Howdy!  It’s Jill of Jill Cameron Creations here with a fun card using stamps from the November Hedgehog Hollow monthly subscription box.  There are two stamp sets included in the box.  One set of stamps is Christmas themed, the other is not.  Today, I’m using the not Christmas themed stamps.

There are so many things I love about these stamps but one thing I totally love is how well these stamps pair with products I already have.  When I opened this month’s box and saw the stamp set with the family and all the critters, I instantly thought this family got a new puppy or adopted from the shelter.  I created this card with that thought in mind.

While I did use products from other companies to create this card, the family and the critters are what makes this card sing.  I stamped the family members on Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock using Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink.  I’m not a huge fan of fussy cutting so I use my PixScan mat and die cut the images with my Silhouette Cameo 3.  I love that this gives me the border around the images so it looks like the images have coordinating dies.

I also wanted to make sure the images retained the hand-drawn cartoony feel so I didn’t apply much pressure when I stamped the family and the critters.  This allowed some of the white of the paper to show through.

I Copic colored each image.  I colored the boys in blue and the girls in pink.

The rest of the card is Copic colored die cuts from My Favorite Things and some patterned papers from my stash.  I put the background together on the card base then I popped up the family and the dog using some foam tape.

I am super impressed with how well these stamps look paired with other products from another company.  That’s something that I look for when I’m making decisions for my craft purchases.  This is a set of stamps you’ll get a lot of mileage out of.  Awesome sauce!!!
