Global Stamping Friends Bloghop - Kids Cards


Back Hopping with Global Stamping Friends, 29 blog hoppers from all over
the world....Great to see so many new faces joining us this month.
I am here in Australia!!!  This month theme
Kids Cards

Hope you are enjoying the Blog Hop so far, you have just come from Angélique to my blog... I decided very last minute to use This Little Piggy.
I have had this image stamped for a little while and just had not coloured it.


Kids cards are not something that I make that often, so I thought that I would use the lil piggy set. I don't know about you BUT I feel like a lil pig when I am finished at any Birthday Party. ALSO you can't have a party without balloons RIGHT???
I cut my Lemon Lime Twist cardstock 144250 (11.75" x 4 "),
then I cut Foil Frenzy DSP (5.75" x 3.75") as my card front.
Inside Whisper White Cardstock 106549 (5.75" x 3.75")
Largest Circle Stitched Framelit 145372 and Largest Layering Circle Framelits 141705

I added Lemon Lime Twist Finely Woven Ribbon to the front of card and added the word SAYS....I just used my Stampin Write Markers to colour the word Says only
(from Says THANKS - This Little Pig)


I coloured the pigs with my Aqua Painters and Classic Stampin Pad - Powder Pink and Sahara Sand, Lemon Lime Twist.
You can do this by squeezing your ink pad when it is closed to create blob of ink inside the lid then adding small amounts of water from your Aqua Painter to the ink you can make your colour as light or dark as you like.


On the inside I used another piggy because of what I wanted to say to this recipient.
Hogs & Kisses, Birthday Wishes



I used quite a few stamp sets to create this card
