Make your own kind of music

This month’s Hedgehog Hollow subscription box is full of so much fun. If you have not seen it, it is a musical theme. For today’s post, I have created two cards. Both cards feature one of the foilable ephemera from the Instrumental Elements.

For this card, I used a rainbow foil scrap, on the Grand Piano Element and ran it through my laminator. Next, I pretreated my white card panel with an antistatic tool. Then, I took the large musical word sentiment from Make Your Own Kind of Music Stamp Set. I stamped it on my white card panel with Color Hive Clear Embossing Ink. I covered the sticky ink with white embossing powder and heat set it. Using red, yellow and blue ink from my stash, I blended the colors over the image to create a rainbow. Then, I used a clean, dry towel to wipe off any excess ink off the embossed area.

I stamped the sentiment from the same set with red ink and used a circle die to cut it out. I also used a slightly bigger circle die to cut out a mat for the mat under my sentiment. Using, liquid glue to attached the foiled piano and the sentiment to the front of my card. Next, I cut my panel down to about 4″ x 5.25.” To finish off my card, I cut a red mat to 4.25″ x 5.5.” I attached it and my card panel to the front of my white A2 cardbase.

Music is a piece of art…

For card #2 today, I made a relatively one layer card. I started by foiling the musical heart with a red foil from Thermoweb. This is an element also from the Instrumental Elements Ephemera pack. Next, I used black ink on the sentiment from Music Speaks at the bottom of my white A2 card base using my Misti. To stamp the heartbeat/music line; I lined up the foiled heart where I wanted it for placement and stamped the image also in black ink. To finish off my card, I used some foam tape to adhere the the foiled heart directly over the heartbeat/music image.
