You Make Me Happy

The sketch challenge at Craft Project Central this month is so fun. Here’s the CPC76 sketch designed by Regina.

It’s a fun gatefold card. Here’s my take on the sketch. You’ll see I didn’t change much at all; I took the sketch almost entirely at face value. And, of course, I used all Stampin’ Up! products.

Stampin' Up!, CPC76, This Little Piggy

I love the This Little Piggy stamp set, and this one in particular always makes me smile. I stamped him in Tuxedo Black Memento on Very Vanilla Cardstock, then colored with Pink Pirouette, Ivory, Old Olive, Bermuda Bay, and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. (And, wow – does it look unblended in the photo. Yowzers. It looks so much better in real life. I’ll go back and add some more blending!)

I hadn’t planned to use the Ivory marker, but I picked it up, thinking it was another color. It worked out ok, though, because pigs really aren’t pink, so it toned the pink down a bit.

Instead of stamping on the front of the card, I used some Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. The stamped layer is adhered to a piece of Fresh Fig Cardstock. I die-cut the cloud and the heart using the Up & Away Thinlits.

You can see my original post with Regina’s card here. Every month, Craft Project Central has a sketch challenge – Creating Pretty Cards. For every 10 entries, one winner is randomly drawn.

    Oh Buffy that is soooo cute. I love everything about this card. The wood DSP behind the pig is perfect.

      Thanks, Jackie! I’m so glad we got this set at OnStage. I didn’t think I wanted it. (HA! Almost everything I didn’t think I wanted is now on my shelf. Mostly because of you and Susan.)


  4. How cute is that happy pig?!?! That DSP is just perfect for this card. Thanks for playing along with this month’s card challenge!
