Are You Alliance?

This card was a BLAST to make. I got to use the new set, Space Western from Kindred Stamps. It was my first time fussy cutting my little characters out since my Brother Scan and Cut mat was dead.

I also got to practice coloring with a darker skinned character after talking to the professionals at the Copic booth from Emerald City Comic Con about what colors to use for shading cheeks. It’s always exciting to put new techniques into practice!

I used space themed washi tape that I found in Bend, OR! Then I  heat embossed the sentiment and some SU dimensionals to add a little pop to my characters as usual!

We’ve been changing things up this month, and we’ve introduced a Design Team to our group! These ladies are INCREDIBLY talented and will be with us for the next several months! We couldn’t be more excited to be working with them! We also have Guest Designer, Lois with us AGAIN, because we love her so much.

Please visit their blogs, and ours, and comment on all the blog posts. Doing so will make you eligible for winning shop credit! The winner will be chosen Friday evening, the night of the 20th, and will be announced in our Fan Club!

Release The Kraken

Mythical Kraken

Yes, this is literal release of the Kraken.

I used a magenta base, pearl paper for the sky and wave patterned paper for the ocean. Next, I layered my whale washi tape in the middle of the waves so it made them look like they are swimming! This is one hungry Kraken as he is going after THREE ships. The text was heat embossed on the front; inside the card I used Black Memento ink.

Inseparable Friends

These guys are the BEST of friends. I had a blast blending in the little fox and really got to play with my coloring.  Like always, I utilized my dimensionals from Stampin’ Up.

 

Now, you get to go visit my friends on the Kindred Stamps March Release Blog Hop! We have 7 stunning sets for you to enjoy this month and believe me, several are on MY wish list. I can’t wait to hear which you love and must have. Make sure you leave a comment on each blog to be entered into the drawing for a $10 Kindred Stamps store credit!

Owl Post

Happy February All,

This month’s Kindred Stamps release includes a very cute stamp set called “Owl Post”.

These magical owls are delivering mail so I figured that tags would be the perfect project to make with them. I designed them so they can then be added to any box or bag.

I colored my owls using Copics. I thought it would be fun to play with some color and picked a few fun combinations to play with. After they were colored, I then poked a hole through the corner and tied some cute bakers twine into a bow.

Our release this month is much smaller than the past but personally I think the sets are super cute! We’ve also got new Shaker Packs that are new and just beautiful!

As always, we have a blog hop going on for this release, to be entered you must comment on each blog. The winner will be chosen at 9:00PM EST on 2/14/18 and will win a $10 credit to the shop!

Dead But Dreaming

I am so excited about the January release for Kindred Stamps.  I get to introduce you to “Mythical Cthulhu”. This squid face little guy is just too cute, especially when he is celebrating birthdays.

I started with a blue base card, and then used a sparkly dark blue background for the ocean sky and wave paper from Bo Bunny. I then stamped my little guy using my Mini Misti & Black Memento Ink.

I precut my image with my Brother Scan n Cut, then added a few birthday pop up stickers to get him ready for the party. I love the birthday sentiment included with the set so I had to use it! This clean cut card was ready for the party!

Thank you for joining us in celebrating this month’s release! We know a lot of you have been hoping for sets inspired from times when dragons wandered the earth freely and dire wolves once again moved amongst this land. We brought that to you, and then some. We brought spooky things from the deepest depths of the oceans, and we captured the night sky for you. All you need to do now is to let your inspiration reign! Where will these stories take your crafting?

Before your craft table takes you to the many planets of our solar system, let us take you to the blogs for our Creative Team Members and that of our Guest Designer. Everyone is excited to provide you with a sample of their work and to talk about some of the products they used as well as their thought process.

On your journey, if you comment on each person’s blog post, you will be eligible to win store credit for a future purchase! You must comment on each person’s blog, as well as the blog post for Kindred Stamps. The winner will be chosen Friday night, 1-12-18, around 9 pm EST.

We thank you so much for your enthusiasm! We can’t wait to see what you’re inspired by, but remember, if you are inspired by something pop culture related, please refer to our stamp set names on social media and avoid using the actual show or character names. It is very important that we do not step on copyright toes! Thank you ever so much!

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.

We are really excited about this release! We have 8 new sets being released on Friday! Our collection is quite an eclectic one, with something to attract everyone! What is the set(s) you are most excited about!

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!

Kindred Stamps knows that we wouldn’t be here without you. We thank you with every breath we take for making our dreams come true! In that spirit, we would like to give each and every one of you a prize, but gosh darn it, that just isn’t feasible! So, we’re doing the next best thing! Each of our Creative Team Members chose items to give to you and are offering those items as a give away on their blogs and Instagram accounts. You’ll just need to hop over to their pages and comment, and hop over to our IG accounts and see what we ask you to do. We each have chosen our own way of handling the giveaways. You’ll get opportunities to win Kindred Stamp sets, sequins, fun washi, something handmade by the team member (hehe SURPRISE), and maybe some other extras!

In addition, Kindered Stamps is offering a $25 store credit to one lucky winner! Make sure to head over to the blog to learn more!
