Triangle Turnabout

Turnabout

Hi All!

You may have seen the Concord and 9th turnabout stamps… they have been out for awhile and on my list! I finally got one (okay, two), and I’m using one of them today. These stamps are made to work in the MISTI, rotating 90 degrees each time to fill a background.

I love this stamp because you can easily create a multi-colored background. I mention in the video that I started using the stamp with lots of dye inks, trying to find a good combination of colors (I think colors are everything with this stamp). You have to use the same stamp with multiple colors, and many of my dye inks were leaving residual color on the stamp. So, when I stamped the next color, it was tinted with the previous color, even though I cleaned it thoroughly. After a lot of frustration, I had the idea of using my Oxide inks. They clean up easily and do not stain your stamps. I’ve always loved the distress ink colors but never stamped with them because the stamping quality is not very good. However, with the Oxide inks, it’s awesome! The colors are vibrant and solid. These inks are quickly becoming my go-to inks. I never thought I would say that… I was skeptical about them at the beginning, if you remember! I recently bought several from the new collection and used them today.

This card uses Candied Apple, Peacock Feathers, Black Soot, and silver embossing powder:

This stamp is great for holidays, too. Christmas colors, Halloween colors, pastels for Easter, reds for Valentine’s Day, 4th of July, etc. I used Cracked Pistachio, Lucky Clover, Candied Apple, and Enchanted Gold embossing powder for this next card:

Here is a close-up of the embossing powder – one of my favorites:

Finally, I slanted the background for this card with Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, Black Soot, and silver embossing powder:

I show all the cards in the video but I only created the birthday card, since the slant part was a little bit different and I wanted to show that to you.

Anyway, enjoy the video and have a great weekend!

    I’m so glad you demonstrated how to use this stamp. I’ve seen it before but never saw it used satisfactorily until now. It does create a cool look. I especially liked the embossing powder in combination with the Distress oxide inks.

    Good demo on using this stamp Darlene! I love the slanted card and the coloring. It reminds me of a shirt I had in my youth. LOL What other turnabout stamp did you order, Darlene. For those interested, I noticed the new Oxide inks are at Hobby Lobby in my area.

        Thanks Darlene! I like both of those also.

    Your cards look great Darlene! I tried the Triangle Turnabout stamp but was not happy with the way the triangles lined up–even with the Misti. I also have used the Oh Hello and Flower turnabout stamps and love them. I may have to try the triangles again.

      Hi Sharon. The first time I used the stamp, I lined it up perfectly. The second time was harder because my dye inks had stained the stamp, so I think that’s what made it look a little off. If you notice my photos, the pink/orange one isn’t lined up as well as the other two (which I created beforehand). But, I didn’t think it was noticeable enough to worry about.

    I love this stamp and have used mine a couple times. I agree with you about colors being the best thing about it. So many possibilities!
    Thanks!

    Great cards–I especially love the one with the Peacock Feathers, Candied Apple, & Black Soot. I don’t know why, but that color combo just seems so appealing. I’ll have to keep that in mind. I was kind of wondering if it would be possible to laminate the “turntable” you use to adhere your cardstock panel to? Not necessarily with a laminator, since that would have a small border of laminating film around it. But you could adhere strips of clear packing tape to it, after you mark your “X” & numbers. Then you could just wipe off the extra ink that gets on it when you stamp, so it would last longer. Of course, the stamp might cling to the plastic of the tape when you close the MISTI after lining the stamp up, and pick up the turntable/cardstock. But I would think you could always just snug it back in the corner of the MISTI. Anyhoo, just a thought. Thank you so much for demonstrating this stamp! 🙂 ~ Andrea

      Hi Andrea. The only thing I would worry about would be melting the plastic if you are heat embossing one of your stamped images. But maybe you could make a template out of an old Ranger craft mat – that would be pretty awesome actually!

    Love these stamps and your colour combinations are gorgeous. They are “up-there” price wise here in Australia ( AU$42 including delivery) and I would not use that stamp enough to justify paying that. Oh well, it is what it is!!!!

      You guys in Australia can get these stamps at Auzz Trinklets n Krafts for $26 with free postage. We’d have to special order the triangle one though as it is sold out.

        OMG, I am so excited. Thank you so much Connie for that information.

          No problem my friend. Just send Neha an email to let her know you want to special order. I’ve done this and the more emails she gets, the better!

    Thanks for the video. I had to have the triangle turnabout stamp, too! I haven’t had a chance to play with it, but I also thought about embossing one or more colors. A few years ago when Stampin’ Up offered both a red and green embossing powder, I thought it would be fun to use them with this stamp. Thanks for showing what that would look like!

    This turn about stamp is on my wish list Darlene. I love how your cards came out, the color choices are fabulous! Hugs, Brenda

    The new Catherine Pooler ink pads are also great for not leaving residual ink on your stamp with just a quick wipe of the absorber. Really nice colors also.

    this was beautiful! I ordered the stamp after viewing your cards. It will be perfect for my quilting sister. I’m thinking of making a set of thank you, birthday cards for her as a gift.

    Hi Darlene, Wished I had seen your video before trying it on my own. Used Close to my Heart in pads, and they stained my stamp. I was able to do it, but your cards are spectacular compared to mine. I think I will try it with Ranger’s ink oxides. I put a big “X” on the back of my stamp to center it. I have the sprinkles ink turnabout one. Like to see what your other turnabout stamp is.
    Thanks for the idea of using embossing powder. Joyce

    P.S. Kept thinking about you…. Glad your ok, I have been to both Galveston and Houston Texas,. I send out prayers to those people. I
