From the Heart Stamp of the Month Challenge

The end of June is just around the corner and once again I am rushing to get all the progressive challenges done! This month at From the Heart the image is a lovely little hedgehog called Prickles, very appropriate since I work in the Hedgehog class!

Materials used:SAM_1771(watermarked)
From the Heart digi set – Prickles says Hello
Crafts Too Die – Presscut Frame It
stamping card
dotty card – Hunkydory
paper rose
Copic pens

Method:
I printed out a large version to fit my frame and a smaller version to use up the card. I coloured both images in with Copic pens. The large image I trimmed down to fit the frame. I cut the frame from the Hunkydory dotty card left over from one of their card kits and also cut the front of the card blank making sure that I did not cut the top fold. I glued the dotty frame ontop of the the cut card blank and then mounted the picture behind. Inside the card I used the insert to hide the back of the picture. Finally I attached a paper rose the front. I decided not to add a sentiment so that the card could be used for any occasion.

The second smaller image I turned into a pillow box.

Thank you for visiting. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, one son-in-law and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
