Building Blocks with Spaceship Paneling and Wreath Stamping

Hey Kindred Stampers! It's Tanya again, back with a couple of techniques to play with. This post is for everyone that has spent hours in creative play with building blocks!

The Building Blocks stamp set was just begging to be stamped in a wreath pattern. There are templates you can buy, and you can create your own with some cardstock and a square die.

So I started this card by stamping the various blocks using my homemade wreath builder template on a 4" square of white cardstock. Then I colored the blocks with Copic Markers.

  • Red: R05, R24, R46
  • Orange: YR15, YR16, YR09
  • Yellow: Y02, Y06, Y08
  • Pink: RV02, RV04, RV09

Next the block wreath was cut with a stitched circle die, and at the same time I cut a coaster circle with the same die to add dimension. I glued these together.

The next step was to create the background with the Spaceship Panels stencil and Distress Inks.

The first layer is a blend of Squeezed Lemonade, Ripe Persimmon, and Candied Apple.

Then the stencil was applied and the background was inked again with the same colors. Except I swapped Mustard Seed for the Squeezed Lemonade. I just wasn't getting the contrast that I wanted until I switched to the darker yellow.

This was then die cut with a stitched rectangle die.

For the sentiment strip, I inked up a scrap of paper with Squeezed Lemonade and Ripe Persimmon and flicked some water on it. 

The sentiment was stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black, then trimmed out with my paper trimmer. I used a scissor to create the slanted ends.

That's it! I think the coloring took the longest, but even that was pretty quick. I put this together after work and before bed one night. I generally have about 2 hours to cook, eat, shower, and wind down after work. So this really did come together fast!

Now, go forth and create! Be sure to share your creations on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest using the hashtag #kindredstamps so we can all see what you have made!
