(UPDATE: This limited box is now sold out.)
Guess what Kindred Stamps is releasing today?! The latest and greatest Prehistoric Family Limited Edition Box will be available today, Friday, May 14 at 11am EST/8am PST. I created a fun collection of projects with each of the characters, papers, sequin, stencil, embossing powder, new Build A Prehistoric Card die, and even the candy in the box. (Affiliate links used at no cost to you; I appreciate your support!)
To create the awesome dimensional background in the card above, I lightly misted an A2 sized panel (4.25" x 5.5") with water and laid atop my rubber embossing mat on my embossing machine platform. Next, I inked the included stencil with Pumice Stone Distress Oxide Ink (Amazon affiliate) and laid ink side down onto my misted paper. I completed my die cutting sandwich for dry embossing and ran through my die cutting machine. The rubber mat pushes the paper into the stencil spaces all while smooshing the ink from the stencil onto the paper. I lightly inked around the panel edges a bit and that was it!
I have a video on my YouTube channel showing how to assemble the above Build A Prehistoric Car Die. There are many pieces and I know seeing someone assemble can make it easier.
For the remainder of my projects, I used Card Builder Basics Dies, Ribbon Rosette Die from i-Crafter (for the dinosaur ribbon card and birthday girl badge below), and Scallop Slider and Topper Die from Jaded Blossom (for the rock candy treat below).
I created a round card above using the Card Builder Basics Dies and the negative piece from the Build A Prehistoric Card Die in the box. To create the circle card, I die cut a complete circle from the larger stitched circle and then die cut again from a piece of paper that was folded at the top by about 0.5" or so, keeping the fold below the cut line at the top of the circle. This creates an almost circle (hee hee) with a flap at the top. Just glue the flap to the back of the full circle and done! No misshapen circle shape on the front, and your card easily opens and closes. Now, if you wanted the circle card to stand for display, you could slice the inner circle flat across the bottom, giving it a straight edge.
You could hot glue on a pin back, add to a stick to make a cake topper, glue atop a party hat.. shall I go on? LOL
Either eat that yummy rock candy in the box, or use it for a sweet treat!
A mini card using these adorable neighbors. I just cut in the shape of a tag and mounted atop a smaller top folding card base.
I absolutely love how this one came out. As with the birthday badge, this ribbon could be hot glued to a pin back as well. I drew in the whites of his eyes to give his expression more character. Just lightly sketch with a pencil the eye shape and use a Copic Multiliner Pen to draw the final line. Then, color as normal! (Note: Copic Multiliner Pens are watercolor and alcohol marker safe when dry, so they are amazing to have on hand when adding lines or correcting a stamp error.. lol)
