Hogs and Kisses

June 7th, 2011

Happy Tuesday!  I have another Green Acres card to share with you today.  It might even turn into a Green Acres week ’cause I don’t want to stop playing!  This card uses TESC139 which is still open for entries.  You are NOT required to use TE stamps and all you have to do it upload your card to the SCS gallery with keyword TESC139 by Thursday evening and you’ll be entered to win a gift certifcate to the TE Store!

So here’s the little piggy from Green Acres all muddied up with liquid pearls!

I used the wood grain side of the new Chicken Wire/Wood Grain Taylored Impression plate on the Soft Suede panel and then sponged it with Early Espresso ink for a little more depth.  The little chicks are covered with Crackle Accents (ooo I just noticed that the large bottle of Crackle Accents is on sale – that’s a great deal!).  I dyed the cream seam binding by just going over it with the broad tip of a Copic marker.  Papers are from the Lily Bee Design This & That Tiny Tablet.  I had planned to sew around the edges, but had some issues with my machine so I just grabbed my trusty piercer and went around with that instead. Love that cute little piggie!!

You know, this is the time of year that I most miss being a Stampin’ Up! Demo.  I know lots of Demos have gotten their brand new catties already and I’m hoping to get my hands on one really soon!  I’ve seen several photos and descriptions of the new in-colors.  In case you haven’t seen them yet, check out this one by Dawn Olchefske.  She has very clear photos comparing the new colors to both existing and retire colors we are all familiar with.  Just thought I’d share.

I’m off to work.  Hope you have a great day!
