Quick & Easy Watercolored Bookmarks - Video Tutorial

Hello Everyone, 

I’m at Hedgehog Hollow Blog  with my another project using January 2021 Subscription box. In today's post, I'm sharing couple of ways which I normally use to create water colored background for my projects. Though I have used these water colored backgrounds here for making Bookmarks but you can make these backgrounds for adding your stamped images or die cuts or simply for hand lettering.


To make these bookmarks, I took Canson Montval 200gsm Water Color paper and cut it out to a size bigger than the bookmark stamp from Coffee and Books stamp set which I've used for heat embossing. For coloring, I've used Gansai Tambi Water Colors and Water Color Brush Markers to make these bright & colorful backgrounds for my Bookmarks. Hop over to my YouTube Channel to check out step by step video tutorial..


Once I was done with coloring, I cut out the edges using a Paper trimmer and adhered these bookmarks on Kraft Card Stock to make them sturdy.


Finally I added colorful matching thread to complete these Bookmarks. I really enjoyed making these bright & colorful background for my Bookmarks. I hope you get inspired.


Don’t forget that you can share your projects on The Hedgehog Hollow Box Facebook group as well as Stamping at the Hedgehog Hollow Facebook group. We would love to see what you are creating with this wonderful box.



Thank you so much for joining me today . I’ll be back here soon.

InkyStamper Stamps - Time to Celebrate

Hello Everyone,

I'm stopping by to share this colorful Celebration card using this cute InkyStamper's stamp called Market Tote. This stamp set has cute frog image (Which I've used in a Tag here) along with other small images and one of them is a wine bottle. I didn't have any wine bottle stamp till now So when I got this stamp set... I knew that I'm gonna use this wine bottle .. he he he.. so here I'm with these wine bottles along with my imagination ;)


To start with, I took A2 size white card base and masking sheet. I marked and cut the masking sheet as shown in the below pic. Then, I adhered it on the card base and ink blended it using Distress inks.
 

For the bubbly effect, I sprinkled it with water and also added some water drops using paint brush :)..


Meanwhile, I stamped the wine bottle from 'Market Tote' stamp set using Rainbow colored Distress Oxides and die cut it out using coordinating bottle dies.


I finalized my layout and decided to add more splashes using same masking sheet. Once done with ink blending, I arranged all the die cut bottles on the card base and glued these.


I added some silver sequins for the final touch up. I hope you like it.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

You Are Amazing - CAS Card

Hello Everyone,

I'm stopping by to share this Clean & Simple card where I've created a White on White background and added a tint of rainbow colored sentiment against the White flower background. 

Clean & simple - you are amazing  handmade card

To make this card, I took white card stock and die cut out lots of flowers using Flower dies. After that I adhered these die cut out flowers on White Card base. This is the first time I've created White on White background and I really like.. how it turned out.

You are amazing handmade card

Meanwhile, I die cut out "AMAZING" sentiment on colored card stock using Alfies Dies and layered them twice to make it thick. I believe, by this time you might have realized these are one of my favorite dies to create different sentiments for my cards :)

Clean and simple card

I adhered this sentiment on the card front panel with glue along with stamped sentiment where I created "you are" sentiment by masking.

For the final touch up, I added silver rhinestone to complete this card. I hope you like this Clean & Simple card with textured background.

Thank you so much for stopping by!!

If you have not already bought this box, today is the last day to order one which you can shop Hedgehog Hollow box here. In today's post, I'm sharing this Ink smooshed rainbow card which is just perfect for a Book Lover.


To make this card, I took Water Colored card stock and ink smooshed it using rainbow colored Distress Inks. For that I have used Mustard Seed, Barn Door, Spiced Marmalade, Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, Picked Raspberry, Peacock feathers and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks.

Meanwhile, I stamped the image from One More Chapter Stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored this images using Alcohol Markers and fussy cut it.


I adhered the image using foam tape on smooshed background. Then I stamped the sentiment on white strip and fussy cut it to add interest and glue it to the card panel.


Finally I added some clear sequins to complete this card. I really had fun creating this card using my all time favorite Ink Smooshing Technique. Keep watching this place for more inspiration.

Over the Moon for you - MFT Sketch Challenge

Hello Everyone,

I'm stopping by to share this quick post where I've used MFT BB Space Explorer stamp set. This card  is inspired by their current Sketch challenge. The special thing about this card is that the images in this card are colored by my 8 year old. She always complained that I don't use her colored images on my cards..So here it is... Not only she has colored but fussy cut it too for Mama... And she did a great job.. What you guys think... Isn't she good?

Over to my card..


For the background, I took my rough card stock which I always keep down while I do inking for my background or images. It makes beautiful galaxy background. Don't to think it's a good idea..;).. Then I cut this card stock as per the layout and splattered it with white acrylic paint and adhered it on the card panel. Here is the pic of my rough card stock..:)


After that I stamped the sentiment on white paper strip and adhered it using foam tape. I added the images which was colored and fussy cut by my little girl.


Finished it by adding some Silver Star embellishment.


I hope you like it. Thank you for stopping by!!

I've also made an Interactive card few months back using the same stamp set which you can see here .

Stenciling with Glitter Paste - Hello Beautiful

Hello Everyone,

I'm stopping by to share this super glittery stenciled Birthday card using Crealies Silver Glitter paste with Tubby Craft new Stencil. I really like the effect of Glitter paste over ink blended background. 


To make this card, I ink blended white card stock using tubby craft inks. I have used Raspberry, Magenta, Sapphire Blue and Turquoise colors. Then, I stenciled it with Tubby Craft Foliage 1 using sliver glitter paste.


Once it dried, I stamped the Butterfly on vellum and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. Fussy cut it and adhered the same on stenciled background along with die cut sentiments where "Hello" dies are from SSS and "Beautiful" dies are from STAMplorations.

Here is the close up... Isn't this texture is looking beautiful? ;)


I really like how this card turned out. I hope you like it too.
