Hog Heaven Slider Card

Good afternoon!  It's a beautiful overcast day here in California! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far! I thought this would be the perfect weekend to create some cards!

Today I thought I would make a card with the new stamp set from the MFTstamps haul.   This set is the Hog Heaven stamp set.  If you'd like to see all of things from the haul, please visit my last post where I shared all my craft goodies with you!  I am also using the new slider foam pieces that MFT has.  I wanted to try them out!

This amazing set has multiple hogs on it (cute little piggies as I like to call them) and quite a few super creative sentiments! I figured I would be making quite a few cards with this adorable set so I colored in a few sheets of stamped images.  I stamped out about two of everything from this set.  I colored in all the images using Copic Markers colors R20, R21, and a touch of RV06 for the cute little piggies, B00 for the wings on the flying pig, R24 for the girl pig's bow, B39 and E07 for the box as well as the flower pot and two shades of each color for the flowers, BV00, BV04 for the purple, Y00 and Y08 for the yellow, Y08 and Y17 for the cupcake, B00 and B02 for the blue flower and BV00 and R20 for the flowers in the left corner.  These images were fun to color and then I cut all the images out using my Silhouette Cameo with the PixScan Mat (I offset by .04").  

I admit, I had nothing specific in mind when I was putting this card together.  I knew I wanted the pig to slide but other than that the ideas just wandered around in my head. Hopefully some of those other ideas will come to life and I will have more cards to share with you soon! :) 

I started by cutting a green hillside using some hill dies.  I used two different colors so that the hills didn't fade into one another. Recently I purchased this paper pack called Pink Lemonade and it has so many cute pages in it and they're all on textured paper. I don't think you can see the texture in this picture but it's very cute in real life. Using Lawn Fawn's Slide on Over dies, I cut the slightly curved slide path.  I also used this one because it was nice and short, I didn't have that much room for him to slide since I wanted both pigs on this card. 

For the sliding pig, I cut a strip of paper from the same background paper I used for the popped up front panel of this card  and adhered it behind where the slider piece was onto my base card so that it wasn't just white in the background.  I used the new MFT Stamps Slider Elements I adhered one side to a small piece of paper so it would slide and then other to the pig. Using foam tape,  I created an area for my slider piece to fit perfectly so the pig would "fly" effortlessly.  I also added foam tape on the back of my panel so the entire front panel was raised up.  I did this so that the pig would have room to move!

Last but not least, I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops because I feel everything should have a little sparkle or shine!  

This was the finished product.  I hope you are inspired and go out there and create some handmade beautiful gifts/cards/etc.  Have a wonderful weekend!
