Hi Hip Kit fans! Hope you are having a great week.
It’s Natsuko Suzuki and I’m here with a mood board challenge and my layout using the March Hip Kit.
Here is the mood board I made.
And here is my layout.
I was inspired by the colors and the circle shape of the macarons. The other assignment was to incorporate stamps and ink pads, so I used the stamp and inks from the March color kit, inks from the February color kit and stamps from the March Pocket Life kit. I also added some word stamps from the previous PL kits.
I stamped on the background first and cut out a bunch of circles from the Making Memories Paper. Then I directly rubbed the ink pads to white smooth cardstock, stamped over them with black solvent ink and cut them out. I adhered the cut-out pieces on the stamped background and made a tone-on-tone effect. The inks colors so beautifully, they look like color cardstock!
I tore the leftover paper and adhered them on the left side. To add interest, I curled the edges.
I also added a piece of Pinkfresh Studio Chipboard Flair from the Main Kit and some Simple Stories Simple Vintage Life in Bloom stickers from the Embellishment Kit.
The stamps and inks are so easy and fun to use, and I hope you will try these techniques. I will post a reel in my Instagram soon so you can see the process. Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope you have a great weekend!
