Kindred Stamps Guest Designer - Featuring 'Strong Maiden'

Posted by Aimee Chovan on

I'm honored to be guest designing for Kindred Stamps December release featuring the Strong Maiden stamp set. This set is near and dear to my heart and I really wanted to evoke strong emotion with my makes this month. 

The first card features a fiery background made with reflective Yupo paper and alcohol inks in red, orange, and yellow. If you haven't played with alcohol inks yet, watch out! They're addictive!

"Nolite Te Bastardes Carborundorum" is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and I added a corner adornment from Close To My Heart Baroque Boarders set. 

I spritzed my stamp with water before inking it up, to give a more worn, textured look. I just love the way the corner stamp evokes flames and at the same time, elegance. I then topped the card off with some black gemstones, mounted it on mirrored black paper from Tonic Studios, and mounted it on a burnt orange card base. 

For my second card, I stamped a Strong Maiden over an antique book page. I then stamped the same image on a piece of red and white card stock. I cut out the bonnet from the white card stock and the dress from the red card stock, and adhered them to the image, for some simple paper piecing. I colored the maidens hair with Zig water color markers.

I stamped the 'Resist' sentiment from the set onto card stock, distressed the base, mounted it on the same red cardstock I used for the dress, and adhered it to a tan card base. 

For my final card, I wanted to incorporate the sentiment 'We've been sent good weather' and pair it with red tulips. Tulips hold a variety of meanings and I encourage you to do your own research on their symbolism in well known stories.

 

For this card, I created a background using the Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from Sizzix for Stampin' Up! I mounted a tulip image from Local King Rubber Stamps that I colored with Local King markers and stamped on their special glossy paper. I adhered a few clear gemstones and mounted the card to white cardstock. 

This set holds so much possibility and I can't wait to continue playing with it. I want to see what feelings it evokes in you! Happy Crafting!

  • My name’s Eric and I just came across your website – greetingsa2z.com – in the search results.

    Here’s what that means to me…

    Your SEO’s working.

    You’re getting eyeballs – mine at least.

    Your content’s pretty good, wouldn’t change a thing.

    BUT…

    Eyeballs don’t pay the bills.

    CUSTOMERS do.

    And studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors to a site like greetingsa2z.com will drop by, take a gander, and then head for the hills without doing anything else.

    It’s like they never were even there.

    You can fix this.

    You can make it super-simple for them to raise their hand, say, “okay, let’s talk” without requiring them to even pull their cell phone from their pocket… thanks to Talk With Web Visitor.

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that sits on your site, ready and waiting to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know immediately – so you can talk to that lead immediately… without delay… BEFORE they head for those hills.

    Now it’s also true that when reaching out to hot leads, you MUST act fast – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later is huge – like 100 times better!

    That’s what makes our new SMS Text With Lead feature so powerful… you’ve got their phone number, so now you can start a text message (SMS) conversation with them… so even if they don’t take you up on your offer right away, you continue to text them new offers, new content, and new reasons to do business with you.

    This could change everything for you and your business.

  • Hey, this is Eric and I ran across greetingsa2z.com a few minutes ago.

    Looks great… but now what?

    By that I mean, when someone like me finds your website – either through Search or just bouncing around – what happens next? Do you get a lot of leads from your site, or at least enough to make you happy?

    Honestly, most business websites fall a bit short when it comes to generating paying customers. Studies show that 70% of a site’s visitors disappear and are gone forever after just a moment.

    Here’s an idea…

    How about making it really EASY for every visitor who shows up to get a personal phone call you as soon as they hit your site…

    You can –

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It signals you the moment they let you know they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    CLICK HERE http://www.talkwithwebvisitors.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    You’ll be amazed – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus a half-hour or more later could increase your results 100-fold.

    It gets even better… once you’ve captured their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation.

    That way, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Pretty sweet – AND effective.
