MFT September Release Countdown Day 4

September 3, 2016

It's Day 4 of the MFT September Release Countdown. Today I'm introducing the new stamp set & Die-namics from my Birdie Brown line, Happy Hedgehogs!

The Happy Hedgehogs stamp set contains seven hedgehog images and several accessory images to create autumn scenes. Have a hedgehog stand/sit on a log or a tree trump, stack up the smaller hedgehogs to create a funny scene, fill the front of a card with stamped hedgehogs and nuts to show the recipient how much you love her/him... I have so many ideas!

For my card today I create a sweet autumn scene with combining the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set with the Birch Trees Die-namics.

I die cut a stitched rounded rectangle panel from Smooth White CS and did ink blending over it using Summer Splash, Banana Split, Pineapple and a little Orange Fizz Premium Dye inks. Then I dabbed some Tangy Orange ink using a sponge dauber to add more texture. I die cut the birch trees from Primitive White CS and the leaves from Pineapple and Tangy Orange CS. I dabbed the trees with a little Latte Premium Dye ink. After I adhered them to the inked panel, I added some white spots with a white pigment marker.

To create a grassy ground I cut Pineapple CS using the Grassy Hills Die-namics. I white embossed the sentiment on it before I dabbed Tangy Orange ink. The hedgehogs and nut were colored with Copics and cut out with the matching dies
I added a Hot Fudge panel underneath the main panel, then adhered it to a Tangy Orange card base.

And I'd like to show you that the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set works so well with the new Circle Spinner Channels Die-namics

Isn't it so fun and cute? I made this card for the September Release Class. You can see how I made this spinner card in a PDF that will be available on the MFT blog on the release day (September 6th).

All the new products will be available for purchase on September 6th at 10:00 pm EDT.
