Newton's Nook Designs Hedgehog Hollow Set - Naki Rager

They are such sweet images, I wanted to make it look like a children's book cover ;-)

I stamped this sweet, sweet hedgehog with a cute little ladybug with Sahara Sand on watercolor paper. It was water colored with my Stampin' Up reinkers. This was such an adorable image just stamped, but it was like they came to life after getting colored in!

I enjoyed this month's new release and I think this cutie is my favorite of all!

Okay, now my second card with this cutie!
Did you wonder why I only made one card with the Beautiful Leaves Set on day2?
Well, here it is, I couldn't share til today! ;-)

Newton's Nook Designs Hedgehog Hollow Set - Naki Rager

This little hedgie sitting in a tea cup is just too adorable!
I heat embossed the image with my glittery, light gold on glossy white cardstock, then again on watercolor paper. I fussy cut the water colored hedgie then paper pieced on the glossy one. The gorgeous leaves were also heat embossed with the light gold then water colored. Those rich fall colors certainly look beautiful with gold, don't they!?

I also heat embossed the sentiment "thankful" from the Beautiful Leaves set on vellum. I love this light gold emboss powder but it is not very visible on light colors. I mounted on snippet of orange ribbon but still can't see in the photos :-(
This fun background was made with this pierced circle die, isn't it awesome!?
