Another AAA Giveaway & Technique Video!

Howdy folks, I have another stamp set to give away from About Art Accents, it is the Kokopelli word, image and two border stamps, wow! All on beautiful deeply etched red rubber. You can see all 4 stamps you get on the card:

DCF 1.0

I don’t often use Native American or Southwestern imagery in my art but I really enjoyed playing with these stamps. Kokopelli is a fertility symbol apparently…uh, I guess I won’t be using that stamp too often, I don’t want to tempt fate LOL! The last time I was pregnant I had twins! Here is a video showing you how I made the tags. The clay embellishment video is in yesterday’s post.

Another technique I wanted to mention is to get a stone look on the main image of the card I stamped just like I did on the video but then I ran it through my Big Shot with a grungy abstract looking embossing folder and swiped it with ink. I used glossy paper because when I tried it on regular cardstock the image did not stand out as much as i wanted.

DCF 1.0

Another tip I have is to save the white and cream cardstock strips that you get when you trim down paper, they are great for stamping boarders for cards or sentiments! Well that’s it for today. If you want a chance to win the kokopelli stamps from About Art Accents just leave a comment, I’ll draw a name next week! Just be sure to use the stamp with caution or the next cards you’ll be making will be birth announcements LOL! šŸ˜€ Good luck and happy crafting!

  1. Not worried about the fertility aspect of this stamp!

    Nice job coordinating the embossing folders to the stamp.
    It would be a nice card to send to a guy who is celebrating a birthday.

  2. I LOVE all the texture you got into the card. You pulled all the elements together beautifully. I’m not currently married or dating so I think I can risk using Kokopelli. (hehehe you know you’re going to get a lot of bad jokes, but you started it!)

  6. I lived in the Southwest for three army tours at El Paso, loved to go out to look at the rock paintings. I have had a life long interest in the Native Americans and have a lot of paintings and prints from the southwest as well as a fireplace that looks like an adobe oven. Virginians think the decor is strange but colonial is not my style. Now I have Native American plus Oriental art.Just call it eclectic. LOL

  12. Funnily enough yesterday I was watching a documentary on ancient world art and there was a little segment on the flute player Kokopelli, I was excited because that image has always appealed to me and I have a tiny piece of art that I bought at a craft market a while ago where someone drew a kokepelli with a glue gun right in front of me with coloured glue sticks. I liked how he did it and the image that he created so much that I bought it – I only found out years later that it was a venerated native American fertility symbol. So of course your post today totally caught my attention. This is a stamp set that I must really look into getting.

  27. Lindsay – you posted a comment on my vintage gold post and I dont know how but I managed to hit reject instead of publish – so I am just writing to let you know that I didnt mean to delete your comment, I did read it it and I was so grateful for the positive feedback. I was trying to see if I could reverse the reject command but I cant work it out. Sorry about my early morning brain freeze there. So to sum everything up, thank you for the lovely comment and I am so sorry that I accidentally rejected it.
