Candy Hearts Blog Hop April 2020 Mother's Day @stampcandy

Welcome to the Candy Hearts Blog Hop for April 2020! This month we are featuring projects for Mother’s Day. I wanted to make something that reflects this particular Mother’s Day, during the COVID 19 pandemic. That’s when I decided on the sweet little pig from the This Little Piggy stamp set, because I had seen someone else put a mask on her/him, and I thought it was just adorable. I took the colors from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper I used for the background layer: Petal Pink, Pool Party, and Whisper White. Be sure to hop around to all the stops, because you don’t want to miss any of the great projects from the Candy Hearts! I can’t wait to see what they share!

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Pool Party card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper (DSP) layer cut to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 3/4″ x 1/2″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 1/8″ x 1/2″ (2 pieces)
  • optional: Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base

Scored using the Simply Scored tool:

  • 3/4″ x 1/2″ Whisper White CS piece every 1/8″

Stamped with the This Little Piggy stamp set:

  • pig in Petal Pink ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS (masking the sentiment on the bottom, and only inking up the pig)

Stamped with the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set:

  • sentiment in Pool Party ink just below the pig

Cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies:

  • pig using the second largest scalloped rectangular die
  • a scrap of Pool Party CS using the largest scalloped rectangular die

Colored using Stampin’ Blends Markers:

  • pig in both Dark and Light Petal Pink
  • pig’s feet in Light Crumb Cake

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • DSP layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • 1/8″ strips glued onto the pig’s face, then the scored piece glued over that to create the mask
  • pig layer glued onto the Pool Party die cut layer at an angle
  • Pool Party die cut layer glued onto the DSP layer at an angle
  • Petal Pink ribbon tied in a bow and adhered onto the pig layer using Mini Glue Dots
  • optional: Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
