One of my friends recently signed up to Stampin' Up! simply to get the amazing value starter kit!
Did you know you could do that?! You can buy the kit without any obligation at all to make sales and you could customise your kit to suit your styles! If you're interested and would like some more details just email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
So Kat chose the Button Buddies stamp set as one of her sets in the starter kit and I got to have a play at my last crafty get together. This was her design...
Isn't it cute! Kat has done quite a bit of card making before signing up, and she was totally at home sharing her project with the rest of us and took to demonstrating it, like a pig to mud lol!
The card base is Very Vanilla cardstock folded in half and then run through the Big Shot using the Scallop Circle Die. Next we ran a strip of Certainly Celery DSP from the Subtles collection through the Big Shot with the same die, then snipped it to create some grass and glued at the base of the card.
On a piece a Very Vanilla we then stamped piggy in Rose Red ink, cut him out and glued him to the base. We then stamped out the 'nose' and cut this out, using a dimensional sticky pad to raise it up/create a 3D effect.
Finally we stamped the 'happy birthday' sentiment from the 'Create-a-Cupcake' stampset in Rose Red ink onto some Very Vanilla card and punched it out using the Word Window Punch and again used dimensional sticky pads to attach to the base.
