Kindred Stamps and Thermoweb

Hello friends! I am playing with the You're a Scream stamp set from Kindred Stamps, and some products from Thermo-Web to make this all star slider card. I am excited to play with the Glimmer Gel and the Metallix Gel. They are both so light and creamy, and so shiny!

 I used the Turquoise Sea Glitz Glimmer Gel with the Metallix White Pearl with the Star stencil from Kindred Stamps to create this star background.

 The Star stencil with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink here on the slider panel. And Candied Apple Distress Ink for the red pieces.

This big fella is colored with Copic markers. The sentiment over his feet was an oops. I stamped it on the panel before adhering him on, and he was too tall! So I took some vellum and Black heat embossed the sentiment and adhered it right over his feet and the previously stamped sentiment. 

I used these colors:
R20, R22, R24
R39, RV69
W0, W1, W2

I also created a video of this card creation using the Lawn Fawn Double Slider dies.

I made a video with my own template for a double slider card. Check it out!

I did record the making of this monster slider card, but my daughter and her family surprised me with a visit this week and I have not had time to edit it. Hopefully soon!

Kindred Stamps Release: Peace and Love

Hello Kindred friends! It is time for the April Release from Kindred Stamps, and I get to be groovy with you all! I know I say this every time, but I really did have so much fun playing with the Peace and Love set. I love it!

My first project was this cup shaped card using the Honey Bee coffee cup card die, which just happened to arrive the same week at this stamp set.

I did a bunch of sponging, spritzing with Pearlized water, and spattering with clear water.

Then I heat embossed the peace sign in White Satin Pearl and White embossing powder. I think they look like bubbles.

The belly band slides off, and has most of the embellishments on it. The flowers are sponged and diecut with Spellbinders Layered Colorful Blooms dies and Nuvo Drops in Galaxy Violet.

The hippie girl is colored with Copics, and I wrote them all down. But that list is at home, and I am in Florida. Just got off a cruise ship... I will have to add that info when I get home. On Tuesday! 😏 Prepared, aren't I?!

Edited to add:
Hair: Y21, YR24, E99
Skin: E11, E00, R20
Dress and Flower: V000, V01, V04
Mouth: V000, R20
Boots: YR24, E99

Even the inside got some sponge and spritz love! The sentiment is from this stamp set also.

The top portion of the card has a diecut panel with insert tabs for a gift card.

Next I had to play with this awesome VW van. I love all the graffiti on it! The Swirl stencil was the perfect background accent here because the bus is pretty big and makes for a quick cardfront.

I started the background by sponging the 2 colors over the entire panel, then applied the stencils and sponged the same colors over the top. Of course, there was spritzing involved.  😁

  • BG11, BG13, BG15
  • RV04
  • YR16
  • Y04, Y06
  • N00, N1, N3, N4, N5, N7

Ok, I am really, really happy with the way all of these projects, but this is my favorite. At least for how the techniques and how quickly the idea gelled and came to life.

I did a double stencil technique. First with the Swirl stencil, then with the Comic Dot stencil, without removing the Swirl stencil. LOVE!!

I colored the lava lamp with Copics, list to come later. I also used the Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze Clear and Stardust pens.

Edited to Add:

Aqua: BG11, BG13
Purple: V000, V01, V04

I used mostly the same colors for everything, to keep things simple. And because I actually really love this color combo! It is a new one for me. OK, that is the last of my projects for this post. Enjoy the rest of the release!

The entire Kindred Stamps April release will be available Friday, April 26th at 8am PST/11am EST.

Kindred Stamps: You're a Scream

I have a quickie for you this time, as I am about to leave on a much needed vacation. This little one-eyed fella is from You're a Scream, and I think he is adorable!

I had created this background a couple of months ago, and it seemed perfect for this sentiment and character.

I used an Action Wobbler to boost the Wow factor!

I colored Mr. One Eye with YG11, YG13, YG17, W00, W1, W3, and W5.

I used Distress Inks to do the background, and I think the colors were Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn, and Crushed Olive.

He would be awesome in a rainbow of colors, and peeking from little windows. Of course, the ideas are flowing now when I don't have time to act on them. Go figure.

Until next time!

Kindred Stamps: Mythical Kraken

Who doesn't love a cheesy joke?! Mythical Kraken is full of punny fun! This set is in Last Chance mode folks. You want to be sure to get yours while they last! It was one of the first sets I got, and I have to confess that I had not played with it before now. Shame upon I! It is so stinkin' cute!!

I had a great time coloring him. Since he is a mythical beast, you can really play with the colors. Here is I used:
  • W2, W3, W5, B04
That's it!

The background was a turquoise dye ink, blended into a piece of watercolor paper, then spritzed with Pearlized water and allowed to drip down the panel and dried with a heat tool. Then spattered with water.

The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink, then clear heat embossed.

And a bunch of fish were stamped in the same turquoise ink, then a Clear Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pen over top to a little shine and dimension.

And the punch line on the inside! I had to scatter fish and ships all around it.

The fish are stamped with the same turquoise ink, then a blender pen is used to color them in. I went over them with the same Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pen in clear.

For a little set, this one really is loaded with goodness! I love the "I am a sucker for you" pun with the tentacles!!

When I started this tag, I was going to color each individual tentacle. But changed my mind when I was sponging the cardstock for the heart. This still looks awesome, but took a fraction of the time. Plus, there is no bleed through like there would have been with Copics.

The sentiment is Brass heat embossed on the sponged and spritzed cardstock. It is easier to see in real life, but not much. Maybe white would have been better. What do you think?

So, are we ready to make this set fly off the shelves? I know I am glad it is in my stash!

Kindred Stamps Newest Mascot

The Kindred Mascot! 

Kindred Stamps has a new mascot! He is a free download in the Kindred Stamps store, so go check it out here:  The Kindred Mascot

Of course, I had to play with him.  😁

The background is the Mosaic Turnabout stamp from Concord and 9th. 

I managed to sneak one of my favorite neutrals ever into this card: River Rock. It is a retired color from Stampin' Up!, but I have a stockpile of cardstock and ink refills. 

The sentiment is from a retired Kindred Stamps set called United We Stand.

I colored this floppy eared fellow with the following Copic colors:
  • Light skin: E30, E81
  • Dark skin: E08, E09
  • Mouth: W5
  • Teeth: W00
  • Light clothes: E71, E74
Dark clothes: E47, E49

Are you ready to go get yours? Let's see what you create, and don't forget to share it over on the Kindred Stamps Fan Club page on Facebook!

OMG guys! There is swag too!! Links below, but not affiliate. I make no money on Kindred stuff 😀
