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.
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.
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.
Today I am sharing a huge haul from a lady in a craft group I just recently started going to. Huge may be an understatement lol. The first time I met this lady was only two weeks before she gave me all these pretty things! Feeling very blessed 🙂 Thank you so much Caroline!
From embellishments to papers this gift had it all! My favourite embellishments were the cute lil shaker bunnies and the cut apart laser cut baby piece from Plaid. The Paper Pizazz Verses 2 was also a fave and I can’t wait to find some projects to use them on.
Where do I start with those papers. Of course the Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary has me swooning. There are only a few G45 stacks in my stash unfortunately. KaiserCraft is always a winner too 🙂 The rose paper with the silver? How have I never seen this before? Wow! Almost forgot about the vintage papers, from the baby ones to the old photos and sketched Pooh. Love Love Love. Oh and I have always been partial to K & Company. There are a few stacks in my stash.
On a side note I have most of my 12″ paper sorted by colour. This is not working for me. My feeling is except for the paper basics like spots, checks and plainer papers I need to organise them back into brands and series and then maybe alphabetise them as it helps keep co-ordinating pieces together. Most of my newer KaiserCraft stacks are stored like this in 12″ project folders. However I have too much paper to do this with all of it… “Blush.” Honestly I feel very daunted when I have to go find something in my paper stash at the moment 🙁 How do you store your 12″ papers? Got any Tips?
Hope you are doing some arty crafty alchemy of your own
