Stampin' with This Little Piggy for #CC&S220


Hi Everyone

Thanks for stopping by today. I'm back again with another challenge entry using the new stamp set This Little Piggy by Stampin' Up! I just can't get enough of these cute piggies!

It's a sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches #CC&S220 and below is this week's sketch to follow


For my card, I kept to the original layout but changed the shapes of the top banner and frame 


Card base 14.8cm x 29.6cm
Stamp This Little Piggy using Basic Black Archival Stampin' Pad on Whisper White
Use Calypso Coral, Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry Watercolour Pencils to colour the pig
Die cut with the circular Stitched Shapes Framelits
Use the outline die from Detailed Floral Thinlits for the 'clouds'
Colour with Pool Party using Aqua Painters and adhere using dimensionals
Stamp the trio of lips in Real Red and embellish with Real Red Enamel Shapes


I find it quite relaxing just colouring and blending, not realising how much time passes by. What's great about the Watercolour Pencils is that you can spend as much or as little time you want colouring! So you can also just do a quick outline and wash with the Aqua Painters if you prefer.

Thanks again for stopping by. Until next time, BYEEEEE

Hi Everyone

Thank you for stopping by today. I am sharing my card that I am entering to the Global Design Project #GDP084 Case the Designer challenge. This week, we are casing the very talented Michelle Last and her project below


I have admired Michelle's projects for a while now and have even CASEd a few for our class and displays. For this challenge, I have taken the embossed background, layering frames and water coloured image to use for my entry.


This Little Piggy is a new stamp set which I won on Prize Patrol at #onstage2017 live in Amsterdam earlier this month where I also saw Michelle demonstrate another new product from the upcoming Annual Catalogue.


Card base: 14.8cm x 29.6cm
Pear Pizzazz cardstock 14.3cm x 10cm embossed with Petal Burst Textured Impressions Folder
This Little Piggy stamped on Whisper White card with Basic Black Archival Stampin' Pad
Use Chocolate Chip, Basic Grey and Calypso Coral Watercolour Pencils for the pig, Daffodil Delight for the daisy and Old Olive for the grass and leaf
Add texture on the pig by dabbing/pouncing the side of your Blender Pens
Silver emboss the sentiment on a banner
Embellish with Jewel Basic Rhinestone, Gold Natural Trim Ribbon and 1 strand from Burlap Ribbon

Stampin' with Birthday Bright for #CC&S219


Hi Everyone

Thank you for stopping by today where I am sharing a Clean and Simple (CAS) card design using Birthday Bright by Stampin' Up!®

These projects were inspired by CAS Colours & Sketches Colour Challenge #CC&S219 using the following colours:



The other products used are a mixture of retired, discontinued and current Stampin' Up! items. I am also trying to use more Designer Series Paper (DSP) on my projects recently to use up what we have in our stash.

The star is placed where it is as I made a mistake and marked the DSP. I think I saved this card alright.


Kraft card base is 14.8cm x 29.6cm
Designer Series Paper (DSP) topper 9.5cm x 13.8cm
Stamp with Gorgeous Grunge in Old Olive at the bottom left and top right
Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment in black Memento on the bottom right
Use the  Balloon Bouquet Punch on Thick Whisper White and Tip Top Taupe card
Use Clear Wink of Stella on the punched balloons
Stamp the strings and adhere the balloons on the top right with Tip top Taupe on Dimensionals
The Mint Macaron Glimmer dots and stars were punched using Owl Builder and Itty Bitty


Here is an even simpler card using Birthday Bright with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies:
Stamp Gorgeous Grunge with Old Olive at the centre of the DSP
Die cut the 2nd smallest Square Stitched Framelit
Stamp 'Big' in Memento Black and 'wish' in Tip Top Taupe
Add the Mint Macaron Glimmer dots and heart (punched from Owl Builder)


Check out the cards from the CC&S Design Team as well as others participating on this colour challenge #CC&S219. Thanks again for stopping by, until next time BYEEEEE
