TCM Kindred Spirits

Hi there!

Welcome to the second day of The Craft's Meow June previews leading up the new release on Friday, June 21st.  Today, we are showcasing the new Kindred Spirits stamp set illustrated by Karen Baker.  

To see all the other designers' cards they've made with this new stamp set check out TCM's store blog.  While you're there be sure to leave a comment for your chance to win today's featured stamp set for yourself!

My first card uses both the outline image along with the layering images to make the flowers and leaves.  I loved how easy it was to line up all the coordinating images - seriously, every time I did it - it was perfect!  I cut the flowers and leaves out by hand and then layered them together around the sentiment strip.  Karen included some lovely sentiments in this stamp set too!

My next card uses many of the same elements - just a little selective stamping on the flowers and leaves.  Once again, I used a vellum overlay to soften the patterned papers a bit.  I stamped the sentiment on the die cut and then embossed it with a woodgrain texture plate and shaded it a bit with some soft pink/purple ink to match.  Some orchid baker's twine wrapped around the card front twice finished it off.

Have a great day!

Love all the layering and use of embossing folders and of course, the beautiful stamping.
