I loved these stamps when Karen Lockhart came out with them earlier this year.The little bug is adorable and fun to color. I thought they would make an excellent 'get well' Greeting Card Kit for our stamp customers on Stampassion.com. It's so useful to have a card, right there and ready-to-go, when you need one!
In addition to the Lockhart Rubber Stamps, I used Basic Grey's 6" by 6" Paper Collection, Kioshi. It has a great mix of vibrant and subtle patterns that, obviously, work well together. I came up with three cards for the kit but with these papers, you'll have fun making up your own designs.
I also used Divine Twine, a new product in the shop. Love the colors - take a look, if you'd like, just click here. The spool of Divine Twine looks big, but they are only 4" tall. We have spools with a Trio of Divine Twine colors (that Mary laborious cut and wound!). They are not up on the site yet, but I have hope they will be soon - lots of photos to take (too many, in fact!).
The cards are from Memory Box and the color is Parsley. I used PrismaColor Pencils to color this little dude but it would be great with markers or Copics also. As mentioned, it's fun to color. In part because it doesn't take long and you can get wild with the colors.
The shine on his wings and goggley eyes is Glossy Accents. The manufacturer, Ranger, make Mini Glossy Accents bottles, which I included in the Kit. It's great stuff - a clear, dimensional medium, that can also be used as an adhesive. It's self-leveling and dries to a very clear, hard finish. Doesn't seem to yellow over time either.
Here's card #3 with a little more subdued pattern paper. The circular flower was just fussy-cut from one of the Kioshi prints. I added a bit of Glossy Accents in the center too.
They all look great live-and-in-person. I can't help but think someone would feel immediately better if they received this little guy! He's so ugly, he's cute.
