Hi, Rosali here! Welcome to another day of Krumspring release week!
I have to say, I had so much fun inking up the new stamps that I made two cards right away!
For the first one, I picked the You Make Me Fly stamp set! As I have several friends who just built a house or moved to a new house I wanted to make a card I could send to one of them. Here it is:
I stamped the cheerful balloons and the house on watercolour paper and embossed them to make colouring super easy! Then I used a few of my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush for colouring. After everything was dry I added polka dots to the balloons with a white gel pen! I also created a little background scene with hills and clouds. I used some die-cut repositionable labels and light Distress Inks to blend the ink onto the paper (since I used watercolour paper ink blending was super easy)! For my sentiment I used a die-cut piece of vellum instead of cardstock so that you can still see the beautiful balloons on the background! Lastly, I added a little heart above the sentiment to make the card complete! ☺
For my second card, I used the You Pixelate Me stamp set. It might look like a plain set at first but it really is super versatile and gives you so many possibilities to be creative! You can colour in a shape or word that you see in the squares or you can make a ‘Tetris card’ for someone who likes video games! I think I will make a crossword out of the squares for my next card! But for this card I went with the first possibility and coloured in a big heart with my Spectrum Noir sparkle pens and some gray watercolour:
I combined two of the sentiment stamps from the new For My Sunflower set so that it says “You bring out the best in me”! I thought it fitted perfectly because the pink colouring brings out the heart in that field of squares! ☺ Added a few sequins and my CAS card was finished!
I have to say, I had so much fun inking up the new stamps-I think you can use them all for so many different occasions! Which stamps sets are your favourites from this release? I would love to hear from you in the comments! ♥
