Marbled Turnabout Background w Video Tutorial by Jeni

posted in: Blog, Jeni 0

Hi, it’s Jeni with two cards using the new Marbled Turnabout stamp set by Concord and 9th. I always seem to do either two or five cards using the same stamp set at a time. Do you have the turnabout stamps? What do you love most about them? I love the new Jig to help set them up correctly without having to draw lines on your stamp. Share your turnabout cards with us at The Little Paper Treehouse Tribe.  I also have a video tutorial on the process of making these cards, but wasn’t sure how to finish the cards so I only filmed the full process for the green card.  The process for the pink cards are below, as well as links to all the products I used.


Tips in video tutorial

I show how to use the new guides that come with all the new Turnabout stamps and the new turnabout jig in the video tutorial so will skip that part here.



Using Distress Oxides, I stamped the Marbled Turnabout stamp with Black Soot, Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick. Cleaning my stamp after each colour and rotating the jig 90 degrees.

Trimming my card down a quarter inch to have a white border for when it goes onto its cardbase, I then diecut the circle die from the Birthday Basics set. I love when one diecut gives me two elements to use on two cards.



Finishing Best Day Ever

I held the negative frame to a pre-scored notecard and stamped a big bold sentiment through the circle. The sentiment comes from the Birthday Basics turnabout stamp. Foam mounting the pink marbled background onto the card base and this card is finished.  I thought about adding some black enamel drops but I felt that they would compete with the marbling on the background.



Happy Birthday

I used the positive of the circle die on my next card.  It took me a while to decide what I wanted to do with this one. First I tried to use a sentiment from the Sunshine Turnabout stamp but couldn’t find one that I felt would work.


I stamped a “happy birthday” on white card and trimmed it into a banner strip.  To add a bit more interest I added the pink marbled circle with foam tape to a pre-scored card base. Adding the sentiment strip with foam tape too. Leaving the strip the full width of the card base and made sure to have a double layer of foam where the sentiment strips lie over the card base.
