This Little Piggy says farewell to Mojo Monday

It’s no secret that I love to follow sketches and one of my favorites is Mojo Monday.  Sadly this is the last sketch from that blog.

I used Zip Dry for the ribbon and popped up the piggy on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I was a little sad that this set was included in the retirement list because I just bought it and this is the first time I’ve had a chance to use it.  I made an anniversary card for my hubby.

Beautiful Branches Hedgehog

Could it get any cuter than this?!  I was at Stamp Share this weekend (a gathering of demonstrators under Susan Campfield) and Rachel Tessman demonstrated how to make this adorable hedgehog.  Well I had to google this right away and make my own.

Thoughtful Branches hedgehog. JPollockDesigns.Wordpress.com Stampin' Up!

Now if I could just figure out a way to glue down these intricate dies that Stampin’ Up! is coming out with lately.  I LOVE them but I’m no good at adhering them.

The hedgehog is made with an oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits as the base and the top of the tree from the Beautiful Branches framelits (the other half of the Thoughtful Branches bundle) laid on top.  The feet are a 3/4″ circle cut in half and the ears are cut from the Medallion punch.  The face is made with the Sweetheart punch and the eyes and nose are from the new Cookie Cutter Builder punch in the Holiday Catalog that demonstrators get to order early.  I’m also using the new Candy Cane Lane Designer series paper from the new Holiday Catalog.  You are going to love it!  Also, I inked all of the crumb cake pieces with crumb cake ink to give it a little more dimension.

I followed the sketch from Mojo Monday #461 for this card.

And here are two of the blogs that I found the hedgehog on.

Mojo Monday #443
