A Bit Spotted -- Kindred Stamps New Release

I have another brand-new stamp set from Kindred Stamps to show you today -- A Bit Spotted.  It's a small set (4" x 4") but has quite a few images in it.  There is also a stencil which coordinates very nicely with the set.  I used it on two of my cards.

I have a soft spot in my heart for this set because, as a kid, I had a Dalmatian named Patches.  As you probably know, Dalmatians are sometimes called Firehouse dogs.  This was during the time when many people still smoked cigarettes.   I don't know if this trait was inbred or what; but, if someone threw a cigarette onto the ground, Patches would pounce on it, as if to put out the lit portion of the cigarette.  My father's friends would throw down cigarettes on purpose, just to see Patches do his little trick!

Anyway, I have three cards to show you today -- one is simple and the other two are more interactive.  This set lends itself very nicely to a Red/White/Black color combination, and all three cards use that color combination.  The first one is a tag book card made with the Karen Burniston Circle Tag Book Pop Up die.


I used the smaller set of coordinating stickers on the inside of this card -- and the stencil on both the inside and the outside.


My second card is the clean and simple one, although I did dress it up just a little.   I masked the center of the card front, sponged the "frame" around the outside using the stencil, and then embossed with a rectangular die.  After stamping and coloring the two dogs, I matted that piece and adhered it to the center.


My final card is a waterfall card, which I made using the Karen Burniston Frame Pull Pop-Up die.  


Notice on the inside panels, I pulled out some random words from the three sentiment stamps in this set and stamped them on the left-hand panels.




There is space on the back of the card to sign your name.


I hope you like what I did with this set.  It was lots of fun and brought back some memories from my childhood!
