This Little Piggy…. Flying high with Embossing Paste

A few weeks ago I attended a Stampin’ Up! team training event… as was totally honoured to be asked to present a technique to the other ladies attending. First of all this scared the pants off me! I have been suffering recently with my anxiety and panic disorder, but I am trying really hard to push through… and I knew that the ladies coming would be happy and understanding! So I agreed. Then came the next problem….What technique to showcase!

I have been making heaps of cards projects recently using Fine-Tip Glue… and did a video recently on how to use this fab glue as a Mask. So… I have a heap of projects to share using Fine-Tip Glue. But I thought today’s card was particularly special…

She Believed she could, So she did Fun Encouragement card using This Little Piggy and Embossing Paste from Stampin' Up!

This card started life with the background… The card base is Soft Sky, with a Soft Sky layer on the top. This layer has fab dimension thanks to Stampin’ Up!’s Embossing Paste which I have used along with the Pattern Party Decorative Masks to create fluffy clouds.

The piggy was stamped in Basic Black archival ink, and then ‘coloured in’ using Fine-Tip Glue. This takes a while to dry, and I left it overnight. Once dry I added a hint of Powder Pink ink with a sponge over the top and die cut the piggy using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies. The ‘She Believed She Could’ sentiment is actually attached to the bottom of this piggy stamp, but I didn’t want it underneath our flying piggy here… so I used a Sticky Note to avoid inking it when I stamped the piggy and then stamped it separately, along with the ‘… So She Did’.
