…went to a Party! In fact, all 5 little piggies went to the party! Today’s Clean & Simple (CAS420) Challenge asks up to use some string or an image w/ a string. Every little piggy has a balloon w/ a string, so there you go.

My easy card is pretty self explanatory 🙂 Party Hat Pig was die cut w/ an oval & all his little piggy friends were stamped, masking as I went & their balloons are from a little balloon punch. The balloons were punched out of white & I colored them & drew the little strings w/ a fine black pen. I will mention a little trick I use when I need more than one mask of an image. Stamp the image several (or more) times onto your thin paper. Hold them up to the light to line them up, then cut them out all at once. When they’re stacked like this, you only have to cut one to have multiple masks. I also save them in a baggy for future use.

Here are the Copics I used. Whoda thunk it took so many?

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!

A big Congrats to Linda, the newest Featured Stamper (FS527) on Splitcoast! After strolling thru her sweet gallery, I chose THIS to case. I kept the CAS design & sponging, but used different colors, different images & made mine a Christmas card. 
I had the white piece already die cut so I used some Distress inks to sponge in some pink/reds from the upper left & some lime greens from the lower right. The pine bough was stamped a couple of times w/ a combo of the green Memento inks and the greeting was stamped w/ black. I added a narrow pine green layer & instead of using another white layer to use the embossing folder on, I embossed the front of the card. The trick w/ this is, because I only wanted the front embossed, I had to put the card front in upside down in the folder, so it needed to be a pattern that looked good going either direction. Anything else would just look upside down 🙂

I added a die cut paper bow to finish. Here’s a look at the inside. The embossed card front also gives a nice look to the top of the inside.

Today’s Free For All Challenge (F4A368) on Splitcoast wants us to use a food or a food related image/theme. So I’m going w/ a tasty cupcake!

The cupcake was stamped & colored, then I used parts of 2 greetings and die cut the word “wish” twice & stacked it. After lining it up on the cupcake, I matched the colors & lines so it would blend in. A single candle was fussy cut & I made a small slit to insert it. A dry embossed dk red panel, some stickles & sequins were added to finish.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
