Hello and welcome to the Stamp Review blog hop. It’s been awhile since I hopped with this talented group of demonstrators. I’m so happy to be joining in this hop. I’m the end of the line this time, so if you’re hopping in order, you just came from Cindy Elam’s Heart’s Delight blog. She has a distinctive style I just love.
This week we’re featuring the This Little Piggy stamp set. I fell in love with this set when it came out in the catalog this past June. I was so glad for this hop and the chance to get inky with it.
My first card is a tri-shutter card. You can find a tutorial for it here. Tri-shutter cards have that real wow factor, but they’re really quite simple to make.
Closed, the card is a normal A2 size:
Here it is out of the envelope:
And completely stretched out:
The paper is from the Delightful Daisy dsp pack. I did a little creative inking and masking to get the sentiments and piggies to look like I wanted. I like that they’re poking out beyond the white card stock.
I stamped each pig twice, cutting the second image out and sponging it with Powder Pink. Then I glued the colored image on the stamped background image, letting the pigs overlap the side of the paper.
When I was going through my stamps to get my piggies, I came across another set that gave me a fun idea for a second card. Remember the old Mystery Date game? Sometimes you opened the door and a handsome guy was waiting on the other side.
And sometimes you got this guy:
This just cracks me up. I used the stamps and framelits from the At Home With You bundle. I love that the framelits include a rectangle that cuts the door out so you can open it up.
I just love this piggy set and I hope you like my cards. Now it’s time to hop on to Rochelle Blok’s blog – The Stampin Blok – to see what she has in store for you. Thanks for stopping by!
