This Little Piggy

Happy Saturday!

Right!  My mission is to get caught up on all my OLD projects!  So ... rather than sharing ONE project today I'm sharing three, all using the same stamp set, This Little Piggy.  I just LOVE these little fellas!  Check them out ...

Aren't they just the CUTEST???

This is the stamp set used ... $27 CDN clear mount; $37 CDN wood mount

I have plans to use this set (along with Bella and Friends and Pretty Kitty) to do fundraiser cards for the Edmonton Humane Society.  That's the PLAN, anyway.  Add it to the "to-do" list!

I can't take credit for the ideas of these cards.  In fact, the first one (my personal fave) is a direct CASE from fellow demonstrator Diane Gibbs.
Yes, I had to stamp the pigs on scrap paper and fussy cut them "old school" with my paper snips but just LOOK how cute the final project is!  SO worth a little cutting!!   Now ... what colors did I use?  Hmmm - I made them so long ago I have to think .... I stamped the piggies on Blushing Bride (I believe) and then added a little depth of color/shadowing with the same color using my blender pen.  Pretty sure I used Soft Suede for the brown shading.  When you want to add shadowing just add a little color to the left of the stamped image.  Easy!

The next two cards were inspired by a number of different projects I had seen on Pinterest ..
I used the Woodgrain embossing folder on the card base, punched out a 2 1/2" circle (I think ...maybe a 2") for the piggy and used Soft Suede card stock with my Classic Label Punch ($23.50 CDN) for the fence.  The sentiment (totally PERFECT for this card!) is from Here For You ($24 CDN clear; $33 CDN wood)
The last card ... similar to the first, I just punched the hole through the top layer using my Circle framelits rather than with the punch (the punch doesn't reach far enough to put the hole where I wanted it).

They are all SO cute!  This set isn't the one to get if you want to mass produce cards - the coloring/shading will slow you down ... but it IS a great set and it's one I will keep in my stash for sure!

If you are in Canada and want it shipped to your door pop on over to my online store here .  If your order is under $200 and you enter the hostess code VU6P7GYW at the checkout I will mail you a gift! (make sure that your account gives Stampin' Up! permission to provide me with your name and address!  If you have checked off "no contact" I can't see who has ordered in order to thank them and/or send them a gift!)

So that's it for today.  I have to stroll Doodles then pack up my gear for a road trip!  I'm off to Calgary to do a Ladies Night Christmas Card Class with my dear friend Kris and her friends.  Whatever YOU get up to this weekend I hope you have a stampy time!
