Trash Pandas & Parks Cuties

Hello all!

I hope you are ready for one of the best Kindred Stamps releases that has occurred yet in my personal opinion.

I am so very excited for both of these sets as raccoons are literally my favorite animal and parks cuties just has a special place in my heart .

First, with my ‘trash panda’, I used a brown base card and an accent card patterned with raccoons that I purchased at my local Michaels. I then attempted to stamp with my memento tuxedo black ink right onto my raccoon paper, but it wouldn’t dry. I literally was able to wipe it off with a designated ‘craft towel’.  I then used 80 lb Neenah paper for the sentiments, because the previous strategy was unsuccessful. (Yes, mistakes DO happen).  I attached my raccoon that I colored using copics and wink of stella.

Finally, I used my mini MISTI to stamp the inside of the card with the best sentiment that is included with this stamp set.

For my second card, I started with an off white base and a ‘nerdy mickey’ background paper. I then colored in a dapper dude and utilized my Brother Scan N Cut.

Using my MISTI again to stamp the inside with a ‘dapper’ sentiment.

I also made a last minute third card with the most gorgeous magical castle. I really got to practice blending with my copics coloring this beauty. The heat gun also got out and ‘have a magical day’ was embossed in silver embossing powder.

I am so happy with having my blog set up and having these posts be a more regular event for me.

First Blog Post & 500 Member Celebration Giveaway (Mermaid Edition)

My name is Molly Dagg and I am a member of the Kindred Stamps design team. This is my very first blog post and also my first giveaway. The ‘mermaid princess’ stamp set is one of my favorites and with Christmas just around the corner, I decided to do a little mashup for my card to include for my giveaway.

‘Merry Christmas’

I started with a brown base card,  and used some festive paper for the background that I purchased at Michaels. I gave the background paper some ‘pop’ with dimensionsals, colored in my ‘mermaid princess’ and cut it with my Brother Scan N Cut. I put a Santa hat on her that I also purchased at Michaels. Finally, I heat embossed  the sentiment ‘Merry Christmas’ at the bottom of the card.

“We are SO excited that we have reached 500 members in our Fan Club! I know we’ve been quiet about this momentous event, but that was just because we’ve been working on a lot of things in the background. Such as… our giveaways, sales, the 12 Days of Christmas (if you haven’t checked them out yet, you need to!!), oh, and I don’t know RELEASES (this month’s may be my favorite and I can’t wait to share it)!!! Oh yeah, AND a celebration of the 500!
