Sending You Hugs

The challenge this week over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is clean and simple, along with the extra add on of using Hero Arts products if you wish. Well, I couldn't resist having a play with my new Playful Animals set by Hero Arts.

I started off by taking a Simon Says Stamp Stitched square die and cutting it using white cardstock. I cut off the left edge with my guillotine. I stamped the pig image from the Playful Animals set on to it and coloured him with Copic Markers. I then took a piece of paper from the Doodlebug Kraft in Color collection and also cut this with the square die.

The paper was added to a mini white card base (3.25" square in size) and then the image panel added to the right, as well as a small strip of silver glitter card. From the front, the stitching goes all around the edges of the card, which I thought gave it a nice touch. I stamped the sentiment, from the HA Hello Stamp & Cut set, on a separate piece of cardstock. I cut his out and added it to the card with foam tape. I finished off by adding a few Simon Says Stamp Moonshine sequins and adding Shimmer Pico Embellisher to the pig's nose.
Here are the links to what I have used on the card. Please click the picture to be taken to where I purchased it.

COPIC MARKERS: R85, R83, R81. W3, W2, W1. B00, B000.
