Hello there, my name is Michelle and I am delighted to be guest designing this month with Krumspring Stamps. Let me introduce myself a little, I am from London, UK. I have been card making for over 10 years now and my style can be defined as clean and simple. I first came across the owner of Krumspring, Maria, on Instagram. Those triangles really grabbed my attention! My card today uses the Monkey Madness set, along with the Awesome Triangle Wizard stamp.
I started my card off by creating the background. I took the Awesome Triangle Wizard stamp and inked this using Versamark Ink. I added white embossing powder to the ink and then heat set. I blended over various shades of pink and red Distress Inks and then spritzed with water. I set the piece aside to dry and then cut it down with a rectangle die.
I took one of the monkeys from the Monkey Madness stamp set and stamped this with black ink on to white cardstock. I took the ‘I love you’ sentiment from the set and stamped this inside the heart. They were then coloured using Copic Markers. I fussy cut the monkey out with scissors and then set about assembling the card.
I added the background panel to a black card base with foam tape. I then added a circle of vellum followed by the monkey (also added with foam tape). To finish off, I added black Nuvo Drops. I especially love the Awesome Triangle Wizard stamp and I see myself using this a lot! That’s it from me today, see you next week!
