Make sure to follow the Blog Hop at the bottom of this blog post to see all of the previews AND participate in a chance to win a stamp set from this release!!
The guest designers were not privy to any new release information until Kindred Stamps emailed us our assigned set. I was happily given Spooky Family. Audra so perfectly captured the essence of the Addams Family with Gomez, Moriticia, Wednesday, and Pugsley characters, as well as a handful of sentiments that scream all things Addams (snap snap)!
My mind instantly started racing with fun ideas for these spooky little people.. My goal was to create items to display every character at least once, and of course, Wednesday was used multiple times. :) How could you not.. look at that, err, happy face? :)
All was well until it was time to color. Black on black is not easy, but I played with a couple images until I could create enough individual definition between hair and clothes on the ladies.
Instead of shading into the center of her dress, as we often do, I shaded outward, creating a lighter outline to allow for better definition of her braids. Once I got that straightened out, Wednesday was a quick color!
How cute is this spooky couple.. Cara Mia!! (xx) I added the pinstripes with C7 and love how much character it adds to Gomez!
This spinner was fun, and much easier to make than I anticipated! I wanted to include the siblings in front of a simple scene. They are both suspended using invisible thread, which is adhered between the top panel and base card front.
Thank you so much for joining me in introducing the newest Kindred Stamps release Spooky Family! It is perfect for Halloween, but, let's be honest, this set is perfect year round!!
I would love to hear which card design was your favorite! How do you plan on playing with this Spooky Family set? So many ideas.. ;)
