My share to today is the second of four cards from my August Pinkstampagne monthly card class. This cute hedgehog features the Limited Time Thoughtful Branches Bundle and Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack.
Here is my take on Judy Stickling’s inspiration I found on Pinterest. I changed it up a bit by rotating the orientation and changed the sentiment. Also, after looking at real life hedgehog pics I added the second larger Very Vanilla heart and used the Bow Builder Punch for his ears. Thank you Judy for such a fun and cute idea. Great “outside the box” thinking. He is just too stinkin’ cute and is front and center with this clean and simple design.
CARD BASE: The card base is Soft Sky layered with Sahara Sand and the mini dots design from the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack.
The oval his is mounted on is the largest from the Layering Ovals Framelits in Soft Sky. To add some (all important) shimmer I spritzed it with a mixture of rubbing alcohol and Frost White Shimmer Paint (vintage). [TIP: My mixture is 4 oz rubbing alcohol to 24 “drops” of the Shimmer Paint. This was popped with Dimensionals to add my first layer of dimension. Lol!
HEDGEHOG: His main body is one of the smaller ovals in Crumb Cake. This is topped with the Tree Trunk with Branches Die in Early Espresso from the Thoughtful Branches Bundle. The trunk was cut away then glued to the main body. The ears are the tail piece from the Bow Builder punch in Crumb Cake cut in half. The face is two smaller hearts from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits in Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake. The feet are a 1/2″ Circle cut in half. All the Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla pieces were sponged with Crumb Cake ink. His body, small heart face and feet were popped with Dimensionals to add another layer of dimension. Sweet! His eyes and nose are clear embossed Basic Black 1/4″ Circles attached with small glue dots.
SENTIMENT: The sentiment is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set. It is also stamped in Crumb Cake ink. Then punched with Classic Label punch to size. This is layered onto Soft Sky and Sahara Sand pieces punched from the same Classic Label punch. AND guess what??? This is popped with Dimensionals as well. [grin]
