Nativity Stamp | 3D Pop-Up Card | Hedgehog Hollow Guest Design

Nativity Scene

 

Hey crafty friends! This is Donna from Creative Pixie Designs and I am so excited to share my second post as a guest designer for The Hedgehog Hollow using the November 2020 kit.

I wanted to make a scene card using all of the images from the Nativity Stamp and thought that a 3D Pop-Up Card was a perfect choice.

To begin the card, I created an A7 card base out of black card stock. I cut the card stock down to 7” by 10”, then scored it at 5”. To create the pop-up element, I took the left-over strip of cardstock and trimmed it down to 1 ½” by 7, then scored the piece at 3/8”, 5/8” and 1 1/8”. This will make more sense in the video.

 

Nativity Scene

 

After attaching the pop-up element, I created the Nativity scene. I ink blended a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock with Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot. Once the panel was dry, I spritzed the panel with water and blotted it dry. Then I added white splatters to create stars and create a ton of texture. I created a second piece of ink blended panel for the ground by ink blending Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain. And finally, I die cut the panel with Kinetic Waves Die Set by Whimsy Stamps.

Collected Crafty Collabs November Hop | Whimsy Stamps Holly Jolly My Butt

Santa Clause

 

Hi crafty friends, it’s that wonderful time of the month where a group of crafty friends comes together to share projects made using crafty supplies we’ve squirreled away. Yes, it’s the Collected Crafty Collabs hop for November. And this month we are making Christmas inspired card with optional texture pastes or mousse.

For my card, I chose a grumpy Santa with an appropriate sentiment to reflect his mood. For some of us, as we get closer and closer to Christmas, we begin to feel like this guy.

I stamped the images onto Neenah Solar white 80lb. cardstock with Memento ink and used my Copic Markers to color in the images.

Dog: E47, E44, E43, N7, N5, N3
Collar: R27, R25, 110
Tree: G28, YG17, YG03, YG01

I ink blended a panel of smooth cardstock with Distress Oxide ink in Blueprint Sketch, spritzed the panel with water, and added splatters. Once the panel was dry, I used the Twinkle Stencil and Therm O’ Web’s Glitz Glitter Gel to add a ton of sparkle to the background.

I adhered the tree directly to the background, added foam adhesive to the focal point image, and die cut the sentiment from red and white cardstock then adhered it with foam adhesive to the card.

It may not be the jolliest Christmas card, but undoubtedly it will come in handy this year!

Whimsy Stamps Happy Feet | Hello Winter Card

Good morning crafty friends! I have a new winter card to share with you featuring the newly released Happy Feet clear stamp set by Whimsy Stamps.

Here in Florida, the weather is still in the high 70’s but these adorable guys are enjoying much more cold weather in this winter scene card.

I started the card by creating the background first. Using Peacock Feathers, Broken China, and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxides, I ink blended a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock. Next, I spritzed the panel with water and blotted it dry, then I created splatters of diluted white acrylic paint and Peacock Feathers.

All of the images are stamped onto Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock then colored with Copic Markers.

Once the coloring was complete, I used my ScanNCut to cut the images out. To complete the scene, I die cut several trees from the Forest Majesty Die Set, and a snowy hill from the Kinetic Straight Waves Die Set.

I adhered all of the elements to a side folding A2 sized card base, adhered the images with foam squares, and finished the card with a heat embossed sentiment.

As always thank you so much for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Whimsy Stamps Snowy Water Mill | Ink Blending Backgrounds

Snowy Water Mill

Good morning crafty friends, I have a very serene card to share with you today featuring the newly released Snowy Water Mill Rubber Cling Stamp by Whimsy Stamps.

This is a gorgeous rubber stamp designed by DoveArt Studios for Whimsy Stamps. I happen to be a huge fan of scenery stamps and all of the ones designed by DoveArt are just beyond stunning.

I began the card by ink blending a panel of Bristol smooth cardstock in Tumbled Glass, Shaded Lilac, and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide inks.

Once the panel was completely dry, I stamped the image using VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with black embossing powder.

Using a stitched rectangle die, I die cut the panel down to 3 ½” by 4 ¾”. I added foam tape to the back of the panel for dimension before adhering it onto a piece of black cardstock. I opted not to add a sentiment on the card but I can easily add the sentiment for any occasion.

A simple ink blended panel, embossing powder, and your card is all done. I hope you enjoy seeing something a little different as always thank you so much for stopping by until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Hanukkah Sameach | The Joyous Festival | Hedgehog Hollow Guest Design

Menorah

Hey crafty friends! I am thrilled to be guest designing for The Hedgehog Hollow using the November 2020 kit. The November Box is packed full of goodies relating to the upcoming holiday season!

As luck would have it, this month the kit includes a Hannukah stamp set, which I have been looking to add to my collection for a while.  I begin with a Hannukah inspired card and combined it with the beautiful pattern paper.

 

Menorah

Using a stitched A2 sized rectangle die, I die cut the snowflake pattern paper. Next, I wanted to create a focal panel and add the stamped image. I debated on the background and settled on a blue inked background to match the pattern paper.

I began with a piece of powder blue cardstock cut down to 3” by 4.25” and ink blended the panel using Hero Arts’ Dusty Blue, Catherine Pooler’s Something Borrowed, and Distress Ink in Chipped Sapphire. It took some effort to build up the ink layers, but I love the end result.

Once the panel was completely dry, I stamped the Menorah using VersaMark ink and added silver embossing powder. I added a little sparkle to the Menorah with a sparkle gel pen. Of course, I had to add some splatters to the front panel and finished this card by adding the panel with foam adhesive to the background.

Menorah

 

I will be back later in the month to share another fun project using the contents of the November kit. As always thank you so much for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Using Pattern Paper on Cards | Whimsy Stamps Magical Winter

snowman

 

Hey crafty friends! It is beginning to look like Christmas. Today’s card is a fun Christmas inspired card featuring pattern paper.

My most favorite color combination for Christmas cards is the teal and red combo. When I saw these pattern papers from the newly released Blurry Flurries Paper Pack, I knew that the paper would be perfect to create this easy card.

Looking through the collection, this teal pattern paper that fades into white caught my eye. It was a perfect background for this little snowman from the Magical Winter Clear Stamp.

The Snowman image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock and colored with Copic Markers.

Red: R39, R27, R24, R22
Carrot: YR18, YR15, Y38

I die-cut a frame from red cardstock, and finished the card by white heat embossing the sentiment onto red cardstock.

Undoubtedly, this is an easy card to create because the pattern paper creates the background. Adding a frame element and an image completes this card in a flash.

I hope you enjoyed this card, as always thank you so much for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Whimsy Stamps Candy Corn Dress Up | 31 Nights of Halloween

Whimsy Stamps Candy Corn Dress Up

Hi crafty friends! Are you enjoying the month-long inspiration of Halloween and prizes? It’s Donna from the Whimsy Stamps Video Team, and I am sharing a cutesy Halloween card featuring the Candy Corn Dress Up stamp set.

I started by stamping out all of the images onto solar white cardstock with Copic friendly ink and colored them in with Copic Markers. Then I used my ScanNCut to cut the images out.

Copic Markers: E35, YR07, YR04, YR12, E34, Y15, Y08, Y00, B17, B13, B04, B02, YG17, YG03, N7, N5, N3, N1, N0, C3, C1, C00

Whimsy Stamps Candy Corn Dress Up

For the background, I trimmed a piece of smooth cardstock down to 8.50” by 3.50” and ink blended the background using Distress Ink in Seedless Preserve, Picked Raspberry, and Dried Marigold.

I blended a small panel of smooth cardstock with Distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn for the grass. I die cut the panel with the grass die from the Grass and Cloud Edger Dies.

Next, I added water splatters and white diluted paint across both of the panels and set those aside to dry.

While the panels were drying, I die cut several trees from the Forest Majesty Die Set and added Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo to ink them.

At this point, I had all of the elements, and it was time to start assembling the card. I added the background panel using liquid adhesive to a slimline card base. I used foam tape to add dimension to the grass border and added in all of the images.

To complete this card, I trimmed a piece of black cardstock, stamped the sentiment from the stamp set, popped it up on foam adhesive on the card front, and finally, added the clouds from the Happy Sky stamp set.

I hope you are enjoying the 31 Nights of Halloween and are inspired by all of the projects so far, don’t forget to enter the grand prize giveaway on the Whimsy Stamps Blog!
