Thinking of you PIG TIME!

Saturday, January 12th, 2019

Happy Saturday crafty friends, I’m here with another lil’ make using MFT- Hog Heaven. I just love piggy’s and this little set just makes me smile!


I started with a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock and ink blended some clouds with Worn Lipstick and Antique linen Distress Oxides. I then cut out the panel using a Sizzix Dotted Hearts Die. I cut out some clouds and inked the edges slightly with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide. I used one of the cloud dies to cut through my Kraft cardbase to create the window for my piggy. I added an Impression Obession Edge die and stamped the “PIG TIME” sentiment from the set with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide.

I colored the little piggy and his coordinating backside with Spectrum Noir Colorblend pencils and fussy cut them out and adhered them to my card.

And that’s the inside of my card. :o) How cute and versatile is this set??? Love!

Well I hope you enjoyed this fun and quick lil’ card using HOG HEAVEN. If you’d like to see the other card I made using this set, please go here.

Happy Craftin’!



Having a HOOT with coloring mediums!

Thursday, December 27th, 2018

I had so much fun playing with MFT- Warm & Feathered Hugs Stamp set. I made two tags using different mediums- Copics and Fabercastell Pencils.

This stamp set has a 3 adorable owls to choose from and so many fun sentiments, so I couldn’t decide which to use, so I used two images from the set and colored them with different mediums onto different cardstocks.I started with the second larges die in the Tim Holtz Stacked Die set cut from Neenah 80lb Cardstock and Bazzil Kraft Cardstock.

First up, I colored the owl with the adorable scarf and stamped him onto Neenah 80lb cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx ink and heat set it to dry.

I colored him with Copics and added a Signo White Gel pen for highlights. SO MUCH FUN TO COLOR THESE LIL’ GUYS!!

I added a branch for him to be perched on from Tim Holtz- Bird Branch Big Die and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide.  I adhered the branch to the tag and trimmed off the excess as it is a large die. I inked some Antique Linen Distress Ink to warm up the background a bit and stamped a sentiment from the Warm & Feathered Hugs set with Versafine Sepia Ink . I adhered the tag to black cardstock and trimmed around the tag leaving about a 1/8″ border and some gingham ribbon finished off my first tag using Alcohol Markers and white cardstock.

Next up, I stamped a different owl onto Bazzil Kraft Cardstock with Versafine Sepia Ink.

I colored the image using Fabercastell Goldfaber colored crayons- I  love the effect of coloring on Kraft cardstock with  colored pencils, such a sweet and soft look you get by layering the colors. I then added some white Signo Gel pen for highlights and added a Lawn Fawn Stiched Hillside border and edged the hill with some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide to give the snowhill some definition.

I then added a different sentiment from the Stamp set and added the black cardstock border and ginham ribbon, like I did in the first tag.

There we have it, a couple of quick and easy tags using different coloring mediums and cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by and I can’t wait to see y’all in the New Year!
