Hey All! I’m back with another set of projects for the Kindred Stamps January Release!
Because nothing says Happy Valentine’s Day quite like a Stalker Card, I was really excited to get a chance to work with the new You’re My Everything set.
I’ve got 2 fun projects with this set, along with a color guide for how I colored up this baseball hat wearing creep.
For my first project, I made a pull tab card perfectly made for Valentine’s Day.
I colored up my guy from the You’re My Everything set.
Next, I cut a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of white cardstock. I sprayed my Tie Dye Stencil with Pixie Spray, and lied it on top of my white cardstock piece. I then used my blending brushes to apply 4 different Distress Oxide Inks: Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries and Candied Apple.
After I inked up my white cardstock panel, I die cut a heart window and a pull tab notch. I also used 2 heart dies to make a heart frame out of red glitter cardstock, and then the pull tab pieces, along with my sentiment and banner to frame sentiment. I also cut out an 4″ x 5.25″ piece of pink cardstock and blended the edges of where the heart window would be for some shading.
For my last panel, I cut out a piece of red cardstock in A2 size.
I put all my pull tab pieces into place, and positioned my creep in the proper position so that he would just peep over the edge of the heart window when pulled up. I adhered the pink cardstock to the tie dye panel.
I adhered my red glitter cardstock heart frame, the sentiment banner with frame, and a few sequins for embellishment. To finish the card, I mounted my tie dye pull tab panel to the red cardstock panel for a frame.
For my 2nd project, I colored the creepy guy from You’re My Everything (using a different color palette than the first card) and cut him out. I also die cut a light pole with my Cricut and trimmed a piece of light gray and dark gray cardstock both at .75″ x 4″. I also cut a 4″ x 5.25″ light gray piece of cardstock and an A2-sized piece of black cardstock.
I took my Distress Brick stencil and used Pixie Spray for an adhesive. I applied the stencil to my light gray panel and used Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide Ink on top with my blending brush. Once I removed my stencil, I used my blending brush to distress the edges with Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink for some shading. I also distressed the edges of the street and sidewalk .75″ x 4″ pieces.
For a little extra detail, I figured where my light post would be, and used some Scattered Straw Distress Oxide Ink to give a little bit of a glow to the light.
The last thing I needed to cut out was my sentiment and frame. After that, everything was ready to be put together.
I adhered my street and sidewalk pieces to my Distress Brick panel. I then placed my stalker guy and put the light pole on top of him to look like he is peering from behind it. I adhered my framed sentiment and then mounted the card to the black A2 cardstock frame.
And that’s my card!
