Kindred Stamps Release: Bloom

Today I get to show off the fresh and fabulous Bloom stamp set from Kindred Stamps. It releases on Friday, March 22. The stamps in this set are not pop culture related, but t they are still adorable! And so very spring. I could not wait to play with them!

This project is a bright bridge card. I used a super simple fancy fold, perfect for a beginning stamper, and just as fun for a seasoned stamper.

Part of the magic of this fold is that it lays flat and fits in an A2 envelope, perfect for mailing without a lot of bulk!

I was feeling the orange this time, and kept my color palette pretty simple. The images are all colored in shades of yellow and orange with Copic markers, and our little girl is a brown that could represent many ethnic groups.

The diecut background element really helps to highlight this very feminine card. The big floral bouquet is adhered to an extra internal bridge to add even more depth and detail to this card.

My next projects was done on Neenah Solar White #110 cardstock because it can handle very light watercoloring and is that lovely bright white. I actually did all the cutting first, then the inking and coloring.

The flowers are stamped in Versamark clear embossing ink, then they are Copper heat embossed. I used ink squished onto a nonporous surface (the lid of the inkpad in this case), and a watercolor brush to color all of the flowers. Here is a list of the stuff I used.
  • Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo, Crushed Curry, Lemon Lime Twist Stampin' Up! inks with a watercolor brush
  • Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ripened Pumpkin, Red Berry, Bubblegum, and Morning Dew
  • Brutus Monroe Copper Penny embossing powder

The floral panels were popped up with coaster blanks I cut to size, and adhered to a 4"x5-1/4" panel that had been sponged with Lemon Lime Twist ink, spritzed and spattered with water. I then heat embossed this sentiment with copper embossing powder. After assembling the card, I added centers to the flowers with Nuvo crystal drops. Then I set the card aside to dry so I wouldn't smear those drops. :-)

This may be my favorite of the projects. I took a piece of construction paper that my grandchildren had finished playing with, and created a packet to hold seeds. This is the same size as an A2 card so it could fit in a standard envelope.

I used washi tape to mask off a uniform at border around the front and just the triangle for the inside. Then I sponge do with three colors of ink and blended with an ink blending tool. These areas were then spritzed with water and spattered.

I used liquid glue to adhere the front to the back along the right hand and lower edge to create a pocket.

The image of the little boy was stamped with Momento tuxedo black ink on Neenah solar white 80 pound card stock and colored with Copic markers. Here are the colors I used:
  • Hair: E33, E35, E57
  • Pot: YR14, YR24
  • Dirt: E44, E49
  • Leaves: YG03, YG17
  • Pants: B23, B37
  • Skin: E50, E51, E11, R20
  • Shirt: YG17, YG67, G29
  • Shoes: W1
The leaves and the circle dies our from spellbinders small diet the month kit and large diet of the month kits from December 2018. The banner is from Concord and 9th's Holly Jolly banner die. The sentiment on the banner is stamped with Versafine onyx black ink.

That's all I have for right now but I already have several other projects created to share with this stamp set. Look for those soon!

All three projects are really cute, but my favorite is the seed packet holder. This stamp set was perfect for that one!

Love the darker skin tone. I am constantly refilling my light colored skin tone Copics. Which has really made me realize how white washed the sci-fi & fantasy shows and movies are.
The seed packet is also a really cute project.

Rhonda Miller said...

These are all wonderful creations.
