Sending "Hedge-hugs"!

I always need a few "thank you" notes on hand. The traditional notes are fine, but as a card maker I like to take it up a notch! I used two JFF Stamp images and a sentiment stamp on my card AND added a "lace" embellishment for the monthly challenge. I feel so accomplished! 😊

Club Scrap In Bloom card stock and floral gem embellishments. JFF Stamp images. 

I colored the Hedgehog Topiary stamp with multiple coordinating colors of Faber Castell Big Brush markers and used the Marker to Stamp Technique.

The Stamptangle Leaf Flourish added a nice border.

I inked the leaf stamp with Memento New Sprout ink and stamped using a Tim Holtz Stamping Platform. Then I added some Memento Bamboo Leaf ink to the stamp in a few key areas, for shading and contrast, and stamped again. I also inked the edges of the card stock and purposely added some heavier inking underneath the topiary image to look like grass. I used a Swiss Dot Cuttlebug embossing folder and inked the raised dots with Bamboo Leaf ink as well. Lastly, I stamped the You're So Sweet sentiment stamp on blue card stock using Club Scrap's white pigment ink. I punched a strip of coordinating card stock with a lace border punch from my stash and attached to the focal image panel.

The April monthly challenge will end on Monday May 6. Add some lace to your project and join us for a chance to win a gift certificate from JFF Stamps!
