When Pigs Fly…for SIP189

Hello All!

Today’s Card is for a Gingham, Plaid or Stripe Challenge!

From Stamp Ink Paper #189   (SIP189)

Here is the Challenge!


Here is my Card!


I have Gingham Paper, but ever since I saw, a card, similar this

in the Occasions Catalog…I had to try!

Using a ruler and lining up diagonally on my Grid Paper,

I drew all the Blushing Bride lines and then colored in between 2 of those lines.

I then used Old Olive to draw the dark lines!

I love how the Plaid turned out…not the Pig.

I didn’t want to use my blends for bleeding to the back.

Next time…I will cut a piece of Whisper White Regular and draw and color

with the Stampin’ Blends, and then attach as a white on white look!


Here is the inside


This is going to my SIL. I hope she isn’t as critical as I!





Whisper White Thick- card base


This Little Pig- pigs, greeting, inside sentiment


Memento Tuxedo Black- all Stamping

Stampin’ Blends:

Blushing Bride- pigs, plaid

Old Olive- grass, stripes in pink plaid

Balmy Blue- inside pig wings!


Here is the Card, once more!


Yes, I cut all these pigs apart from their wording!

I wanted to be able to use them separately, and so I did!


Until the next Post…Blessings and Strength to ALL of you out there fighting Cancer
