This weeks Coffee and a Card used the super cute Hedgehugs stamp set.
Available as wood mount or clear mount, they are a lovely fun set, with some super sentiments!
Our first card had a squirrel hidden inside a tree!
A panel of Early Espresso card stock had a ‘hole’ punched in it at one end. Laying this card onto a Very Vanilla card base, we drew around the circle with a pencil. This showed us where to stamp the squirrel. The Early Espresso card was then embossed using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing folder, and then attached over the stamped image. The toadstools were stamped across the bottom in Cherry Cobbler ink and some discontinued ribbon was attached across the top. The sentiment was stamped on Very Vanilla Card and then punched out. It was mounted on a scalloped circle punched in either Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green or Early Espresso. The top of this was scored, had redliner tape attached and ‘hinged’ over the squirrel. Finally a bow was made in the same ribbon and attached centrally to the ribbon at the top of the card.
The second card was adapted from a card by Natalie Oshea.
The card base is soft suede, the flowers stamped with Early Espresso ink across the bottom. Next the two hedgehogs were stamped on Whisper White cardstock (using the stamparatus to ensure we could re-stamp if the ink didn’t cover well enough on the first stamping) again with Early Espresso ink. The bodies were coloured with a caramel Promarker, and the flower coloured using a blender pen and Cherry Cobbler ink. This panel was adhered to the card base and a strip of Burlap ribbon was attached to the bottom.
The sentiment and flower were stamped on Whisper White, punched with the 1 1/2″ circle punch, and mounted on a die cut circle of Early Espresso. This was then added using dimensionals.
I know several hedgehog lovers and i’m sure this stamp will prove to be popular!
