Crafty Turnabout Birthday

I have a coworker that routinely requests special cards for people. I love making them because she always gives me ideas of the recipient’s likes and hobbies. (And it doesn’t hurt that she always so graciously says she loves my cards.) This card is for a fellow Stampin’ Up Demonstrator, so we decided to go the crafty route. I really wanted to use the Concord & 9th Crafty Turnabout stamp set and coordinating dies. I used a Turnabout stamp once before. You can see that blog post here. It is so neat how you ink it up and stamp it 4 times, turning it between each color. You can learn more about them here. We decided we would trick her by using non-SU stamps and dies on the front. I hope she likes it!

JOS Color Challenge

I have spoken previously about a fun Facebook group I belong to – The Joy of Sets. Fiona, the administrator, conducted polls for everyone to vote on their favorite colors in each Stampin’ Up color family. After the results, she challenged everyone to make a card using all 5 colors. Here were the top 5:

It’s super cold here in Southwest Michigan right now and I have basically been hibernating under my blankie on the couch, watching too much TV. Hunter said she wanted to take on the challenge, so she got me off the couch and into the stamping room. Once I started, I really enjoyed spending some stamping time with her. I decided to ink up two new sets from the 2019 Occasions catalog – Bloom by Bloom and Itty Bitty Birthdays. You can never have too many flower or Birthday stamps. I die cut an oval out of some scrap paper and used that as my mask. I had planned on using my new Shimmery Embossing Paste I received today, but it was frozen. Seriously. Sponging was the next best idea, which I did using Pool Party. Then I spritzed on some Lemon Lime Twist. The card came together pretty fast after that and I can’t believe how easy it was to put these 5 colors together. Fun!
