For this months LaLa Land Hedgehog Hollow Box I went all out! This week making a total of three projects and matching them to last weeks box project. You can get your own Hedgehog Hollow box here.
Using the Marvy Uchida watercolour pencils that were sent to regular subscribers, I coloured three hedgehogs. I used mostly the brown and black pencils, using the black to darken the brown tone . To carry through the British theme through to the hedgehogs I added some red and the darker blue to the hedgehogs accessories.
I worked on my card and canvas at the same time, I applied Distress Oxide inks the same way I had for the box. I used Antique Linen, Walnut Stain and Black Soot. Wide washi tape was added to the bottom of both pieces to I could tie them in with the box too.
Next I used the LDRS Raven hybrid ink to stamp the images and sentiments. The stamps I used were Hedgehog Hollows Global Love and Sending Hedgehugs and Looking Sharp from LaLa Land Crafts. Again I used the same images of Big Ben, the bus and taxi to tie back to the box.
For the card and canvas I used foam tape behind the hedgehogs and sentiments. I turned the sentiments into banners by cutting a fish tail at one end. Under the hedgehogs little feet I used Kool Tak clear foam tape.
The envelope was the easiest piece to make as all I did was add the washi at the bottom and the third hedgehog with glue. I really hope you enjoyed this months projects using the LaLa Land Hedgehog Hollow Box. Go create some arty crafty alchemy yourselves and I’ll see you all later!
Today I am sharing with you the August 2018 LaLa Land Crafts Hedgehog Hollow Box and a Project. It’s not a card this time, I’m branching out with a decorated box. 😃 You can see one of my previous Hedgehog Hollow projects here.
Sometimes I start a project with a clear idea of that I want to make. Today I definitely had some inkling that fully formed as I went along. I knew I wanted to use the washi and the Lve stamps with the hearts. The rest was just going with the flow and seeing what happened…
The box die is the Brutus Monroe Gable box die and I added colour to it with makeup brushes and Distress Oxides. I used Antique Linen and Walnut Stain with some Black Soot around the edges. The stamping was done with LDRS hybrid ink in Raven.
All three stamp sets in the box got a workout. I used the Global Love set for the boxes short sides then added washi the long sides. The Hedgehog and Time for Tea were from the LaLa Land Looking Sharp stamp set and also the bus, Big Ben and the cab too. Lastly I used the Sending Hedgehugs set to stamp the sentiment on the tag hanging from the box.
The hedgehog I coloured with the Marvy Uchida watercolour pencils regular subscribers got. There seems to be quite a lot of pigment in these pencils and I want to play with them some more. Blending pencils together gave me an endless amount of colours though I didn’t need many.
I hope you enjoyed this week’s project and if you watched the video you would have heard what sparked the idea for this project. I hope you are creating some arty crafty alchemy yourself and I will see you next time. Bye for now.
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 🙂
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 🙂
Today we find out who won the 100 Sub Party giveaway. Following on from that is a card using Hedgehog Hollow, Waffle Flower and Pretty Pink Posh . The sequins may have thrown up everywhere.
Tow cards were made before the video using the Hedgehog Hollow Sweet die. Both the positive and negative die cuts were used so I didn’t waste any of the sparkly paper. One was coloured with copics like in the video, the only difference being that R21 and R22 were used for the cheeks and ear. The white embossing was done with Hero Arts White embossing powder.
For the mouse on the negative die cut I used the Aldi Graphic Markers. They do bleed a little on Neenah though. The sentiments on this one were done with LDRS ink from the March box and then embossed with the clear embossing powder I received in the box. The background was stamped with the Waffle Flower Sweet Ice Creams using LDRS inks from the march box and Archival inks. I used Promarkers with detail nibs to fill in the ice creams behind sweet as I didn’t think to stamp the whole panel only the edges.
For the card in the video I used copics and added some shimmer to the ice cream with a wink of Stella shimmer brush pen. The sentiments were stamped with the Nuvo Embossing pad from the box and Hero Arts white was used again. I used Clear Kool Tak foam tape to raise the mouse and sentiments. I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins to finish the card. All mice were stamped with Memento ink.
Congratz to the winners of my channels first giveaway :). Hope you all enjoyed these cards (I am in two minds, I should have used plain backgrounds with the sequins) and are enjoying some arty crafty alchemy of your own. My next box has landed in Sydney so should here next week. Plus I am super excited to share some cards I make with the Super Hero Chip Melinda sent me. Ciao for now.
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.
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.
Sorry for the late post. Between my daughters science assignment, feeling fluey and computer issues I am really behind the eight ball today lol. Hope everyone else is well! Todays video features products from The Hedgehog Hollow March 2018 LDRS box (Little Darlings Rubber Stamps). You can see a project I made with the February box here.
What I thought was going to be an easy card to make turned out to be a pain in my butt haha. I had a few errors along the way, had to edit a couple out as time was getting away from me lol. There are still a couple in there though! Mostly I just kept adding tape to the wrong places lol.
The middle bars looked a little plain to me so I decided to add the straight Lawn Fawn Meadow Border to them. It was a little higher than I’d have liked but the grass added an extra element that I really liked especially as I always feel like I need to fill everything up! Winnie, the doggy and some accessories from the stamp set Furry Fabulous out of the Hedgehog Hollow March 2018 LDRS box as well as the Flowers from the February boxes Some Bunny Lawn Fawn set were stamped with Memento ink. If you watched the video you will see why I did not use the LDRS Hybrid Ink. I used the co-ordinating dies for Furry Fabulous and Some bunny to cut my coloured pieces out.
The Copic and Promarker colours I used are:
Doggy – YR20, YR23 and Promarker O538 (Apricot) Nose – R00, R01, R02 Dog Tag – Y28.
For the flowers I used the colours above as well as – RV55, RV52, Promarker G159 (Lime Zest), YG03 and YG06
Bone – C00, C0
Hope you liked what I made with the supplies from the box. I have my thinking cap on for my next make. My new box has been sent so I best get a wriggle on lol. What’s your favourite thing from the Hedgehog Hollow boxes so far? Hope you are creating some Arty Crafty Alchemy of your own, Bye for now,
