Jazza’s Jazzy Art Box

Hello Fellow Alchemists

Today I am sharing with you Jazza’s Jazzy Art Box. It’s taken a good while to get this puppy opened due to well, life! Yesterday ended up being the perfect opportunity when I wasn’t able to live stream on YouTube. Still not happening 😒

There are lot’s of goodies inside the box. My favourites are the pencil case and the sketchbook. Both feel like nice high quality items. I was even able to add some light watercolour to the sketchbook.

I hope you enjoyed this look at Jazza’s Jazzy Art Box. It was fun to get a look at some of Jazza’s favourite art supplies, even though we all know he prefers Copics 😉. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you’re creating your own Arty Crafty Alchemy!

DIY Specialty Cardstock

Hello Fellow Alchemists,

Today I wanted to share how I used contact to make my own specialty papers super cheaply. There is a cost breakdown at the end of the video below. I used many dies and stamps sets to make my cards so if you’re interested in cross brand card making this is the video for you!

For the first two cards I used two different Altenew sets for the sentiments and the die is from the Kaisercraft Rose stamp and die set used without stamping. Using a similar style I also made a card using the Tiger Lily Spellbinders D-Lite die. Last in this batch is a card using a Lifestyle Crafts die that I paired with some Gansai Tambi Starry Colours watercolor.

4 CAS Cards in a similar style

The next two cards use Kaisercraft dies again. The first is using the Circle Posy with a sentiment from the Inkadinkado Expressions set. My favourite card uses the Bouquet die with a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Mom + Me set.

The rainbow card is my fave

The next two cards have an ocean feel. One uses the mermaid from Kaisercraft and a spellbinders label die, the other uses a Fish from find it trading and sentiments from Kelly creates and Your Next stamp. Lastly I made a card with a balloon vellum background and sentiment dies from Crafti Potential.

I hope you enjoyed these cards using the DIY Specialty Paper, let me know your favourite below. I hope you’re creating your own arty crafty alchemy. Bye for now.

Valentine’s and Love Cards

Hello Fellow Alchemists,

Today I am sharing with you the Hedgehog Hollow December 2020 Box that has a strong Valentine’s/love theme. I ended up making two cards in the video and showed a bunch more I made at the end. You can see a previous box here and get your own box here.

For the first card I used Catherine Wheel and Storm Cloud Nuvo Shimmer Powders to make a background and then stamped the background stamp with the Clear Mark embossing pad. I then used Stampendous’ detail gold embossing powder to emboss the background and the sentiment strip with the little birdy and Love You.

Bonus Cards

The next 3 cards are only shown in the video, I used the stencil from the box with some Distress Oxide and a blender brush. I layered a watercoloured floral heart over one, and added Altenew Build Rose flowers to the other two with sentiment strips. For the other card not made in the video I used the background I did make and layered 3 sets of the LOVE die I got from the range in England.

I made a mess…

This next card was messy! I started by stamping the heart ornaments across the top and colouring them with Nuvo Coral Alcohol Markers. I then embossed My Love with black Nuvo embossing powder and the hearts with Stampendous detail gold. Here’s where things went bad… I used the Nuvo Midas Touch pen to add gold shimmer and it went everywhere! To cover the mess I used some DoCrafts Clear Dimensional Glaze to the hearts and cut an extra one to add over the mess in the corner.

I hope you enjoyed these cards using the Hedgehog Hollow December 2020 box. In the end I had fun making some of them even if I did get frustrated at my constant mistakes! Let me know your fave Below. Thanks for stopping by.
