I am the lucky last on the Kindred Stamps Blog Hop! 😊 This is my first time being a Guest Designer for any company and also my first time participating in a Blog Hop!
I am so excited to show you all my projects for the Kindred Stamps 2017 December Release! When I was asked to be apart of the December Release and given this Demon Hunters stamp set I squealed! 😄
I made 3 projects which include an A2 card, an interactive A2 card and 2 bookmarks!
I will firstly start off with the 2 bookmarks. 😊
I die cut the bookmarks using a My Favorite Things die with some white cardstock and then used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks for the backgrounds. The Angel one I used "Peeled Paint" and for Moose and Squirrel I used "Broken China". I stamped the bees from a Lawn Fawn stamp set on the Angel bookmark and the sentiment 'my PEOPLE skills are RUSTY' from Demon Hunters with Brilliance Graphite Black ink. Moose and Squirrel sentiment 'Emotionally Attached to Fictional Characters' from Demon Hunters was also stamped with Brilliance Graphite Black ink, the star background is a stamp set from Lawn Fawn and I used Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink. I added some clear Wink of Stella to the bees and Angel's wings. I then laminated both bookmarks and then punched a hole using a Fiskars punch and then threaded some black and white twine through the punched holes.
Let's move onto the A2 interactive card! 😄
First I cut my card base at 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches, and folded it in half. Then I cut the card frame (black cardstock) using My Favorite Things A2 Rectangle STAX Set 1 ( 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" ).
I used another My Favorite Things die - A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 2 ( 4" x 5 1/4" ) for the card front using kraft cardstock, to make an interactive opening window for the card using a Lawn Fawn die. I used a My Favorite Things stamp for the 'Merry Christmas' sentiment and stamped with VersaMark ink then heat embossed it with some WOW! Embossing Powder. I thought the card front was a bit too...plain, so I added a cute red button and some red sequins to make the card POP! I also added some clear Wink of Stella for a bit of sparkle to the Angel's wings.
Let's take a look inside the interactive card! 😊
I made a Christmas-y background on some white cardstock using Tim Holtz Distress ink "Abandoned Coral" and Distress Oxide ink "Cracked Pistachio" and then carefully used a water sprayer to spritz water onto the pistachio colour to make it look more fun.I used an alphabet stamp set from Lawn Fawn to create the 'TO: YOU, FROM: and &' and I used 'MOOSE' and 'SQUIRREL' from the Demon Hunters set using Brilliance Graphite Black ink.
The Christmas hats were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black from a Lawn Fawn stamp set (one was mirror image stamped), I used Copic Ciao markers to colour them in and then added some clear Wink of Stella for a bit of sparkle.
Last but not least, the A2 card! 😄
First I cut my card base at 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches, and folded it in half. Then I cut the card frame (black cardstock) using My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 ( 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" ).
I cut the card front with My Favorite Things A2 Rectangle STAX Set 1 ( 4" x 5 1/4" ).
I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink "Forest Moss" for the grass, "Faded Jeans" and "Black Soot" for the night sky and then used Brilliance Starlite Silver with a paint brush to splatter on some "stars".
I used a My Favorite Things die for the sentiment which I cut from some kraft cardstock, the sentiment 'My Prince Charming hunts demons, ghosts and monsters, has a brother and likes pie' was stamped with Brilliance Graphite Black ink.
All of the Angel, Moose, Squirrel and Car images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto X-Press It Blending Card so I could use my alcohol markers to colour them in. Everything was adhered with Tombow Multi Mono Liquid Glue.
