Do you ever have those days/weeks where life just feels like it super catches up to you? That was me the last few weeks. But I was finally able to knock a few things off my to-do list and find a minute to sit down and get a blog post written for you!
I keep wanting to say this will be the last fall post of the year… but I think we all know that’s not true… I’ve bought way to much fall stuff this year that I haven’t even touched yet!
Today I’m here to share what I created with my October Hedgehog Hollow box. Yes… I said October… I told you life caught up with me and I was behind.
I had a lot of fun with this kit. The month the featured company was The Ink Road Stamps. This is one of the reasons I fell in love with The Hedgehog Hollow kits. With a different stamp company featured every month I was bound to get to try a few new companies and I mean who doesn’t love finding new stamp companies. I really love these stamps from The Ink Road and am even hoping to possibly pick up a few more tomorrow 😉
First off we have this fun Halloween throwback card. Almost everything on this card came out of the Hedgehog hollow box! The only thing I supplied was the ink pencils and Kraft paper that I colored on. And honestly, the Kraft paper might have been in the box too… I know some was in there but I’m not sure what card it ended up on. I will say one thing I am thankful for this year is my MISTI, Stamping on textured cardstock is hard… and thanks to my MISTI I was able to get a great impression on my sentiment because I could stamp over and over and over again.
For some reason this year I have been wanting to make some kind of pumpkin spice latte card. I have no idea why because I don’t even like pumpkin spice lattes or pumpkin spice in general but the little coffee cup and pumpkin and that sentiment made this perfect.
In this month’s box, we were also given some watercolor cards. I have a love-hate relationship with watercolor… It’s probably my least favorite medium to use but I absolutely refuse to give it up although I’m pretty happy with how these leaves turned out. Now it’s story time. Remember how I said I was thankful for my MISTI… While here’s why.
When I first made this card it was late. The leaves had been sitting on my desk for a week waiting for me to do something with them and I was just like it’s time to sit down and make something so I did. Then it was time to stamp the greeting, My MISTI was buried and my table is a mess and I didn’t really want to deal with moving everything to get it out. Sooo I just said ahh there’s a block right here I’ll just stamp this quick this way. I bet you can guess how that ended.
Yea… Not well… Luckily I had this handy black pen and was able to just trace and save it but still, It’s always worth digging out the MISTI! Maybe I need to invest in a mini MISTI just to have it around. No more excuses then!
That wraps up the October box! I’m hoping to get around to making some things with my November box this weekend. So watch out for that in the coming weeks.
Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the internet! I hope you all have really great Thanksgiving and get to spend time with the people you enjoy and doing the things you enjoy!
