Hi Peeps – this is Maria popping in to share some ultra fun and exciting news!
I am such a big fan of Natalie, and her projects this month, just knocked me of my chair – so I invited her to be a part of the Dream Team and guess what! She said yes! Please welcome Natalie to the team and show her some love 🙂
Hello friends, it’s Natalie here from One Scrappy Doctor and I am back one last time to share some inspiration with you as a Guest Designer, from some older-release (but still very classic) Krumspring stamps!
The Tou-Can Do It stamp set has been calling my name ever since I first laid eyes on it. I love that crazy little toucan image and the punny sentiment that goes with it. It even made my daughters giggle when they saw it!
I wanted fairly traditional colouring for my bird so I went through Google to find out what that might be, and then painted him with Glimermist to give it the saturated colour (and subtle shimmer) that he needed.
For the background I chose the solid leaf stamp from the set and used a double-inking watercolour effect with a couple of shades of green dye ink to create a pattern. And because it’s been way too long since I created a shaker card I knew that’s the direction I wanted to go with this one. I picked sequins that matched the same colours as the toucan and poured lots and lots into the pocket I made so that it would be really full!
The last card I have to share with you today is made with the Star Power stamp set. I really wanted to try my hand at creating a galaxy effect, and I used my Twinkling H2O’s to paint it. I think I might have overdone it with the ‘galaxy’ part, and should have gone a bit stronger with the black background, but anyway, you should see the shimmer on this – it’s quite incredible and really lovely in real life!
I want to thank Maria for inviting me to be a Guest Designer at Krumspring for this month because I really love creating with these fun stamps. I hope I’ve inspired you to try something new whilst I’ve been here sharing my projects, and I’m sure I’ll still see you around. Here’s a link to some of my social media channels if you would like to see more of my work.
