Stampin’ Up! Happy Hedgehogs for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Theme Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Theme.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Happy Hedgehogs Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Design A Daydream Designer Series Paper and the 2022-2024 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is our theme for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Design A Daydream DSP to a Mint Macaron card base. I adhered a strip of the 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to the card front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the hedgehog image from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I masked the image using the Stampin’ Up! Masking Paper and stamped the tree image from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set over the hedgehog image in tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the butterfly image from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the hedgehogs’ nose. I colored the images using my Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Ivory, Mint Macaron, Pale Papaya, Soft Suede, Soft Succulent, So Saffron and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image our using the 4th largest Deckled Rectangle Dies. I adhered the image to a Pale Papaya mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest Deckled Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems (available July 1st) to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the mushroom and bird images from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the images in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent, Soft Suede, So Saffron and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the hedgehog and butterfly images from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Ivory and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Design A Daydream DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Happy Hedgehogs Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be working all day Saturday and have Sunday off.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Happy Hedgehogs Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Sunshine & Rainbows 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today. This DSP is a FREE Sale-a-bration item with a qualifying $50.

I started by adhering 2 panels of the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP to Bermuda Bay Mats. I adhered the layered panels to the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment, mushroom, bird & hedgehog images from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Petal Pink, So Saffron & Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and then to the front of the small Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few of the Brushed Brass Butterflies to the artwork.

On another panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment, butterfly and hedgehog images from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Balck Ink. I colored the images in using my Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake, Petal Pink, Pool Party and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and then to the inside of the small Pool Party card base. I wrapped a piece of Pool Party 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon around the large card base and tied a bow. I adhered the small card base to the small right panel of the large card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the tree image from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the 2 hedgehog images from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set on the envelope front and colored them using my Crumb Cake, Petal Pink and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Sunshine & Rainbows DSP to the envelope flap.
