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!

  • 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.

  • Good day,

    My name is Eric and unlike a lot of emails you might get, I wanted to instead provide you with a word of encouragement – Congratulations

    What for?

    Part of my job is to check out websites and the work you’ve done with greetingsa2z.com definitely stands out.

    It’s clear you took building a website seriously and made a real investment of time and resources into making it top quality.

    There is, however, a catch… more accurately, a question…

    So when someone like me happens to find your site – maybe at the top of the search results (nice job BTW) or just through a random link, how do you know?

    More importantly, how do you make a connection with that person?

    Studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors don’t stick around – they’re there one second and then gone with the wind.

    Here’s a way to create INSTANT engagement that you may not have known about…

    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 lets you know INSTANTLY that they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally checking out greetingsa2z.com.

    It could be a game-changer for your business – and 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 – immediately (and there’s literally a 100X difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes.)

    Plus then, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can connect later on with text messages for new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to build a relationship.

    Everything I’ve just described is simple, easy, and effective.
