Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! One of the cutest stamp sets in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog is the Stampin’ Up! Happy Hedgehogs bundle. With the sweet little hedgehogs and friends, it’s the perfect set for lighthearted Spring critter cards. I didn’t need to use the punch for my card today, but it was fun to stamp and color this little scene. You can find the currently available supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.
We have a theme challenge this week with the theme of butterflies or bugs. Even though I have a hedgehog, I do have a butterfly too, so I think I meet the criteria.
I adhered a panel of the Beauty of the Earth designer series paper to the front of an Old Olive card base. I stamped the sentiment, tree, hedgehog, butterfly and grass from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Hedgehogs photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on a Basic White panel. I colored the scene with Old Olive, Flirty Flamingo, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Petal Pink, Balmy Blue and Pale Papaya Stampin Blends.
I lightly applied Balmy Blue ink to the sky with a blending brush, and applied Old Olive to the ground with another brush and adhered the panel to a Misty Moonlight mat with liquid glue. I wrapped the bottom with a length of Misty Moonlight cotton ribbon and tied the end with linen thread.
I adhered the panel to the card front with dimensionals and finished the card with three Misty Moonlight square gems.
For the inside, I stamped the little butterfly from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black in the top corner of a Basic White panel and colored it with Balmy Blue and Pale Papaya Stampin Blends. I adhered a strip of Beauty of the Earth DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
