One of the most recent releases from Kindred Stamps was the AMAZING Space Explorers set! I really really really wanted this set! I asked Audra, the owner of Kindred Stamps, for this set so many times! It is the most amazing stamp set ever! I LOVE all things sci-fi!
I was lucky enough to score a mini-card making kit from Papertrey Ink some time ago which came with some AWESOME stencils, I very much enjoyed using those on these cards! You can see one example here:
After I created a “space” themed background using Distress Oxides, I used Iridescent Deco Foil which is AMAZING when this card moves! The Deco Foil is almost too much for the eyes in real life! All I needed to do, to finish the card, was to adhere this ship onto it, which was colored with Copic Markers and a sentiment which was stamped onto this fishtail banner from Elizabeth Crafts Designs using Brutus Monroe Embossing Ink and some silver embossing powder, Hero Arts I think?
Next up, using another set in that same Papertrey Ink stencils, and using the same ship:
I totally got carried away with those stars there, I really regret that. :/ The planet is made up of two stencils, the second being the swirly clouds you see, which again I foiled but this time I used Deco Foil in the Rainbow finish.
Next up, carrying on the foiling some more is this card:
I actually found this stencil in the home decoration section of a big box crafting retail store! It made me think of computer mumbo jumbo. My goal with this card was to make the two characters look as if they were transporting from one place to another.
I used the Stitched Rounded Rectangle Dies from My Favorite Things and layered some vellum underneath to help the characters POP! The sentiment was stamped with Distress Oxide and clear embossed to help it POP! some more!
Finally, my favorite card ever:
The silver hexagons are made using Tonic Mirror cardstock and Sunny Studio Stamps Quilted Hexagon Dies, the smallest of the dies was also used to make the smaller hexagons.
I started by taking a dark gray sheet of cardstock and dusting the outside edges with Distress Oxide in Black Soot. The sentiment was stamped using black ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
I hope I have inspired you to play with your stamp sets, and if you don’t have this set you can hop on over to Kindred Stamps and score yours now!
