The next Kindred Stamps limited edition kit release -- Neighborhood Friends -- will be available tomorrow, Friday, July 29th at 11am EST/8am PST. I've created a fun collection of projects using the various kit contents.
I colored the images with Spectrum Noir TriBlend alcohol markers and only used papers and dies included in the kit. The only exception is the tulle I used to create the two shaker cards and the googly eyes on the ATC-sized lunchbox notes.
I marked the upper corners of the cookie layering stencil to make lining them up easier. I inked the cookie layer with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink (Amazon affl) and then added the chocolate chips with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide Ink (Amazon affl).
I love making tulle shakers -- they are so easy to make. I cut a piece of tulle just larger than my inked cookie panel, adding double-sided tape around the back perimeter, then wrapped the tulle around 3 sides. I added some of the shaker mix into the 4th open side then closed up the final tulle side. Done!
I created a smaller shaker panel on this ATC sized, top-folding card. The card measures 2.5" x 7", folded in half to create the 2.5" x 3.5" size. I used my Mini Envelope Punch Board (Amazon affl) to create the envelope (using the recommendation for a card sized 3" x 4" on the punch board).
I created another ATC-sized envelope and a trio of ATCs using the papers. I wanted to create quick lunchbox notes and thought stamping these characters onto colored paper would do the trick; I just added googly eyes to give them a bit more character.
My final card features the new neighborhood street die and one of my favorite grumpy dudes that lives in a garbage can. I lined the backs of the buildings with the patterned paper as well.
I hope you've enjoyed my fun-loving collection! Which project is your favorite? Don't forget to grab the Neighborhood Friends Limited Kit this Friday, July 28th!
