Introducing New Dream Team Member Janni

Hi Peeps – happy saturday ! I am bringing some fun news to you all this lovely day – we have yet another Dream Team member 🙂 Woohooo! This time it is the lovely Janni who will be joining us!
Please share some love and welcome her.


How lucky am I – I just love Marias awesome stamps, and now I am on the Dream Team, can you believe it?

For my very first card I will share with you, I used the cool Hot Air balloon, and cloud from “Adventures Ahead” combined with the happy stamp from “The Necessary One”.

That Hot Air Balloon really makes me happy.
I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black, and did my coloring with Copic Markers. I used grays for the airballon, because I wanted the clouds to me highlight of my card. The clouds are colored in peach, pink, prawn colors.
I am a big fan of scallop edges, and white cardstock, so I made a white die cut scallop background at first, and then added a white die cut layer using a stitched edge. I stamped Happy directly on the background and added letter stickers BE.


Next I fuzzy cut the hot air balloon and clouds, added a lot of foam to the back of the images. To create some more life to the card I used sequins in the same colors as the clouds.

For my second card I used this totally cute avocado mom-to-be from “Avocado Family” and made a white and green shakercard. Ohhh I love shakercards!
I stamped my image with Memento, and colored with Copic Markers, using the colors Milky white, lots of greens, added a little pink for the cheeks and brown for the stone. How cute is she?!


For the background I used my scallop die twice on white cardstock, and once on a foam sheet. I used a smaller die to make the shaker window, and added a sheet of acetate to the window. Before taping it all together I stamped the sentiment “You are one hot mama!” on the background, added a small portion of green and silver sequins to make the shaker. I didn’t want to take the focus away from the cute miss avocado, so I used a much smaller portion of sequins for this shaker.
I hope you liked my first posts for the Krumspring Dream Team – I can’t wait to make new cards to show you.

Guest Designer Natalie – Part 2

Hello again Krumspring fans, it’s Natalie here again from One Scrappy Doctor, and today I’m sharing two more projects with the new release stamps.

First up I wanted to show you this colourful card I made with the Adventures Ahead Set. I started off by creating the blue background panel by sprinkling some Brusho onto wet watercolour paper and watching the colours magically spread and blend. When this was dry I trimmed down a strip to adhere to the left of my card, and used some of the leftover to stamp the clouds onto with white embossing powder before cutting them out and using them as embellishments.

For the hot air balloon itself, I stamped and embossed it onto watercolour paper and then used Zig Clean Colour Real Brush pens to colour it. I adhered this to my card as the focal piece using foam tape to give it extra dimension.

The second project I made is something perhaps a little bit different for this blog and that’s because I made a series of cards to be used in a pocket-page album.
When I saw the Avacado Family Set I just knew it was perfect timing for me since I am currently pregnant with my fourth child and I’ve been meaning to start a new album for this baby! This gave me the perfect excuse to make a cover page for the Project Life album that I plan to continue adding to as the pregnancy progresses, and of course after the baby is born.

I wanted my page to be brightly coloured and so I’ve stamped the Avocado people onto different patterned papers before trimming them out. For the main card in the top right I wanted to represent our family as it currently is, so I masked off the avocado seed from one of the larger stamps so that it became the father figure, while leaving the seed in with the other one so that it would represent me with my pregnant belly! Then I stamped three other little avocados for each of my other children.

I also made a couple of other cards for my page using similar techniques of stamping onto patterned paper and cutting them out. I used some of the sentiments to add captions to the cards, stamping them in black ink. Over all, I think this page makes me very happy with it’s cheery colours and fun images!

Next week I’ll be back one last time to share what I’ve done with some of your favourite classic Krumspring stamps!

Release 5 – Inspiration with Rowena

Hello friends! Rowena here today I have a couple of projects showcasing some awesome new goodies. So here we go!

For my first card, I created a birthday card using ‘Adventure Ahead’ stamp set. This set is fun for any occasion. The set came with two cute hot air balloons and tiny clouds.

For my card I used the smaller image, I simply colored the hot air balloon with copics. I then fussy cut the image and adhered it with foam tape.

For the background I used a cloud washi tape to create a sky background. I splattered black ink and a few sequins to add interest.

To finish the card I stamped a happy birthday sentiment from ‘The Necessary One’. This set is packed with all sorts of sentiments. It’s a definite must have 😉 That finishes the first card.

For my second card, I created a congratulatory card for my dear friend who is expecting their second child.

I did a watercolor background to create my scene. I stamp the little family from the ‘Avocado Family’ stamp set. I colored the images with copics and adhered it with foam tape.

I stamped the sentiment from the same set with versafine onyx black ink. I splattered perfect pearls solution to the background and added a few sequins to finish the card.

All stamps will be available for purchase on April 1. I hope you all got inspired and I cannot wait to see all your beautiful cards.

Hugs,
Rowena

Release 5 – Inspiration with Rosali

Hi, Rosali here! Welcome to another day full of inspiration with Krumspring Stamps’ new release which will be available from April 1st!

As many of you know, I had a challenge up on Krumspring’s blog during “Spring Festival” with a rainbow colours theme. And what can I say, apparently I am still hooked on rainbows, hah! They just make me happy!

For this first card I made, I used some colourful ink pads and stamped the beautiful hand-lettered “Congratulations” sentiment repeatedly on white cardstock. The sentiment is from the new stamp set called “The Necessary One”-you know, because it really has all the most necessary sentiments in it! ☺
To make the card really cheerful I wanted to put this cute guy putting his hands in the air from “Avocado Family” on top of my stamped background. I know it’s technically an Avocado but I think it can be whatever you want depending on how you color it! To me it is just a happy round critter with a cute belly, hehe! I stamped the image on vellum, heat embossed it in black and added very little colour with Copic Markers.
On the second card I made, I created a rainbow of colours by applying Distress Inks on some inexpensive watercolour paper with a round blending tool. I masked of a diagonal line each time and used five different colours of Distress Inks. This was totally inspired by Laura Bassen who is the queen of rainbow ink blending to me! ☺

For the sentiment, I used “The Necessary One” again, stamped the “Happy” with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and put some black embossing powder on top for a little bit of dimension.
For the butterfly I used white embossing powder and double heat embossed the image. Which means I stamped it with Versamark and after the heat embossing I stamped the image again on the exact same position as before (on top of the embossed image) and then sprinkled on another layer of embossing powder.

To give the butterfly some depth on my card, I glued the middle part down with liquid glue and popped the border of it’s wings up with foam tape. To finish the card off I added some sparkling clear sequins in various sizes.

I hope you like the cards I have shown you today and I can’t wait to see what all of you will be creating with this release! See you next time! ♥

Release 5 – Inspiration with Maria K

Hello there! Maria her today, sharing my cards for the release.

How awesome was Dana’s cards yesterday!? Swoon – I am so in love!

I have a whole bunch of cards, so you better be prepared for a colour party! And you will see the stampsets “hidden” (displayed lol) in my photos.

Spread your wings! For these two cards, I used the big butterfly from “Spread Your Wings” + the big Congratulations stamp from “The Necessary One”. I supplied some graphic shapes – triangles and circles – from “Geometry” and “Happiness Overload”.

To make this butterfly, I stamped the image with black memento ink, and then using my MISTI, used a clear glitter embossing powder on top. I coloured it using my Zig markers.

This Avocado Family is such a happy bunch. This mama is gently rubbing her tummy, aaaaw 🙂

For the background, I channeled my inner Sharna, and used Distress Inks to create the blurry watercolour look. It was a little difficult, but I like the end result.

How about some Spring Feeling? I continued playing with Distress Inks for the Dahlia card. It did not turned out how I envisioned at all lol.

I have really used my Zig Markers a lot this month! Playing along The Daily Marker 30 Day challenge. So much fun.

I also used my Zig Markers for the other flower power card. I used the “For My Sunflower” stampset and then added the butterfly and text from “Spread Your Wings”.

Adventures Ahead! I used text stamps from “The Necessary One” (which you cannot live without as the name says ha ha) and hot air balloons from “Adventures Ahead”.

I also did a Hot Air Balloon banner, hanging in my craft room – will show that one later.

I embossed the dot from “Geometry” and then did some inkblending for the background. I really like how this card turned out.

Did you make it to the end? Lol, I don’t know how to cut things short apparently.

Have an excellent sunday!
Release 5 will be for sale Saturday April 1st at 9am UTC +01 🙂
