Today’s post is part of a fun YouTube hop, Hobbies and Pastime, where we are sharing videos of our hobbies with you guys. You can find my video HERE.
I have focused on coloured card stock and diecutting for my video and this post, as I love using coloured card stock for a pop of colour and texture.
Because I absolutely detest fussy cutting, I consider die cutting one of my favourite techniques ever. For these fun bits I have used every single colour from the Assorted Cardstock pack and a sweet word diecut. This Happiness die is from Neat & Tangled, it is sadly no longer available *insert dramatic wailing here*
The coloured card stock is from Concord & 9th, and I used all the colours in different ways. A fun and quick way to add card stock to your backgrounds is to simply cut strips of it and adhere to your card base. A little hack to get the rainbow sun rays look, is to use PostIt tape, washi or other low-tack tape to keep the strips in place while you add your liquid glue to them. In the video you get to see how I do it.
I made two cards with the rainbow sun rays look, one on a white card base and one on a black one. On the white one I didn’t manage to fit all the colours in, but on the black one I did. Every single colour in the card stock pack.
Each one got a Happiness worddie added to it, as well as a coordinating sentiment. This stamp set is also no longer available from Neat & Tangled, but you might get lucky and find it somewhere else. The sentiments are stamped up with Mushroom ink to keep the look soft.
I have listed all the products, and some coordinating products, I have used for these cards with compensated affiliate links below. If you shop using these links I get a small commission directly from the company it’s affiliate with, as a thank you for directing you to the shop. Any earnings I get from these go directly back into running my blog, YouTube channel and keeping the content free and fun for you!
Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you found some inspiration in this post and video and will try some of these for yourself. Don’t forget to check out the video and the rest of the hop!
Lots of love and happy crafting from Erica
