Kind of Batty Blog Hop Day 2!

Hi! Today is Day Two of the Blog Hop and everything is available in the store!!!! For the ENTIRE collection (both releases), click HERE!


For the entire Kind of Wonderful bundle, click HERE! For the Going Batty bundle, click HERE!

This release is pretty amazing because it's a mix of Fall/Halloween and some beautiful flowers! This collection really covers all the bases!

For my first card, I went with a completely Autumn feel.  As much as I love summer and miss it when it is gone, there is something about the crisp fall air and the beautiful leaves everywhere.  By using the Hello Autumn stamp set and coordinating dies, I was able to layer my stamped images to create realistic leaves. I used inks Tutti Frutti, Orange Twist, Tiki Torch and Shea Butter.


Next, I went full-on Halloween! Woo hoo! I used the new Spider Web Background stamp and Twilight ink. The spider and sentiment are from Everything But The Broom.  To create the background, I used Orange Twist, Lime Rickey and Pixie Dust.



My next card has more layering goodness! I just love multi-layering stamping.  Don't the flowers look so real??? I used the Rose Garden stamp and coordinating die sets.  I used a ton of inks on this card! With multiple layers of stamping, I actually picked out my ink colors ahead of time, which I never do, LOL! I used Midnight, Sauna, Flirty Fuchsia, Pixie Dust, Sweet Sixteen, Aquatini, Spruce, Grass Skirt, Lime Rickey, Party Dress, It's A Girl and Be Mine.


My final card is really fun.  I really enjoy making shaker cards and the new Three of a Kind die made my shaker card dreams come true!!!! I was able to create a larger window for the sentiment and I still could stack the sentiment and give it dimension inside the window! I've been waiting for a die set like this and it is just fabulous! The "YOU ARE" is from the Kind of Wonderful stamp set.  I used inks Garden Party, Midnight, All That Jazz, Coral Cabana and Pixie Dust.  The CP inks blend so seamlessly to make custom backgrounds!!!


Now it's time for you to comment to win!

My Hero!

Hi there! I hope you've had a great weekend so far.  I just wanted to pop in and share this card I created using the Kindred Stamps Limited Edition set You're Super.


I created this for my daughter to send to my son, who is currently in Boot Camp.  Besides the fact that we are super hero-crazed in my house, I loved the sentiment in this set, so I knew I needed it!


I used the stencil that came in the kit and colored everything in with my Spectrum Noir ColourBlend colored pencils.

Just a note: The You're Super Kit was SUPER Limited, but to win the stamp set, follow Kindred Stamps on Instagram or join the Fan Page on Facebook; they MAY have a few sets left to give away in the next few weeks.  Don't forget to tell them I sent you!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!




SUPPLIES:

Stamps: You're Super (Kindred Stamps)
Ink: Onyx Black (Tsukineno), Rockin Red, All That Jazz (CP Designs)
Paper: Premium White (Spectrum Noir), Gina K.
Other: You're Super Stencil, Spectrum Noir ColourBlend pencils, Crystal Clear Sparkle Marker

All Spectrum Noir supplies available on the Crafter's Companion Website, unless otherwise noted.  Affiliate links used.
