These Little Piggies Say “Happy Mother’s Day”

I’ve been able to convince the Little Piggies that they needed to come for another holiday at my house.

They were Nanna Papercraft’s Prize Patrol stamp set from OnStage (visit her on the Paper Adventures team blog here), but she has been very generous in letting me borrow them.

I can’t order my set until the catalogue starts in June!!!


I thought the cute little piggies would make great Mother’s Day cards.

Though this set doesn’t specifically have sentiments for Mother’s Day, I was able to add in other sets in my collection to create this theme.

You could do the same for birthdays!

I’ve used the Playful Palette DSP for the backgrounds – it’s on the retirement list at the moment (at a discount!).

Since Sweet Sugarplum is one of my favourite colours, and the piggy is pink – it was perfect for these cards!!!  The orange was just a bright & cheerful bonus!


The first card uses the ‘because of you’ stamp from Oh So Succulent and the Mother’s Day stamp from Circle of Spring.

I thought they worked well together with the happy flying pig!

I love the piggy in the next card – it’s just so happy!

I masked out the ‘you make me’ above the happy and added in the Mother’s Day sentiment from the Thoughtful Banner stamp set.

And the final card is actually where this trio started!

This Little Piggy says, Happy Mother’s Day!

These three cards will be part of my market stock for Monday’s open house!

Happiness is doing things you enjoy – and a large part of that for me is making pretty things for others to delight in!

I hope there’s some inspiration in these cards for everyone!

We all spend so much time on the internet – blogs, Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook!

Translate all those good ideas into some craft projects of you own.

Whether you take some elements of a card and make it your own, or if you copy the whole card and get your craft on!

Happy crafting,

Hedgehog Friends Shaker Card

We’re off to a birthday party this afternoon, which means another cute card!

Today’s fun creation is a shaker card using the Painter’s Pallette easel, Love You Lots hedgehogs and a birthday banner from the Time of Year stamp set.

I’m still having a blast experimenting with products from the new catalogue!  Love You Lots and Time of Year are both hostess sets.  They are specially priced & can only be purchased with Stampin’ Rewards.  In Australia, all workshops & orders over $250 start earning Stampin’ Rewards!

Yep, another shaker!  If it shakes, spins or slides, then I’m all over it at the moment!!!

This card was easy to make using the basic shaker card combination:

  • front panel (easel)
  • window sheet
  • foam adhesive strips
  • back panel (hedgehogs)

Tip: Use your embossing buddy on your window sheet & back panel to reduce the static and help your shaker filling to move more freely!

The new Layering Square Framelits made making this card a breeze!

I filled with fine glitter (a first for me) and sequins.  You have to be careful when making shaker cards that you don’t overfill them.  Less is more!  Kelly x
