Kindred Stamps April 2020 Release - Monster Hunter

Image
Thank you for checking out my blog! I'm back today to share another sneak peak of the Kindred Stamps April release. Yesterday I shared my first sneak peak of the Seas the Day stamp set. Check out the blog post here. Today I am showcasing the Monster Hunter stamp set featured in the card projects below. These stamp sets will be available on Friday, April 24th.

*Warning! The last card project features explicit language!*
Project 1:
For my first card I made a spinner card for the coin image. When you open the card the coin spins like its being "tossed" in the air and it displays the sentiment "Toss A Coin For Your Birthday". I colored the coins and the character with my copic sketch markers. The card may look simple from first glance but I believe the spinning coin adds a nice touch.
Project 2:
I used multiple stencils to create a mystical magic background for this card. I used the Onyx Glitter Gloss and the retired limited edition super heroes stencil for the star bac…

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #75 - SPECTACULAR SKIES

Image
Hi everyone! Sitting around at home has given me a lot of free time to try new things. I decided to try my very first Lawn Fawnatics challenge. This challenge is the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #75 - Spectacular Skies. "Use the challenge image to inspire you or be inspired by the view outside your own door!" Challenge closes on May 3rd.  I used the Lawn Fawn A Little Sparkle stamp set and some mirror imaging techniques to make this card. For more details on this card read below! I used copic sketch markers to color the unicorn images from the A Little Sparkle stamp set. I used the mirror stamping technique to create the reverse image for the blue unicorn. For a tutorial on the mirror stamping technique check out this youtube video by Justine Hovey here. To create the background I used  Distress Oxides for a rainbow ink blending. I used the Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Borders to create magical clouds in the sky. I used some Tonic Studios Nuvo Drops to add some depth to the clouds. I use…

Kindred Stamps April 2020 Release - Seas the Day

Image
Hey friends! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm so excited for today because I get to share creations featuring my favorite animal, sea horses! 💜 The Seas the Day stamp set from Kindred Stamps features two sea horse images, a sea shell image and three adorable sentiments. I made three card projects to showcase this 2 x 6ets stamp set. This stamp set is available on Friday, April 24th along with the rest of the April release. Check back tomorrow for another sneak peak!

Project 1:
For my first card I used the Kindred Stamps Long Hair Stencil to symbolize moving water as a background. I stamped the "Go With the Flow" sentiment in a royal blue ink on the wavy background. I added some sand and sea weed die cuts to create an under the sea image. I added another layer on top in the image using acetate and white card stock. I embossed the white cardstock with a wave stencil to add some additional contrast. I used my copic sketch markers to color the sea horse and the sea shell. …

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to craft again! I took some time off to focus on some life milestones. My husband and I bought our very first house and our first dog! It was all so exciting and great to take the time to focus on these moments. I thinking about adding an "About Me" section to the blog so that I can add photos of all my fur babies, what do you guys think?

Now that my crafty area is all step up I am ready to craft again. I am so excited! This weekend Stamp Anniething is hosting some fun events in their Facebook fan club page "Stamp Anniething's Stampers." Go check out their page! The image I colored today comes from the event along with some other great images. I think this image is so great for this quarantine lifestyle but I think it will also be great for the holiday shopping season as well.

To color this image I used my go-to-markers, my copics. I used a lot of different brown combinations to add a lot of contrast to the image. Thank you for che…
