Hello, it’s Kari here today with a quick look at the new April Hedgehog Hollow Kit and a card! This kit has so many opportunities for creation, that I almost couldn’t decide what to make first! I went with a fishing theme for today…could you tell by my title?

So, check out the short video below for the preview of the kit and the process of making the card. Watch below or in HD on YouTube:

I am excited about all the adventure sentiments in this kit. There’s something for every adventurer: hiking, fishing, golfing, building (tools). There’s also plenty of Father’s Day sentiments and titles!

Here’s my card for today:

I first took a piece of BLUE cardstock and inked around the edges with an ergonomic blending brush. I think this is the easiest way to get soft color on your panel FAST. I made it darker around the edges and lighter in the middle.

Then I stamped on the Fishing silhouette image, masking off the bottom of the stamp. I used the “What a catch” sentiment to stamp in the middle and then the “Gone Fishing” on either side of that sentiment. YES, I did it: I CUT THE STAMP APART!!! EEEP! But I figure I can put it back together to stamp it like it was originally made.

Then I used the Fish stencil from the kit to add some fish on the bottom of the card panel. I used Hickory Smoke Distress Ink to make them a gray color. I finished it off with some Iridescent sequins.

I really love all the products in this kit…and look forward to making more cards! See you then!

Kari V.
