Hello crafty friends! We recently celebrated my daughter’s 7th birthday which she requested that it would be “pig-themed”. When she was a baby, my husband and I had bought her an adorable plush pig that has never left her side. She now has 9 of them (all different) and loves all things “pig”!
All that to say, when I first saw this super cute Pig Day Stamp Set from Hello Bluebird Stamps, I knew that it would be perfect for my daughter’s birthday card. To start, I first trimmed a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock to 8.5″ x 3.5″. I then masked off an area on the bottom of the card and blended above it with some blue/green Distress Oxide Inks (Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, and Tumbled Glass). I then splattered my ink blended area lightly with water to give it more texture and blotted it dry with a paper towel after letting it sit for about a minute.
To add some interest, I then splattered my background with both diluted Opaque White Paint and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink. I love how all the ink splatters makes this pig party look so festive. For my images, I stamped them all with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a separate piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and colored them with Copics. I then used the coordinating Pig Day Die Set to cut them out.
Copic Colors Used:
- Pigs: E0000, E000, E00, E11, E13, R11 (Special thanks to Leanne West who kindly gave me her amazing color combo for coloring pigs!)
- Pinks: RV000, RV00, RV52, RV55, RV66
- Balloon: BG000, BG01, BG02, BG05, BG07
- Yellows: Y11, Y02, Y08
- Birds: B000, B01, B04, B06
I stamped my sentiment with black ink onto the upper left corner of my card panel once my panel was completely dry. Lastly, I added all of my images with some 3D Foam Adhesive Squares to give them some added dimension.
