Welcome to the Kindred Stamps July Stamp release. We have a great variety of stamp sets for you this month. I am so lucky to be a part of this blog hop and for today’s projects, I am showcasing the new Plastic Friends stamp set.
I got carried away and created three (3) projects today. For my first card, I colored the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers. I fuzzy-cut the images with my precision cut scissors. For my borders, I cut some 110 lb. crd stock using the Drifting Stitches Borders by Simon Says Stamp. I also die-cut a patterned paper by Molly & Rex that Purchased at my local Michael’s Craft Store. Here is my first card:
I have yet to master the art of coloring hair. It is a huge struggle for me but I still LOVE how this card turned out. Here’s another look:
For my second card, I inked up some Bristol smooth white card stock with distress oxide inks with my mini ink-blending tools. I used Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Cracked Pistachio, Broken China, Seedless Preserves and Worn Lipstick. I sprayed it with water using my distress sprayer and dabbed it with my paper towel.
I die-cut the little window using a Stitched Rectangle Peek-A-Boo die by My Favorite Things. I adhered this onto my card base, and also adhered the cute image. I finished the design by stamping the sentiment. Here’s the second card:
Here’s a little close-up:
For my third project, I die-cut some Bristol Smooth white card stock using the CityScape die by My Favorite Things. I inked up my die-cut with distress oxide inks. Once again, I used Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Cracked Pistachio, Broken China, Seedless Preserves and Worn Lipstick. I then flipped the colored background and used Black Soot.
I sprayed my colored background with distress sprayer and dabbed it with my paper towel. I used a Clouds Border Stencil to color my card base with Broken China distress oxide ink. I adhered the die-cut piece to my background. To finish the design, I adhered the images and stamped the sentiment onto the card.
I think this one is my favorite. I just love the rainbow-colored background! Here’s a little close-up:
I added some white dots on their cheeks and also used my black glazed pen for the eyes. I really love how this card turned out!
