This Little Piggy....And This Little Piggy...And That Little Piggy....

Mastering the art of photographing white is a skill I haven't nailed yet, but don't focus on that.  Instead, ooh and aah over these adorably cute and happy pigs!  They all come from This Little Piggy and it's a set that's on the Retirement List.  So if their pink pudginess is one you can't live without, get the set now.

I stamped a variety of pigs on Whisper White cardstock in Sahara Sand ink, then colored them with Petal Pink Stampin' Blends.  Normally, Memento Tuxedo Black ink is what to use when coloring with Blends so that the stamped image doesn't bleed.  Since I wasn't going to be "working" the image with a lot of coloring and blending, though, it was safe to stamp with Sahara Sand.  I wanted the lighter color to add to the sweet fun of the card.

Yes, every pig was cut with a pair of Paper Snips.  Cutting is relaxing and the mind can wander as the task is done, so try it!  Who knows what problems you'll solve while cutting out 6 little pigs (if one of them is how to prevent red ink smudges from mysteriously appearing on envelopes and card elements when red ink wasn't even part of the project, please inform me immediately).

The clouds were filled with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, also on the Retiring List (now sold out).  To adhere Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, sparsely fill the clouds with Fine-Tip Glue and sprinkle on the glitter.  Shake off the excess and let the piece dry.  Spend the rest of the week finding glitter on your dog, on your bathroom mirror, and in your bra 🤔
