Plumber Brothers Card Video

Hello fellow cards makers.

Today I am sharing with you two cards I made using Kindred Stamps Plumber Brothers Stamp Set. I was made aware of a few "new to me" stamp companies when I did my Instagram 1000 follower giveaway. During that giveaway I asked my Instagram followers to tell me their favorite stamp company and one of those companies was Kindred Stamps. I fell in love with their pop culture stamp sets right away. I ordered a few things that will be featured in an upcoming haul video.

Today I am playing with Plumber Brothers. This set is so cool. We are huge Nintendo fans in this house, myself being the biggest, so I had to play with this set. For the first card, I was inspired by the Nintendo packaging and wanted to create a tone on tone background using the various stamps in the set. I took a piece of Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy cardstock and stamped the images on the background using Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock. I created a similar panel using Neenah 110 lb cardstock and Hero Arts Soft Granite ink. I cut both of these panels down using the Your Next Stamp Stitched Rectangles die set (the second from largest). I arranged the white panel so that it was hanging off the card base and then popped the red panel on top of the and popped up using craft foam. I cut off the edges that were hanging off of the card.

I stamped my images with My Favorite things Extreme Black ink. This is a new Copic friendly ink. I colored them with my Copic markers. I used Scotch 3M foam tape to pop them up onto my card. I stamped the sentiment onto Lawn Fawn Black Licorice cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed it. I cut it into a strip and popped it up on my card front. To finish it off I added some gold sequins from a Neat and Tangled Mix.

For my second card using this set, I made a shaker. I took a piece of Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock and embossed the My Favorite Things Small Brick Stencil into my cardstock. I then cut it down using the Your Next Stamp Window Panel Die. I cut out the Window panel die five additional times to create my shaker pocket instead of using foam tape. I adhered all of the layers together using Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I adhered the top brick layer to a piece of acetate. I filled my shaker with Kindred Stamps Fire Shaker Mix and sealed it up using 1/8 inch double sided tape and a piece of Lawn Fawn Black Licorice cardstock. I adhered the entire panel to my card base using double sided adhesive.

I stamped my images again using My Favorite Things Extreme Black ink and colored them with my Copic markers. I adhered most of the images to my card front using liquid adhesive but I did pop up Mario with a little Scotch 3M foam adhesive. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed using Hero Arts Ultra fine white embossing powder. I stamped it on Lawn Fawn Black Licorice cardstock that I had cut down using Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Speech Bubbles. It was also popped up using foam adhesive.

My mom would come downstairs and tell us to turn the music down. She had nightmares of one ups. The music elicits great memories from over 30 years ago. The fire card is amazing!!!
