Hedgehog Stamp | Handmade Autumn Card

Hello and happy weekend to you! Sharon is here on the blog today with a stunning Autumn card created with the gorgeously cute curled up hedgehog stamp from our HEDGEHOG HUGS set…


Hello there. today I’m sharing a card using the BRAND NEW ‘Hedgehog Hugs’ stamp set from the Autumn Visible Image release.


This is called ‘sleepy hedgehog’.

I’ll get right to how I made this card…


First stamp the leaves in various shades of distress oxide ink. I confess I didn’t use all of these, but I wanted a choice of the base colour.



Next colour them in with some marker pens and fussy cut them out.

Set aside for later.



Stamp the hedgehog onto a panel the same size as your card front and heat emboss with clear embossing powder, then colour him in with marker pens.

Make sure you know where to place him so that he is at the bottom just above the frame that you will use.



Take some ripped paper and blend some hills and sky into the background using distress inks.



Stamp the grass around the hedgehog.

Take the small tree from the VI Minis #1 set and stamp this in first and second generation ink, to represent some tree branches.



Die cut a frame border for the little scene and stamp and heat emboss the sentiments onto it.

Secure this frame to the scene with foam tape.

Add the leaves to the frame and add a few falling from above too – use 3d foam pads to attach those.

Then take some coloured stickles and add leaves to the bare tree branches and highlight a few of the leaves with a clear stickles too.



And that’s it. Your card is made …..once the stickles have dried ūüėČ

Moonlit Autumn | Winter Tree Stamp

Hello! We hope you are well. Jane is here on the blog today with a beautiful card featuring the winter tree stamp from our VI MINIS #1 stamp set with our ‘Believe in Your Mind’ stamp, to create a wonderful moonlit Autumn scene…


Good Afternoon

The new autumn release is now for sale worldwide and has gone down a storm. There are 9 gorgeous new sets to choose for and if you have been sleeping under a log (with the cute hedgehog) and missed them do check them out on the website. I have already shared lots of my makes with the 3 nature sets so I thought I would share something different today.

I used one part of the gorgeous new Create With Your Soul A7 size set . This emotive sentiment was written many years ago by Helen, aka Mrs Visible Image and was a best seller. It has been updated and this new variation is now in 3 parts, rather than a single stamp, which makes it so versatile. You can use any part or all 3!


love with your heart | believe with your mind | create with your soul | sentiment stamp | clear | rubber


I teamed it with the delightful tree and birds from the¬†VI minis #1¬†set. This a a set with some of their iconic stamps…. in ATC or mini size. I am hoping to see lots more of these sets in the future.


ATC size stamps | miniatures | feather | butterfly | tree | seahorse | clear | rubber | stamp



I wanted to capture a moonlit autumnal moment so I created a distress ink background first.

I took a square of super smooth 300gsm card stock. I used salvaged patina, kitsch flamingo and dusty concord inks. I masked off a moon after I had added a little smudge of kitsch and patina ink and then blended out from the moon starting with kitsch, then patina and finally dusty colours.¬† I then ripped some copy paper to make the “hills” and added a little more patina and dusty ink colour.


This was my finished background.



I then stamped the tree in Versafine clair ink



with the birds flying out.



As the¬†Create With Your Soul¬†set is in 3 parts so you can mix and match as you feel, or use all 3 parts. I chose to you just the “Believe With Your Mind” part as it really fitted the scene I had created. I stamped it just under the moon and clear embossed it for extra texture and shine.



Finally I matted and layered my card.


Here it is



A close up, where you can see I added a little shading under the tree.



and one final shot




I really enjoyed created my moonlit card and hope it will inspire you too.

Do check out social media too you will find me on instagram where I share many more of my makes and sneak peeks than I have time to blog.


Bye for now,

Jane x

Hedgehog Hugs Stamp | Forest Stencil

Hello! We have Stempelfrida here on the blog today with a fantastic card created with our *NEW* HEDGEHOG HUGS stamp set and THE FOREST stencil…


The temperatures are dropping and it’s raining again and again. I wonder if autumn is already here. But the hedgehogs still need to build up a cushion and feed on snails and worms. Besides, they need big piles of leaves to nestle under. So, dear sun, stay a little longer with us and keep us warm. Until then, I send hedgehugs with this sweet representative.


hedgehog hugs stamp | leaves | forest stencil | handmade card


I have put the cute hedgehog from the set “Hedgehog hugs” of Visible Image in front of a tree background in scene, which I made with the stencil “The Forest”.

To do this, I first stamped the hedgehog and a second time on non-permanent stickers to use it as a mask.



I coloured the good print with Copics.

Next I fussy cut the mask of the hedgehog by hand and glued it on the colored hedgehog.

Then I attached the stencil over it with washi tape and wiped the blue background with Distress Oxides.

Afterwards I sprayed water drops on it.




After I removed the stencil of the forest and the hedgehog mask, and the background was well dried, I traced the edges of the trees with black.

I stamped the leaves several times, colored them with Copics and fussy-cut them.

I put a design paper on the card background and painted dots on the edges with a sakura pen
