Today I wanted to share some cards I made with 2 stamp sets I got from Kindred Stamps.  I used Yo Ho and Never Grow Up as seen below.  I focused on Peter Pan for my Disney Theme. So let's go to Neverland.

I started by stamping the images from Never Grow Up, which I think should be everyone's personal motto in life.  I colored them with my copic markers and then cut them out on my Brother Scan and Cut.  I then had fun with my Classic Disney Cricut Cartridge and cut out some matching images from the movie to build the background for my characters.  I started with Tinkerbell and a little Pixie dust.


Then you have to have fun with Peter Pan and Captain Hook.  I added Skull Island to the card and the Pirate flag for Captain Hook as a backdrop for my characters.  Lastly I wanted to end with Peter Pan and Wendy.

On the last card I used Vellum and layered it to give the look of water.  I sponged color and added glaze to give the water movement.  I hope these help you to reminisce about your childhood and don't forget to Think Happy Thoughts. I hope your having fun with all the Disney themed projects so far and now it's time to continue on to our next share.  

Be sure to hop over to Liz 

Here's our line up in case you get lost along the way.

Distress oxide Valentine’s cards

Today I want to share cards I made for a Valentine’s card class. I’m using Distress oxide inks, gel press and RGSTUDIO360 stamps. I started by adding the ink to my gel press. I wanted a block look so I didn’t try to blend the colors. I spritzed with water and then pulled my initial print with vellum paper. I then took white cardstock, spritzed the gel press again and pulled a second print. I liked to light spotted print it gives.

I then cut the vellum page down to fit on the front of my card. I layered the vellum on white cardstock and then embossed hearts on the top. I added some twine and a sentiment using the following stamp sets: You Me and Yay Greetings

The last 2 cards we’re using thesecond print pulled on cardstock. I embossed with gold and used choose love and share the love stamp sets. I love how the gold pops on the background I made. I would love to show you and your friends how to make these cards. Reach out if your interested in hosting a class with some friends. You can purchase the stamps at Enter StampinNikki as your Studio Designer at checkout.
