    Faux Neon Friday-This Little Piggy Birthday Card

    Happy Friday!

    I have to admit. I wasn't quite sure how I would use this stamp for Faux Neon Friday, but I think I did a good job of figuring it out in the end! 

    For this card, I am using the This Little Piggy and Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp sets from the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. I'm also using the coordinating Balloon Bouquet Punch! 


    I started by stamping the flying pig image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I used the Smoky Slate and Powder Pink Stampin' Write Markers to color the pig and used the paper snips to cut him out!




    I used the spotted balloon stamp from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set, along with the coordinating ink, and stamped a balloon on the Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist, Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie card stock.  I used Bermuda Bay ink to stamp the Hooray balloon onto Bermuda Bay card stock.  I used the small balloon on the Balloon Bouquet Punch to punch them out. 



    I used tape to adhere the baker's twine to the back of each balloon and to tape it down to the card layer. I wrapped the end around the pig and adhered the pig using dimensionals.  I added a baker's twine blow and faux stitching and polka dots to complete the card.

    Thank you so much for stopping by! Be sure to print the recipe and check out the video below or over at youtube!

    This Little Piggy in a Wood Crate

    Hi everyone!

    Today's card idea popped in my head one night and I knew that I had to get it done as soon as possible!  I am using the new This Little Piggy stamp set and Wood Crate Thinlits from the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.


    This may be the first time in my life that I've ever purposely distressed a card, but I really love it. Let me walk you thru the steps. I started with a card base and layer using the new Very Vanilla Thick Card Stock. I am super stoked to finally have 2 neutral card stocks in a higher weight for card bases!


    I used the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the layer and I used a piece of the Wood Textures DSP and the Wood Crate die to cut it out! I also cut out a Powder Pink heart using the heart die from the Wood Crate set. I used a piece of paper towel and Crumb Cake ink to add the distressing to the brick! 

    I stamped the cute pig and sentiment using Early Espresso ink onto Powder Pink card stock. I used my paper snips to trim out the pig and the Powder Pink Stampin' Write Marker to color in her ears and nose!

    It was a really simple card, but I think it turned out adorable.  I added 2 bows as a finishing touch!

    Thank you so much for stopping by! Be sure to print the recipe and check out the video below or over at youtube!

    This Little Piggy with Embossing Paste Clouds

    Hi everyone!

    I am so stinkin excited for this week's stamp set!  I will be making 3 card using the This Little Piggy stamp set from the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  This set is so adorable and I am in love!!

    I love the flying pig image and I knew that I wanted to pair that with the new Pattern Party Decorative Mask and the Embossing Paste.  Let me show you how to create a really cute, cloud background!


    I started this card with a Smoky Slate card base that measures 4 1/4 x 11 and it was scored at 5 1/2. The inside layer is of course Whisper White and it measures 4 x 5 1/4. The Soft Sky layer measures the same.

    I used a grid mat to protect my surface and a piece of washi tape to tape down the blue card stock. Next, I laid the mask on top and lined it up where I knew I wanted the clouds. I used the Embossing Paste and a Palette Knife to spread it on the card stock through the mask. *This steps is much clearer when you watch the video linked below.*



    As the background dried, I stamped the little pig image onto the stitched circle. I used the largest circle from the Stitched Shape Framelits and the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circle Framelits for my focal pieces. After stamping the pig, I added the happy birthday sentiment from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous  and colored the pig image using the Powder Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin' Write Markers.


    Once the background was dry, I added the Powder Pink 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon and used Stampin' Dimensionals to add it to the card base. I also adhered the focal panel with dimensionals!  I tied a bow and adhered it with glue dots.

    I really love how this card turned out!  Is this stamp set on your wish list? Let me know in the comments!
