July Stamp of the Month - Happy Forever

Check out this CUTE card made by Margi Gilbertson, Director with Close to My Heart. She taught the Extravangza class - Irresistibly Adorable Ideas at Convention. She showed us several techniques, including the masking technique used on the little hedgehog. To make the hedgehog, Margi stamped him onto a white piece of cardstock 2 times.  She then cut the body out of one, and the fur out of the other.  She used a sponge dauber and Desert Sand ink to colore his body. For the fur, she used a sponge dauber with Chocolate ink and also a little bit of black for dimension.  Then she fit them together when attaching to the card.

The tie-dye effect was done by sponging with the NEW Cotton Candy, Pear, Sky and Smooth ink colors onto the card.  Then she splattered pure bleach with a toothbrush onto the card to get the bleaching.  

The word "LOVE" was stamped with My Acrylix Extreme Caps(D1250) using VersaMark ink and Clear Embossing Powder. This gives the letters a glossy shine.. She cut out the letters and adhered them to the card.  This cute little hedgehog stamp is July's Stamp of the Month - Happy Forever.   This set contains 9 stamps and can only be purchased during the month of July.  See my website for details.   (Thank you to Margi Gilbertson for allowing me to share her creation!)

  1. Hi Gina, Glad you liked my Happy Forever Tie-Dye card! Just wanted to share that the word LOVE is stamped on the white cardstock card with clear embossing and the hedgehog with black before the tie-dye colors are sponged. Make a mask by stamping a second hedgehog on a post-it note, cutting it out and cover the first hedgehog. Next sponge over with the tie dye colors. Keep the mask on for the splattering of the bleach. Finish up by the stenciling the Hedgehog's fur.
    Great job on the blog! Thanks again for sharing my groovy 70's hedgehog card.
