Janni

This delicate soft card is just amazing. The background patterns are just waiting for you to get going. Happy Birthday text is from The Necessary One.

Dana

This card just makes me smile. That happy coffee cup is a real heartbreaker lol 🙂 You Bring Out The Best In Me text is from For My Sunflower.

Erica

Erica went all in and created 4!! cards for this spotlight. This heart is just amazing. She used text from For My Sunflower and You Pixelate Me.

You can easily stamp this image several times next to each other. Erica did this and created and intricate background. She also used the Dahlia in Yellow in the subtle shape of a heart. Text is from The Necessary One.

Use the stamp as a guideline for an endless number of patterns. Here Erica created two cards with the same pattern but changed the colour. It’s funny how big of a difference that makes right? Dude you are so old is the text that goes with the You Pixelate Me stamp and Happy is from The Necessary One.

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! “

Rainbow Cards with Maria

Hello Crafty Friends and Krumspring Fans, Maria here.

Today is a good day because I’m back at the Krumspring Blog with three new cards.
But today is also a sad day, because it’s my last post as a Krumspring Dream Team Member.
I leave the team because I have too much work in my real job the next time…

For my first card, I used the beautiful “Star Power” Stamp Set.
I took the big star Stamp to create my own background using a Copic friendly dye Ink, then clear heat embossed. Then I colored all stars with my Copic Markers.
I stamped the Sentiment on a piece of black Cardstock, then heat white embossed and diecutted.
Then I mounted the background on a black cardbase using dimensional foam tape and added the Sentiment. I embellished the card with some little wooden stars.

For my second card, I used three different Stamp Sets = “You pixelate me”, “You rock!” and “Spread your wings
First I stamped the “You pixelate me” Stamp on a piece of white cardstock, then heat white embossed and colored with Copic Markers in all rainbow colors.
Then I stamped three Sentiments in a piece of black cardstock, then heat white embossed.
After fussy cutted the pixelate me image I mounted it on a black cardfront using dimensional foam tape.
Then I mounted the Cardfront on the black cardbase using dimensional foam tape too.
I added lots of sequins in all rainbow colors to finish the card

For my third card I combined the “Dahlia” and the “Spread your wings” Stamp Sets. First I stamped the Dahlia Stamp randomly on a piece of white cardstock then heat white embossed. I colored all blossoms and the background with Copic markers. Then I mounted the background on a black cardbase using dimensional foam tape and added the Sentiment. I stamped three little butterflies, colored them with Copic Markers and fussy cut them. I embellished the card with the butterflies and some clear sparkling sequins.

I would love to say a big Thank you to my “boss” Maria for her caring and thoughtful leadership of this awesome design team. I had so much fun and leave the team with a heavy heart.
A big Thank you to my lovely team mates too. Girls you are absolutely awesome and I love you.
Thank you for this great time!!!

Enjoy your day!

Love, Maria

Guest Designer Keeway – Part 2

Ba-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-batman! Hello friends! It is Keeway here and I have fun card I created with the ‘You Pixelate Me’ stamp set. This set is super versatile because you can literally create anything you want in pixel!


I just watched lego batman not too long ago, and it really inspired my card today. Literally. Haha! I looked up “pixel batman” in google and found an image that I can work with, and started coloring each individual box. I had to stamp the grid stamp twice because batman was a tad larger than the size of the stamp, but with some fussy cutting and gluing, I can create an image as large as I want!


I stamped ba-na-na-na-na-na all over the background over grey cardstock. Then I adhered my batman over the card with foam tape.

Now I have the perfect card to send to my nephew who loves batman!

Cheers, Keeway

Spring Festival Challenge 6 – Anna

Hello, Anna is here today with my card for Krumspring Stamps Spring Festival event!

Every designer has the specific challenge for you during this event. And my theme was – the sketch!

Oh I liked to make sketches ages ago! And for today I prepared the simple one, so you can create everything you want even if you are not very familiar with sketches.

I made You Pixelate Me stamp set the focal point of the card and put it on the place of the smaller rectangle on the sketch. I white embossed the grid and colored being inspired the embroidery schemes. I copied the butterflies from this scheme.

The banner under the central rectangle is cut of the green card stock and also I added the scalloped panel on the background for more dimensions. The sentiment is placed on two dark strips you can see on the sketch. I white embossed the phrase from For My Sunflower stamp set on the card stock of different colors.

And at the end I added some clear drops.

Have a good day and join our Festival!

Anna

Spring Festival Challenge 2 – Rowena

Hello friends!

Rowena here and today’s challenge is Easter! Create any projects or cards with an Easter theme.

Here’s how I created mine! I wanted to create a card with added details.

For example, for the grass, I white heat embossed ‘One Triangle at a Time‘ and I used a grass die (any grass die you have will do) to make the grass. The triangles just adds a bit of interest to the grass! Then I blended mowed lawn and twisted citron distress inks. Flicked some water for that distress look.

I white heat embossed  ‘You Pixelate Me‘ to create pattern to my tree and sun. Then die cut the sun and the tree. I blended squeezed lemonade  and wild honey for the sun. Twisted citron and forest moss for the tree.

I think using these two stamps just adds a bit of something to your plain paper, when die cutting any image. You can totally add pattern to any die cuts you have.The cute little house is from the ‘You make me Fly‘ stamp set. I colored the image in copics and then fussy cut. The bunny and Easter basket is colored in copics as well.To finish the card I heat embossed silver for the sentiment.

That finishes the card for today!

Rainbow Balloons with Anna

Hello! Anna is here today with my new card.

Here I played with new awesome You Make Me Fly stamps set. It reminded the movie ‘Up’ to my daughter and she asked if she could make one card too. So another card was made by me.

I stamped the balloons batch with the tiny house under them and colored with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. For the balloons I picked the rainbow color scheme – it always looks good and brings the smile.

Then I prepared the background – I used clouds border dies and light blue inks to make the sky. I fussy cut the houses with the balloons and adhered them all with the foam tape. And at the end I white embossed the sentiment on the strip of the black cardstock.

Have a good day!

Releaseweek Inspiration With Rowena

Hi there! Rowena here and today I have 4 fun projects to share, featuring some brand new stamps for an upcoming release(yes! our fearless leader has outdone herself again) Hehe!!! So let’s get started.

For my first card, I used the ‘You Pixelate Me‘ stamp set. Growing up and even as an adult we all enjoyed a little game of Tetris. So, my card is a play on the game.

I created different pieces based on the game and colored them with copics.

I then fussy cut the image and adhered it with foam tape. I then stamped the sentiment to finish the card. I just love this stamp!! The possibilities are endless.

For my second card, I’m featuring ‘You make me Fly‘ stamp set. This stamp can be used in so many ways. Here’s my take….

I created the sky by blending distress inks: mermaid lagoon and tumbled glass. I sprinkled some water and mermaid lagoon to add some interest to the background.

The grass was done by creating a stencil. I blended twisted citron and mowed lawn distress inks. After blending, I sprinkled some water and mowed lawn. I elevated the panel, so I blended the same thing on the card base.

The cute little house, balloons, and geometric tree are all colored with copics and fussy cut. I added foam tape and adhered to the card.

Lastly, I heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set in white on a piece of black cardstock.

For my 3rd card, I’m featuring the adorable caveman from ‘For my Caveman‘ stamp set.

As soon as I saw this stamp I immediately knew I had to create some painted rocks.

I first stamped the caveman, then stamped the sentiment just below the image(or anywhere you like), then I drew random rocks with an archival pen. Your rocks can be any shapes or sizes you like. That’s the fun part!

I watercolored the rocks with combinations of browns, grays, yellows, and reds watercolor. Sandy Allnock has a fantastic tutorial on her youtube channel you should check out (Link here).

To finish the card, I simply colored the rest of the images using watercolor as well. That finishes the card.

For my last and final card, I used the ‘For My Sunflower‘ stamp set. This stamp is so versatile, you can either stamp it on it’s own or as a cluster, like I did for this card.

I first stamped the image focusing mostly on the corner of the card and only stamping the top portion of the sunflower. I masked the first flower and randomly stamped the others.

I watercolored the sunflowers in yellows and oranges (even a bit of brown). The center was colored in brown. I added some grays around the sunflowers to make the image pop. I flicked some gray and white paint as well, to add a bit of interest. I then stamped a thank you sentiment to finish the card.

I hope you all enjoyed today’s post and got inspired. All featured stamps will be ready for purchase February 4. Yay!!

Till next time!! Thank you 🙂

Crafty Hugs,
Rowena
