Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight - Lovely Piggies

Hello, crafty friends! I'm here today with Mama Elephant highlighting the adorable Lovely Piggies and the coordinating Creative Cuts

I love making cards that tell a story, here the cupid is shooting his arrows at the adorable couple and they're going to fall in love and live happily ever after...awww, right?! I took it a step further and made it interactive by creating a hidden slider where the cupid moves back and forth across the cloud. 



I colored the images from Lovely Piggies with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating Creative Cuts. I used white Gelly Roll pen to add accents.

I inked an A2 sized Bristol paper with Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry Distress Inks to be used as my front panel. Then, I die-cut another A2 sized Bristol paper with the hill and the cloud dies from On The Hills Creative Cuts. I inked the hill panel with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn and then lightly inked the cloud panel with Spun Sugar Distress Inks. 

I cut apart the sentiment "Happily Ever After" from  Scripty Notes to stamp it going across instead of down on the short hill panel. The cut pieces can be put back together to stamp in the original layout. 


To build my slider, I die-cut the top of the front panel with the longer slider die from Straight Slider Creative Cuts. I added a penny to the back and the front of the die-cut space with a small square foam tape in between to adhere them together. Then, I added a trimmed acetate to the front penny to attach the cupid.

I mounted the front panel with two layers of dimensional foam tape to the card base and I also used two layers of foam tape to attach the cloud panel to the front. The space between the layers allows for the cupid to slide smoothly back and forth. 


To finish, I attached the hill panel and the images to the front panel with foam tape as shown. 

Don't forget to visit Mama Elephant to see more inspiration from the Design Team using the Lovely Piggies set.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful week ahead!
Hugs, Amy
