Release Inspiration with Dana

Happy Monday, Krumspring friends! Welcome to Krumspring June Release Week Day 3!
It’s Dana here with 3 cards featuring awesome new release stamp sets. I’m sure you’ll be in love with new stamp sets as always! Let’s get started!

For my first card, I used Awesome Triangle Wizard Stamp set and Monkey Madness stamp set. I couldn’t resist using all cute monkeys from Monkey Madness stamp set and tried showing all of them at once to you.

I started by stamping monkey images with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them using Copic markers. I added a big smiling mouth and cute tongue to some of them. For hugging heart monkey, I gave sparkles for her heart using Wink of Stella Brush.

For rainbow background, I tried new technique using alcohol markers and Ethanol inspired from Jennifer McGuire. She used rubbing alcohol wipes and Yupo paper in her video but I used Ethanol liquid in bottle and thick vellum paper instead.

First, I applied alcohol markers using their broad nips on vellum paper. I put Ethanol in small spray bottle and sprayed it to the rainbow colored vellum paper. Finally, I got a beautiful result looking like water drops. I then white heat embossed Awesome Triangle Wizard stamp on vellum paper and mounted it on the A2 sized white card base using glue tape.

Now, it’s time to arrange all pieces to finish. I stamped sentiment and heart image from Monkey Madness stamp set on die cut front panel. Then, I mounted all elements as shown in the picture using foam adhesives.


For my funky second card, I used Funky Pineapples stamp set. Aren’t they looking so excited? They are already ready for enjoying summer!

To start, I stamped pineapples with Versafine Onyx Black and dye ink on Bristol paper and colored them using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I drew sunglasses and added googly eyes for these summer guys. lol. For sentiment, I heat embossed it using gold tinsel embossing powder on a black card stock and trimmed it using scissors.

After die cutting the silver front panel 5 times and glued them each other for dimension, I adhered turquoise and hot pink card stocks from AC on A2 sized white card base. To finish, I mounted pineapples and sentiment where I wanted them using foam adhesive.


Last but not least, I featured You Are Awesome stamp set for my 3rd card. The scribbled circles are so very versatile and I used it as 2 different ways in this card.

After I saw this doodled circles, I said ‘Oh, hi big flowers!’ Haha. So, I white heat embossed them on watercolor paper here and there and drew free hand flowers using Alpha Tint Watercolor paints inside and between the circles. I painted them thinking about one of my fab flower, Ranunculus but I’m not sure the result. Just free hand flowers! Hehe.

I then heat embossed circles again, but used gold tinsel embossing power at this time on the vellum paper. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it using black sparkle embossing power. Then, I die cut vellum paper with circle die. Small hearts are originally from a medium sized heart shape glitter sticker, my teammate Rosali sent me last year :), I die cut it with small heart die and embellished them around circles.

To finish, I mounted warm grey card stock on A2 sized white card base and adhered watercolor panel on it.

Hope you enjoyed these cards and got some inspirations! Thank you so much for stopping by!
