Hedgie Hugs

Hi!  How are you today?  In need of a hug?  Well, I have just the card for you!

Hedgehogs, Hugs, Love, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Occasions2018

Aren’t these little guys adorable?  This is the new stamp set Hedgehugs in the Occasions Catalog.  How cute would this be for a Valentine’s card or to wish someone a Happy Birthday?

The base of my card is Crumb Cake and the little flowers were stamped with Crumb Cake ink.  The Hedgehogs were stamped in Soft Suede on Whisper White card stock.  I used the Early Espresso watercolor pencil to add some shading on his body and then blended it with a Blender Pen.  The little flower he’s holding was colored with a Real Red Marker.  The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede as well.  The flower is colored with Real Red and Old Olive markers and stamped next to the sentiment.  It was punched out with the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch and layered on a 1 3/4″ Soft Suede Circle.  I added a thin strip of Burlap Ribbon to finish him off.

What do you think?  Could you use a hug?  If so, email me your address at: teresa.howe@verizon.net and I’ll send you a hedgie hug!

Team Stamp It Valentine’s Blog Hop

Hi!  Welcome to the Team Stamp It! Valentine’s Day Blog Hop!  I hope you are enjoying the projects we have prepared for you for Valentine’s Day!

I went a little non-traditional on my color scheme – hope you don’t mind.

SU! Love You Lots, Envelope Punch Board

My all time favorite hostess set is the Love You Lots set – the animals are just adorable and make great cards for any occasion.  Today I am using this little frog.  I used the new Watercolor Pencils to color him in along with a blender pen.  The hearts on the top of the card and on the tag for the box are punched using the Confetti Heart punch.  The heart on the sentiment is one of our Brights Enameled Embellishments.  I used solid black baker’s twine wrapped around 4 times as my ribbon.

Here is a close up of the card:

Here is the box – thanks to Michelle Long from the Artisan Design Team for the idea:

SU! Love You Lots, Envelope Punch Board

The box is made using the Envelope Punch Board as follows:

  •  Cut a 6×6 piece of Designer Series Paper
  • Score and punch each side at 2 1/8″ and 3 7/8″
  • Cut in to form tabs on two opposite sides
  • Fold on all score lines
  • Adhere tabs using Tear & Tape

Here is a picture of the box scored and the tabs cut:

The belly band around the box is a 7 1/2 x 2″ strip of Vellum card stock.  Score at 6 1/4″, 5″, 2 1/2″, and 1 1/4″.  After scoring, use the Scalloped Tag Topper punch to punch both ends.  Tie together and add a tag.

These boxes hold around 5 Hershey Chocolate hearts.

Love Tree

Hi!  Today I am playing along with this week’s Global Design Project challenge #GDP067  This week it is a theme challenge and it is to use a tree.

I decided to pull out my Vertical Greetings stamp set and make a Valentine’s Day card:

SU! Vertical Greetings

I thought the Heart Tree in a pot would be perfect!  What do you think?  I did use markers to color the image – Real Red, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip.  The sentiment is in Basic Black and Real Red.  In case you can’t tell, I trimmed off 1″ of the front and adhered my Designer Series Paper to the inside of the card.  A little different look.  To finish off the card, I used the Brights Enamel Shapes.

Sneak Peek!

Good morning!  Today I have a sneak peek for you as my pre-order from the Occasions catalog came yesterday and I couldn’t resist using some of the goodies I got!

BloomingHeart_small

This card uses products from the Love Blossoms Suite.  In this card, I used the Bloomin’ Love stamp set, Blushing Bride glimmer paper and the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper stack. (These products will be available to order on January 5, 2016) Paired it with the Blushing Bride Cotton Ribbon and some sequins from the Blushing Bride Sequin trim and there you have it.  A little bit of sparkle to brighten anyone’s day.  The sentiment is from the Six Sayings hostess set found in the Holiday Catalog – you still have time to get this set with a $150 order or host a catalog party before January 4th!

I also designed this card using the Global Design Projects Sketch for this week’s challenge – #GDP014  Such a pretty sketch that can be used to inspire so many different types of cards.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you enjoy a little sparkle in your day!
