Piggy good times

|

There are two things which can be highly addictive for crafters: Papercraft magazines and Pinterest. I love them both and can't get enough of it. I rarely use my Pinterest boards for inspiration but it's a great way to discover new products. Same goes for the magazines. 

The stamp set which I'm introducing today first caught my attention in Making Cards' September issue. I knew immediately that I had to have it! Designer and Copics Instructor Faye Wynn-Jones used the same stamps in the October issue for a different set of cards.

I wish I had more time for colouring but my "me-time" is limited to the evenings and so I craft until the wee hours to get birthday cards and commissions out in time. I'm already behind with all the birthdays this month. Oh dear.

There'll be a small batch of cards up next featuring these cute pigs from My Favourite Things. I sticked to Faye's colouring guide as she lists all the Copics used in the magazine. Here is my first card. I combined the image with Papercraft Essentials' number die which is this month's free gift.



















Jo Kill shares some really cool ideas in the magazine on how to use the die. I like how you can personalise the card with the age by using the negative die-cut.

Another thing... If you're thinking of getting a subscription but don't want to fork out too much, there's a January sale going on at moremags.com.
