Hey All! I want you to channel your inner misunderstood villain today and help me in welcoming 2 brand new stamp sets from Kindred Stamps, part of their November Release: Villainous and Villainous Sentiments!
I had the opportunity to create a few projects combining these amazing sets! So follow along with me as I show you some of the awesome things you can create with these sets!
First, I want to show you this Portrait Gallery Style Card I made using 8 of the characters in the Villainous Set, and the “You say villain like it’s a bad thing” sentiment from Villainous Sentiments.
I used the Onyx Glitter Gloss from Kindred Stamps and applied it with my Stencil Pal onto a spooky-eyed stencil from my stash to create an eery wallpaper. Then, I used my Cricut to cut out the white paper (I used the Sweet Sentiment Paper for ALL my Copic coloring) for the portraits and the black frames. I also cut out a piece of woodgrain pattern paper for the floor, and a piece of charcoal gray paper for a piece of trim.
I stamped each of my Villainous characters onto a corresponding cut piece of white paper and colored with Warm Gray Copics. I only used the following Copic Colors: W0, W01, W02, W04, W06, W08, W10. I would have been able to get more of a range of shading if I had more of the Warm Gray Copics, but I was honestly very happy with how all the coloring turned out!
I mounted the frames on top of the portraits and placed them with foam tape onto the purple spooky-eyed wallpaper panel. I used Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink to give a shaded edge to the flooring, then heat embossed my sentiment in white.
Finally, I used the Enchanted Mirror stamp to make a custom envelope liner!
For my 2nd card, I used the Lord of the Underworld Stamp from the Villainous set and put him on a boat in his home lair.
I created the boat in Photoshop and cut it with my Cricut. I’ve inserted the PNG of the boat below for you to use for your own project!
To make the river, I first lightly brushed paper with Tumbled Glass Distress oxide and then heat embossed the 4 swimming souls (AKA 4 characters from the Villainous set) in clear, and went over them in Stormy Sky and Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide.
To give the scene an underground cavernous look, I used Hickory Smoke and Black Soot Distress Oxides, and used a straight edge from a piece of scrap paper to blend against and to add some depth and texture.
Finally, I heat embossed the sentiment “No way in hell” from the Villainous Sentiments set on a stitched die cut rectangle.
I knew I had to play with this Voodoo Man from the Villainous set, and wanted to make a special project to feature just him.
For this card, I actually found paper at a local crafting store specifically for this project! I love the use of the skulls and different shades of purple.
I liked the background behind the Voodoo Man because I thought it looked sorta mystical and voodoo like. However, if you look close at the paper, it’s actually just different typed out characters (see the “&” directly to the left of the guy’s head?).
I used the “Let’s be a little wicked” sentiment from the Villainous Sentiments set and heat embossed it in white on a plum-colored die cut banner. I also added some half beads to give the card a little extra dark glitz.
The Villainous set contains so many awesome characters, and I love that most of them are women! I knew I needed at least one project that showed off this Wicked Girls Club!
My last project put 6 of the female villains together, which were all colored with Copic Markers.
I took a piece of dark gray cardstock, initially cut to an A2 size, then cut .25″ off the length and width, and used the Kindred Stamps Moons and Stars Stencil and applied Thermoweb Dark Gray Metallix Gel with my Stencil Pal to create a textured background. I also splattered it with metallic purple water color for a little extra glitz. I then mounted the dark gray piece to an A2-sized piece of black cardstock to create a frame.
I die cut a scalloped circle from purple glitter cardstock, and also cut a corresponding circle die cut in black that I could lay right on top of the purple die cut.
I then used the PERFECT sentiment from Villainous Sentiments for a female villain card, “beauty may be dangerous, but intelligence can be lethal” and heat embossed it in white onto my black circle, top of center.
I then framed these wicked women all around the sentiment and got my end result!
I really hoped my projects sparked some Villainous inspiration for your next projects!
