Hogs & Kisses using Barnyard Babies with video

Stamps from your stash. Do they get used enough or forgotten in lieu of something new? I’ve been digging in the drawer this week to use some “not-so-new” stamps for Valentines Day card ideas. The products in the Occasions Catalog are fantastic and I have so many new ideas but can’t forget that the stamps in the drawer were new once upon a time 🙂 Let’s check out Barnyard Babies as a sweet heart card. I think this project would be great for any friend or family member, not just a spouse or significant other.



The card base is made from Thick Whisper White card stock, which is sturdy enough to hold the panels well. I layered pieces of Pink Pirouette and Soft Suede card stock and used another piece of white as the main focus. I stamped tone on tone for the little piggies. Pink Pirouette is a soft pink and is nicely complimented by the brown of Soft Suede.


Measurements for this project are:
-Card Base: 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
-Soft Suede card stock cut at 4 1/4″ x 3 1/2″ (to sit under the pink)
-Pink Pirouette card stock cut at 4 1/4″ x 3 3/8″
-Whisper White (this in an additional piece) card stock cut at  4 1/4″ x 2″

The center panel was created by stamping the word image at random, all around the paper. I filled in the white space with pink heart from Subtles Enamel Shapes to bring in the pink coloring and balance the look.

For a visual demonstration of this project, take a look at the video I made for this project.
