How cute is this? I dare you to not smile at these darling little hedgehogs. They've got a cheerful message and they're so darn cute you cant help but want to put them on everything.  

I love hedgehogs and even have a collection of them (stamps, figurines and more). So, of course I was completely over the moon when I saw the new "A Little Smile" single stamp (134351) in the new catalog...not a little smile, but a BIG smile!


Dawn's Cardmaking Tips

  • Image is stamped with the new Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad (coming soon), on Whisper White.  
  • I hand cut around the image - close to the end.  (Additional mattes measure 2-7/8" x 3-7/8" Real Red, 3-1/4" x 4-1/2" Crumb Cake)
  • I mainly used Stampin' Blendabilities (Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Coastal Cabana, & Skin Tone Assortment).  
  • As we don't carry a lighter or medium brown yet, I got out my Stampin' Write Crumb Cake Marker (120967) and Blender Pen (102845) to color the Hedgehog belly.  
  • Even the Rhinestone Jewels were colored using Stampin' Blendabilities!
  • Pattern paper is from the new Flowerpot Designer Series Paper (133698) - let me just say...cute!! (4" x 5-1/4")
  • Add to Whisper White card base of 4-1/4" x 11

I hope these little hedgehogs gave you A Little Smile.  

Enjoy~Dawn O
