Hummingbird digi freebies & Notepad Box gift set


Hi You Crafty People You,

Mel here, with a gift box set & some digital image freebies & stuff. :O) This uses embossing on the Glimmer cardstock. The metallic finish lets you emboss printer ink (if you act relatively quickly.) With so many free digis out there, I can’t get enough of embossing them!

Tempting Papers used in this project:

Beargrass Glimmer Cardstock
Berrylicious Pop Tones Cardstock
& Black Licorice Pop Tones Cardstock

Here’s a 3×3 card…

Here’s the notepad box…

The berries are embroidery thread knots…


(I get such a kick out of doing those knots!) :O)

The first JPG–“original hummingbird“–is the one I used for this project,
embossed on the Beargrass Glimmer Cardstock out of my printer:

This just used clear embossing powder & it gives a charcoal look but with shine.

You could use silver embossing powder or gold, copper….

For the 3×3 notecards, I used photo software to print &
emboss a whole sheet for speedy colouring.


There’s a tutorial on my blog here with Copic colouring details.

Copics give a brush stroke kind of texture on Glimmer which is fun to experiment with,
and man oh man does it save ink (since it doesn’t soak in.) :O)

The labels can be found in this post (on my blog):

Here’s how I used them….

Hope there was something fun in here for ya!
:o)
Mel
