Hogs and Kisses

Hi everybody,

Jill here, and this week, I've got some cute piggy kisses for you...

Using the new awesome 'Hogs and Kisses' set from Avery Elle.

I, literally, fell in love with this set as soon as I saw it.  You get a pig, a cow, and a sheep, all holding hearts, with a choice of sentiments to pop in the middle of them - oh, and also two sweet little chickens.  Now I get that sounds a little weird, but they are just adorable - so if you haven't checked them out yet - you definately should!  In my world, weird is good!

So I started by stamping out my little piggy, twice, as I knew I wanted to build the heart up a layer, and coloured using Copics.  I then took a panel of card and die-cut it into sections using Lawn Fawn's Grassy Border, and the cloud from Mama Elephant's Landscape Trio, to build-up a little background scene.  I coloured the grass and the sky, again, using Copics.  I cut Lawn Fawn's Say Cheese die, and, using foam adhesive for dimension, added it around my little scene.

My background is the Sketched Chevron Background stamp from My Favourite Things, and is stamped outo white card using Hero Arts Soft Pool Shadow Ink.

I added a little banner of vellum which I had stamped the 'XO' from the Hogs and Kisses set onto, and added a couple of pink enamel hearts.  I added a twirl of Lawn Fawn's Pink Lemonade Twine behind my Polaroid scene, before adhering everthing in place, matting onto black card, and then onto a white card blank.

I really hope you like it, as always, everything is linked below.

See you next week.
