Happy Saturday! I’m excited to bring you a video showing how to watercoloor a sweet little watercolor hedgehog card with Hedgehog Friends, along with more cards using the latest Pretty Pink Posh release!
Supplies for this project are linked at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links may be used at no cost to you.
The little set of hedgehogs has these little guys in a number of positions – I might need to make one catching butterflies with those little paws outstretched!
I use Daniel Smith watercolors….the sky is Cobalt Teal Blue, grass began with Serpentine, added Sap, and then added Green Apatite. For the hedgies, New Gamboge had a little Aussie Red Gold added to it, Quin Rose, and their bodies are Yellow Ochre.
Paulina just had her little bébé – so of course she has baby stamps in this collection! I made her a little card with Little One, coloring it with just BGs and keeping the card clean and simple. Hopefully she got it in the mail already! Note there are lots more baby-themed dies and stamps from Pretty Pink Posh, so if you have lots of mamas in your Facebook friends list….go peek around!
I used the sweet little Ladybug Friends set to combine with a waxflower plant from my Copic Wildflowers class – I think the propoortion is off but thats ok, right? Heehee!
These pretty Tulips are colored in an IGTV video here (Instagram’s video feature) !

Amazing cards! that baby rattle looks so real
I love all of these designs and had more nice things to say but the reCAPTHCHA box is blocked by the notify me checkbox and this is my third and last comment attempt.
I’m sorry – that’s a browser error, I don’t know how to fix others’ sites….
Beautiful cards. Each one more precious than the next

Wonderful cards. I especially love those gorgeous tulips. As always, your coloring is amazing.
Awesome cards Sandy. I love the adorable hedgehog friends, the baby rattle is so realistic and sweet.
The ladybug with the beautiful tiny flowers is so gorgeous as well as the Easter card.
And the colouring of your tulips is stunning!|
Thank you so much for all your awesome inspiration and have a wonderful day.
Oh Sandy, you’ve created such a beautiful array of cards & now I’ve had to increase my wish list. The rattle looks like it could pop off the page. I adore the little ladybug on the flowers & the tulips – wow! You are an artist in the truest sense of the word. I am so glad I receive your videos as I learn a bit each time I watch. Congrats to Pauline & her sweet baby boy!
So beautiful!! Thank you for sharing your creativity! I could watch you colour all day.
Great video. I like the tips on coloring the image.
Beautiful coloring and gorgeous set of cards. My favorite is the ladybug card.
All wonderful cards. The baby rattle and the tulips are my favorites. I saw the IG TV on the tulips – the glass appeared like magic.
Such beautiful cards, Sandy, especially the gorgeous ladybug creation!
Absolutely amazing cards, as always! Looking forward to watching the video too.
Oh wow Sandy these are amazing!!

Sandy, you are just the most talented person I know (or kinda know)! Just beautiful and the baby rattler is amazing! Love everything. Every little thing you do is magic!
Love your hedgehogs! Those glittery bunnies are pretty cute too!
Fabulous set of cards! I LOVE the baby card!!!
I just love your sugar coated bunnies!
This is such a nice release, my favorite is the stencil. Your card is so cute.
Absolutely Adorable cards!! I Love Pretty Pink Posh Stamp Sets & Dies! They have such sweet designs! God Bless & the Love of Christ to you all!!
The baby card is so adorable; love your coloring on it. The tulips are so awesome, very vibrant.
Love that cute sugar coated sentiment along with those sparkly bunnies. Great card.
Love the triple window card with the added dimension! And you can never go wrong with tulips! I think I either have cabin fever or Spring fever….Just not Covid-19 fever!
Thanks for the touch of spring to warm our souls.
Lovely range of cards with these products. Thanks for sharing this inspiration and the fab videos! Love you no matter how you pronounce words.
I love everything you create. I look forward to your videos.
So much to see on your post today Sandy! I just love all the different methods of coloring you have used here – they are all just beautiful!
As always I love “all” your cards. My fav is the squares. What a great way that the sentiment and glittered bunnies brings back Easter memories. I also love the jar for the tulips. I will be stalking IG to watch this coloring. tyfs
Looks like Spring is bustin’ out all over! Great cards. Always love watching you do watercolors. And, DUH, why didn’t I ever think to use the “‘Tis the Season” sentiment for other holidays than Christmas?!? Thanks for the nudge.
Wow! This release is so cute, and Sandy, you have outdone yourself today! Thanks for the inspiration!
Your cards are beautiful. I especially love the baby card and the bunny / egg card. Congrats to Paulina!
Love them all, the tulips are my favorite 🙂
Oh so cute, love these hedgehogs, especially in fun colours, so spring. Brilliant examples of all those new sets, adorning the baby rattle design. Stay safe & stay healthy x
Beautiful coloring as per usual! I LOVE the way you watercolored the hedgehogs!!!
I love the whimsy, Sandy! I need to try my hand at watercolorinng one of these days!
