ME Stamp Highlight: Hogs and Kisses

Hello and welcome back! Hope all of you had a fabulous weekend! I had quite a full weekend of wonderful family time for Thanksgiving and lots (and I mean LOTS!) of shopping with all the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals flying around. It’s going to be like Christmas on my front door all week. Hope all of you were able to catch some great deals this weekend, and if not Cyber Monday is still happening for many stores!

Before I wander off too far, let’s talk about the main event of today’s post, the Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight for Hogs and Kisses! This is such a darling set designed by Aida Zamora, and you would have seen these cute piggies as part of my card posted on Wednesday as well. I saved this cute pair for today’s card.

I stamped the hogs in a dark brown hybrid ink and colored them up with copic markers. Then I die cut the individuals out with their coordinating dies.

For my background, I heat embossed the large Heart in Bloom image in gold. I then blended over it with Aged Mahogany and Tattered Rose to create a soft glow out of the floral heart, and added some splatter for interest.

From the Hogs and Kisses stamp set, I selected the sentiment ‘love you pig time’ which I stamped in Versamark ink onto Autumn Rose card stock and heat embossed the words in white. I trimmed it down to a thin strip.

And finally, I added the hogs and the sentiment strip in the center of the floral heart with foam tape. Don’t they just look like such a happy couple? The design will work beautifully for a wedding card too!2
