Dahlia Turnabout Thank You Card

I'm so excited to share this card with you. I recently visited the brand new stamp shop a friend of mine from Instagram opened up. Butterfly Reflections Ink has been an online presence for 5 years, but Vanessa opened her own in-person shop this month! The shop is in Kingston, NH, so a little less than an hour away from me. With all of the smaller, local stamp and scrapbook shops closing over the years, it is super exciting to finally have one close enough to me to drive to. And boy, has she fully stocked it with allllll the goodies!

While in the shop, one of the items I picked up was the Concord & 9th Dahlia Turnabout Stamp Set. I also grabbed the matching die. I'd seen Jennifer McGuire use this set awhile back and it was on my wish list, so I am very happy I was able to find it at Vanessa's shop. The way this stamp set works, is you stamp it four times, turning it 1/4 turn each time. I stamped with four different inks from My Favorite Things - Razzle Berry, Cotton Candy, Grape Jelly, and Grapesicle.

For the 'Thank You' sentiment, I used the Altenew Many Thanks stamp set, and stamped it onto some Raspberry Ripple Stampin' Up! card stock with Versamark ink. I used Ranger White Embossing Powder and heat set that, then trimmed it up. I attached the card front panel to a 4.25"x5.5" top folding piece of the Raspberry Ripple, then used some foam adhesive behind the sentiment to pop it up.

Such a pretty card, and really super quick to make, which was unexpected. I thought the stamp set for sure would take me forever to figure out how to use properly, but it was super easy with my Mini MISTI tool.
