Thankful Bee Card with Noga

Hi crafty friends, Noga here and I am so happy to share with you another card from Hello Sweetums!




To make this card I took an A2 panel of Bristol smooth cardstock.

The background was created with honeycomb stencil and dried marigold distress oxide ink.


Next I colored the adorable bees using copic markers and glued them to my panel with foam tape for dimension.

Next I stamped a greeting from this set on the panel using black ink. To finish off, I added some clear sequins for decoration.

I hope you enjoy the card I created and are inspired to create!

Have a wonderful day!

Sweet Cookie Card with Angie

Hi, crafty friends! It's Angie, here, and I'm back with a new card! I decided to make a sweet and pastel CAS card using just two stamp sets!

 

To start out, I wanted a pale colour scheme, so I ink blended some Distress Oxide Inks onto some Bristol paper, using Spun Sugar, and a little bit of Picked Raspberry. I waited for the background to dry, and in the meantime inked up a couple of images from the Baking Buddies stamp set, and a large cookie from the Squeak Cheeks stamp set.


I coloured them with my ShinHan markers, in light colours and cut them out with their coordinating dies. Then, using the cookie stamp, I made my own patterned background with some clear embossing ink and white embossing powder. I then thought it would be cute to use a little bit of vellum on this card, and trimmed a thick sized strip. I used the same embossing powder for my sentiment.


I also added 3 teeeeeny tiny little mouse sized cookies to the tray that the little buddy on the right is holding. Isn't it just the most adorable thing? I then stuck down the cookies and mice with adhesive foams and a white strip of Bristol card onto the pink panel, with the vellum on top. Everything was then adhered onto a cardbase.


And that finishes up my card for today! I hope you enjoy my design and get inspired to create!

Hey Alligator Card with Ashlee

Hey everyone.... Ashlee here....

I have some new summery fun "Hello Sweetums" inspiration to share with you...

I created this beach scene card using the sweet little mouse from the "Baking Buddies" set having a ball on the beach playing in the sand with the snappy crocodile from the
"Sand, Sun and Fun" set!!


The background was done using a stencil from Altenew called Scallop builder which I ink blended then used embossing powder over one of the colour layers to give a shimmery effect....



Using the "Water Waves" die I added a beach scene behind the coloured images so that they are sitting on the beach...
 




I coloured in the images with a mix of Copic and Spectrum Tri-blend markers which were all stamped on x-press it blending card with Memento tuxedo black ink...

A large focal sentiment and some water droplets perfect for a beach card finished it off....

I hope you like my latest HS card as much as i enjoyed creating it!!

I Like The Way You Roll Pop Up Slider with Davina

Hey there crafty friends! Davina here and I’m very excited to be guest posting for the incredible Hello Sweetums team. I felt so honored to be asked, that I knew I’d have to come up with something special. After sitting at my desk all morning experimenting with funny scraps of paper, I can say that I have earned my self-proclaimed degree in cardmaking engineering.


 Using the squeaking cute stamp set Squeak Cheeks I created a double action slider card. I’m so pleased with how this turned out and although I don’t have exact directions or measurements,  I will give you a little peak into the crazy mechanics of this. Last week I made a homemade “teeter totter” action card that allowed two figures to jump up and down opposite of each other.  I wanted to alter that design to allow side to side sliding , and up and down motions at the same time. After much experimentation, I achieved my desired results.
 


 First I die cut two stitched panels from Bristol Smooth cardstock, then I used some Dies from my craft stash to cut out the two sliding channels. Next I used a pair of  Hello Sweetums Water Waves dies to add a stitched wave to one panel, and to cut a wave from my second panel about 1/3 of the way from the top. I then used my blending brushes to inkblend my panels with Distress Oxide Inks. For the top portion I blended Tumbled Glass into white, then used Broken Chin very sparingly around the edges. For the main body portion that is representing my “straw”, I blended Scattered Staw (always heavier around the edges) and then just around the border Brushed Corduroy. I inked up my second shorter panel with the same color combo. I gently splattered with clean water followed by white opaque ink and put aside to dry.
 

I used my Stamp Platform to stamp the adorable images onto Neenah Solar Bright White Cardstock. I colored my images using Copic markers before cutting out with the coordinating Die set, followed up by white gel pen highlights. I stamped my sentiment across the bottom of the shorter panel then assembled my swinging arm slider. There was a lot of trial and error, and honestly, the most difficult part was finding the best location for the small mini brad that makes the swinging motion possible. Don’t tell anyone but there are a few extra holes in there behind the front panel. Once I was satisfied with the motion I layered my shorter panel over the top with foam tape (allowing enough room for my critter to pop up) then securing the sliding disc with glue and a circle of paper.
 

I adhered all of my images onto the scene, covering my disc with the hamster ball, and loved how well they all fit onto my card. I went back in with the brushed corduroy ink and the looped swirl stamp to put some motion behind the rolling ball, and really loved the results. To finish it up I needed to double up my foam tape all around the edges of the back of my card, making sure to leave open the areas that my motion arm would need to move freely. There were a few corners of the mechanism that I snipped away at to reduce the amount of space needed. Then I mounted in all onto some striped patterned paper, then onto my cardbase with Scor Tape.
 

I’m so happy with the results and hope that you enjoy seeing this guy in action. Please head over to my instagram @popsiclesticks to see a quick video of the motion.

Thank you so much for dropping by,
Davina

Squeakin' Cute DIY Patterened Paper Card

Hello! It's Yainea!

To make my card, I started by stamping some of the little images from the Squeak Cheeks stamp set using light grey ink to create a background. Then I stamped, colored with alcohol markers and die cute the cute guinea pigs using the coordinating dies. I stamped the ball on clear acetate using StazOn ink to create the feeling of a plastic ball.


Then, I cut a big banner and colored it with Distress Inks creating an ombre effect, I sprinkled water all over it to add some texture.


To create the sentiment I used Thickers for the hello word and heat embossed one of the sentiments from the set on a stripe of black cardstock using white embossing powder. Finally, I put everything together with glue and foam adhesive.

Thank you for visiting the blog and I hope I've inspired you to create!

Pastel Panel Card

Hi, crafty friends! It's Angie, and I hope you're having a lovely week. Today I'm sharing a happy, little pastel panel card!

First, I began cutting out some rectangular panels in different sizes, using a rounded rectangle die. I then used a medium sized make up brush to add some colour to the panels with Distress Oxide Inks. I just love how creamy these are, which makes blending suuuuuper easy.



For each panel, I blended two colours together, to give the card a bit of definition. I combined Antique Linen with Scattered Straw, Spun Sugar with Picked Raspberry (my favourite!) and Milled Lavender with Shaded Lilac. I then used a spritz bottle to tap some water droplets onto the wet ink, and blotted it up with a paper towel.


While they dried, I then stamped and coloured some images from the Squeak Cheeks stamp set with my ShinHan markers, and cut them out with their coordinating dies. I used a lighter, pastel colour scheme for this card, and I think it turned out so well with the background colours.


I then created a fishtail banner and heat embossed a sentiment on it with silver embossing powder. For some dimension, I added foam tape to the back all my images and background rectangles, and adhered everything down onto a plain white cardbase. I wanted the two smaller panels at the top, so it sort of looked like a comic style card. For the finishing touches, I added an adorable plastic heart and some sparkle with clear droplets, using super strong Glossy Accents, and also a little shine line detail onto the rolly ball with a white gel pen.

And that finishes up my card for today! I hope you enjoy my design and get inspired to create!
