Hedgehog Snowman

I didn't drop off the face of the earth, but have been nursing my back. I put it out this week and haven't been able to sit for long periods of time so my blog has suffered. Thanks for still sticking with me.

I made a couple of cards before my back went out and I will start to share them with you until I am able to create again.

This was a sketch challenge I did about a week ago for my groups. I enjoyed making this one it was fun to dig through old stamps and come up with something different.

Supplies needed:
Bashful Blue, Basic Black, Whisper White CS
White Craft Ink, Black Ink
Oval Scalloped punch
Crop-a-dile
Chalks
Black Eyelets

Directions:

I used Bashful Blue as my main card.

Then cut 2 pieces that are 1 3/4 x 4. I stamped all three pieces using snowflakes. 2 different sized and styled ones with Craft white ink. Then I layered the 1 3/4 x 4 inch pieces on black and cut around them so it has about an 1/8 on all sides. Then I cut out little tabs for the sides. They are approx. 3/4 x 1 1/4 so you have enough to go under the panels. With the cropadile I punched holes for brads. Added my brads and glued them to my panels. Now glue your panels to your card. With an oval or round scalloped punch stamp your image. In my case I used the Hedgehogs. Still love this set. Then colored them in and mounted them with dimensional dots. Super easy.

Christmas Hedgehogs is a retired set from SU. But, it was one of my favorites so he is still in my collection along with many other SU hedgehogs.

My image was chalked in and then burnished. So what you do to do this is turn your piece over after you are done chalking it on a white sheet of paper and rub so the chalk goes into the card stock real well. Less chance of smearing then.
