Happy Happy Happy


Today I have a fun card using a SU! This Little Piggy stamp set along with a SU! Hardwood background stamp. I've been loving the background stamp and using it for a lot of cards lately. I'd been using a wooden plank stamp previously to create backgrounds, but this background stamp streamlines the process! I stamped a kraft panel with vintage photo distress ink for the background, while the piggy was stamped on white and cut with MFT stitched circle dies. I matted the piggy image with some SU! Powder Pink cardstock and used that for the card base as well. The piggy was colored with markers and glaze pens. I added a piece of matching twine and called this one done.

I'm sharing this with the Little Red Wagon challenge #405 which is to use your current favorite products. My favorites are the "Hardwood" background stamp from SU! along with all of the Tim Holtz distress inks.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a happy day too :)

That pig is adorable. I love him. The background stamp is really cool. I have two woodgrain stamps, but none look like planks. A very nice touch to have the pink over brown. Looks great!

Seems that piggies are all the rage and this little oinker is cute as a button. I am enjoying the many ways you have been including the hardwood, also. Bravo!
