Concord & 9th | Darling Petals

Hello there, I am back today with my next guest design post for Concord & 9th. Today we are using the beautiful new Darling Petals Turnabout set. This is slightly different than the other turnabout stamps from C9, as you use multiple colours on one turn of it. I did, however, use it a little different on my cards today.

My first card uses the main turnabout in the set. You would usually ink up one side of it with one colour and the other side with another colour (so that you can keep the foliage one colour and the flowers another). You can then change the colours on the next turn for a maximum of eight colours used. I decided to keep it with the two colours but I also didn't complete all of the turns, this gave me a more simple look with more white space.
I used MFT Blue Yonder ink for the flowers and Sno Cone for the foliage. As I mentioned above, I didn't complete all the rotations of the turnabout, so my flowers are just one layer but if you completed them all, they would be two. Once the stamping was complete, I simply cut the piece down and adhered it to an A2 white card base with foam sheet and DST. I took the sentiment from the set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Versamark ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. This was cut into two strips and added to the card with thin foam tape.

My next card uses the individual stamps that accompany the turnabout in the set. I first stamped the solid part of the flowers in MFT Grapesicle Ink and then the top layer with Grape Jelly. For the leaves, I used SSS Sea Glass for the solid layer and Audrey Blue for the top layer. I then stamped the friend word from the set using black ink.
I die cut the darling word from the Darling Petals Dies set from black cardstock three times. These were layered up with liquid glue and added to the card to finish off the sentiment. The panel was adhered to an A2 Grape Jelly card base with foam tape and DST. To finish off, I added a few Iridescent Jewels.

  1. Gorgeous cards Michelle and I love the colours the black sentiment really pops off the card


  2. Beautiful cards , like the first with the sole colour, very stunning.x
    Can you give me some advise please ? You have more experience with ink colours, so you know if MFT do a gorgeous shade of purple almost like Cadbury dairy milk wrapper ?

    1. Thank you so much, Andrea for all your lovely comments. I do not own it (yet!) but Boysenberry ink from MFT looks to be a similar colour to what you are after. If you google it, some samples show up where people have used it on their cards and it looks gorgeous to me! I hope that helps :)

  3. Oh I still can't get my head around those turnabout stamps, but you've made it look so pretty! It's lovely in the blues. xxx
