This Little Piggy

2017.07.20 Piggies hogs, happyI love this new set in the 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up Catalog.  So far, my Mother has used “This Little Piggy” for a birthday and an anniversary.  The set is quite versatile and could be used for about any occasion except sympathy. I used the retired Pop of Pink DSP for the background.  “This Little Piggy” was stamped on watercolor paper and allowed to dry.  Spectrum Noir markers provide piggy color.  If desired, splotches of gray or brown ink could be sponged on to imply a dirty pig. 

2017.07.20 Piggies 1A rhinestone has been added to the flower on the “You Make Me Happy” card.  “Hogs and Kisses” includes stamped kisses and “She Believed She Could…” is a bit glitzy with yellow Wink of Stella wings.  Touches of clear Wink of Stella were added to all 4 samples. 

This is the third offering we have now seen for the August Stamp Camp on August 3, 4 and 5 – Coffee Café, In the Garden, and now This Little Piggy.  Check back to see the Tim Holtz “Holiday Wreath” in the next blog.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding August Stamp Camp.  Don’t forget to let me know which cards you wish to do.  Any 4 cards for $12.00 and additional cards $2 each.

In the Garden

2017.07.20 IN THE GARDEN

This simple but eye-catching card uses the Taylored Expressions die “In The Garden.”  The watercolor wash on glossy paper uses Soft Sky and Marina Mist.  First, the glossy cs is misted with water; then the blended inks are brushed on generously with the aqua brush.  Finally, the cs is allowed to dry and cut to size.  The die is adhered to the bottom and then to the white frame using a strong adhesive. ;

TIP:  An easy way to add glue to the back of intricate die cuts is to take put a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on your silicone craft sheet.  Use a wedge of sponge to press the glue onto the sponge.  Then press the sponge onto the back of your die cut, remove gently the sponge and voila, your die cut is ready to adhere to your card stock. The glue on your silicone craft sheet can be easily wiped off.

Clouds are stamped from the “Lift Me Up” stamp set, cut with the matching dies and popped up with dimensionals.  The knotted black satin ribbon adds interest , texture and dimension.

“In The Garden” is the second offering we have seen for my August Stamp Camp on August 3, 4, and 5.  Remember to let me know by July 31st which cards you wish to do.  You can do any 4 cards for $12.00.  Additional cards are $2.00 each.  Check back soon to see the next blog – “This Little Piggy".”

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns!  Blessings, Rosemary – (h)630/759-3089 – (c)630/965-1965 – paperrose01@aol.com
