July Stamp of the Month Bloghop

Hello Hoppers! If you hopped here from Dawn Heuft's Blog you're on the right tract.

The July Stamp of the Month is Happy Forever (D1423) with these adorable little hedgehogs on it. For my project, I stamped the hedgehog with the kite and colored it in with copics. Then I used my spellbinders oval die to punch him out using the "out of the box" technique. I will post the directions at a later date.
The scalloped background is a scalloped oval from spellbinders. The pink and green papers are from Unforgettable paper pack.


Now hop on over to Krista Ritskes' blog and see what she has in store for you. Happy Hopping!!!


  1. Well. . . now I really need to know about this "out of the box" technique, because this card is stinkin cute :) Thanks for sharing! Nice to meet you Carol!

  2. Wonderfully colored! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Very cute. It would help if we could see it a bit bigger. Great job, though!

  4. Cute card. Love the colors - can you make it bigger to see details?

  5. I love the paper pack that you used for this and how the colours go together really nicely. I am also partial to the whimsy on the kite. Thanks for sharing.
