Kindred Stamps December Release- Girl Power

Sugar! Spice! Hope you’ve all been nice!… because it’s time for the Kindred Stamps December Release! I’m the most excited to be sharing my set of projects using the new Girl Power set, which really saves the day!

The new Girl Power set comes with 3 adorable superhero girls, and a handful of fun sentiments that fit them perfectly! I’ve got a little information on each project below, along with a Copic Marker Guide for each of the girls at the end! So let’s start!

Kindred Stamps Products Used:
Girl Power Stamp Set
Heart Layers Stencil
Cloud Builder Stencil
Peppermint Jazz Sparkletz

Other Products Used:
Copic Markers
Distress Oxide Inks
Versafine Clair Ink

For my first Girl Power project, I wanted to show off the super fun new Heart Layers stencil! It’s one of the stencils that includes both the positive and negative portions, so it really allows you to get in there and customize your creation how you want it!

First, I colored up my super girls with Copic Markers, fussy cut them out and set them aside.

For my background, I cut a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of blending cardstock and covered it with all portions of the Heart Layers stencil, which I sprayed some Pixie Spray to so it held to the paper a bit better. I removed the smallest heart, and used Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink and blended a solid layer. I covered this layer back up with the heart, then removed the next largest heart piece. I used Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink to blend a solid layer. I covered that layer, removed the next largest heart piece, and blended a solid Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Layer. To finish this layer off, I replaced the heart piece and removed the largest of the pieces (the portion that is actually the 6″ x 6″ stencil) and then blended another solid Candied Apple Layer. I adhered this panel to a 4.125″ x 5.375″ piece of light pink cardstock, and then adhered that piece to a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of red cardstock. My base was completed!

For the sentiment, I used the Cloud Builder stencil to shape out a cloud, lightly blending with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink. I fussy cut it out, and then used red Versafine Clair ink to stamp the sentiment “Girl Power”, which is included in the Girl Power set! I framed the cloud piece with red cardstock, and fussy cut it out again so it had that frame. Using foam tape, I adhered my Girl Power super heroes and sentiment cloud. I finished off this card by adding some Peppermint Jazz Sparkletz bits and adhering the panel to an A2-sized card base!

Kindred Stamps Products Used:
Girl Power Stamp Set
Past Shaker Packs

Other Products Used:
Copic Markers
Distress Oxide Ink
Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink

For my 2nd Girl Power project, I wanted to take a more clean and simple approach! So I took an A2-sized card base and set it aside, as I was going to use that in this design. I also cut 3 strips of white blending cardstock that were about 5.5″ x .75″. I colored up my Girl Power super heroes with Copic Markers, fussy cut them out right on the line, ran a Copic Multi-liner around the edge, and set them aside.

Taking each of the strips, I blended them up to correspond with each of the Girl Power super heroes. For the blue strip, I used Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink. For the pink strip, I used Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink. And for the green strip, I used Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink. I placed the strips onto the card base, so that they hung off the lower left corner of the card base, and adhered them down. I then adhered my Girl Power super heroes at the end of the strips. I trimmed off the strip portions hanging over the corner of the card, and then added some past Kindred Stamps Shaker Bits that coordinated with each strip for a little glitz.

To finish this card off, I used Versafine Clair Nocturne ink to stamp the “You always save the day” sentiment in the lower right hand corner.

Kindred Stamps Products Used:
Girl Power Stamp Set
Cloud Builder Stencil
Standing Stones Craft Die

Other Products Used:
Copic Markers
Black Soot Distress Ink
Distress Oxide Inks
White Gelly Roll Pen

For my 3rd Girl Power project, I was inspired by the Standing Stones Craft Die looking like a demolished city of sorts, and I ran with the concept! I took an A2-sized piece of blending cardstock and set it aside. I also colored up each of my Girl Power super heroes with Copic Markers, fussy cut them out on the line, and then ran a Copic Multi-liner along the edges of each of my super heroes. I accidentally got some black ink onto the face of my pink super hero, so I decided to add white Gelly Roll Pen accents to each of the super heroes’ cheeks to disguise it (hey, would you have known if I didn’t tell you what to look for?)

I used the Standing Stones die cut to cut out the stone border from charcoal cardstock. I then went in and used the white Gelly Roll Pen to add some window accents to each of the stone. Taking Black Soot Distress Ink, I distressed the edges of the demolished buildings. I set this piece aside.

Taking my panel of blending cardstock, I used the Cloud Builder stencil to blend up a firey, post-demolition sky of sorts. From top to bottom, I used the following Distress Oxide Inks: Aged Mahogany, Fired Brick, Crackling Campfire, Carved Pumpkin, Spiced Marmalade, and Dried Marigold. I then adhered my die cut piece to the bottom of the panel, and adhered each of my super heroes with foam tape. I finished off by stamping the sentiment “Punch today in the face” in Nocturne Versafine Clair ink, and adhering the panel to an A2-sized card base.

Kindred Stamps Products Used:
Girl Power Stamp Set
Futuristic Family Embossing Powder
Hearts and Dots Stencil
Crystal Stars

Other Products Used:
Heart Die Cut
Catherine Pooler Inks
Versafine Clair Ink
Colored Cardstock

For my final Girl Power project, I was inspired by those little valentines that kids pass out to their friends at school! So I wanted to take a mass production approach to these, and keep them simple yet fun! I stamped each of the super heroes in embossing ink, and heat set them with the embossing powder from the retired Futuristic Family Limited Edition Box (it’s a black powder with multi-color glitter specks)! I fussy cut them out and set them aside.

I then took a heart die cut from my stash (any heart shaped die will do, and really, any shaped die cut can work!), and die cut a large heart from light pink, light blue and light green cardstock. Tip: I would suggest using a heavier weight paper to give the valentines a nice sturdiness! I placed the Hearts and Dots stencil over each of the hearts and ink blended one color over each. For the blue heart, I ink blended with Fiesta Blue Catherine Pooler Ink. For the pink heart, I ink blended with Be Mine Catherine Pooler Ink. And finally, for the green heart, I ink blended with Lime Rickey Catherine Pooler Ink. After removing the stencil, I also ink blended the edges of the heart in the same color I used for the stenciling on that heart.

I also took each of the super heroes and distressed the edges of them with the same coordinating ink colors: the pigtails girl in Fiesta Blue, the bow girl in Be Mine, and the tough girl in Lime Rickey!

I stamped the super fun sentiment “Sugar & Spice you better be nice” from the Girl Power set in Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink in the center of each of the hearts. I then used foam tape to adhere each coordinating girl. To finish each valentine off, I adhered some Crystal Stars to them for added glitz!

And that is how I made my Girl Power collection!
