2 Wreath Turnabout Cards+Video

Where have I been?  Well, for two weeks no where fun.  I!  Seriously, you may remember that we got all new heat and air in January.  That included all new ducts upstairs, which also includes LOTS of plaster dust.  I've wiped down every book (20 shelves worth) and taken everything out of closets and washed and put it all back.  

Then last week, I was somewhere Savannah with Louisa!  She's the most fun ever.

I also had some fun with these fabulous wreath turnabout stamps from Concord & 9th.

I made a video too!

The stamps are called "turnabout" because you turn the stamp a quarter turn and stamp it four times to get a complete wreath.

It has two different wreaths.  This one is all filled in and quite pretty.

This wreath is more the traditional ring and is very versatile.  On this card, you can also see a little peek at one of my new favorite stamp sets called Sophisticated Script.

Here's the video on how to make these cards:


  1. All that cleaning hasn't bee fun, surely! :) But I'm glad to hear that you have spent time with the sweet baby Louisa! :)

  12. So bright and cheerful. They're both delightful and the black and white twine is a nice contrast.

  13. Love how you've used each of these fab turnabout stamps to create a different look to the wreath of these pretty spring cards. The scenes you've created using the different elements are so lovely, and I especially liked #2 with the folk art bird. The twine was a nice touch to embellish and pop these colors. TFS
