Hey everyone! I hope you're having a fab weekend! I'm having a completely restful one involving lots of crafting! Today i have a card to share with you that was designed by a new crafty pal of mine Kat, who has recently signed up to Stampin' Up! simply to get her crafty mits of the super-value starter kit! (Did you know you could do that?! You can buy the kit without any obligation at all to make sales and you could customise your kit to suit your styles! If you're interested and would like some more details just email me: firstname.lastname@example.org )
Kat actually chose the fab 'Button Buddies' stampset as one of her sets in the starter kit and i was very excited that she designed a card using this set and shared this with us during yesterdays crafty session! Here it is:
Isn't it soooooo cute! The cardbase has been created from some 'Very Vanilla' cardstock that has been folded and then run through the 'Big Shot' using the 'Large Scallop Die'. Next we ran a strip of 'Certainly Celery DSP' through the 'Big Shot' with the same die, then snipped it to create some grass and glued it into place!
On a piece a 'Very Vanilla' we then stamped the super cute pig from the 'Button Buddies' stampset using 'Rose Red' ink, cut him out and glued him into place. We then stamped out another piggy out and cut out just the nose (sounds a bit cruel i know!) and then raised it using 'Dimensionals' to create a 3D effect!!
Finally we stamped the 'happy birthday' sentiment (from the 'Create-a-Cupcake' stampset) using 'Rose Red' ink onto some 'Very Vanilla' and punched it out using the 'Word Window Punch' and again used 'Dimensionals' to glue it into place.
I just love this card and enjoyed using some new products that i don't personally own. Although i have to say the 'Large Scallop Die' and the 'Button Buddies' stampset are now firmly on my wishlist - maybe i'll be lucky and get them for my birthday next week!!
Thankyou Kat for sharing this cute piggy with us!!!
Check back to my blog tomorrow as it is time for another Crafty Boots Challenge to be announced!!
