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.
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.
