Stamp Review Crew -- This Little Piggy

Stamp Review Crew blog banner

Hello!  Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop featuring the This Little Piggy stamp set.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Stamp Review Crew is an international group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who gather for a blog hop the first and third Mondays of the month to review a single stamp set.  The number of participants varies from hop to hop, but the ideas are plentiful as we take a stamp set through its paces.  By the time you've traveled through the hop, you are sure to find a number of innovative ways to use the featured stamp set.  So sit back, relax, and get ready to start pinning ideas to your Pinterest board!

To see the line up of artists for this week's hop, click here.  If you've already joined the hop and are traveling forward, you've arrived from Charlet's blog where you were presented with an amazing project to inspire your creativity.  If you're traveling backwards through the hop, you've seen Bronwyn's project and are ready to CASE! (Copy And Share Everything)

I have three projects to share with you.

My first card uses some masking and the Stamp-a-ma-jig to create the greeting under the piggy.  It also has a surprise on the inside with a movement mechanism.  You'll want to come back next week to see what that looks like and how easy it is to make.


Supplies I used for this project -- 

Stamps:  This Little Piggy; Inks:  Basic Black Archival, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango; Cardstock:  Powder, Pink, Thick Whisper White, Whisper White; Embellishments:  Burlap Ribbon; Adhesives:  Fast Fuse, Mini Glue Dots; Tools:  Stampin' Trimmer, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Bone Folder, Paper Snips, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Blender Pens

My second card features my first foray into Embossing Paste to create the cloudy sky for the flying piggy.  I've been hesitating to use this medium, so using the "She Believed She Could..." sentiment was apropos for this card.


Supplies I used for this project -- 

Stamps:  This Little Piggy; Inks:  Basic Black Archival; Cardstock:  Dapper Denim, Powder Pink, Whisper White, Silver Foil Sheets, Shimmery White; Designer Series Paper:  Color Theory Pack; Embellishments:  Silver 1/8" ribbon; Adhesives:  Fast Fuse, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals; Tools:  Stampin' Trimmer, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Bone Folder, Paper Snips, Embossing Paste, Palette Knives, Pattern Party Decorative Masks

My third card features some water coloring for this speckled piggy.

Oh my gosh...what a trio of fabulous cards! All three are adorable...but I think my fave is the first one. It's clean and simple perfection!!! Thank you for the inspiration!

Dawn Tidd

What a cute trio of cards, Mickey! I love each and every one of them, Mickey. That spotted pig is adorable though, great way to use the "kisses" stamp!


Three great cards and all so different. Can't wait to see the inside of the first card. TFS!

Rochelle Blok

Three fabulous cards Mickey!! Three different looks but they all look fabulous. Love them all!


So cute and fabulous bunch of cards showcasing this set off! I love the little kisses on the last pig it made me giggle. Love the clouds with your second one I've gotta try that. Love them.

Natalie Lapakko

All three cards are super cute and each so different! Now I can't wait to see the inside of the first card....

Tanya Boser

Mickey, these are fabulous cards! Every single one of them!! And I am so glad you took the plunge with the embossing paste, it is so fun to use!


Using the kisses to make a spotted pig was brilliant, and the embossing paste clouds for the flying pig turned out great, but that first CAS is my fave! Love the clean look of it, and the way the burlap ribbon mimics the dirt. <3

Bronwyn Eastley

Three fun and very different cards. You have really showcased the versatility of this set.

Nikki Spencer

What fun collection Mickey! They are all super cute, but l think my fave is the first one, CAS perfection! xx
