I started by stamping one of the cute pigs from the "This Little Piggy" stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White Card Stock. I squeezed some Rococo Rose Ink into the lid of the stamp pad and colored the pig with a Blender Pen. I colored the grass with a Light Old Olive Stampin' Blend. I cut out the pig with a large Stitched Shapes Die and adhered it to a scalloped Seaside Spray Card Stock mat that I cut with one of the Layering Circles Dies. I didn't like how "flat" the pig looked, so I washed over the ink with some Wink of Stella.
I masked off the bottom of the pig (the grassy area) with washi tape and inked up the stamp with Seaside Spray Ink. I stamped this onto a Whisper White scrap and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch. I snipped off the points with my Paper Snips and adhered this to the card with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. I also stamped the "thanks" sentiment in Seaside Spray Ink onto Whisper White Card Stock. I cut that out with an oval Stitched Shapes Die and adhered it to a scalloped Seaside Spray oval that I cut with a Layering Ovals Die.
I stamped the "Buffalo Check" background stamp in Purple Posy Ink onto a 3-3/4" by 5" Whisper White Panel. I adhered that to a 4" by 5-1/4" Seaside Spray Card Stock mat. I tied on a length of Whisper White Flax Ribbon before adhering everything to a Purple Posy Card Stock card base.
I adhered the pig circle and "thanks" oval to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. For a finishing touch, I added three Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins for a little extra sparkle.
And now a word from our sponsor. Stampin' Up has TWO amazing promotions going on right now. The first is July Bonus Days: for every $50 you spend before July 31 (before shipping and tax), you will earn a $5 Bonus Days coupon code that can be used August 1–31. How cool is that?
The second promotion gives you Extra, Extra Stampin' Up merchandise when you join my team during July or August. The cost of the new demonstrator starter kit is $99--but from now until August 31, new demonstrators will receive an additional $30--which means you can put $155 of any Stampin' Up merch you'd like in your new demonstrator starter kit. And the month after you sign up, you’ll receive a $10 coupon code to spend the following month.
