Let's Celebrate!


Blog Hop 12: Cards for kids...


Hello! my fellow Stampers! This month I am participating in another international blog hop with Global Stamping Friends and boy have we grown - this month we have a large group of stampers joining up to share their adorable creations we have 29 people stamping with us this month!  We are stampers from all over the world, sharing cards for kids. Some of the projects may use products designed for kids and others tweak projects towards kids. For my project, I chose to use Stampin’ Up! two different ones - This Little Piggy's and Balloon Celebration stamp set.
This card started with a piece of Whisper White measuring 8.5 x 5.5 scored at 4.25, the layered pieces are Basic Black at 5.25 x 4.125 followed by the Melon Mambo at 5.125 x 4 and the final layer is whisper white at 3.75 x 5.
I decided that rather than having my pig hold the tradition balloon for his celebration he would catch a cloud and bow. How fun is that? I think it is cute. Imagine all the different things he could catch and take to the party!
To add some color to this adorable Piggy - I colored his ears with our watercolor pencils and use Calypso Coral on his body with Melon Mambo for his tail and the inside of his ears. His feet are colored with the Basic Gray pencil - all of this was gone over iwth a blender pen to bring some softness to the image. The cloud was colored in Daffodil Delight pencil and blender pen. The grass was colored with the Old Olive marker and some little flowers to bring a little bit of whimsy. 


This card could easily be done in other colors with any sentiment for any number of occasions.  I hope this encourages you to do your own challenge with stamps you have that are not really for kids per-say and challenge yourself. 
When you do, leave me a comment with what you have come up with! I look forward to seeing what you do.  In the meantime - skip on over to the next hop and you will see some more creative ideas! Let’s get stamping!
