Happy Wednesday! Today's project features the cute Hedgehugs stamp set. This stamp set has some fun animal images and I've been wanting to use it for awhile. Last week I had a "Critter" challenge for my team and I figured this would be the perfect stamp set to use.
Early Espresso card base 5.5" x 8.5" scored at 4.25"
Real Red layer 3.75" x 5"
Gold Foil layer 3-5/8" x 4-7/8"
Wood Textures DSP layer 3.5" x 4.75"
- I used the Wood Textures Designer Paper to add a more realistic feel to this card.
- Using my Stamp-a-ma-jig helped me get perfect placement of my hedgehog. After stamping him in Crumb Cake, I used a blender pen to lightly spread the ink over his belly and face. I also used a blender pen to color the flower in Real Red ink.
- I finished the card with a bow using Linen Thread. This added additional texture and an earthy touch.
On a side note...yesterday, we celebrated my pup Watson's 2nd birthday! His actual birthday is April 6th but since I was out of town for Stampin' Up!'s OnStage event that day, we decided to celebrate when I returned. He had a great time playing outside and going for a walk. We had planned to also let him take out his swimming pool and splash around a bit but the evening went by too fast. Maybe we can give him some pool time later this week or on the weekend. We finished off his birthday celebration by singing Happy Birthday and giving him a delicious (I assume it was delicious...he sure ate it like it was) Pup-Pie! I love how happy he looks in the picture with his pie! ♥♥♥
