Want To Hibernate | Hedgehog Stamp

Hello! We hope you are having a lovely weekend. Lynda is here on the blog today with a fantastic handmade card created with our *NEW* HEDGEHOG HUGS and TOTALLY TOADSTOOLS stamp sets and THE FOREST stencil… hedgehog stamp handmade card


I don’t know about you but I get so excited by Autumn. I love the rich colours and cosy feeling it brings. So when I saw the brand new release from Visible Image I was just thrilled to be amongst the first to get to play with them as they are just perfect for the season.

This card showcases the set called ‘Hedgehog Hugs’. This cute little guy is just adorable don’t you think?

I started with a background sheet that I created with Distress Ink by applying to my glass mat, spritzing with water and dabbing it into. Once dry I used a circle mask and inked around the outer edge to create the effect of a setting sun.



I then used my gelli plate and the Forest stencil to create a woodland backdrop. This was achieved by applying a thin layer of brown paint to the plate, laying the stencil over the top, and using a piece of copy paper to lift the paint between the trees. I then lifted the stencil, revealing the tree shapes, and placed my backing paper down over it to lift the image to it.



I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the hedgehog and leaf piles, and also one of the toadstools from the incredible ‘Totally Toadstools’ set, and using 3D gel glue created my  woodland scene.



Doesn’t he look cosy?!

Toadstools Stamps | Nature Heals | Card

Hello! Have you checked out our new stamps yet? Do you have a favourite? One of Jane’s absolute favourites from this release is our TOTALLY TOADSTOOLS stamps, and we adore the very first card Jane created with these fabulous stamps… and nature heals sentiment


Good Afternoon, today I could not be more excited as I am able to share my first make with the brand new autumn release! OMGoodness you are going to love them. They are so “me” and there is something for everyone from cute hedgehogs (or hedgepigs as I have always called them!) a squirrel with acorns to positive and inspiring words to toadstools, mini stamps and most exciting a backing stamp for Artist Trading Cards! Wow!

I have made samples with the all the new release and it was a really tough call for me to choose just 1 for today, but choose I had to and I went with one of the 3 new nature sets.


Totally Toadstools


Totally Toadstools Stamps Set | Nature Heals | Mushrooms | Fungi | Grasses


I have a real “thing” about all things fungi (plus mermaids, strawberries, hedgehogs, pigs, seashells and the Man in the Moon, yes I know I am mad!) and I have wanted Mark, aka Mr Visible Image to design a fungi set for a long time. I was so delighted to see it come to life and it really is everything I love about toadstools. The beautiful nature sentiment works perfectly too.



This is what I got up to


I wanted to make a really organic, fungi inspired background. There is nothing better for this than Yupo paper and alcohol inks, so that’s what I did. I got out my inks and dripped…



and dropped…



and mixed…



and blended until I had achieved the organic fungi inspired background I wanted…



I stamped lots of the toadstools onto different offcuts of inked card and cut them out. Then I chose the ones I wanted to use.



I added some white gel pen and then decoupaged them (which you will see in the finished photos)



I decided I wanted more of a 3D card so I cut out the centre of my Yupo paper



and backed it with another piece of yellow inked card. I stamped some of the foliage inside. I then added some 3D foam tape and stuck it under the Yupo.

I also cut an upstand from inky card and repeat stamped some more of the foliage, cutting around some and also cutting one piece out to layer up with and to add depth.




I then assembled my focal, adding the toadstools, which I decoupaged.



finally adding the wonderful ‘nature heals’ sentiment at the base of the toadstool stamps.



I stuck the focal in place and matted and layered my card.


Here it is…

and 1 final shot…

I really do adore this set and I have so many plans for future makes using it too. It really is a must have in your crafting stash and works so well with the new hedgehog and squirrel sets too.


It would be lovely to see you over in the friendly Visible Image Facebook group! You will see lots of gorgeous makes by the Design Team and customers to inspire your own creativity. You will also be able to join in with the monthly Artist Trading Card (ATC) swap which has been such fun.

Bye for now,

Jane x




This is an absolutely stunning card! The focal image of the toadstools and grasses looks wonderful against the amazing alcohol inks background, very fungi-like indeed!  Thank you Jane ♡
