I can not believe that I have not had the opportunity to post about one of the recent releases by Kindred Stamps! The recent release Party Like it’s 1922 celebrates a well-known book and movie. But the BEAUTY of this set is that it can be used for a birthday card, graduation card, retirement card, and even a New Year’s Eve card!
I can not wait to see how people use this to celebrate New Year’s Eve!
To create this card I took some black Gina K cardstock and sprayed it with some Tattered Angel’s Glimmer Mist in Pearl. Using the Deco Palms stencil by Judikins as a mask, I applied Tsukineko glue to the black cardstock. Over this I applied some gold leaf that I found in the stencil section of my local craft store, the brand was possibly Martha Stewart, but I’m not sure.
Then with some masking, I stamped my two figures and colored them with Copic Markers. When they were colored I fussy cut them out and ran a black multiliner around the edges.
I cut another panel down, out of the same black Gina K paper, and embossed the sentiment and one of the accents from the stamp set. I then adhered my couple onto this panel. It was at this point that I realized that I wanted to do something with the edges of my black panel. I wished I’d realized this one step sooner, it would have made the next step easier.
I took gold ink from a gold UniBall pen and ran it along the edge. My pen had a clog in it, so I emptied what I could out and used a needle to apply what I could. The finished edge is less perfect than I would have liked, but I don’t think it distracts too much from the finished card.
I used a sheet of black fun foam to separate the top panel from the card front and adhered everything with Scor-Tape. Using my Kokuyo Tape Runner I glued that down to my card base.
I hope you enjoyed my card! I can’t wait to see what you make with this stamp set, there are SO many possibilities with it!
