Full of Pride with Kindred Stamps

Hello and welcome back fellow crafters!! I know it's been a little while since my last post. I've been working hard traveling from show to show with the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo!! 

I've gotten the honor to be able to do a guest spot with Kindred Stamps and I'm soo excited to share with you my projects!! This set is just too perfect for me! It's called Full of Pride and as the name describes it's about pride...pride in who you are!

Check it out here!


I used Zig Water Colors to do this and just colored the top of the paper in the order of the Pride flag. Then just spritz the paper with some water, hold it up and let the colors do their thing! I then stamped one of the sentiments from Full of Pride that really went well with what I was doing on the front. I also found some Kindred sequence that I had in my stash and glued down the matching sequence for each of the water colors I used.


I've always been a fan of finishing the insides of my cards as well so I continued the sequence to the inside of the card as well after stamping the rest of my sentiments. The sentiment from front to inside reads, "Let your true colors shine & live your life out and proud! I just LOVE how this card turned out!!

Here's my next card using the new Full of Pride set. 


For this card I thought it'd be cute to add myself and my husband on the front, I'm the blond, naturally, lol. I wanted the brick wall to look like the sentiments were graffitied on. This card is about LOVE, love for everyone!! I used a few different Kindred Stamp sets for this. The blond is from the It's About Time stamp set and the brunette is from the Scranton, PA Stamp set. I also used the Distress Brick Stencil that is out of stock right now, sorry about that.

Here's the inside.


I thought the inside sentiment really pulled it all together! Love is love is love is LOVE!!!




I really hope you enjoyed my creations using this set! I sure had a fun time using it!!

Check the set out here!

Drag Life with Kindred Stamps!!!

Hello and welcome back fellow crafters!! I’m doing a guest spot with Kindred Stamps for the November release and I had SOOOO much fun with this set!! It’s a set of fabulous Drag Queens!!!! Complete with some super funny, snarky sentiments!! SOOOO much fun!!! This is Drag Life!






The background was inked with some Catherine Pooler inks and Tim Holtz Oxides. The inside says, “Aging is a drag. Happy Birthday” How Cute is she!?!?!

For my next project I decided to do a little drag show! I used both characters that come with the set and created a stage scene complete with tracks for them to move around and work it girl!!!!





I’m soo honored that Audra asked me to help with this release as these queens are very near and dear to my heart! If you’re on my Facebook page you know that I love to dress up in drag and my best friend is a very popular Drag Queen & entertainer in the Los Angeles night club scene! Not to mention, a movie about drag queens back in the 90’s was what made me realize who and what I was , helped me come out of the closet and be a proud gay man!!

Thank you sooo much Audra from Kindred Stamps for thinking of me and having me a part of this awesome release!! I hope you all enjoyed!!!

Witt & Sass Stamp Company Designer Cupcake

Hello and welcome back fellow crafters!! I’m back to share my next project for Amy at Witt & Sass Stamp Company!!! This next set is SUPER fun because you can totally customize it over and over and over!! 

It’s called Designer Cupcake Stamp Set!! 


Okay, so my take is a little on the dark side, lol! I had to make an Over The Hill Birthday Card, so I choose to make mine the “Cupcake of Death!” Take a look.


I JUST love the way it turned out!! I masked the skull on top of the cupcake and added a “Eat Me” tag!!!


I finished the inside of the card with a dark little limerick and added the Happy Birthday sentiment from the set and again, the skull.



I found these pretty cool papers at Michael’s and the paper with the black design on it is a felt type paper, it’s pretty cool!!!


Make sure to hop on over to the other DT Members blogs and take a look at what amazing-ness they created with this set and stop by the Witt & Sass Blog for some more inspiration!!

I hope you enjoyed!!!
