This month, I worked with “Perfect Match,” a fun set featuring our Kindred folk as tennis players. I used various different techniques to create a collection of cards.

For the first card I created a rainbow strip using color burst powders and stamped it with the tennis ball from the set. The tennis player was colored with Copics. The sentiment is from “Slam Dunk” which is a basketball set.

Next I tried a design with no coloring. I saw this blend of colors for the background by Debbie Hughes and had to try it. I tried to let the round tennis ball be a theme. This was an experimental card and I was really happy with how it turned out. I stamped the tennis balls on the background with white ink but they didn’t show up as bright as I’d hoped so I went over them with a white gel pen and added the stitches with the white also. The tennis players were heat embossed and then die cut. I added the clay tennis balls for a pop of color.

I decided to switch it up a bit and make a slim line card. This card uses Comic Dots stencil from Kindred. I used the bottom half of the stencil and matched it up to get repeat the pattern across the card. I used Contour Ink to no-line color these cuties. The shaker is filled with clay tennis balls now available at Kindred.

Lastly, I made a birthday card. I used the “Love word die” and “Hugs and Kisses” Shaker Pack.
