Hello everyone! I’m really excited to be back on the Hedgehog Hollow blog again so soon! I hope you’re all having a great week so far!
I am loving this card I made using Pink and Main’s Happy Fall stamp and die set! It is so simple, but yet so elegant! I love the idea of taking a non-traditional Fall color and using it to make a card that really stands out!
Plus, I used a few of Maker Forte’s newest gems: Kaleidoscope Powder – Interference – Nebula and Easy Watercolors by Hedgehog Hollow. The Kaleidoscope Powder is also in the October Subscription Box!
To make this card, I’m starting with the Kaleidoscope Powder – Interference – Nebula and a water brush. Putting a small puddle of water on my workspace, I am mixing in a bit of the powder. Using my water brush, I can mix it into a watercolor medium.
On a piece of watercolor cardstock, I am taking the largest of the Easy Watercolors by Hedgehog Hollow stamps and am brushing on my watercolor mixture straight onto my clear stamp. Once it’s completely covered, I can stamp the image. I am going to repeat this process twice to get a better coverage.
After waiting for that to dry, I am placing some leaf stamps from the Pink and Main’s Happy Fall stamp set on top of my watercolor. I am using the Color Hive Clear Embossing Glue Ink Pad to create a sticky image of the leaves. Then, I can apply my gold embossing powder to my images and melt it with my heat tool.
I’m ready to go ahead and stamp my adorable bear from the Pink and Main’s Happy Fall stamp set! (This bear is definitely the cutest bear EVER!) I am going to stamp him with Hero Arts Intensified Black ink and color him with Copic markers.
I cut my watercolor cardstock down to 3.75″ x 5″. Behind that, I’m layering a piece of black cardstock and a piece of gold cardstock.
The last thing I need to do is create my sentiment! I am using the same gold cardstock as I used for my base and cutting out the “Happy Fall” banner from the Pink and Main Blessings Slimline Die. I saved the little insides of the A’s and P’s to glue in after I get my sentiment down!
Next, I am ready to glue everything down and use 3D foam squares to adhere my bear!
