Helly crafty friends
Friday nights are crafty nights, but unfortunately we had some issues with our stream on friday, which is why we have TWO videos below. Firstly, one where i start making the background for a Hugs and Kisses card, and the second video was from Saturday evening’s stream, where we used a different software – which thankfully meant I could continue getting crafty with you guys!
Let’s take a look at the cards i made!
First off this card inspired by a new die to my arsenal – the Hugs and Kisses die from Winnie & Walter. I first created an ink blended background, then added some X’s and O’s to the top to make it pop!
I stacked up a few layers of the hugs and kisses die using white cardstock, and topped it off with dark grey card. I love how this makes the sentiment look sturdy and bold! I added a few embellishments to finish – dew drops and diamonds from honey bee stamps and some crystals from Studio Katia.
Next up was the card everyone was waiting for! Last week, in the chat box during my stream, there was some discussion about crocs and plaid, and somehow I decided to take up the challenge – create a card with crocs in socks, plaid socks! LOL
I created an African sunset ink blended background, and built a washing line using a stamp from the Heffy Doodle Warm Hugs stamp set and some crochet twine.
I had to draw little socks for my crocs, but for the washing line, i used the stocking stamp from the Heffy Doodle Elfish Antics stamp set. How fun!
The best bit was the greeting on the inside, which was suggested by viewer Snow – You CROC my SOCKS off! mwuahahahah!! I stamped it jiggypiggly on purpose for speed, and to give a more whimsical feel.
I didn’t have much time for the last card, so i grabbed a big background stamp, some watercolour card and my colour bursts. I LOVE the way it turned out. I embossed the large stamp with white embossing, and then added my colour burst on top.
I then finished the card with a Lawn Fawn Octopus image and a foam die cut thanks sentiment, covered in glossy accents! Lovely jubbly!
And that’s all she wrote, folks! Join me next Friday for another CCWM live crafty sesh over at http://youtube.com/hungryheffy! Until then, happy crafting!
