Friday hedge-hugs!

Happy Friday crafty people!  I hope you have had a wonderful week.  I’m back with a couple of cute cards today.  I made these two hedgehogs using the Tonic Studios Harry the Hedgehog die set.  I decided to make one Harry and I used the bow from the Frankie Fox set to make a little Harriet too!


I couldn’t decide which I preferred so they both ended up on a card.  I used a leaf background die (also from Tonic studios) and a balloon die from First Edition Craft (Party dies set).  I added a stripe of patterned paper to match with the bow or tie and a stamped sentiment.  The sentiments all came from the Happy Hedgehogs set from MFT.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Alphabet Challenge – A is for Animals

Simon Says Stamp – Animal Antics

Cupcake Inspirations – Woodland Animals

My time to craft – hedgehog

I hope these make you smile today.  Have a wonderful weekend when it comes.

Magical dragons

Happy hump day crafty people!  How’s your week going?  I hope all is well and you are finding some creative time in your week.  Today I’m sharing a card which I am entering in the Back to Basics challenge.    This time the prompt is to use paper piecing in a project.

I had a flip through my stamps and decide to use this cute dragon from a MFT set.  Like many crafters I’m sure, I have a lot of corners and scraps of patterned paper so I pulled out a pretty green piece that I could use for the dragon and a spotty piece for a balloon.  Once I had stamped the dragon I added some alcohol ink and then fussy cut him out.


The white panel was part of a gift with Die Cutting Essentials magazine.  I used a blending tool to add some mustard seed distress ink.  I spritzed it with water and blotted it before sticking down the dragon and his balloon.  I mounted the panel on some yellow card to compliment the ink.  To finish it off I heat embossed the sentiment on dark green card stock (another wee left over scrap!) and added a strip of glitter card.

I hope you like this little sunny card and thanks for popping over to the Ginger Ninja Crafts blog.
