“You remind me of the babe
What babe? babe with the power
What power? power of voodoo
Who do? you do
Do what? remind me of the babe”

Who doesn’t know these lyrics? If you don’t then you MUST get yourself a copy of Labyrinth. This is THE quintessential 80s movie with David Bowie in it. I probably have every line memorized, and it was very important to me that I introduce it to my young daughter. Labyrinth is now one of her favorite movies too!

Kindred Stamps has come out with their own Labyrinth inspired stamp set and I got to play with it! Oh my goodness, it is PERFECT! You can WIN your Goblin King set by reading on, details below!

I fully intend to color these images and to put them in clear plastic ornaments, wouldn’t the Sarah character be PERFECT in her white dress floating in a crystal ball?

I approached this card wanting to make an homage to the movie’s iconic poster. To achieve this I masked and layered all of the character stamps using Memento Tuxedo Black and 3M Post-It Tape, and a bunch of fussy cutting!

After they were stamped and colored with Copic Markers I fussy cut my stamped image out too. Then I went to work on the background, a video by K Werner inspired it. I painted the background in an hombre appearance from pink-to-purple-to-blue. Using a stencil by Hero Arts I daubed my glue pad by Tsukineko over my painted card base, I then covered it with WOW! Clear Embossing Powder and heat set that. When my panel was cool I then did another hombre wash using the same colors. The result is a slightly lighter, but shinier, stenciled area surrounded by darker, similar colors.

Next, I built up the shaker portion of my card. From a sheet of 80lb Neenah Solar White cardstock, I cut out an opening using one of the FABULOUS dies from Kat Scrappiness. I used the same die to cut out an opening in some white fun foam.

When the fun foam was cut out I trimmed it down to ensure that no edge of it could be seen in the creation of my card.

Using my tape runner I adhered my acetate to the white cardstock border. Then I used score-tape to adhere the fun foam to the cardstock border, once that was cut I used Ranger Multi-Medium Matte to glue my fussy cut image onto the acetate and the cardstock border.

I used the trimmed pieces of fun foam to help support the image. This will maintain the structural support of the card front, and still, allow the confetti dots to flow almost unobstructed in the card.

I poured my Kat Scrappiness Confetti Dots onto the acetate and covered the fun foam with more Ranger Multi-Medium Matte, then I adhered it to my painted card panel.

Once the panel was dried I used my tape runner to adhere to it to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock. Finally, I cut a small panel out, using a smaller Kat Scrappiness die, colored it with the same inks, and stamped my sentiment onto it. This was placed inside the card!

This might be one of the most perfect cards I’ve ever worked on. 😉

  1. I love your card – so many layers to make it gorgeous! I never got into Labyrinth myself – although the kids I babysat loved it and still do. The quote actually reminds me of Cary Grant, he said something very similar in one of his older movies (The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer – 1947). Thanks for having a giveaway – it’s fun to see what everyone has done with the new stamps!

  2. Such a great idea of embossing on top of the distressed ink. It adds so much dimension behind the shaker confetti. Just love this card and stamp set!

  3. This card is amazing! Lots of great techniques which work so well together. Awesome! And thank you for opening my eyes to this upcoming set – HUGE Labyrinth fan here <3

  4. Love this card! The background is gorgeous. I actually own the movie Labyrinth but have never watched it, even though my younger sisters have told me many times I would love it. I better watch it soon so I’ll know how to make cards for them with this set! 🙂

  5. I don’t remember seeing this movie but I love the stamp set!Kindred Stamps makes some awesome sets to enjoy.I love the way you did the background with the ombré colors an embossing.Great Card!

  6. The background is gorgeous.. what a labor of love! And the effects definitely paid off! The card is gorgeous–the colors, design, everything! Perfect execution! I hate to admit that I have never actually seen the movie (I know, shock face). I may have to change that soon.

  7. Omg I love this SO much. I didn’t realise you could even stamp like that. I need this stamp set. Labyrinth is my favourite movie. Thanks for doing the movie justice with your card. 😀

  8. Thanks for the step by step. As a visual learner checking out the process for masking was helpful… and I love this set so much!
