Craft Stamper Blog Hop

Blog Hop Logo

Hello everyone!!   Welcome to Craft Stamper Magazines very first Take it, Make It blog hop!

If you have landed here from Jolande blog then you’re in the right place!

A list of all the blog hop links can be found HERE.

The January challenge is called ‘Take A Stamp’, and is really simple…just use a stamp somewhere in your art!

Take a look at the project I am sharing today (the pictures do not do it justice):

How cool is this little guy!! I had so much fun coloring this little pig from Simon Say Stamps Birthday Farm Animals.  Thanks Kay Miller for the inspiration for this card!!

Lets take a closer look at that balloon:

Look at that glossy balloon!!  It adds so much to the card.

Lets take a closer look at the die cut “Congrats” from Penny Black’s Creative Dies – Hooray.

This card was super easy to create.  I’m going to tell you how.

1. I cut my card base to an A2 size card (4.25 x 5.50) scored at 4.25.

2. I used Distress Inks Evergreen Bough and Salty Ocean to blend the colors across the center of the card.

3. I stamped my party pig with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink because I was using Copic Markers to color in pig.

Copics used: Pig (R20, R22); Pig eyes (BG00); Pig Mouth ( W5, W7); Balloon (BG11, BG34); Party Hat (YG03, YG17, YG67)

4. I added glossy accents to the balloon.

5. I die cut the Congrats 3 times and stacked them on top of each other with  Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive to give the word some dimension, then adhered the word to the center of my card.

6. I added foam adhesive to the back of my pig and balloon and adhered it right above my die cut sentiment.

7. I attached my card panel with foam adhesive and that was it!!

Soooo, what do you think?  Now its your turn!!
