Sunday Stamping With Hedgehog Hollow – Layered Die-Cuts

June 18, 2017

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to Sunday Stamping with Hedgehog Hollow on the ECD blog. I am so excited to be a guest blogger.  First of all let me introduce myself. My name is Alexandra and I run a crafty blog called Hedgehog Hollow,  I am a British mummy who recently moved to Ohio, blogging about my adventures on this side of the pond along with our Prickle’s crafty exploits!  I will be here once a month with a full video tutorial on cardmaking techniques.  Each video will have lots of tips and tricks and a few hacks along the way to give you the most from your crafty budget.  ECD even created this wonderful graphic for me to add to our monthly posts…

I love the new trend of layered die cuts, however, they end up being so pricey once you have bought all the layers. So, of course I decided to create my own and the ECD Chevrons Background die was perfect for this technique as would the Diamond Background die.  Here are the cards we are going to create in today’s tutorial. I chose a 4th of July theme but you could use any color combination, or amend the sentiment for a birthday or anniversary as the colors are great for a masculine card (something I always find a bit tricky)…

Isn’t it surprising how using the same three colors in a different order come out with such a different effect?  These are super simple cards, your die cutting machine does all the work for you!  Here is a step-by-step video tutorial on how to create your own layered die cuts…

If you wish to use the Diamond Background, cut it down the middle and offset each half for the perfect layered effect.  I have so many ideas with this die that it will definitely be featured in a future post, so stay tuned to the ECD blog and Hedgehog Hollow for more ideas and some of my favorite tools from today’s tutorial.  For today, here is your ECD supply list for the tutorial. We have an exclusive Hedgehog Hollow discount code on our crafty sale page, too…

Hello there! It’s Riikka here to share two projects with you and they both come with a tutorial! This card has a step by step version and then the layout that I made as my other project has a video! Double treat, should I say! Like always both of the crafts use the same idea, steps, and materials but the form is just different.

Chevron Halloween Cards

Chevron Halloween Cards
By Judi Kauffman

chevron-1 chevron-2 chevron-3The new Chevron Background die is so much fun to use! It cuts a rectangle that will fill an A2-size card front. It also cuts lots of smaller pieces, some with decorative stitched lines, as well as ten flag pieces with holes at the top for stringing them together as banners.

I decided to cut the Chevron Background from Bright Orange Soft Finish Cardstock and challenged myself to use every single piece for a batch of Halloween cards. Backing the cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet before cutting made it extra fast and easy.

Though I ended up with three cards; you could make more cards by using fewer pieces on each one.
