Stampin' Up! This Birthday Piggy ~ Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 489


This Birthday Piggy Stamp Set, by Stampin' Up! is every bit as much fun to play with as I thought it was going to be!  For this card, I used the Sketch 489 from Atlantic Hearts as my inspiration. 

I started by cutting rectangles from 3 colors of cardstock and attaching them to a piece of Basic White Cardstock. 
(I had planned on using a Basic White Card Base, but then switched to Basic time I will use Basic Black cardstock to attach my pieces to.  I feel like the black makes the colors POP more)
I then placed the cardstock in my Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and embossed.

After coloring the pig image with Stampin' Blends (the colors I used are linked in the Product List at the end of this post), I used the coordinating Playful Piggies Dies to cut it out.   
I used the banner from the same die set to cut Daffodil Delight, Sweet Sorbet & Tahitian Tide cardstock scraps.  Then, I cut one tiny triangle banner piece from the Daffodil Delight & Tahitian Tide to glue on the Sweet Sorbet piece.  

All layers to this card were adhered with Liquid Glue, except the pig, which was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

Card Base ~ Basic Black Cardstock ~ 11" x 4-1/4", score at 5-1/2"
Layer 1 ~ Basic Black Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"
Layer 2 ~ Daffodil Delight, Sweet Sorbet & Tahitian Tide Cardstocks ~ 2" x 1-3/4" (2 of each color)
