MFT September Release Countdown Day 4



Welcome back to My Favorite Things September Release Countdown!

Day 4 features new images from Birdie Brown and you KNOW that there's
going to be cuteness involved. Meet Happy Hedgehogs and a peek at some
scalloped sweetness!


I think scallops make everything cuter--don't you? I cut white card stock
with the pointed scallop border and adhered it to a kraft card base that was
covered with dotted paper.




Two hedgehogs and mushrooms were colored and cut with the matching
dies. I added some grass to ground them, then popped them up on the panel.
I finished off the card with the sweet, punny sentiment.

Next up is a card using the new Chevron Grid Background stamp.
And oh yes, you know that I had to ink distress!


I gold embossed it on watercolor card stock and blended several distress
inks over it. To give the panel some dimension, I filled in some spaces with
 matching Copic markers, being careful not to touch the embossed lines.



I die cut the "thanks" twice from brown card stock, and adhered them
together to form a thicker sentiment. The rest of the sentiment was gold
embossed and trimmed into a banner. They were adhered to the card and
finished off with a sprinkling of gold sequins.

Be sure to visit today's countdown post at My Favorite Things to see more
peeks of the release and leave a comment there for your chance to win
a $75 prize! Thanks for stopping by today!
