For my first card, I used the Concord and 9th Sprinkles Turnabout Stamp to create a colorful background. These turnabout stamps are such fun! I added balloons stamped with the Concord and 9th Happy Balloons Stamp Set and cut with theHappy Balloons Die Set. And the silver string is the perfect final touch!

I am amazed at the detail I was able to get on this card without much effort or coloring.

I used the Concord and 9th Happy Balloons Die Set to create a little balloon shaker for my next card. Using Stick It Adhesive Sheets helps to build this balloon and it doesn’t take much time.

For the background, I used the Concord and 9th Sprinkles Turnabout Stamp Set. I stamped two times in Versamark, once in white, and once in pool… turning between each stamping. Easy!

For my last card, I used the Concord and 9th Pineapple Perfection Stamp Set. It is brilliant! The set is designed to quick create a layered masterpiece.

I also added little Lucy’s Cards Eggshell Pearls.



Concord and 9th is celebrating two years! Angie and Greg emailed me when they started the company.

I also am thankful that they have formed friendships with other companies in the industry, such as Hero Arts. Makes me heart happy.

  1. I am loving the sprinkles turnabout stamp and the balloon stamp and dies! Love the look of the sprinkles on your cards.

  2. WOW, GREAT CARDS!!! So cheery, just love your colors. I’m new to Concord and 9th but am loving their stuff!!!! More stuff to add to my want list!

  3. I really adore the turnabout sprinkle background. How ingenious that a quarter turn will help fill in the background quickly.

  4. Thanks for the product close up Jennifer. Your cards are great, as always. My favorite from the new C9 release is the Sprinkles Turnabout. I have never used a turnabout stamp, but I really like this one.

  5. I adore the Seriously stamps because we need to let others know we appreciate them. This would be perfect to keep on hand in my purse and hand out at stores or anywhere when someone has done you a kindness. I especially like that I could put the piece of paper inside the cards, that you have so generously given us the downloads to print, that tells them they can pull the paper out and reuse card.

  6. These look like so much fun! I’d love to give them a try. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I think I’d have to say the Pineapple Perfection set. The idea of “quick coloring” really appeals to me. 🙂

  7. While those balloons are a lot of fun, I think I have to go with the sprinkles turnabout stamp set. Those turnabout stamps are incredible!

  8. I LOVE the balloon dies the best! But I LOVE the way they designed the Pineapple stamp. That is so awesome how you can stamp it and it looks like you colored it, love that! LOVE all the cards you created! A VERY fun release!

  9. The whole turnabout concept really intrigues me, so the Sprinkles Turnabout is my favorite from this release. Thanks so much for the inspiration, and for the chance to win a gift certificate – it would be lovely to win!

  10. I love making birthday cards with balloons, so I love all the fun balloon items.
    Though I’m also crazy about the turnabout stamps, and the sprinkles one is no exception.

  11. I always love the turnabouts…but OMG I thought the pineapple filler coloring stamps were all separate. That’s amazing 😀

  12. I love the Sprinkles Turnabout Stamp set. I make tons of birthday cards and it would be great with flowers, balloons, drinks…so many possibilities!

  13. Love the sprinkles background and the patterned balloons!! Thank you as always for a chance to win a giveaway 😊

  14. I really like how the sprinkles look on paper and I am up in the air about the pineapple set. I love your balloon shaker card. Thanks.

  15. Thanks for this video. It’s always nice to see the products in action! I think that my favourites are the sprinkles turnabout set and the here’s the scoop set. Both look so fun!

  16. These cards are delightful, Jennifer. As for the products, I like them both, but my favorite of the two is the set of balloons. Thanks for offering the $25 to spend!

  17. I have watched the you use the turnabout stamps, but this is hte one I want. I love the sprinkles. It makes a very nice background easily. Can’t wait to get it.
    Thanks so much.
