Hi there crafty friends and welcome to #TexturalTuesdays and Hedgehugs! :) Otherwise known as the first #TexturalTuesdays of 2017.
It’s going to be a fun one today as I share a card made using Avery Elle products made by Heather Campbell who is also a designer for Ellen Hutson. She is so amazing.
This card I made for #TexturalTuesdays is using tons of color mediums: Copic markers, Zig Clean Color Markers, and Distress Inks!! All on one card. And I *think* I pulled it off. ;) As I sold most of my Copics? This was way out of my comfort zone, but I still did it. Sometimes you just have to take the bull by the horns. I knew in order to give the hedgie the perfect quills, the Copic markers would be the best way to go.
For all of the behind the scenes action on the card, I urge you to check out the CLASSroom blog for my #TexturalTuesdays and Hedgehugs card. You’ll read more about how this card was created and see more photos, as well.
All of the supplies for this card are listed below. As I am an affiliate for Ellen Hutson, I do receive a small, teeny tiny, itty-bitty commision for anything you purchase through me. And I thank you in advance. It keeps my blog semi working (ha!) and bug free. ♥
Wishing you all a wonderful day! xo
Happy Veterans Day! Today is a day that I salute and thank ALL veterans before me (and after me) who served and sacrificed to protect this beautiful country that I call home. Without you all I doubt we’d still be this great nation. It’s not always perfect here, but I’d never want to live anywhere else and I am so proud to be an American.
I am on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today with a card that I’m just so proud of. I hope that you’ll like it, too. All of the details for the card are on the blog. Click HERE.
So, to celebrate this very Happy Veterans Day, I want to say to all of the Veterans out there…You are MY hero. Thank you for standing in the face of adversity, for having the courage to hold your hand up and swear to defend our Constitution, for being brave (always), and for being the face of freedom. God bless you all. ♥
Happy Veterans Day to you all.

For my projects today I’m using some really awesome new coordinating new products! I looooove dies that coordinate with stamps, don’t you? I also used one of the new die sets as a stand alone project.
My first card features the oh-so fabulous Santa from the Tis the Season Stamps . I ♥LOVE♥ this Santa!! I used the stamp and coordinating die from Tis the Season Dies to cut this cutie out 3 times. And I used another super cute stamp from Santa’s Flight to really make the card “POP!”
Santa’s shades were made shiny were Black Enamel Accents and White Enamel Accents were used for the pom-poms on the hats. He was colored using Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® Art GRIP® Color Pencils.
This is the second card I made and I neeeeeeeded to get watercolor-y. :) So I broke out my Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor set. After cutting the watercolor paper to size I loosely watercolored a background using colors I thought would be pleasing for Fall/Autumn.
Place a piece of watercolor paper onto a piece of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Adhesive Sheets, remove the liner paper and burnish well. Place your die on to the paper and run through the die-cutting machine. By doing this you have a perfectly die-cut piece with a sticky side that still has a liner on it — which can be removed when you are ready. I love these sheets!
I then very lightly watercolored the blooms and leaves from the Gourd-jus Dies set. After adding some thin strips of Little B washi, I simply adhered everything down — lifting the liner from the backs of the die-cut pieces and adding teensy pieces of foam to the back of the falling leaf. There’s not much left to completing this card. Stamping the sentiment and adding the embellishments…but the finished result is so lovely.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my cards today as much as *I* enjoyed making them for you. These blog hops are so fun. Make sure you hop on over to the phenomenal SANDY ALLNOCK’S Blog to see what gloriousness she has created!

Hi everyone! I have a little Hello Card that I made using some of the brand new adhesive products for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® on their blog today.
I always enjoy challenging myself to think a little outside the box with products. And this Hello Card worked out just perfectly. I’m still crushing pretty hard on the whole black, Kraft, gold color scheme – so please forgive me. I can’t seem to shake it just yet. And I love the added interest of the vellum on this card. The dots with the diagonal stripes behind it just make me happy.
Ahhhhhhh!!!! Doesn’t it just make you wanna go up to some random stranger and say “Hello”?!!? No? Well, okay then. Maybe it’s just me and I’m getting a little loopy from it being SO late. ;)
Anyway! I do hope that you’ll pop on over to the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog and check out how I made my cutie little Hello Card since I made y’all a little tutorial over there. I promise that you won’t hate it. :)
Hope that you all have a FABULOUS Monday. Drink lots and lots of coffee! I intend to slurp down at least a pot or two myself. ;)
