Sugar Hollow You’re A Hoot!

Sugar Hollow You’re A Hoot!

Hi everyone!  How is January treating you?  It’s hard to believe how fast time flies by!  I’ve been having so much fun with the Sugar Hollow Collection and have created a quick simple card that you can whip up in no time for that special friend that always manages to make you laugh.

Products Used:

HCPC-3644 – Birds and Blooms Cling Stamp Set
HCPC-3715 – You’re A Hoot Cling Stamp Set
HCD2-751 – Cut Mat Create 2A Die
HCD1-757 – Leafy Branch Die
HCD1-786 – Sugar Hollow Bungalow Die
HCDP1-262 – Sugar Hollow Paper Collection
Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit
Art Institute Glue – Dries Clear Glue
Spellbinders Tool N’ One

Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Green Card Stock, Belly Band One, Pebbles Classic Chalks, Sugar Glitter Paste, Versamark, Black Opal Embossing Powder, Corduroy Distressed Ink, Trim and Pearls from my stash and die cutting machine.


Start by creating your basic 5″ x 7″ card with a 6 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ layer of paper from the Sugar Hollow Paper Collection.  Next cut another piece of white card stock 6″ x 2″ and a third piece 3″ x 2″ and finish these off with layer of paper from the Sugar Hollow Paper Collection both cut 1/4″ smaller then the white.  Glue together the 2 smallest pieces followed by the next 2 pieces and finally glue the 2 pieces you just built together.  Stamp you favorite sentiment using Versamark and heat emboss with Black Opal Embossing Powder and die cut using the Spellbinders Belly Band One die.  Before you fasten the layers you just built to the largest piece of the Sugar Hollow Paper Collection, thread your ribbon through the sentiment die cut and fasten one side to the edge of the vertical rectangle layer.  Once the glue has dried, glue the 2 layers and the sentiment to the last layer of the Sugar Hollow Paper Collection and finally wrap the ribbon around the back of the other side.  Once the glue has dried attach the completed layer to the base of your card and finish decorating as desired!  I colored my You’re A Hoot Cling Stamp Set with Pebbles Classic Chalks before brushing it with Sugar Glitter Paste.

Thanks so much for visiting.  Have a wonderful day!

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
