Hello again.
Today I am back to share another card I made with the Henrietta the hedgehog stamp set from Technique Tuesday that was released this month.  This set is part of their Animal house collection. I absolutely love these sets, they all have a great variety of sentiments with images that are just so cute and easy to work with.

One of my favorite things to do with cards is create backgrounds. Don't get me wrong, I love and hoard pretty patterend paper. I just find it so satisfying to know that I made the 'whole' card. So whenever I see small stamps in sets, my first thought is....Background!
For this card I randomly stamped the mushroom on a 4.25 X 5.5" card panel with Memento's tuxedo black ink. I also stamped the hedgehog and a couple of extra mushrooms. I used prisma colour pencils to colour in the hedgehog and since I didn't want a white boarder I fussy cut it out with scissors. I used zig clean color brush markers to colour in the mushrooms. Once I was done all the clouring I used a wavy stitched die to cut out my panel. Next I used a semi circle die to cut a window out of the panel. I also cut a black boarder to frame the window. I used the inside piece and did some ink blending to make it look like a sky and ground.  I stamped my sentiment before I attached that piece to the card base and popped the panel up with foam tape. I attached the images inside the window as well as some grass I die cut to add some interest.

Well, thats it for my card today. I do hope you like it.
Thanks for stopping by.

Sorry I've been a little prickly.

Hello, hello!

Today I am sharing a fun card that I made with the newest edition to the Technique Tuesday Animal house collection, Henrietta the Hedgehog. This set was so much fun to work with. I just LOVE all the sentiments in this set.

For this card I used the mirror image stamping technique. I first stamped the hedgehog image onto  Neenah white cardstock with Momento Black ink. I then stamped the image onto a solid rubber stamp and then used that to stamp the image again onto my cardstock.  This creates a mirror image. 
I also stamped the mushroom image onto the same piece of cardstock. Once everything was stamped, I coloured all the images in with copic markers. This set does have matching dies but since I created a mirror image I needed to fussy cut them so that they all looked the same.
For the background I covered a 4.25 X 5.5" panel of white cardstock with masking paper and sketched out a hill. I cut the hill out and used the masks to do some ink blending. Once I was happy with the intensity of the blending I splattered some ink and water onto the blending to create the splattered effect you see. I wanted to create a sandy ground for them to be standing on. I then used a scalloped die to cut out the panel in the size I wanted. Next, I stamped my sentiment directly onto the panel and adhered the images onto the panel with clear foam squares. Lastly, I popped the panel up onto a plain white card base with some foam tape.  

I really like the way this turned out, and I'll probably be glad I have this on hand when the need to apologize arrises. ;)
Thanks for stopping by.
I hope you enjoyed my card.
