Happy New Year & We {heart} Heather!

Hi and Happy 2017! I hope your new year is starting off great! Mine got off to a little bit of a rocky start but today is treating me pretty well...Chuck's maple bars at work today, some super exciting happy mail, crafting...thanks Tuesday!

So this week is The Classroom at Ellen Hutson, we are showing some love for our friend Heather Campbell and her awesome designs for Avery Elle. I think Heather's designs are so awesome (she has the cutest little animal friends) that I couldn't resist playing along! The sweet little piggy from Hogs & Kisses makes me smile so I started with him...
To create this card, start with stamping Mr. Pig in Spun Sugar Distress ink on smooth watercolor cardstock.
Then create a little piggy mask. Cut a "hill" mask, saving the top and bottom of the mask. I just hand cut mine due to some crafty laziness but there are lots of cut hill die cuts.

Apply bottom hill mask and repeat "LOVE" word across top in gray. A MISTI makes the repeat stamping super easy.
Then apply top hill mask over LOVE background and use an ink blending tool to add some pale pink ink.
Remove the top hill mask & the piggy mask and color the pig. I used Clean Color Markers because they are my fav and I'm terrible with Copics (I'm taking your class in the new year Sandy Allnock!).
Finish with a few little hearts and "inside" in the middle of the big heart.
Thanks for stopping by and hope your Tuesday is awesome too!

xo,
Carly
