Two Cute Piggy Cards – My 500th Blog Post

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog today…it’s my 500th blog post…it’s been two years of blogging for me and I’m amazed at how encouraging and lovely the cardmakers all over the world are and am thankful to all…


Now to the cards I’m sharing today…the piggy stamp I’ve used are from set that has been aptly named ‘Sow Much Cuteness’ by MFT Stamps….all the images are super cute and the sentiments are great as well…today I’m sharing two cards that I have made with this set..

For my first card I chose a white card base and a die cut dark blue top layer…I then used a self made cloud stencil and white pigment ink to create the cloud background on the blue top layer…this technique was shown by Jennifer McGuire in one of her tutorials – 6 Quick Stencil Techniques and it has taken me so long to try it out..
I then die cut a grassy border from lime green cardstock and adhered it to the base of the top layer…I stamped the sentiment using watermark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder and then adhered this top layer to  the card base…

On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped the piggy images,coloured them in and cut them out before placing them on the card using some foam squares..I punched three small butterflies from pink glitter cardstock and used them to embellish my card…

For my second card I used a white card base as well as a white top layer….to create the scene of a jumping piggy on this card I first die cut clouds from blue and white glitter cardstock as well as a rainbow from white cardstock(which my younger daughter coloured in using Distress Inks)…once these were adhered to the top layer,I used a large stitched rectangle stencil to cut off the excess before adhering it to the card base…

Now all I had to do was add the coloured in piggy image using foam squares,stamp the sentiment and add a cute butterfly and my card was ready…

Post#156 Shaker Money Pouch using Fuse Tool

Ever since I saw the tutorial for a shaker money holder/pouch by Vicki, it has been on the top of my ‘try to make’ list…..the only thing stopping me was that I didn’t have enough sequins to fill the pouch…so in the end I just couldn’t wait any longer and this is my first ever attempt…I’m sure I will try more of these when I finally am able to buy a big bag of sequins…but here’s the first…
If you click on the link and follow the tutorial video in Vicki’s post,you will understand how easy these pouches/money holders are to create with a fuse tool….
I actually placed the die cut and stamped sentiments inside the pouch,which I later realised that I shouldn’t have…anyways,that was the front of the pouch…..on the back of the pouch I simply stamped with white stazon ink…
To decorate the pouch I have used multi-coloured rhinestones….and to close the pouch at the top I have used a wide ribbon and closed it at the top using a gold string…
Hope you liked this…..

Post#135 Merry Christmas Green & Red Shaker Card

I made this shaker card using the WRMK fuse tool and a photo pocket…the card is not bulky at all which means that it can be posted normally with no extra postage or special packaging..

I started with a piece of green cardstock 5×12″ and scored the long side at 4″ and 8″….this is so that one section gets folded in to create the backing section for the shaker pocket….which also means that the section between the two score lines would be the front of the card and had to be die cut for the shaker to show through….I also die cut and embossed a thin frame from red card stock to go around the die cut space…

Once the shaker pocket was filled with sequins,I stamped an image of a scarecrow with white ink and attached the pocket at the back of the die cut space and glued in the backing section of the card….all that was left was to attach the stamped sentiment and the card was ready…

I’m quite pleased with how this card has turned out….hope you liked it too…

Post#71 Black and White Stamped Doily Card

I bought this vintage lace doily stamp set quite a while back and have since used them a lot….but what I never tried with them was a white stamp on black card…and I don’t know what was more tricky…..making this card or taking a picture of this card… 🙂
The base of the card is black and I used another layer of black cardstock to stamp the doilies on…I think I should’ve used a glossy cardstock for a better result….the ink made the stamp stick onto the paper…so I started again…this time it worked….then I added a red sequin in the center of each stamp and the card was ready…..
I like this card…Hope you liked it too…

Post#69 Gift Tag with Stamped Acetate Layer

I am really enjoying using acetate in my projects these days….here is another one with an acetate layer…
I die cut an olive green tag and made a dotted border all around the tag with a white gel pen….then I die cut the same tag from the acetate sheet….I placed this on top of the green base tag….I also stamped the girl and boy holding balloons on acetate tag with white ink…
The ribbon holds both the tags together nicely so there was no need for any adhesives…
Hope you liked it….

Post#62 Circle Tag

Now this is one of those projects where I was trying out something and it turned out to be something else….happens with me a lot somehow… 🙂
Anyways….I was trying to use the clear acetate sheet, that came with one of my newly purchased stamp set, and create a circle shaker tag…..but turns out that the acetate was too thick to use with the fuse tool…and by then I had already stamped the acetate with white pigment ink …embossed it with a stitched circle die….and die cut it with a larger circle die…
So this is where I cancelled the shaker tag idea and went ahead with creating a see through tag…
I die cut two circle frames from kraft cardstock…and then attached the stamped aceate sheet between the two frames…punched a hole at the top of the tag and threaded a brown string through it…
Hope you liked it….
