Hi, crafty friends! Recently I discovered Hello Sweetums, a small family business based in Australia. I was in awe of their cute and playful designs and had to try out some of these stamps myself. For today’s blog post and video, I decided to play with the Crafty Companions set which is available for pre-order. Estimated shipping date is September 1st.
I colored the paintbrush, bottle of glue and washi tape with Copic Sketch Markers. My two go-to supplies or coloring with these markers are Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Simon Says Stamp 120# Ultra Heavy Weight White Card Stock. It’s seriously a match made in heaven. Something about that card stock makes blending much smoother and easier.
Because I wanted these crafty images to steal the spotlight, I adhered them to a white die cut circle with foam squares. Using a basic geometric shape like a circle or rectangle really makes your stamps pop more! I used the Nestabillities Standard Circles SM Etched Die Cut Set from Spellbinders. This is my go-to circle die cut set since I like the variety of the sizes.
Next, I took a piece of patterned paper and cut it to 2, 1/2 inch wide. To add an extra pop of color, I adhered this piece of paper to Robin’s Blue card stock from Bazzill. Finally, I finished off this card with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen, a coat of Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze and a couple of Tonic Nuvo White Blizzard and Aquatic Mist Glitter Drops.
That’s it for now. Thanks for stopping by. I’ll see you soon. 💛
