Extra Styles


My crafting resolutions:
1. To create more than 50% of my projects with either recycled materials or scrap left over materials to cut waste and excessive earth fillers.
2. Teach paper crafting classes and share the Joy.
3.Custom Design Products I love to use and share.
4. Learn everyday what it takes to be patient, understanding, tolerant and giving.

Watermark ink with Stencil on Kraft

Happy Sunday crafty friends!  Today I've used my stencil design you can find exclusive in The Hedgehog Hollow October subscription box!  The box comes with over $100.00 worth of product including three stamp sets, stencil, the Double Dial Die, papers, brads and more!  It's while supplies last and limited so don't wait, they're going fast! 

Today I wanted to simplify the Holiday card making process for the beginner card designer.  With a piece of Kraft card stock and the reindeer portion of the stencil, I dabbed watermark ink into the reindeer form and was sure to get into every nick and cranny! 

I did have to mask off the reindeer from the other portions of the stencil so the ink wouldn't leak into snowflakes or other parts.  Then I drew a collar in gold and black ink and used a berry colored alcohol ink and designed three little berries at the back of the collar.  I used a white gel pen for the four dots on each reindeer back and tied some twine around the kraft paper with a bow.  

A strip of vellum was cut, a strip of black card stock was stamped and embossed with white and adhered to the bottom for the sentiment section.  

 All that remained was to pop up the front Kraft panel and use the watermark ink again onto red paper from in the box and fussy cut another Reindeer to pop up onto the empty part of the banner strip.  Voila!  Done!  It's a 10 minute card!  

 Until Next Time, Stay Crafty!
