Now on to my project! I've created a winter scene with two cute hedgehogs cozying up to each other trying to warm up with an Eggnog Latte! Hey Hedgehogs drink coffee right?

 I used the cute hedgehog stamps from Gerda Steiner Designs. Hedgehog with Latte and Hedgehog with sign. For each hedgehog I gave them opposite colors for their scarf and latte cup. That way the latte cup will pop and not get lost in the scene. 

I decided to use the leafy tree backdrop die from Lawn Fawn to set my scene. By cutting out the tree die and hill in white it gave it a more wintery look! 

One little trick that I did was I cut along the scarf line on the stamped image of hedgehog with sign to remove his head and then glued it on the stamped image of hedgehog with Latte. Just a little tip on getting more use out of these two stamps! You can visit my YouTube Channel to see the process video on this card. Just click here! SCRAPPINSTAMPERS 

I thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoy the hop!!
