Rainbow Card Using The July Hedgehog Hollow Sunny Studios Box

Hello fellow Alchemists,

Today I am sharing with you a Rainbow Card using the July Hedgehog Hollow Sunny Studios Box. You can see my unboxing here and the first card I made with it here. I love the paper Sunny Studios gave us in this box! Pretty pretty rainbows ūüôā

Starting with my usual Kmart card base and cut one panel on the long side with the stitched ric rac border die from the Sunny Studios Ric Rac Border Dies. Taking the ric rac die, I cut six different colours of the Rainbow Bright paper that came in the box. Then using the 6 pieces of ric rac to create a rainbow above where I die cut the card base and adhered them with Helmar glue.

I  then took the Rainbow Text Die and cut it five times with black cardstock that had one side covered with Crafts 4 U double sided tape. Layering these up gives dimension. The sentiment is from the Over the Rainbow stamp set from the box and stamped with the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform with Archival Ink. With the stamped element in place I added the dimensional rainbow word.

 

Next I used a bunch of sequins to decorate the card. I used some I purchased from Ali Express and some from Darice. These were glued down with Lawn Fawndamentals glue. Finally for a little more shine I decided to add some Glossy Accents to the stacked rainbow word.

It was fun to create this¬†Rainbow Card using The July Hedgehog Hollow Sunny Studios box.¬† Be sure to check out my 250 Sub Party video so you don’t miss out! Hope you are creating your own arty crafty alchemy, bye for now.

July Hedgehog Hollow Sunny Studios Card feat Coastal Cuties

Hello fellow Alchemists,

Today I’m sharing a card made with the July Hedgehog Hollow Sunny Studios box. Of course if you watch the video you will see I did things the hard way 😂 You can buy a box here and see my unboxing here.

Firstly I used the Ric Rac Border Dies to cut two pieces of ric rac in both blues, the teal and the white grey. Then I grabbed my Distress Oxide in Salty Ocean and Antique Linen along with some cheap makeup brushes. I then created some sand with the Antique Linen and sky with the Salty ocean. The sand wasn’t getting dark enough for me so I grabbed a blending tool to add a darker layer. To create clouds in the sky I used some paper towel and water.

Things got crazy with the water when I changed my mind how it was going to look mid way ☺ I decided to use a piece leftover from cutting the ric rac as my horizon and then worked from there. Alternating colours and using the grey as whitewash and breaking waves.

 

The cuties were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on my Stamp Platform and then coloured with Copics.

Water droplets and goggles glass – BG11

Swimmers and hat ribbon – B66 and B69

Bucket and floater ring – R35 and R46

Hat and Starfish – E31, E33 and E35

Hair and Starfish – E59, E57 and E55

Skin – E0000, E000, E00 Mouth R46 and C7 Cheeks R11

I fussy cut the girls out and adhered them to the card. I used stippling with the Copics to give the sand texture and added some Starfish that I coloured with Copics. The Starfish and sentiment came from the Hampton Arts Make a Splash stamp set. Finally I added some water droplets from Coastal Cuties around the sentiment, adding in some BG11 Copic

I hope you enjoyed the card I made with the July Hedgehog Hollow Sunny Studios box.  Hope you are creating some arty crafty alchemy yourselves, by for now.

Man’s Shirt Card feat Junes Hedgehog Hollow Box

 Hello fellow alchemists,

Todays card¬† is a Man’s Shirt Card feat Junes Hedgehog Hollow Box. There are still a couple of previous boxes on the Hedgehog Hollow website. You can see the new July box here as well as some lolly taste testing. challenging myself I stuck to items mostly from the June box. Apart from ink (there was none in this box) and buttons, I succeeded.

The brown patterned paper in the box threw me off, however I¬† used it as the basis for the card. The paper reminds me of the 70’s lol. Turning over the top corner of the paper created a collar. After die cutting the pocket from the paper I stamped it with Sepia Archival ink using the Hedgehog Hollow Denim Pocket stamp set.

Cutting a slit in the paper from the bottom to under the collar let me add in an accent piece.  Mimicking piping that matched the folded over collar using a scrap piece of the patterned paper. Hunting through my buttons I found three thought were  perfect for the shirt.

After cutting the Hand Lettered Dad die from cardstock with double sided adhesive on one side three times I layered them together. Then I covered the die cut stack with the Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Pad and sprinkled with Copper Blush embossing powder.

The skin was coloured on Neenah Solar White with Copics. The buttons are stuck down with Helmar glue after adding some brown Hampton Arts twine to them. After a battle stamping the extra sentiments from the HH Masculine sentiments I made a sentiment strip to finish the card.

I hope you enjoyed todays¬†Man’s Shirt Card¬†feat Junes Hedgehog Hollow Box. Leave me a comment below letting me know how I did with my challenge. Hope you are enjoying some arty¬†crafty alchemy yourselves.

Hedgehog Hollow Card Using All Four Boxes

Hello fellow Alchemists,

Today I am making a Hedgehog Hollow Card Using All Four Boxes. I did not start out by planning it this way but as I was going through the boxes it organically happened. I did cut a lot of the footage of me flipping through the boxes and choosing papers to save time lol. Luckily all the flowers were already cut out so that saved me a tonne  of time!

Knowing I was going to use the Hedgehog Hollow Pocket stamps and dies I planned accordingly, finding two papers that looked good together. Hunting through my as yet unsorted ink pad swatches I found a colour that closely matched the papers. At first I was concerned the Milled Lavender Distress ink was too pale. The Tim Holtz stamp platform helped me get around this by allowing me to repeatedly stamp the images on top of themselves, building up the colour.

I die cut the Sweet word die three times on white cardstock backed with Crafts 4 U wide double sided adhesive tape.  Layering them up and covering them with Milled Lavender and clear Wink of Stella. The stamped and cut pocket was adhered with foam tape to raise it up.

After quickly shaping a bunch of the precut Lawn Fawn Spring Sprig flowers I adhered them with Helmar glue. After sticking the layered up sweet to the pocket I added some more flowers. Then I added more bling to a card than I ever have before!

Here  are the cards I helped my little friend make.

A little crooked but not bad for a 4 year old. The next one uses chipboard from a previous haul that you can get here.

What did you think of my¬†Hedgehog Hollow Card Using All Four Boxes? It didn’t go quite the way it was envisioned,¬†card making is like that though… Hope you are all creating some arty¬†crafty alchemy of your own. See you next time ūüôā

Hedgehog Hollow Waffle Flower May 2018 Box Slider Card

Hello fellow Alchemists,

Today card is a Lawn Fawn slider card with this months Hedgehog Hollow Waffle Flower May 2018 Box. Throw in a DCWV Rainbow Splash paper stack and the Lawn Fawn Magic Slider dies and we are good to go! You can see me unboxing this months box here and you can get it here.

Trying to be more organised when I film, so I precut everything I needed and actually had everything for a change. There is a missing stamp about though! The Copics and Promarkers were even picked before filming, though I did need to find some more. Stamping on cardstock was done with alcohol marker friendly Memento and on the acetate with Stazon.

The Waffle Flower Sweet Ice Cream and Hedgehog Hollow Sweet Sentiments stamp sets were both used. Copics and Promarkers (see below) were used to colour. To create the mask I used a piece of paper, some fussy cutting and some Zig Two Way glue. Most of the colouring used two colour blends.

Ice Cream Combos – Promarker V735 and Copic C5, Promarkers G267 and G356, Copic B24 and Promarker B637, Copic R85 and R83, Copic E53 and E51, Copic E79 and E77, Copic R24 and R27 and some Glitz Sea marker Southern Ocean.

Mouse – Shirt – Copic YR18 and YR16 Bow Tie (cause bow ties are cool) – Promarker B637 and Copic B24 Mouse – Copic W5, W3 and W1 Cheeks and Ear – Copic R23 and R21.

Background – Ground – Copic C5, C3 and C1 Ground – Copic B00, B000, B0000.

That’s a lot of colours! If you watched to the end of the video you saw as well as using the Hedgehog Hollow Waffle Flower May 2018 Box I also showed how to use stamps from this previous box and talked about how you could case your stash to get similar results :). I Hope you enjoyed this video and are doing some arty crafty alchemy yourself. Bye for now.
