G’day G’day, it’s been a while lol. Lots has been going on behind the scenes! This week I am bringing you projects featuring a stencil from Melinda at Scrapbookingncraft. I even share a discount code in the video! Here is a link to a previous Halloween Collab I did with Melinda.
Melinda sent me the lovely stencil Shattered Circle to use this month so I based my project around that. My first couple of attempts didn’t quite turn out the way I hoped so I kept practicing!
with this first card I used Picked Raspberries and salty Ocean Distress inks with Nuvo Sparkle paste over the top. I used the MFT Radiating Dots stamp in the background with Spun Sugar ink.
The sentiment is chipboard also from Scrapbookingncraft covered in spun sugar oxide and wink of Stella then clear embossed three times.
There be dragons
To switch it up for the video I swapped to Squeezed Lemonade and Barn Door Distress Ink. These two didn’t quite work the way I’d hoped but they still look nice together. This time I used BoBunny glitter paste.
Both the Dragon and the Hello Friend are again chipboard from Melinda. I wished up this time and used Squeezed Lemonade and Barn Door Distress paints to colour them. To these I added three layers of clear sparkle embossing powder for that nice shiny dimensional look. The sentiment strip accross the Dragon is a Spellbinders Glimmer plate from Sentiments II.
I hope you enjoyed this look at the new stencil from Scrapbookingncraft. If you did head over to Melinda’s website with the discount code from the video and check out some of the cool items in the shop. Hope you are creating your own arty crafty alchemy. Bye for now.
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 with you Papercraft Essentials Issue 181 and making a few projects mostly with the 3D embossing folder. This is the first 3D embossing folder in my stash!
I really like this 3D embossing folders versatility from Papercraft Essentials Issue 181 because the embossed side looks like gems and the debossed side looks like honeycomb. The honeycomb side made a great backdrop to the Elizabeth Crafts Buzzin’ Around stamps and dies. With a little Wild Honey Distress Oxide and some sparkly silver vellum the cards was complete.
The next two cards I ran with the Geo theme and used Tim Holtz’ Geo Springtime Butterfly die cuts for one card, blending out some more oxides in the background. Then I used Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet as my colours of choice and Happy Mother’s Day was heat embossed in white finished this card off. The next card has a background of Candied Apple Oxide and some Poppy Crafts Hexagons. The Hedgehog Hollows Finding Your Way Heart is stamped and embossed with Glacier White Nuvo detail embossing powder. The sentiment is from Honey Bee Stamps
The last card showcases both the Geo stamps and 3D embossing folder from Papercraft Essentials Issue 181. The fox was stamped with memento, Coloured with Copics in YR21 YR24 and YR27, then fussy cut out. The vellum looked so pretty as the bee wings that I decided to use a pale blue piece as the backdrop over the 3D embossing folder. I stacked a hello die cut and stamped foxy lady on a banner to finish off the card.
I hope you enjoyed this look at Papercraft Essentials Issue 181. But my one criticism is that my embossing folder has almost split at the crease as a result of running it through the Cuttlebug a couple of times. Some box tape should sort that out because I really want to use it more! Let me know below which is you favourite card bellow. Thanks for stopping by.
