When This Little Piggy Flies

When pigs fly, the This Little Piggy stamp set will still be absolutely adorable. These little critters still make me smile. I decided to do something a little different for this card. Instead of the usual pinkish pigs, I went with brighter colors: Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, and Melon Mambo. After all, they are flying, so reality didn’t seem too important. What will you put on the inside of this card? When pigs fly… I’ll stop loving you, or I will like brussels sprouts, or you will no longer be beautiful.

The background was created by cutting a baby wipe into several pieces and using them to “sponge” different colors onto a piece of Whisper White card stock. It turned out rather dark, but it’s okay. Dark skies don’t bother these happy little flying piggies.

 

Here’s what I made:

When Pigs Fly, This Little Piggy stamp set by Stampin' Up! will still be adorable. The background was created using a baby wipe technique. #stampcandy

 

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Tempting Turquoise card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Melon Mambo CS cut to 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″
  • Whisper White CS cur to 5-1/4″ x 4″ (2 pieces)

Stamped with the This Little Piggy stamp set:

  • three flying pigs in Basic Black ink onto Shimmery White CS

Colored using an Aqua Painter:

  • three pigs: one in Tempting Turquoise, one in Daffodil Delight, and one in Melon Mambo

Fussy Cut using Paper Snips:

  • the three colored pigs

Colored the background:

  • used pieces of baby wipes to apply inks to one of the Whisper White CS pieces, using inks in Lemon Lime Twist, Melon Mambo, Dapper Denim, and Night of Navy

Assembled the card:

  • Melon Mambo CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • background layer glued onto the Melon Mambo layer
  • three pigs adhered to the background layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • the other Whisper White CS layer glued to the inside of the card
