Piglet Card

How cute is piglet?? And to think he is made using the owl punch, isn't there anything that punch can't do? Still my fav punch!! I didn't come up with piglet myself i saw a card on stampin connection and just had to make one myself. I made my card a 5" x 5" to fit the scallop circle big shot die that i got for xmas :) not my regular size for a card but cool.

To make pigglet you will need
  • Owl punch for eyes, nose,body and head (cut of the feet)
  • bird punch for ears
  • word window punch arms & legs
Other supplies

  • So saffron cardstock
  • pink pirrouette card stock
  • Purely pomegranate card stock (NLA)
  • confeeti stamp set
  • short & sweet stamp set
  • perfect polka dots embossing folder
  • circle scissors plus
  • scallop oval and oval punch
  • Purely pomegranate ink pad (NLA)
  • Pretty in pink to ink around the edges of piglet

Chocolate Cake Slice box

Don't ya just love these yummy cake boxes, i sure do and had the best time making them. The lid lifts up so you can fill them up with yummy treats to give as a gift. I'm going to make some coffee/tea cards to go with so they would make an even better gift. If ya wanna make these cute cake boxes you will need to purchase the tutorial from creations on paper, sure it was only $5 or less.

I made different flowers to put on the top of the boxes, can't remember where out there in blog land that i learn t how to make them but all you do is cut 8 scallop circles out of the brown paper that comes in the stampin up box with an order,(or lunch bags would work too) screw them up, unfold, ink and layer  and put a brad in the centre to hold together then ruffle up a bit till it looks good.The leaves are the wings from the bird punch.
