The August kit for The Hedgehog Hollow has arrived and it is full of global love! La-La Land Crafts created two exclusive stamp sets this month - Looking Sharp and Sending Hedgehugs. The Hedgehog Hollow also created a companion stamp set called Global Love, which has images of the UK, USA, and Australia. Watercolor pencils from Marvy Uchida will make creating a delicate scene fun and easy, and long-term subscribers will receive Tonic Studio's Funky Tape Runner.
I immediately thought of this card idea upon seeing the box contents. The concept is simple but sweet. I considered making our wee hedgie a magnet, but elected instead to use foam tape.
I created my own patterned paper using images from Global Love and Sending Hedgehugs (the flower and sunburst images), stamping directly onto my card base with grey pigment ink. I wanted to create a shadow for the "L VE" so I stamped in the same grey ink, then shifted the stamp over so I could double emboss the letters. I stamped them in VersaFine Onyx Black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder, twice. I wanted them to stand out bold against the background. The sentiment, "Sending Hedgehugs", was stamped in the same black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder on a strip of the textured reddish pink paper from the kit. I stamped, embossed, and watercolored the hedgehog from the smaller set, attaching a wee heart seal for the envelope. This sweet prickly fellow was mounted onto the card front with foam tape, as was the sentiment strip.
