A hedgehog adorned with small flowers? Why not! This stamp set is not only adorable but it has changed my thinking! I typically gravitate towards flowers and vintage looking images but I decided to purchase the Hedgehugs stamp set and I’ve had a ball creating with it. And how can you look at this image and not be ridiculously happy? ((smile))

I used the Lovely Friends stamp set for the beautiful script greeting on my card. This 23-piece photopolymer stamp set (also offered as a Bundle!) has a large array of different script greetings along with flower and border images. This stamp set is on the retired list and will be unavailable after May 31st or while supplies last.

I used the Wood Textures Designer Paper to cover the entire front of the card base. The varied wood tones make the perfect background for images and greeting while adding both a touch of color and texture.

I used a strip of designer paper from the Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Paper for a “grassy” looking border. Most Stampin’ Up! designer papers are double-sided allowing you lots of options.

I stamped the hedgehog on Thick Whisper White cardstock using Memento ink then colored using Stampin’ Blends. I’m a huge fan of the Stampin’ Blends. They are effortless and they provide professional coloring results. I mixed the Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends with the Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blends to achieve a color that closely related to Lemon Lime Twist.

I have several videos on using the Stampin’ Blends that will provide lots of tips and tricks:

The small flowers are from the Tree Builder Punch, also on the retired list and only available while supplies last. If you look closely you’ll notice they have a bit of a 3D look to them. I placed the punched shape on my Stampin’ Pierce Mat. Using the Stylus Tool (from the Simply Scored) I pressed in the center of the flower and gave it slight turn which caused the cardstock to bow and crease. I then used the Lemon Lime Twist marker to make a dot in the center then adhered them using a Glue Dots.

Customers with current Frequent Buyer Cards will have 3 months to continue to use, fill and redeem them.
