Kindred Stamps New Release - Arabian Nights

Today I've got three cards made with another brand-new, soon-to-be-released stamp set from Kindred Stamps called Arabian Nights.  I'm sure there are lots of people who would like to have a genie grant them three wishes or who would love to ride on a magic flying carpet.  If you're one of those people, this is the set for you!

My three cards are representative of three different styles of card-making:  clean and simple; more involved; and, finally, interactive.  Whatever your style, this set would work for you.  My first card, while it has three layers, is still rather clean and simple.

I embossed the frame around the edge to give a bit more texture.  And I love the play on words in the sentiment -- I "sultan-ly" do!

My second card is a little more involved.

I cut the flying carpet from a scrap of old Basic Grey patterned paper (it pays to save those scraps) and backed it with the yellow.  The tassels are from a package of tasseled ribbon I found at Hobby Lobby -- all magic carpets have tassels on the corners.

And my third card is the interactive one -- made with a Karen Burniston Spinner Square Pop-Up die.

The front is pretty plain, although the cut-out window adds some interest; but all the action is on the inside.  There's that genie ready to grant your three wishes!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you enjoyed my cards.  The entire Kindred Stamps March release will be available Friday, March 22nd at 8am PST/11am EST.  Be sure to check out the Kindred Stamps blog on Friday for the full product release as well as the complete line up of all the Kindred Stamps Design Team projects from release week!  If you visit and comment on all of the designers' blogs this week, you could win $15 in Kindred Stamps shop credit!  So join the Fan Club and release event, show the design team some love, and get ready to empty those wallets this Friday!
