Kindred Stamps May Release- Pride Parade

Hello Everyone, and Happy “Day 1” of Kindred Stamps March 2021 Release Week! I am so excited to be kicking off this release with one of the CUTEST new sets, Pride Parade! I’ve also been lucky enough to show off an additional SIX new products that will also be available on Friday as well: the Sentiment Strip Dies, Stitched Rainbow Dies, Pride Paper Pack, Yaaas Word Die, Pride Word Die and Build a Rainbow Stencil!

I have a collection of 4 cards that I made, so let’s get those rainbow flags flyin’ and get to it!

Kindred Stamps Products Used:
Pride Parade Stamp Set
Pull and Slide Die Set
Card Builder Basics Die Set
Distress Brick Stencil
Pride Paper Pack
Rainbow Sparkletz

Other Products Used:
Copic Markers
Blending Cardstock
Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide Ink
Black Soot Distress Ink
Colored Cardstock
Frame Slimline Die Set

For this project, I made a slimline card to look like I was throwing my very own little Pride Parade! In this newest set, there is a super adorable and large stamp included that has 4 animals marching together with an oversized rainbow flag, as seen above! Using the Pull and Slide Die Set, I turned this card into an interactive sliding card where the little parade slides from the right side of the card to the left!

One of my favorite sentiments from the set is the “HERE & QUEER” sentiment, which is provided in a really cool font that can be colored up! I heat embossed the whole sentiment in white, but then stamped the sentiment separately and colored up the word “QUEER” in a rainbow blend of Copic Markers!

Pro Tip: Don’t be afraid to try ink blending on colored cardstocks! For this project, I ink blended Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide Ink onto a light gray cardstock, because I figured that would be the color of the grout between the bricks! Distress Oxides blend incredibly well on top of colored cardstock! And if you’re not sure how it will look, use a small piece of scrap paper from your stash to test it out!

For my 2nd Pride Parade project, I wanted to make a card that was entirely dedicated to the Transgender Community. It’s so important during Pride Month to remember how many different identities make up the LGBT+ community!!

I used the really cute sloth from the Pride Parade set and colored them up with my Copic Markers. I used the brand new Stitched Rainbow die to make a rainbow the same colors as the Transgender Pride flag. I also used the hearts portion of the Build a Rainbow stencil to also show off even more colors of the Transgender Pride flag!

Pro Tip: With the new Stitched Rainbow Die, it cuts out 6 strips of different sizes which you piece together to build a rainbow! I recommend starting with your smallest of the sections first, and then keep adhering the next largest size! It will keep your rainbow very even along the bottom! Also, because each of the pieces are separate, you can use less than 6 pieces as well!

For my 3rd Pride Parade project, it just might be my most favorite of all. I used the Pull and Slide die and Stitched Rainbow die to create a hidden rainbow! When the recipient pulls the top tab, they will be surprised to find that a rainbow appears behind the clouds!

I used the little penguins from the Pride Parade set, along with the Pride Word Die! I used the sentiment “Happy Pride” from the Pride Parade set, but masked off the “Pride” so that the Sentiment Strip Die just read “Happy”. In think it works so well with the new word die, and also the new Sentiment Strips Die Set!

Pro Tip: To get an ink blended ombré on a die cut, I highly recommend ink blending first, and die cutting second! This way, you don’t have to worry about little intricate die cut pieces moving around on you, or getting little crease marks!

For my final Pride Parade project, I wanted to have a card be all about the word “Yaaas”. I used the little fox with the sign stamp, and the sentiment “YAAAS QUEEN” for my focal image. I also used the stripe portion of the Build a Rainbow stencil to give some of the corners even more pattern and color! I also used the Yaaas Word Die in solid black cardstock as a bold sentiment!

I used the stitched rectangle from the Card Builder Basics Die Set, and matted it with an A2-sized piece of Scalloped Rainbow Patterned Paper from the Pride Paper Pack to make this card as colorful as possible!

Pro-Tip: Add some depth to your word die cuts by cutting out multiple copies, and stacking them together by adhering each layer with an adhesive of your choice! This makes your word die stand out a bit, and also gives your card more texture!
