I used a digital stamp from Sparkle n’ Sprinkle called Hog Heaven
link: https://tinyurl.com/y32yn7ps …I printed the black and white image on cardstock, and then using my printer, reduced the size to 80% of it’s normal size to ensure it would fit on a 5 x 7″ card. I used regular cardstock and worried because it was inexpensive Georgia Pacific 110 pound cardstock from Walmart…and I was concerned that the paper would break down when I used so much water based marker on it. I colored with a few pinks and blended them together. I couldn’t believe how well they worked on the pig….and then I used two purples on the flowers and they blended well….I was pleasantly surprised that the markers worked as well as they did, both in coloring, and in not destroying the paper. After coloring the pig, I cut out the image and used a black Sharpie to color the paper edges…I used a piece of fun foam for on the back of the pig, so it wouldn’t waffle on the card when going through the mail. I added tear tape (that I buy from craftchameleon.com) and attached the foam to the back of the pig with it….I had cut out the sentiment with dies, then decided the word Sow was too large for the front, and decided to cut the letters out by hand. To attach it to the card, I used my Xyron machine and used an adhesive eraser to take off any excess glue before removing the word from the backing paper. I laid it on the front of the card on an angle, and added Judikins Diamond Glaze over it to create a 3d look to it.
I used tear tape on the back of the other words and attached them to the inside of the 5 x 7″ card.
I wanted to add Stickles to make the card more frisky, so added purple and yellow to the flowers, and pink over the pig, then used an aqua color over the rest of the front of the card so it looked like the pig was floating on water..I use my finger to spread Stickles when I want it to be flat like on the pig..If you use Stickles, when you are finished, wipe off the top and tap the bottle on your desk and squeeze the bottle a little bit and suck air back into the bottle so the Stickles doesn’t clog the top….
I have a personalized stamp that was made by Stampanda.com and used a coupon from groupon to get a big discount…the name of the stamp was Molly, and I just changed the words to “Made with love by Sandy Parker.”
I added a peg stamp “doggie running happy” to the envelope…link:
