Birthday Card with a Baby Seal Digital Stamp | Handmade Birthday Card

Birthday card using a baby seal digital stampby Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez
Card made by Beata using Baby Seal digital stamp


today I bring you a very cute card made by Beata using one of the sweetest digital stamps I have. I love drawing animals and the baby seal was just waiting to be inked for along time.

She colored the image with Copic markers and use it as a primary focus on the card. The blue scalloped frame that she die cut is perfect to go with the blue ice and water.

This digital stamp has the images separately so you can use the seal and the ice separately or together. I think this image will be great for baby cards too. 

I hope you have a great weekend!

A Monstrous New Release | Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez

Dragonfox digital stamp colored
DragonFox Digital Stamp


I hope you are having a great day! I have been busy creating a little bit of this and a little bit of that. So busy with everything I hardly have time for much anymore. Well, I added a new release of 5 kinda cute monsters digital stamps. They are kinda weird but kinda cute. I don't know. I like them! What do you think?

I have a dragon with a fox tail (the fox theme was a hit that day) and goat horns? I guess you can still call it a dragon and not a monster but it's not like the average dragon either. 

I draw this one sitting at the kitchen table with my kids. They find them very cute, although they told me how to make them, I guess these are the "perfect" monsters for kids!
For this one I have a mix between a fox, a unicorn, a seal and an elephant. And the result is not as ugly as you could expected it! Who knew!

Then I have a "chicken" with fox tail and bear hears and dog face? I don't know... but he likes broccoli! Do you see how he's thinking about eating it? Maybe this little monster will help your kid to eat vegetables haha. 

Something really cute and weird is a mix between a pegasus and a giraffe with chicken feathers in his head and socks.Why socks? Because why not? He shouldn't go barefoot and boots are uncomfortable for him!

And this last one is "Squormy Wormy". As you can guess, I didn't name some of these monsters. I don't have such imagination. I think the one I named was the Pegasus-giraffe, because nobody told me different haha. I'm quite literal. But I like the name of Elefox and Squormy Wormy a lot. What can I say about Squormy wormy... he is a mix between a worm and a centipede and a fish. And the nose... oh well... you pick, it was super weird without it! 

I hope you like the new release. I think they will look great in cards for kids. They are monsters but they are not scary, and they are somehow weird. 

What's your favorite?

Have a great rest of the day!

Coloring in Kraft Cardstock | Prismacolor Coloring Chart

I'm back! I decided to continue properly with the blog instead of having it just there or just posting photos. I'll try to post from time to time, sharing things that are new, things that are "old", things that I think are interesting or maybe not so much. The thing is... I'll try to be more present in the blog world so you can keep enjoying the Kinda Cute projects that me and my team make.

Today I'm showing you a coloring I made a while ago using Prismacolor pencils in kraft cardstock. I stamped Boy and Monster using Memento desert sand for a no line coloring. The funny thing is that I had to do it several times because the ink, being so light, in this kind of cardstock fade really fast, so if you do it, try to stamp several times in the same place. The best is to use a stamping tool that lets you do that.

I colored, as I said before, with Prismacolor pencils. It's very satisfying to color with pencils in kraft cardstock because it seems that you would never get vibrant colors but since the paper already has a tone, the colors really pop a lot. The photo doesn't do the coloring justice. The yellow is just fantastic!

Here is the colors I used. I don't write the colors I use in all my colorings but since I don't usually color with pencils I thought it might be of high interest;). I hope it's helpful. Click in the photo to see it properly, for any reason it's blurry :(.
