Hedgehugs

Yep…it’s Tuesday and this Tuesday it’s time for another SUO Challenge.  Our theme this time is to CASE a card from the catalog.  I chose one of of the Fox and Friends cards from page 105.

I decided to keep pretty close to the original sample.  I think maybe the card was not a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 size…maybe a little smaller so I added an extra layer.  I also switched the set to Hedgehugs.

Here’s the details…

  • Pear Pizzazz – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Pear Pizzazz – 3 3/4 x 3 3/4
  • Coffee Break dsp – FIVE pieces 3/4 x 3 1/4, add to panel, add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – stamp TWO tree stumps in Soft Suede, laying down hedgehog in Crumb Cake, standing up hedgehog in Smoky Slate, cut everything out
  • Whisper White – 5/8 x 2, stamp greeting in Basic Grey, cut into a banner
  • Garden Green – 5/8 x 2, cut into a banner
  • Layer everything together and add together using dimensionals

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see their wonderful creations!

Beautiful Day

Happy first day of February everyone!  On month of winter behind us…YAY!!!!

Here’s the details…

  • Calypso Coral – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded; stamp the dots using Caylpso Coral
  • Painted with Love dsp – two strips 1/4 x 5 1/4, add to card front top one aligned left, bottom one aligned right
  • Whisper White – 3 1/4 x 4 1/4, stamp celebrate in Melon Mambo and Let’s in Rich Razzleberry
  • Gold Foil – 3 x 1/2, add behind right side of panel and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Vellum – stamp butterfly using Versamark, gold emboss, color the BACK of vellum using Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo and Calypso Coral markers, cut out and add to card front
