HELLO SWEETUMS Crafty Companions | Good bye, HS

December 13, 2019

Sadly, this will be my last official post as a design team member for Hello Sweetums. The sweet and wonderful owner has decided to close up shop at the end of 2019. When she told me this, I had to make her this card and send it all the way to Australia. I wanted Angie to know, even though she currently no longer has the company, she will always have a friend in me.

To start my card, I stamped and colored all the images from Crafty Companions stamp set with Copic markers in rainbow order. I die cut them all out with coordinating dies and set them aside to work on my background.

For the background, I kept the rainbow theme going and inkblended with Distress Inks in Abandon Coral, Wild Honey, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violet. I then splashed some water onto it and stamped the little heart images with the same Distress Inks.

I adhered my images on with glue or foam tape just to give it a multi-dimensional look. Lastly, I heat embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder and my card is company.

Bye for now, Hello Sweetums! Thank you for bringing an enormous amount of “cute” into 2019 for me!
