as fudgsicles. I haven’t seen a creamsicle for years though.
