I am SO excited about the new Kindred Stamps Building Block stamp set!! If you're like our household, you enjoy using these wonderful little bricks to build iconic buildings, create scenes from your favorite movies, or even just play around!! Audra at Kindred Stamps, asked her creative team for ideas and somehow asked for something "Lego" inspired but still so unique!
The first card I want to share is a classic couples card! I built my own background paper using the side view bricks and top view of the flowers! They are colored with Copic markers, and I tried to use the basic brick colors in the build your own type buckets. I mounted it on a Brazill Basics burnt orange card stock, unfortunately, I was gifted it so I don't know the shade name!
Next, I built my couple, they were so fun! I loved picking which faces they got!! Thank goodness for my MISTI, none of this would've happened without it! I used my Chameleon Markers to color their clothes, I attempted some faded jeans, it was kinda fun.
Last, my sentiment, I love the "You Complete Me" sentiment. I took some Real Red cardstock from Stampin' Up! (if you don't have a demo, check out my friend Kelli, she rocks!) and used the Layering Ovals Framelits from Stampin' Up!
I completed the card with a few... LEGOS! I couldn't resist, I dug around in my bucket and pulled out some flat white 2x1s to add a little... embellishment! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
My second card, I really wanted to dedicate to friendship, because they really are the thing that keeps us standing and build us up when we are struggling!
I decided to try a little masking! This technique allows for you to tape or paper off a part of a stamp and layer the stamps. (The amazing Lydia at Understand Blue gave a good, simple video example here!) I figured the best thing to use for your first attempt at masking was Building Bricks... that you could stack. **HEHE**
Everything was colored up with Copic markers, I kept the girls simple but considered trying to mask some of the adorable flowers on to their shirts or pants (my BFF and I are a little obsessed with leggings so it would've been fitting!)
The little brick hearts were begging to be used and added to the cutesy of the card. I finished off with some of my FAVORITE embellishments, DoubleClick Skittles (you need them!) they give just the right amount of POP to any card and are soooo pretty! My card is layered with some retired Stampin' Up Designer Series Paper and ready for gifting!
I hope you all enjoyed my creations! I had so much fun making them and can't wait to get to play with my Building Blocks stamp set again! For making it through this long post, if you want to place an order on www.KindredStamps.com you can use my coupon code "RWINN10" for 10% off your entire order!
