Love Bites | Kindred Stamps VDT


Hey everyone! Today I'm sharing another card made for the Kindred Stamps Video Design Team. I'm featuring the Love Bites stamp set and also a couple of  Kindred Stamps stencils; The brand new Zebra stencil and the Forest stencil




Watch the video here.






I used all 4 pieces of the forest stencil to ink the layers. Washi tape definitely helped out with keeping the paper and stencils secured to the glass mat. After I ink blended the trees in with green shades of Distress Oxide Ink I used the negative portion of the Forest stencil to mask the trees (stacking them so that all the layers are masked.) then ink blended in the sky portion.

The Zebra stencil was layered over the bottom portion after I ink blended with the darker colors of green. I used Twisted Citron over the top and created a stripe texture. For some reason this gave me a 90s vibe, and I'm ok with that.




Now I promise I wont be doing trees again for a while lol. I think it must be the fall weather bringing this out!

For the images I used watercolor pencils, the ones I have are a set from Fantasia. They are pretty in expensive. I wanted to this card to be for a friend. I know there are a lot of people who you the word "tribe" as a way to describe a group of friends. I've always called my little family a pack. So i'm playing off of that concept with the sentiment. 


I did leave this one blank on the inside. I think that it could be used for many different occasions, so I will customize it further when I need to.

Christmas Card Series #2 | Keep Calm and Merry On

Hey Everyone! Today I have a "use my stash" kind of card. Some of the main products are hard to find but you could easily reproduce this with different brand items. This is some simple stamping with an added punch of my favorite way to use gold embossing powder. 

Watch the video here.



The first thing I did was stamp the deer head with the wood grain design. I used a tone on tone technique for this that gave the deer a bit of texture. Then I stamped the second layer which has the stitched/ word design using Versafine onyx black ink, then clear heat embossed it. The banner was white embossed on to black cardstock and then I hand cut it out. The only die that came with this set is for the deer which I used to cut out the stamped deer image. While also using the same die to cut some white fun foam to pop up the stamped image. 



The wood grain layer is a piece of pattern paper from Simple Stories Claus & Co. I started stamping the foliage stamp from the Hampton Arts set with Distress Oxide Ink around the Mint cardstock's outer edge. When I finished that I trimmed that piece down to 4in x 5.25in. I used the same small foliage stamp and ink to stamp a couple of foliage bunches on the wood pattern paper. This will be covered by the label die cut. I used a Spellbinders label die with slate cardstock then gold embossed the edges to layer behind the deer.



After all that I just had to layer and adhere everything together. For the inside I used another piece of the Mint cardstock and a "Merry Christmas" Stampendous stamp.
