Gingham and Pig Tails

Did you know that I am LIVE each Monday at 12:30 on my Facebook Page? Today I showed how you can cut up your stamps to make them work better for your crafting needs and we made this stinkin’ cute card:

Each of the This Little Piggy stamps comes with a saying attached to it, but if you order the clear mount stamp set and cut off the words, you can use the pigs alone, or mix and match with the greetings!

Switch around the colors, and add a gingham ribbon, and you’ve got another card (which my guests created at the Card Class last Saturday): Watermarked1(2017-07-31-1300)

Because my Mother-in-Law has the largest pig collection in the western hemisphere, this card is off to thank her for the birthday gift she sent!

This Little Piggy Found Zen

This little piggy is happy it’s Friday!

Today’s card was inspired by #tgifc113 and the fact that the “This Little Piggy” stamp set was sitting on my desk, begging to be used today.

So if you’ve never tried the Bokeh technique, I’ll show you how I did this one (there are a few different techniques, but this one is the easiest for me). I started with a piece of Pool Party card stock and sponged Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise, Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo in circular motions on the top. It won’t look pretty at this point. Never fear~ It gets better!

Next I took a Window Sheet and punched different sizes of circles in it. You could also use the circle framelit dies and your big shot. Lay this over the top of your dried, sponged card and apply plenty of Whisper White Ink with a sponge dauber. Remember to make some of the circles go off the edge of your paper!

 

I like to find a circle stamp (or two) in some of my other stamp sets to add a few stamped circles after the sponging too. This little circle was pulled from the “Sweet Home” set, but any will work. IMG_4593 Next I stamped the happy pig on top using Night of Navy ink and also stamped it on Powder Pink card stock to cut out. I don’t mind a little fussy cutting to make this cute guy really pop off the card. FullSizeRender 7

The flower was stamped/cut out from Daffodil Delight and as I wanted to keep it clean and simple today, I simply added a few of the new Glitter Enamel Dots in keeping with the Bokeh theme:
