This Little Piggy by Stampin’ Up!

Can you spot three new products on my card?  

#1 The adorable little pig!  The stamp set, This Little Piggy, includes four different poses of this cutie pie pig along with sentiments, kisses (I didn’t even notice these until writing this post) and a cloud.  

#2  A new embossing folder!  This one is called Pinewood Planks and it’s one of the new Dynamic folders.  It’s much thicker than our normal embossing folders which means that you only need one cutting plate when running it through the Big Shot.  For an even deeper impression, you can lightly spritz your paper with water first.

#3  Powder Pink Cardstock   Powder Pink is one of five new In Colors this year!  All five colors will be available for two years.

The little pig was easy to color in using an Aqua Painter and Stampin’ Up! ink pads:  Powder Pink, Wild Wasabi and Perfect Plum. While the stamp pads were closed, I pushed on the covers so that ink would collect on the lid.  When it’s opened, it’s easy to pick up the color with the Aqua Painter.

It can be a bit confusing and overwhelming when trying to decide what products you want to purchase.  To help make it easier, I’ve divided the supplies to make my card into three different options.  

Option #1 will give you the basics to create the card.  You’ll have ink to stamp and color in the pig.  If you have colored pencils or pens already in your crafting stash, you can use those to color in the flower and grass. 

Option #2 adds the extra ink pads, embossing folder, doilies and linen thread.

Option #3 is for those of you who want it all!  This option adds in the two sets of Framelits. (You could very easily just use the Layering Ovals Framelits.  The Stitched Shapes Framelits add the extra stitching details.)

Simply click on any of the pictures, and you’ll be taken right to my Stampin’ Up! online store.  If you have questions, please feel free to contact me!  Please note that I have not included adhesive in any of the options.
