Hummingbird Card And Blog Hop

Today's project is a collaboration with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Hero Arts.  Both design teams have come together to create for this one day event.  And, there are prizes from both companies!  Woo-hoo!  Be sure you visit both company blogs to enter.  The theme for this event is seasonal (summer, graduation, 4th of July, etc.) or general (birthday, thank you, friendship, etc.).  I'm going with summer and creating this pretty hummingbird card featuring the Hero Arts Hummingbird stamps and dies.  Plus, I've got a one minute technique video, showing you how to color glue, so stick around for a few minutes!

First, let me share some creative details.   To begin, I trimmed a piece of watercolor paper and used a masking technique to stamp a flower border with the blooms included in the Hero Arts Hummingbird stamp set.  I've used the Hero Arts Intense Black Ink Pad for all my base stamping, along with my Misti stamp positioner.   Next, I stamped and die cut my hummingbird with the Hero Arts Hummingbird Frame Cuts dies.  All my coloring was done using watercolors by swiping my Zig brush markers onto a craft mat and using a water brush.  This allowed me to mix and blend colors for my hummingbird and flowers.  You'll find a full list of product links at the end of this post.





I love getting super creative so I decided to try and color my glue and make faux paint splatters.  I've got a 1 minute video below that shows you how to do that.  So easy!







For the center of my flower blooms, I wanted some dimension, so I dotted glue from my Scrapbook Adhesives dual tip glue pen, then sprinkled some of my Hero Arts white embossing powder.  I did this in batches, to prevent my glue from drying too quickly before I finished all the blossoms.  My beautiful scene and coordinating coral cardstock are adhered using my E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.  The 3D Foam Squares White Mix help to pop up my hummingbird and give dimension.

Just Cards Video Hop Modern Wedding Shaker Card

Hey crafty guys and gals, it's time for this month's round up of video inspiration from the Just Cards Video Hop crew.  The theme this month is wedding/anniversary.  I've created a contemporary wedding card for your viewing pleasure!


(FTC Disclosure: as an affiliate for various companies in the craft industry, I will receive a small commission for purchases made through my convenient affiliate links.  This does not affect your purchase price.)






My project features the exclusive Crate Paper Flourish collection which you can find at scrapbook.com.  I have really enjoyed this collection.  It includes 200 pieces.  Yes, 200!  I am so smitten by the doodled frame and you'll see later in the video, how I built my card with the frame as the featured element.  P.S.... this collection is currently on sale.  Bonus!





You'll also see in my video how I went "old school" for the making of this shaker; no fancy shaker kits.  Just good old fashioned adhesive foam.  All my adhesive products today are from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.  I'll have convenient shopping links below because I'm just a little bit of an enabler.  I don't deny it!  Those pretty, sparkly sequins are courtesy of Buttons Galore and their 28 Lilac Lane embellishment line.  These photos can't really capture the iridescent yumminess of those sparkling beauties.  You can find all of the gorgeous 28 Lilac Lane sequin collections, here.





Check out my video inspiration below but click the link to go visit the rest of the hop.  I'd appreciate a "like" and if you would, subscribe to my YT channel.  Growing a YouTube channel can painfully slow!  I appreciate your help so much.  Thank you!  Terri

Card For Dad Featuring The Hedgehog Hollow June Kit

 Here's my first project for The Hedgehog Hollow design team and I'm featuring mostly products from the June card subscription kit.  This includes cardstock, dies and stamps included in the kit.  Let me share a few key tips on how this A2 sized card came together.



(FTC Disclosure: as an affiliate for various companies in the craft industry, I will receive a small commission for purchases made through my convenient affiliate links.  This does not affect your purchase price.)




First, I used my stamp positioner and positioned my black cardstock in the corner.  After stamping my steel cut background stamp with grey pigment ink, I picked up my cardstock, turned it clockwise 180 degrees and re-stamping the same image.  It gave a 3D effect that I really like.  Since it was pigment ink, I misted with my water mister to fade the color even more, blotted dry then heat with my craft heat tool to dry.




For my "Dad" sentiment, I cut the word 3 times with the white cardstock included in the kit, using my manual die cut machine.  Next, I glued all my layers together to give more dimension and popped up with thin strips of foam tape.  I also trimmed a piece of the heavyweight kraft paper include in the kit and cut with the pocket die, then embossed with a wood plank embossing folder.  The pocket die is larger than I wanted on this A2 card, so I simply moved the bottom edge of the die about an inch below the cardstock, to allow for a shorter die cut.   Or you can just trim as you like for your card dimensions.

My smaller sentiment was stamped with the LDRS Creative Raven hybrid ink that was included in the March subscription.  Next, I popped it up with foam circles onto a larger piece of white cardstock.  Ribbon trim and silver foiled black foam circles finish off the embellishments.  The foiled circles remind me of nails hammered into that kraft, woodplank die cut.  What do you think?




This is such a fun kit this month.  Alexandra designed all the stamps and dies for this kit which makes it extra special.  They are exclusive products, only to subscription kit members.  Don't forget, regular subscribers get a free bonus item each month.  The bonus item in the June kit is from the new Arabian Nights collection from Tonic (Copper Blush/embossing powder).

Did you miss my un-boxing video?  Check it out below to see all the contents included in this month's kit with over an $80 value!  It would really make my day if you subscribed to my YouTube channel and gave a "thumbs up" on the video.  Thanks!




Hop on over to The Hedgehog Hollow and check out the shop with details on becoming a kit subscriber.  Each month typically includes stamps and dies from top industry stamp companies, along with video tutorials and exclusive coupon codes.  I'm super excited about what's coming next month!  Don't miss out, join today!  



I hope you're following me on my other social media as well!
