Anniversary Release Full Reveal

Hello there!
Well it has been quite a summer here – well “Summer” might be exaggerating a tiiiiiny bit. It has been the worst.summer.ever. – weatherwise…I do not even remember how the sky looks when it is blue lol.

If you have been following along our Instagram and Facebook this past week, you will have caught a few glimpses of our new release!
Our Anniversary Release none the less! I cannot believe it has been a year since I nervously launched the first 7 stampsets.

Today I am here to share the complete reveal of the 8 new stampsets that will go for sale at

August 20 at 9am Central European Time

 

Are you ready? We have 8 stampsets and one bundle (the bundle is very limited in stock, so if you have your eyes set on that one, you might need to be ready early!).

Bloom

 

The bloom set contains one big Magnolia stamp and some cute sentiments that match the ones from our June Release.

Coffee is love

Confession time: I do not drink coffee, BUT I looooove the coziness of all the amazing coffee cards around social media and the Coffee Loving Cardmakers. This set works just as well for the tea lovers though!

Diagonal Stripes

Okay, this has just been a matter of time before this bad boy made it’s introduction in our geometric family. It fits American A2 sizes too.

For my koala bear

Joining the “For My…” family, these cuties are just waiting to be inked up 😉 I mean, Koalas right!?

Elefantastic

I am so so so excited about this baby 🙂
Flamingos and elephants are by far my favourite animals – I am just so drawn to them. So this was another must for the family.

Drinks are on me

I have to credit this stamp set to my friend Signe. We were going for a walk and started brainstorming and she told me that all the happy colours would work so well with summer drinks! And these would also be perfect for New Years card – that is my hope at least 🙂 They are like a small puzzle making it possible for you to create all kinds of fun drinks !

I love your melons

Yes, I named this set after an obvious boob joke. I just could not help myself!
I love #melonentierchen on Instagram by Pepitahasenkeks and it prompted me to do this set.

Lucky ME

A giant clover in triangles for good luck and love 🙂 It is to thank you all – I feel so lucky that you have all supported me for an entire year. THANK you!

Aaaaaaand we also have a promo going for this release containing 2 surprise stamp sets – but more info on that tomorrow.

Do not forget to stay tuned for our blog hop tomorrow at 3pm Central European Time.

Thank you for reading and for all your love and support.

Superhero Madness with Maria

Hello there

I have been on a fun crafting spree this week and wanted to share it with you all 🙂

The “You Pixelate Me” really has a lot of opportunities hidden inside. Plus it is super easy to line up – with or without a MISTI, so you can keep expanding your images in size. For these cards I have stamped the image several times for each – I used the MISTI since I am a monkey in doing things straight 🙂

I began by finding an image with a lot of superheroes. I used this one for several images:

Found on Pinterest – source missing.

I created 8 cards with Batman, Superman, The Hulk, Thor, Loke, Spiderman, Captain America and Ironman.

Oh my – I had SO much fun with these. When I first got going, I just could not stop again. And I am still contemplating some more designs. I mean – Wonder Woman just came out, right!?

For me these are the perfect boys/men cards. I have my own superhero who I could gift all of these to 🙂 Ha ha…

Here is a closeup of all the cards:

Spiderman

I think the Spiderman card i my favourite. I was just in New York last month with my boyfriend, and every single time we turned a corner, he had a Spiderman scene for me.

Captain America

The caption says “Congratulations on your day” in Danish. I did Distress Ink stripes for the background and went crazy with my Nuvo drops.

Batman

I have been wanting to do a Batman card since Keeway guest designed in March.
I used the text from “For My Caveman” and wrote bat instead of cave.

Loke

These are just my colours – and that might have been my only reason for doing this figure in the first place since I had to check with Jacob who he was 🙂
I used text from “For My Sunflower” to create the sentiment. I just handwrote Villain.

Superman

I couldn’t leave out Superman, right? Love that silkyhair 🙂 Text is also from “For My Caveman“.

Iron Man

I can’t look at this card without beginning to sing “I am IRONMAN” in my head. Awesome song. The sentiment is Happy Birthday in Danish.

The Hulk

This card ended up a little funky green, sparkle, disco-ish. But I still like it. The text is from Monkey Madness.

Thor

Nordic Mythology (wohooo Scandinavia) and Thor. I so wanted to do a lightning behind him, but I could not make it work. So instead he got some clouds lol.

Well, that was a whole bunch of cards ! And I could keep them coming – I had som much fun 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this little superhero(and villain) installment.

Hugs
Maria

Star Power Spotlight – part 2

Are you ready for the last spotlight post for this month!?

We are currently putting a spotlight on “Star Power“.

I wanted to end this spotlight with a little story:

  • Star Power is one of the first stampsets I ever did. I created it based on a doodling video I did in February 2016 which I got a massive response for (to me it was massive at least 🙂 ). The videos couldn’t be longer at than 15 seconds at that time. You can watch it here.
    When I received my first delivery of stamps, I was just doing it because it was a big dream for me, and I just wanted to try it out. I was very nervous that it would crash and burn. I kept telling myself “This is just a hobby – I am doing it because I love stamps and have been mumbling about this for so many years”.
    When I launched the stamps on August 20, 2016 I was SO nervous. I told my boyfriend “I don’t think I can do this – can you please press ´send´for me?”. I hadn’t slept all night and actually postponed it for an additional hour, because I was so nervous.
    Well it turned out, I didn’t have any reason to be nervous. The Star Power stampset sold out within 5 hours of launching the stamps. I was completely stunned.
    This stampset is still my all time bestseller, and I am eternally grateful that took the leap!
  • This is also a big THANK you to all of you. It was YOU who purchased the stamps and therefore YOU making my dream possible. Thank you from my heart.

Well enough with the sob stories (yes I feel a little emotional) – onto the awesome cards!

20 % discount is available until May 25 at midnight CET.

And now ! Onto the cards 🙂

Janni

Jannis colour choice never disappoints. This is just the most darling shaker card.

See that used Star stamp! Janni has made SO many amazing cards with the Star Power set. I really like how she combined the text from Tou Can Do It!

Again with the colours right!? The Congratulation text is from The Necessary One.

Sharna

My heart skipped a beat when I saw this. Sharna and watercolors is always a perfect combination.

Erica

As a big yellow fan – this card is perfection for me 🙂 The congratulation text is from The Necessary One.

Yes, Erica went all in again! She created three awesome cards. This card would also be perfect for New Years 🙂

I am ALWAYS in for a rainbow! Love the way Erica made the colours pop.

Maria

This was not an obvious color choice for me but I love how it turned out. I started out with being completely paralyzed by all the things I wanted to do – luckily it ended well 🙂

Do not forget the challenge / click here to go to challenge post!

  • The challenge runs until May 25 at midnight (where release week kicks off 🙂 ) and we will draw one winner who will win the entire new release for June between all spotlight challenge submissions! Wohooo!

This month we are changing things up a little. We will be having 3 spotlights, where we are highlighting a specific stamp set for 3 days. The Dream Team have come up with some epic cards and we hope you will have a lot of fun – read more here (including information on how to win the next release).

Do not forget that you can save 20 % on the You Pixelate Me stampset until May 18 at midnight CET 🙂

Today we have a bunch of cards highlighting the You Pixelate Me set!

Maria

I found a photo online of a pixelated version of The Good Dinosaur (have you seen the movie? It is so good!) and immideately knew I had to combine it with the Caveman stamp from For My Caveman. This is honestly one of my favourite cards ever 🙂

I hosted a stamping event in March where Tanja from HappyHillDk made this Pacman game! I just had to replicate it myself 🙂

Rosali

Rosali is a genius! Micki Mouse – It’s perfect 🙂 She combined it with Star Power. Perfect cards for so many occasions and of course – children!

This is just so awesome! I love how Rosali kept the card clean and simple to really make the figure pop!

You cannot look at this card and not smile 🙂

Natalie

Natalie always thinks outside the box. She says about this card: “I wanted to do something slightly different and I used the stamp as the grid lines for some hand-stitched embroidery. The possibilities are endless with this and I had lots of different design ideas before I settled on this very simple heart shape! “

If you do not already own this stampset – it is on sale by 20 % until May 18 at midnight !

Thank you for stopping by – I really hope you are enjoying this spotlight 🙂

Confirmation Cards with Maria

Hello there!
In Denmark May is the big months for Confirmations. That means happy teens, garden parties, church and togetherness 🙂 (Is that a word?). It’s a big deal!

My own cousin had his Confirmation May 12 – I cannot believe he is already so big. He was my favourite little buddy when he was a kid. Of course I had to create some cards for him! Both from our family and his parents requested a card for him and his friend.

Let’s get to it 🙂

For my first card I went with a Galaxy/adventure theme. I have been on a big Galaxy spree since Rosali visited and we experimented with creating different Galaxy backgrounds with different mediums. SUPER fun!

I was inspired by a card I saw on Instagram by @Irishandcraft to combine the You Make Me Fly balloon with this cute little astronaut. And it was the perfect match for my Galaxy craze 🙂 For the text I heat embossed text from Favoritsæt (danish text stamp) in white.

This is the card I made for my cousin from his parents. It is a big card – European A5. I never make cards this big, but it was a super fun challenge and I love how it turned out.

I did the sunburst background in green Distress Inks inspired by Laura Bassen and Rosali. I used four different colours, and alternated so it fitted with the 12 rooms I randomly sketched with a ruler.

For the green “sun” I used one of my favourite and most used stamps – Colourful Triangle Vibe. The text is from Konfirmand, which is the Danish Confirmation stampset I created for this season. It is sold out for now though 🙂

My last card is a combination of the first two. The balloons from You Make Me Fly and Konfirmand stampsets are the main focal point. The church is included in stampset. This card is also a big one in European A5 size.

I love making those Distress Ink clouds, but it takes me a few tries every time. So I have some extras that need some cover-up action 🙂 I rarely throw things out, because I am a big believer in the power of recycling.

I hope you are enjoying your monday and May 🙂
I will be leaving for New York thursday morning and I am SO excited!

Tomorrow another fun Spotlight will go live ! This one is super fun and contains one of our most popular stampsets.

Hugs, Maria

Scrap A Mania Recap

Saturday April 22 and Sunday April 23 I attended a Danish Scrapbooking convention called Scrap A Mania with aaaaall my stamps 🙂
It was a fun experience and I learned a lot and met a lot of great crafters. Here is a little recap from the weekend:

 

I was counting on having a big back wall where I could put up my homemade store-name letters + a series of photos and information of the amazing Dream Team. Unfortunately there was a mistake and we had to make a quick solution.

My dad came up with the idea to get an extra tabletop and voila! We had a sign 🙂

All the stores attending the convention, had to give an example of creative table decoration. I had some help from Dream Team member Rosali, to create the cutlery holders. Read and Download a DIY pdf here.

I also used the Spread Your Wings stampset to create name tags for the table. I heatembossed the image on vellum with white embossing powder.

I made some tags to put in food, glasses or whatever you would like, which included menu-information, a little word of wisdom, a little song and a thank you for being here message.

We had new Dream Team member Janni do a demo/coloring inspiration workshop on Saturday and guest designer Mia doing one on sunday. Thank you ladies!

My dad helped me on Saturday and Jacob helped me all Sunday. Epic Krumspring Team 🙂 This is me and my boyfriend Jacob.

We also had a little challenge for the participants and the winner of a 250 kr gift certificate is Mette Laugesen with this awesome card:

Please e-mail me at info@krumspringshop.dk to claim you prize within 48 hours.

Thank you all for visiting and supporting my little business.

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 🙂

Hugs

Maria
