Good Morning!! It is very crisp here in NY. The temperature is below zero. I little too cold for me. I don't mind the snow but this bitter cold is not very comfortable. Since my car is in the shop anyway, I will be staying indoors all day.

Today I would like to share a Valentine card that I made. I am a little behind on making my Valentine's Day cards. I need to do a lot of catch up. I also want to do some challenges on Splitcoast.

This card is made using a retired set from Stampin Up known as Hedgehog Happiness. I colored the image on very vanilla paper with gamsol magic. and sponged the edges with burgundy ink. The tree branches were stamped with a stamp from another retired set from Stampin UP : Touch of Nature. I had wanted to emboss the image and make the background cracked glass but it made the paper look too yellow for the hedgehogs. Leaving the hedgehogs white made them stick out to much from the background so I ended up just glittering them. This card ended up being a lot of trial and error. I had fun but I took a lot of time on it. The image is paper toled in some places and layered in others. I love this layout using the Top Note Die from Stampin up and the hodgepodge hardware. There is a ton of sewing and layers on this card.
Card Recipe:
Stamps: Stampin up: Hedgehog Happiness, Warm Words, Touch of Nature (all retired) inside is stamped with Love You Much hearts
Paper: Parisian Summer pack (Stampin Up), Stampin up Textured CS
Accessories: prisma color pencils, mineral spirits, sponge, burgundy ink, burgundy thread, Martha Stewart Heart border punch, pink pirouette striped ribbon from Stampin Up, hodgepodge hardware.
Thanks so much for stopping by. It is time to get back to stamping!!! Have a great day!!
