Plumber Brothers Card Video

Hello fellow cards makers.

Today I am sharing with you two cards I made using Kindred Stamps Plumber Brothers Stamp Set. I was made aware of a few "new to me" stamp companies when I did my Instagram 1000 follower giveaway. During that giveaway I asked my Instagram followers to tell me their favorite stamp company and one of those companies was Kindred Stamps. I fell in love with their pop culture stamp sets right away. I ordered a few things that will be featured in an upcoming haul video.

Today I am playing with Plumber Brothers. This set is so cool. We are huge Nintendo fans in this house, myself being the biggest, so I had to play with this set. For the first card, I was inspired by the Nintendo packaging and wanted to create a tone on tone background using the various stamps in the set. I took a piece of Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy cardstock and stamped the images on the background using Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock. I created a similar panel using Neenah 110 lb cardstock and Hero Arts Soft Granite ink. I cut both of these panels down using the Your Next Stamp Stitched Rectangles die set (the second from largest). I arranged the white panel so that it was hanging off the card base and then popped the red panel on top of the and popped up using craft foam. I cut off the edges that were hanging off of the card.

I stamped my images with My Favorite things Extreme Black ink. This is a new Copic friendly ink. I colored them with my Copic markers. I used Scotch 3M foam tape to pop them up onto my card. I stamped the sentiment onto Lawn Fawn Black Licorice cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed it. I cut it into a strip and popped it up on my card front. To finish it off I added some gold sequins from a Neat and Tangled Mix.

For my second card using this set, I made a shaker. I took a piece of Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock and embossed the My Favorite Things Small Brick Stencil into my cardstock. I then cut it down using the Your Next Stamp Window Panel Die. I cut out the Window panel die five additional times to create my shaker pocket instead of using foam tape. I adhered all of the layers together using Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I adhered the top brick layer to a piece of acetate. I filled my shaker with Kindred Stamps Fire Shaker Mix and sealed it up using 1/8 inch double sided tape and a piece of Lawn Fawn Black Licorice cardstock. I adhered the entire panel to my card base using double sided adhesive.

I stamped my images again using My Favorite Things Extreme Black ink and colored them with my Copic markers. I adhered most of the images to my card front using liquid adhesive but I did pop up Mario with a little Scotch 3M foam adhesive. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed using Hero Arts Ultra fine white embossing powder. I stamped it on Lawn Fawn Black Licorice cardstock that I had cut down using Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Speech Bubbles. It was also popped up using foam adhesive.

I want to thank you for visiting my blog today, above are photos of my projects, and Copic color maps showing which markers I used. Below are supplies lists for each project including links. Some of the links are affiliate links but some are not.



  1. It's Mario! Your cards are adorable. I used to lay that Nintendo game back when it was a new things, but I never got past the fire pits.
