Another Kindred Kid…

I totally didn’t realize I hadn’t posted in 2 days, lol!  We are having a garage sale this weekend and I just got busy getting all that together!  That and watching the entire series of Bones.  I just finished season 1 – loved it!  Thanks Jenn for getting me involved in yet another show~!  But seriously, how cool is it to just rent 4-6 episodes for $1.07 (tax included) at Blockbuster?  I love that.

Anyway, this was a card I showed during the release party GinaK had earlier this month.  And I never posted it here!  I love the Kindred Spirits line she came up with – very cool, realistic images.  And the sentiments for them are all so useful and heartfelt.  This is another summer kid fun image…or I guess it doesn’t have to be summer….

Also – I wanted to point out that the actual stamp image is not that wide.  I extended the creek and grass to the edge of my cardstock and drew the lines in with a Zig Millenium pen.  (You can totally tell which parts I drew cause I suck at drawing!) But I think overall it wasn’t terribly noticeable that it was drawn in later.  The actual image looks like this:

And here’s mine with the extra drawn on….


supplies: Exploring Nature by Gina K Designs, Sentiment from Kindred Greetings for Kids; long rectangle nestabilities; polka dot organdy from May Arts; pumpkin grosgrain from SU; palette noir ink; koh-i-noor woodless pencils, OMS and blending stumps; dimensionals; Dude! papers by Corina Nielsen for Prima; stickles for the top of the plants.

And woohoo! got the long rectangle nestabilities in!   I’m collecting them one at a time…..the good thing about rectangle (and squares) is that you can get the scalloped ones first and just cut a rectangle (or square) to fit inside until you can buy the plain dies.  I mean – I love the embossed imprint the plain dies give you – so so classy.  But I couldn’t swing buying them all at once, so I just got one scalloped set (above on card) and then cut the image to fit inside it.  It’ll work until I can get the rest!

Ok, off to bed so I can’t get the garage opened up nice and early tomorrow!

  • Great card. You really can’t tell what you drew in you brat. Seriously, the stream is cute. Also, great suggestion for the long nesties. I was considering getting the whole bunch with the cut@home coupon, but the guilt I feel for already doing that twice is kicking in.

  • As a librarian seeing people rent DVDs, I have to suggest checking to see if your public library offers that tv series! save your money for craft supplies 🙂

    You did a great job at extending your creek and grass! I would never have known if you hadn’t pointed it out.

    Very sweet card and your “extension” is not noticiable at all…silly. Hope the garage sale goes well. Looking forward to seeing you Thursday.

  • I think you did fantastic on drawing the creek and the grass. If you wouldn’t have pointed it out I would’ve never noticed. This card is so sweet!! I love that image. I hope your garage sale goes well! 🙂

  • I think it’s good that you told people you drew that in because they would have thought they were cheated when they got their stamp from Gina! Cute card!

    This card is so realistic, Emily. And your extended drawing is very good…looks like it is part of the stamp.

  • […] was tooo skinny of a point. The .05 is just perfect! I also use it on my cards sometimes. Like {here} when I drew the image out a bit – I used this pen! First I colored the extended image and then I […]
