In honor of the Chinese New Year
that starts on Feburay 5th
and will be the
year of the pig, I made some
pig Valentine cards:
I did not make them by myself,
I had some help!
We want to enter our cards for the
Love is in the Air challenge on the
We started with downloading this cute pig image HERE
and after printing we colored the pigs with pencil and markers.
This card is made by my grandson.
He embossed the background and added some ink
and stamped the sentiment. I cut the pigs for
him and after he punched out some
circles I added them with a stapler to the card.
As there where some pigs left, we also
added some inside.
Here is one of my cards.
For the background I used two different
Tim Holtz stencils and the mini heart stamp
by Michael Strong and oxide distess inks.
The pig is colored with markers.
The sentiment is a freebie for you.
I made it up in Photoshop. Grab it by
clicking with your right mouse button
and save it to your computer.
For my 2nd card I started with the direct to
paper technique with oxide worn lipstick ink.
Next i stamped the xoxox Club Scrap stamp
and the sentiment ( Heart to Heart 2009).
After coloring and cutting out the pig,
I also stamped the mini hearts on a seperate
piece of paper and cut them out. Both are added
Thank you so much for looking
and have a creative day!
