TURNABOUT TOOL KIT
If you haven’t heard about the new Turnabout Tool Kit by Concord & 9th, you need to keep reading! For quite some time, the amazing stamp company Concord & 9th have had these unique stamp sets called ‘turnabout stamps’. They’re unique in that the full image isn’t complete until you ink and stamp it 4 times, turning the image a quarter turn each time you stamp it, for a total of 3 turns. I hadn’t tried them before, but I really wanted to. The problem is, I’m not all that bright when it comes to figure out proper angles and measurements.
However – Concord & 9th to the rescue for those of us who are geometrically challenge – they just came out with the Turnabout Tool Kit! Problem solved, and we can now created with these fabulous images, like ‘normal’ people.
WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE KIT
Of course, I immediately purchased the Turnabout Tool Kit, because it includes everything you need, including a stamp set to get you started! I also added on to my order, so it qualified for the extra FREE Mini Spirograph stamp set!
The Turnabout ToolKit comes in this cute little storage box, and my free stamp set was tucked in along with it. (More details on the card in a bit – it’s what I created with the free set).
Inside the ToolKit is the Everyday Bouquet stamp set, coordinating Everyday Bouquet Dies, the Turnabout Jig, and EZ Dots applicator, an Adhesive Remover, and a booklet called ‘Learn to Turn’. The stamp set also comes with the Jig for the stamp. The free mini stamp set, called Mini Spirograph Stamp, came with a coordinating Mini Stamp Jig, for mini stamps!
You do need to have a MISTI or other stamping platform, for using with the Turnabout stamp sets. It’s all about proper placement of the cardstock, and the stamps, so that your finished image looks proper. Otherwise, it could look like a Salvador Dali painting! Which might not be a bad thing – depends on the look you’re going for, I guess!
MINI SPIROGRAPH STAMP SET
This is what the free Mini Spirograph stamp set looks like. The good news is, after the release of the Turnabout Tool Kit, Concord & 9th decided to release this cute stamp set for sale, as well!
See – it comes with it’s own mini Jig, for proper alignment! On the back of the stamp set card, it shows you what the stamp will look like, after stamping each of the 4 times. If you wanted to stamp a ‘lighter’ flower with less petals, just stamp it twice or 3 times, instead of 4 times.
STAMPED FOUR TIMES
I went with the full, 4 time stamping for my card, although I only used 2 colours.
CARD FRONT DETAILS
I chose to use Picked Raspberries and Seedless Preserves Distress inks for my flower. I alternated colours between stamping, so that I would have a combination of solid and dotted lines, in each colour. The most important part of using the Turnabout stamps is to clean the stamp in between stamping, and to turn your cardstock a quarter turn, between stamping!
After stamping, I trimmed down the panel and layered it on top of a piece of purple cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Spirograph stamp set in Versamark ink, covered it in White embossing powder, and then set it with a heat tool.
Everything is then layered onto a panel of dark pink cardstock, and then layered onto a card base of purple. I added some glimmer dots from my stash, for a little something extra.
