Is he not the cutest little hedgehog?  Do you know what Stamp set he is made from?  The Painted Harvest!  I love how that stamp set is so versatile!  You can make sunflowers, sunsets, sunrises, Christmas wreaths and hedgehogs, just to name a few.  

I will admit this card I used a lot of different products on.  I usually try not to use more than 2, sometimes 3 stamp sets on a project and this one I used four.  I used the Painted Harvest for his head, Foxy Friends for his face, Butterfly Basics for the sentiment and A Little Wild for the grass.  You can easily use other stamp sets that you have to make him.  The only one that I feel is the most important is the Painted Harvest.  That gives you a great foundation to work from. 

To make this project you will need the following products:

Early Espresso Cardstock #119686

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 2 7/8" x 2 7/8"

Crumb Cake Cardstock #120953

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Pear Pizzazz Cardstock #131201

  • cut at 2" x 5 1/2"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 3" x 3"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Wood Textures Designer Series Paper #144177

  • cut at 1 3/4" x 4"

I made this card a little different than I usually do.  On the small white piece of paper I stamped my sentiment near the bottom of the paper.  You want to make sure you leave enough room for the Stitched Shapes (Square) Framelit to cut.  I then cut it out it with the framelit without doing any of the other stamping.  The reason is, I wanted to make sure I had enough room for both the sentiment and hedgehog.  With stamping the image first and then cutting it, I knew how much room I had to stamp the hedgehog.  The Painted Harvest stamp set is photopolymer so you can see exactly where you are stamping which makes it so nice!

Before you stamp your hedgehog you have to put a piece of post it note paper where you want the line to be for him to be peeking over.  Keep the paper there until you are totally done stamping him.  I first stamped the big flower stamp in Painted Harvest with Crumb Cake ink that I stamped off first.  Then the small flower stamp with Soft Suede ink.  To make sure I had enough room to stamp his face, I made sure that the center of the stamp (the circle) was a little above my post it note.  When you are done with these steps you can remove your post it note.

The face was stamped with a stamp from the Foxy Friends stamp set in Early Espresso ink.  The grass I used Pear Pizzazz and a stamp from the A Little Wild stamp set.  I punched out the leaves using the Pear Pizzazz cardstock with the Leaf Punch that was carried over from the Holiday catalog.  

The background is made with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder and then I added a strip of paper from the Wood Textures designer series paper.  Another very versatile product.  So many things you can do with wood paper.  

I popped up the Early Espresso square so the leaves could fit better underneath of it.  

I know this was a lot of different steps for this card.  I hope I explained all of them to you that you can now make this card for yourself.   If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
