Guest Designer Pri - Cards For Dad & Brother Using Pool Piggies Stamp Set

June 15, 2017

Hello..Pri here today and I am sharing two male cards today using the newly released and super cute Pool Piggies stamp set...the main image in both my cards is the same but I have used them in very different settings...

My first card shows dad laying on a mat and reading a book...enjoying the summer and the sun and catching up on his reading probably...

I started with a plain white card base and cut the top layer to size using a Neenah speckled cardstock called stardust white...I then die cut a bright green cardstock using hillside border die as well as a couple of meadow borders using two different shades of green and adhered  then to the top layer...

Then using a cloud stencil and some blue ink,I sponged in lightly to create the cloudy sky...I stamped the sentiment using blue ink and then ran the whole top layer through my Cuttlebug using a large stitched rectangle die..

On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped and coloured in the mat and daddy pig and cut them out before placing them on the card front...

To embellish my card I simply added a few silver star sequins...

The second card I have made is for the best brother in the world...and I repeat stamped the life-ring/lifebuoy to create the background for it...

I chose a light blue card base for this card and a watercolour cardstock for the top layer...I used Versamark ink to stamp the images and heat embossed them using white embossing powder...

First I covered the larger sections with blue watercolour and then coloured in the life-rings using watercolour pens and a water brush...once the top layer was completely dry,I adhered it to the card front...

I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock using purple dye ink and die cut it and then adhered some craft foam behind it before placing it on the card...

Finally using some more craft foam I added the stamped and coloured in images of the life-ring and brother piggy...

Hello Spring...
