Hi there! Jen S here today sharing a few cards using the July Hedgehog Hollow box.

The minute I saw the reveal for this kit, I knew exactly what I was going to do with the items….Neon! I love the whole retro feel of the stamps and stencils!
I started the card with a piece of Hammermill cardstock and the 50s Wallpaper stencil. I wanted to fit as much of the stencil on my 4 ¼ x 5 ½ card panel, so I placed the stencil in a horizontal direction.
Next, using a blending brush, I blended Catherine Pooler ink in the color Lemongrass.
I realized that some of the stamps from the Atomic Age stamp set match almost perfectly with some of the stencil features. To take advantage of this cool feature, I inked up these stamps in the color Roller Skates and then stamped the images over the stenciled cardstock.
Then, using another stamp from the Atomic Age stamp set, I inked up the solid stamp in Clear embossing ink. I took the Outrageous Orange Kaleidoscope Powder* and applied this to the embossing ink using the dual tip powder brush. I do this by dipping the powder brush into the powder, tapping off the excess and then applying a pouncing motion to cover the area. The excess powder is removed using the Rainbow Clean Up brush*. To set the powder, I sprayed the image with some hairspray (but I hear that water works too!) The corresponding outline stamp was inked up in Versafine Black ink and the image was fussy cut out.
The sentiment for this card is from the Roadside Attractions stamp set. I stamped it in Versafine Black ink and then fussy cut the sentiment and the marquee lights and arranged these on the card panel.
To complete the card, a rectangle stitched frame die was used to create a frame with white cardstock. All of the elements were then adhered to the card panel. As a finishing touch, neon Liquid Pearls were added using the colors Lightening, Outrageous and Shocking.
A second card was creating by placing the stencil on the cardstock, blending the inks through it and then moving the stencil over slightly. This gives the card somewhat of a layered look.
The final card was created by stamping up several images onto watercolor cardstock and embossing in gold embossing powder. Dimension was added by using texture paste through the stencil. Next, the panel was spritzed with water and several drops of the Roller Skates re-inker was used to add color. Lots of splatter was added using the leftover ink as well as gold watercolor.
That’s it for me today, thanks for stopping by!
