Today’s blog post will be a pretty quick one, but I still have a new product sneak peek for you. This time it’s the Happy Hedgehogs Stamp Set. This 9 piece photopolymer stamp set has 7 images that can be combined to make simple scenes. There’s also two sentiments to add to your projects. What’s particularly exciting about this set is that one of the two hedgehog images coordinates with the new Hedgehog Builder Punch. I have a lot of ideas for using both products, but first I just combined three of the stamped images for this sweet all-occasion gift tag.
I began my project by using my Paper Trimmer to cut a 3″ x 6″ piece of Very Vanilla Card. Next, with the long side at the top, I scored the card at 3″. Then I folded it along the scored line and sharpened the crease with a Bone Folder.
To turn the mini 3″ x 3″ card into a gift tag I needed to add a hole at the back using the Detailed Trio Punch. After opening up the card I placed it under the oval hole option on the punch with the crease just to the right of the centre line indicated on the punch. Then when I punched, the hole was on the back towards the top. I threaded some Very Vanilla twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack through the hole and tied it in a simple knot. Now I was ready to create the panel for the front.
First I cut a 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ piece of Very Vanilla Card. Then from the Happy Hedgehogs Stamp Set I chose the smaller of the two hedgehogs. Using Soft Suede ink I stamped him in the bottom right corner.
Next I chose the small butterfly image and stamped that close to the hedgehog’s nose using Highland Heather ink. Finally with Granny Apple Green ink I added the small grass image and it was ready to go together.
Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) I mounted the stamped piece onto a 2-5/8″ x 2-5/8″ piece of Soft Suede Card. Then with Stampin’ Dimensionals I added the assembled layers onto the front of the tag. In no time at all my sweet gift tag was finished.
I love how easy this was to create. There’s no actual colouring as it’s added simply by stamping the three images using different colour inks. I hope you like it.
Now I have to get back to my craft table as I have another project on the go. This one uses the Happy Hedgehogs Stamp Set and the coordinating Hedgehog Builder Punch. Watch out for the finished project in a future blog post.
Here’s a closer look at the Happy Hedgehogs Stamp Set. Enjoy…
