This Little Piggy

Eclipse Technique Valentine Card

It may be a little early for Valentines Day cards, but I couldn't resist playing around with this popular new technique that I have been waiting to try. The eclipse technique is so very cool and super easy.

If you are attending card class this week, we will be making an eclipse card, so you're in luck!

For this card, I used the "This Little Piggy" stamp set and the new Stampin' Blends Markers. Of course it wouldn't be an eclipse technique without the main product... the Large Letters Framelit Dies.

The card base is real red 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card, Quilted Christmas designer paper is cut 5 1/4" x 4 and the whisper white is 5" x 3 3/4".

How stinkin' cute is this little piggy!?

All I did was stamp the image with the tuxedo black Memento ink pad, onto whisper white cardstock, and colored it in with the Stampin Blends alcohol markers, in pink pirouette, old olive and daffodil delight. I then cut the X and O out with the Big Shot and Large Letters Framelits dies.

Next, I mounted my whisper white cardstock onto my card- and attached the die cut X and O (in the cut out spaces) with mini dimensionals.

Don't forget the inside:

Thats it! Super simple.

I hope my card class attendees will love the card I have for them this week- its also Valentine related.

Thanks for stopping by today...

Until the next time....

Quick and Cute Piggy

I've got another cute little piggy card to share with you today. Its very simple but very sweet.

I used watercolor paper and aqua painters to watercolor the little pig. Its as simple as squeezing the lids of the inkpads, into the pad itself and picking up the deposited bit of ink on the inside of the lid with the aqua painter and coloring the image. I used the new "in color", powder pink, as well as flirty flamingo and a bit of pear pizazz for the grass.

How do you like the new "Oh My Stars" emboss folder that I used on the whisper white background? Pretty cool, huh?

I cut the scallop circle from the crumb cake cardstock with the Layering Circles framlits and also used the crumb cake cardstock for the card base.

I finished the card with the new powder pink finely woven ribbon and attached it with a glue dot.

On the inside, I used the verse "Says Thanks!" I'm just loving This Little Piggy and I think you will too!

Thanks for stopping by.

Until the next time...

This Little Piggy- Cute, New Catalog stamp set

I want to share another piggy card- just because I love it so much! The set is called "This Little Piggy" and its so super cute. I don't know how anyone could not love this little bugger.

I love the happy skip that this little piggy has. Isn't she cute?

This is a very pretty in pink, piggy card. Say that 3 times fast! I used the Sparkle emboss folder for the melon mambo strip down the middle and framed it in basic black cardstock, along with the pink pirouette for the card base.

I also used shimmery white cardstock to stamp the pig on, because it holds up to watercoloring really well. The Stitched Shapes framelits was used to cut out the square.

Such a happy card, perfect for a "happy mail" day.

Hope you are having a happy day too.

Thanks for visiting!

Until the next time...
