Piggy Best

Hi everyone,


I have created a card today which suits a couple of challenges.


The sketch from Stampin Queen’s Sketches and an animal theme from There She Goes you had to use the sketch, unfortunately I missed adding my card but regardless I had fun.


I also decided to try the challenge from Simon Says which was to use 3 different papers. 


You know this is not as easy as it sounds, well for me it was a challenge.  Layering cardstock I find easier then layering 3 different papers. 


In the end I decided to use the Cheerful Treat DSP pack and the piggy image from the Button Buddies stamp set.


I took colour inspiration from the DSP pack which is  Concord Crush, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Bashful Blue, Lucky Limeade and Whisper White.


I stamped the little piggy in Melon Mambo and then used the 1-1/4” (3.2 cm) Circle punch for his body, which is one of the layers of DSP. I then layered him on the stamped image.


I stamped the image again in Melon Mambo and then punched his nose out with the small circle punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. 


His little body and nose have been added to the card with Dimensionals to give him a little bit of depth.





Can’t you see that he is smiling at you with his lovely bright eyes – yes I used my favourite accessories, Rhinestones for his eyes!






Stamp set: Perfect Words (Hostess), Button Buddies

Card: Concord Crush, Bashful Blue, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White
Ink: Melon Mambo, Concord Crush

Accessories:  1-1/4” (3.2 cm) Circle Punch, Cheerful Treat DSP, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive






I thought he was the BEST!  so the sentiment suited fine :)
