A Cute Piggy for Inspire Create Challenge #012

Happy Friday Stamping Friends! I am back today with a challenge from Inspire.Create. #012 The creative theme this week is animals. Animals are always fun and can get you out of a creative slump. Who doesn’t love a cute, funny animal card?


This Little Piggy

I am using This Little Piggy to create a set of cards for friends that may need a word of encouragement. I know several friends who would appreciate an uplifting card and this piggy arriving in the mail will make them smile – guaranteed.

Dancing animals make me happy!

I started with bright colors because I wanted the card to be cheerful. Melon Mambo cardstock is about as cheerful as you can get. Use the new Stampin’ Blends to color your piggy. They really give him some great shading. Punch the daisies with the daisy punch and use a sponge dauber to add the Melon Mambo ink to the center of the daisy. Not all daisies have to be white and yellow do they? Color a Clear Faceted Gem with the lightest Cherry Cobbler Blends marker. Add some ribbon and silver mini sequin trim behind the daisy for texture and interest.

When Pigs Fly

 This is without a doubt the cutest stamp set in the Annual Catalog. I have made several cards using some of the images, but this is my first flying pig. Isn’t she darling??? She is colored with the new Blends markers. These markers blend and shade like a dream.


This is also the first time I tried the embossing paste. It was super easy to use.  I will have to use it more often. I like the texture it adds to the card. While the embossing paste was still wet I sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on the clouds. I thought it was like a silver lining. The wings also have Dazzling Diamonds sprinkled on them.


I wanted pink ribbon and didn’t have any so I dyed the Whisper White ribbon with my Melon Mambo re-inker. I love that you can change ribbon colors so easily.

I have no idea who will get this card….I don’t want to waste the cuteness on just anybody!!

Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Stamping!
