New Baby Chalkboard Card for Hedgehog Hollow

Dec 11, 2019Baby Cards3 comments

A baby card is always worth making…

… because baby cards tend to be kept as keepsakes or put into scrapbooks. That’s why I love to make them as customized as possible! The November Hedgehog Hollow stamp sets let me do just that!

Not so serious

I love that this stamp set doesn’t take itself so seriously! When I saw it I immediately thought of drawing figures on a chalkboard. And, since there are family members of every age, plus a few extra fun pieces to add some personality to the family, it’s easy to create a grouping that reflects the recipients!

Make it chalky

A true chalkboard effect isn’t hard to achieve. The November kit comes with both black and green cardstock, so you could go for either. Whichever you choose, the method is the same! I use white pigment ink to do my stamping and embossing (to make a perfect white impression) and then I just use a blending brush with the tiniest bit of white pigment ink swiped across the finished design to make it look like a recently cleaned chalkboard. If I want a more swipey look, I use a damp cloth to swipe through the blended ink.

Mix & Match

I love that Laura went heavy on the character options instead of saving room for sentiment. That really allows total creativity in creating a scene. Plus, since the designs are so clean and simple, just about any kind of sentiment from another stamp set will work with the set – baby, birthday, graduation, wedding, birthday – even pet related sentiments work!
