Oh boy, oh boy you all… let me just start by saying I hope you are ready for the most naughtiest of the Kindred Stamps Naughty series today! The new Kindred Stamps Naughty set, Merry XXX-Mas is getting exposed on the Kindred Stamps website this Friday, November 13th, and get ready for something super hysterical! And guess what, I’ve got 2 brand new special stencils, the Schlong stencil and Gingerbread stencil, being released this month too!!
Before you proceed any further on my blog, I’d like to take a moment to warn you that there are graphic images ahead that depict adult behavior. Viewer discretion is advised (and hey, you’ve been warned).
My first Merry XXX-Mas project uses the brand new Gingerbread Stencil with some Catherine Pooler inks blended! I start with a piece of blending cardstock, blended with Coral Cabana ink (leaving the center the lightest), going over the stencil in Samba ink, and then distressing the edges with the same Samba ink! Then, I used the same technique on a die cut circle with using Coral Cabana ink first, then placing the Candy Cane stencil over it and blending Rockin’ Red ink!
Brief Detour: what is SO fun about these naughty cookies is that there is a separate bow stamp, and you can add a bow to any of these gingerbread people if you want to designate them as a gingerbread girl (but hey, who said the bow has to mean female?!)! But, by all means, mix and match however you deem fit!
For coloring up all these naughty gingerbread folk, I took Gina K Kraft Cardstock, stamped each image in embossing ink, heat set in white embossing powder, and then colored them in using E31, E34, E35 and E37 Copic Markers!
I used a similar style to the 1st project, where I used blending cardstock to blend up Catherine Pooler Melon Ice ink (leaving the center lighter), placing the Schlong stencil over the panel, blending Catherine Pooler Lime Rickey ink, and then distressing the edges with the same Lime Rickey ink. I also used the same Peppermint Jazz Sparkletz to give this card some flair, along with a sentiment embossed in white powder!
For my 3rd Merry XXX-Mas project, I paired my “lying down” couple with the Blizzard stencil and some blue-green inks! For my blending cardstock, I first blended up Catherine Pooler It’s a Boy ink, with it being lighter in the center, and then applied the Blizzard stencil, blended a layer of All That Jazz ink, removed the stencil and distressed the edges with that same All That Jazz ink.
To make the stage, I used Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink to blend up the curtains and overhang section, and then Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink to blend up the lines in the curtains, overhang, and the ties. I cut out each of these items and set them aside.
Then, taking an A2-sized panel, I covered the top portion to reveal the bottom stage portion. Top to bottom, I blended Brushed Corduroy and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Inks. Then, I covered the stage portion, revealing the “behind the curtain” portion. I blended Barn Door Distress Oxide Ink around the edges, so it was lighter in the middle. Then, I placed the Christmas Sprinkles stencil over the portion, and blended a solid layer of Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink. Removing the stencil, I distressed the edges with the same Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink.
Taking the spotlight portion of the Stage Builder stencil, I used Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink to blend up the light and floor portion of the stencil, directly onto the panel. I adhered each of the curtain pieces and the stencil as well, with some holly sequins also adhered for extra embellishment!
And those are my 4 Merry XXX-Mas Projects!
