Today is special – just like you! (Hedgehugs)

Today is Special - Just like You!

Hi, I’m featuring a stamp set which was another of those that jumped out and said, “buy me” when I first saw the Occasions catalogue at OnStage last year. The Hedgehugs stamp set features two super cute hedgehogs as well as a bird, a squirrel, some scene building stamps and some lovely sentiments. I really like the font too. It is quite different.

I know sometimes some people can have difficulties with images such as these as they are solid images but you can still add your own flair and colouring through a number of different methods. For this card, I stamped the hedgehogs in Chocolate Chip ink and the tree trunk in Early Espresso. I used my Stampin’ Blends to add extra dimension to the images. You could also use a sponge dauber to apply different inks to the stamp, or you could colour directly onto the stamp with your Stampin’ Write makers.

To create the sky, I used a die from the Rainbow Builder Framelits Die set.  I cut out a border of clouds and then used a sponge dauber with Soft Sky ink to create the clouds.

Here’s the card…

Today is Special - Just like You!

This is a rather subdued colourway (and the photograph makes it look darker again) but I think it is really pretty.  You could always use brighter colours and it would completely change the look of the card.

Oh, and if you are wondering why the hedgehog is on top of the tree stump?  I thought it would look like the other hedgehog was presenting her with a flower.  How romantic!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you have a great day!

Happy Stamping, Kylie
