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! ♥
