Kindred Stamps: Building Blocks with Spaceship Paneling and Wreath Stamping


Hello again friends! This post is for everyone that has spent hours in creative play with building blocks!

The Building Blocks stamp set was just begging to be stamped in a wreath pattern. There are templates you can buy, and you can create your own with some cardstock and a square die.

So I started this card by stamping the various blocks using my homemade wreath builder template on a 4" square of white cardstock. Then I colored the blocks with Copic Markers.

Red: R05, R24, R46
Orange: YR15, YR16, YR09
Yellow: Y02, Y06, Y08
Pink: RV02, RV04, RV09

Next the block wreath was cut with a stitched circle die, and at the same time I cut a coaster circle with the same die to add dimension. I glued these together.


The next step was to create the background with the Spaceship Panels stencil and Distress Inks.

The first layer is a blend of Squeezed Lemonade, Ripe Persimmon, and Candied Apple.

Then the stencil was applied and the background was inked again with the same colors. Except I swapped Mustard Seed for the Squeezed Lemonade. I just wasn't getting the contrast that I wanted until I switched to the darker yellow.

This was then die cut with a stitched rectangle die.


For the sentiment strip, I inked up a scrap of paper with Squeezed Lemonade and Ripe Persimmon and flicked some water on it.

The sentiment was stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black, then trimmed out with my paper trimmer. I used a scissor to create the slanted ends.

Now, go forth and create! Be sure to share your creations on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest using the hashtag #kindredstamps so we can all see what you have made!

Stamp Review Crew: A Little Wild

https://stampreviewcrew.blogspot.com/2018/11/first-frost.html
Hey friends! did everyone survive the deep freeze this week? I live in the coldest part of the country, and I got caught with my pants down! On Monday, I had about 20 chunks of wood left. We go through about 12 a day when it is between 0 and 45 F outside. When it is more than -10, we go through significantly more. I was wearing many layers, and rationing the wood, until Thursday afternoon when our wood guy could bring out a partial load! No way was I going to make him go out in -60+ wind chill. We are warm and toasty now, but 54 degrees in the house is not enjoyable. Or conducive to crafting! So, I started my project for this hop after work on Sunday night. I hope it turns out!


If you are following along in order, then you have just arrived from Bronwyn Eastley's blog. I am certain that she made something AMAZING!


This sweet little elephant never forgets a friend!

I wanted to do some ink blending and stenciling to create a leafy feel behind this little fella. I also did some masking to create sentiment spaces.


I had colored this elephant this summer, and I think I used Blends in Smoky Slate.


The sentiments are from Butterfly Gala, and they just seemed perfect for this card!

OK, off to the next blog!

Next up is Dawn Tidd! Love you, lady!





Kindred Stamps: Hair in the Air

Are you ready for a super happy card?! There are bright colors, shimmer, and awesome hair, like a party! The Hair in the Air stamp set from Kindred Stamps was quite inspiring.


There is a panel in the back using a stencil from Hero Arts and Spiced Marmalade distress ink.

The next panel is ink blended with Twisted Citron distress ink, then Shimmer embossing paste was applied through the Optical Illusion stencil.

Copics and Sakura Gelly Roll and Glaze pens made these images super bright.


I had so much fun coloring the first image, I had to make a rainbow of these little party animals!
