I believe I have posted before about how excited I am regarding the “Piggies” !!  I think they are just the cutest little girls.  And I realize they could be cute little guys just as easily.  But today I have made them girls and a crate for them to be delivered or gifted in.


This Little Piggy, 143922


This is the view of all of them in the little crate.  And I used the “Must have in your stamping tool chest (Envelope Punch Board) to make matching envelopes for the little girls.  You can see one peeking from behind and in the second photo.

My color inspiration was from the piggies and the stamps, or what is to be colored on the stamps.

For me, the Powder Pink was brought in for this year’s In Colors to color the piggies!  It is the perfect shade of pink..  I used the crumb cake and old olive to color the dirt and tufts of grass on a couple of the stamps.  And of course the Crumb Cake goes well with the wood DSP used on the wood crate .

Here are the individual cards spread out.

This Little Piggy, 143922


The kisses and the clouds are included in the This Little Piggy stamp set. As is the “Loves You”.  I die cut the Loves You with the smallest of the Sweet and Sassy Framelits.  I kept them minimal so they easily fit inside the crate and the envelopes, but I had to add a touch of bling!  Every little girl needs her Bling!  So they each got small rhinestones for earrings. The DSP showing on the envelope is just for some more color and is from the Pick A Pattern DSP.  These pieces were laying on my cutting table saying “Use Me, Use Me”! Scraps are our friend!!

The cards are 3 X 3, with the crumb cake base cut to 3 X 6 and folded in half. The Whisper white layer is 2 7/8 X 2 7/8. For the envelope I followed the directions on the Envelope Punch Board for a 3 X 3 card size.  They were very quick and easy to make.

I have not forgotten about the crate!  It is the Wood Crate Framelits. and it pairs with the Wood Words stamp set.  I used the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack to create the crate.  These are just perfect paired together.  All it takes is two cuts with the framelit using two pieces of the DSP.  That may sound like a lot of the DSP but they are 6 X 6 pieces and you have scraps to add to a host of other items. (Remember the scraps on my envelopes above).

Thank you for checking out my card to day.  I appreciate your visits and your comments.
