Penny Black Stickeroos?


Stickers . . . can you believe these are stickers? Yup . . . Penny Black Stickeroos. I have no idea what a hedgehog even is . . . and I don't know that I would like to meet one in person . . . but I think these little Penny Black hedgehogs are darling. I needed to make some more cards that can be sold at Memory Creek and I can't have any Stampin' Up! images which pretty much counts out my whole stamp collection. And I don't really want to invest in a lot of stamps that I won't use very much, so when I saw these cute little stickers I thought they just might work.

The card base is SU's Real Red and the designer paper is from Crate Paper's Samantha line. Those little red dots are Cloud Nine Rain Dots. I love them because you just peel and stick and you don't have to punch holes to stick the brads through. The little hedgehog is cut with a Marvy Mega circle punch and layered on top of a Marvy Giga scalloped circle punch from the reversible Samantha paper. The sentiment is from my computer printed in red ink and printed out on SU's Whisper White cardstock.
So . . . although this card may look difficult to make . . . it was pretty easy. No stamping!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

Hedgies are tiny-like itty bitty kitties. The are spikey but soft and roll into balls and love sand to play it and I want one! I really like Penny Black and she also makes incredible flower stickers http://www.stickersgalore.com/store/42,,0,1,c,51300/ have fun looking!
