Cold Hands, Warm Heart by Amanda Southern


Hi Everyone

This week I have been playing with another of the stamp sets from AALL & Create that have recently arrived at That’s Crafty! 

Here’s What I Did:

First I had to prepare the Dinky MDF Upright, for this I used That’s Crafty! paints, these paints have great coverage so I didn’t bother with a layer of gesso, I also didn’t mind if the colour of the MDF showed through. Using a piece of cut down washing up sponge as it gives great texture with the paint, you could use Cut & Dry Foam, I randomly layered up Teal, Ice Blue and White. I also treated the That’s Crafty! greyboard snowflakes in the same way other than they had a little of the Metallic Blue added. When all the paint was dry I glued the Upright together using Multi Purpose Glue. I then added the snowflakes using Multi Purpose Glue on some and 3D Gel on the others.

Onto a piece of stamping card I stamped the characters from the AALL and Create Stamp Set #13, they were then coloured with coloured pencils. I then cut them out and added them to the Ppright, again using Multi Purpose Glue.

The second little chap I wanted peeping over the top of the Upright and made him a little heart to hang around his neck, this I just punched from red card several times, glued together with black cotton in between so I could hang it and edged with Vintage Photo Distress ink.

 I then typed out the saying ‘Cold hands, warm heart’ on my old typewriter, edged in Iced Spruce Distress ink and glued to the snowflakes. To dull it all down a little I brushed Vintage Photo Distress ink around the project.

What I Used:

That’s Crafty! Multi Surface Paint – White, Teal, Metallic Ice Blue
Washing up sponge or Cut & Dry Foam
Distress Inks – Vintage Photo, Iced Spruce
Stencil Brush

Have a fabulous week
