Hello Crafty Friends,
I here from a lot of people they love the final result of the turnabout stamps from Concord and 9th. But they find it daunting to use them.
Changing colours and rotating to achieve the pattern.
Well I come up with a solution were you cant go wrong.
Let me Explain.
By staying with a Monochrome design, then adding the colour to the images at the end. Even if you forget to turn the jig, to line up the next step you will not have to abandon ship. As your stamping in black on all 4 turns, you can not contaminate the colour. you just turn and stamp again. You will be unable if you stamped two or three times in a row. These designs will help you grow in confidence.

Follow the instructions on lining up your stamp in your Misti or stamp positioner.
Every time you stamp stick with the same colour ink. I used black for a monochromatic style.
My stamping is a little off but only us stampers would notice. (trust me!)
I cut my design down to 5 1/2 inches squared.
Then I mounted this on to 5 3/4 inches squared piece of black cardstock. Creating a nice boarder.
Using my pencils, I added colour to my images. I choose to stick to pink. But you could do all sorts of different colours.
Finally I stamped out the cup image included in the set and die cut it. I mounted it out on double sided foam tape and placed it in the middle. Also stamp the coffee in pink inside the cup.
My card was complete. I will be using this technique again as I don't always know which inks to choose for my combination.
Until Next Week Happy Stamping
