Y’all, I got a SECOND set from Kindred Stamps April Release that I was able to create a small collection with! Allow me to show you the newest addition to the Kindred Stamps Naughty Line-Up: Cursive Curses!
I made a trio of cards, where I have used the Cursive Curses set with some of my very favorite Kindred Stamps stencils, so let’s get to it!
For my first Cursive Curses project, I did a simple sunset ombré background onto Watercolor Cardstock using the Aloha stencil! I just love how the Cursive Curses sentiments stretch all the way across an A2 sized card! I also love playing off the sentiment, which uses the term “sunshine”, and using a sunset inspired ombré with it!
Pro Tip: Consider using Watercolor Paper when ink blending with dye inks. This paper works extremely well with the dye inks. You also get a nice texture with the paper, which is an added bonus!
For my 2nd Cursive Curses project, I did a layering technique with the Harlequin stencil (fun tip, you can shift some stencils with repetitive patterns to fill in the stencil gaps) to bring this sentiment to life.
I just love that there is a nice soft color palette, and a really bold statement (both literally and figuratively bold)! The Card Builder Basics Die Set is also perfect for making cards with only a sentiment!
Pro Tip: Sometimes, you can “matte”, or frame your main card panel, with 2 different colored card-stocks instead of just one! This can add a fun little bit of detail to your card, and also help give your card a nice sturdiness as swell!
For my final Cursive Curses project, I used the set to create a crass-filled Happy Birthday card! I used the Whimsical Garden stencil to blend up a warm background using Catherine Pooler inks.
Using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink, I was able to get a bold black sentiment on my card, and was able to embellish the strip with Jellyfish Sparkletz bits!
Pro Tip: When ink blending over a stencil, feel free to be splotchy with your colors! It’s a fun way to blend up that stencil, and is different than just your standard ombré!
And those are my 3 projects I created using the new Cursive Curses set! I hope this sparks some sassy and naughty inspiration for when you get your hands on this set!
