April 2019 - Forgery on the Fourth

Hip Kit Club March 2019 Main Kit

An interesting color palette of pink, blue, fresh green & mustard...

I predict we will see a bowed paper clip or two! Some of the other available kits shown below have even more inspiring items to forge:

Hip Kit Club March 2019 Embellishment Kit

 Break out your stamps or even freehand some of those cute summer images. Ribbon bows? Total cuteness & the stripes are actually a pale pink & royal blue. Border punch & gold paper would make a nice imitation of the washi, and who is patient enough to color block some letters for a custom title?

Looks like much of this kit would be hunting & gathering, but I'm wondering how alcohol inks would work on clear rhinestones?

Let's learn a little from the Masters...

Master Forger Leslie got quite painterly & inky this month, plus had a few serendipitous additions!


Master Forger Laura was inspired by the rainbow of enamel dot hearts in the main kit, and also the blue butterfly paper. She used 2 different sized heart punches and rainbow of scraps and made her own sheet of ready made heart embellishments. Foam tape on the back of the hearts will provide dimension, and an old piece of packaging from an alphabet sticker set was the perfect background to house these hearts whilst they await a new home on a layout. She also recreated the blue butterfly paper. She used a digital blue butterfly from the Crate Paper On Trend collection, and digitally stamped it over and over to recreate the paper. This could so easily be done with physical supplies with a stamp set or even by fussy cutting butterflies from another paper and lining them up on a background cardstock.

Master Forger Julene noticed swimming costumes in the embellishment pack.

She traced one around then cut them from coloured paper.
They could be used on layouts or cards.

Master Forger Lori used washi tape and stamps to forge 2 of the papers in the inspiration kit and to make a few die cut pieces. You can read more about it on her blog here.

And last but not least, Lisa made up a few paper clip bows and is delighted with the result.

"Counterfeit Kit Challenge friend Julie sent me a bow template some time ago which has proved so useful over the years. I copied it at original and then again at 80% to get two different sizes, cut those out and then traced round the shapes onto patterned paper. These were then cut out, folded and stuck together with strong double-sided tape to form the bow. I finished it off with some hot-glue gun adhesive on the back to attach some oversized paper clips. Ten minutes in total for these two cute clips! I would tweak my process a little for next time - erasing the pencil line on the back for example  - but I intend to make a handful more at different sizes and put my scrap paper basked to use!"

If you need some help with the bow shaped templates, this freebie link at Ash & Crafts might prove useful!
