Pinterest is one of the best ways to find ideas on your next project.  You can start with an idea on the stamp set or color combination you may want to use, or just start exploring layout ideas without searching for anything in particular.  There is a world of inspiration out there, you just need to start looking!

I started my Pinspiration search with two stamp sets in mind and found this pin for This Little Piggy, and this pin for Tabs For Everything.  From these ideas, I created this fabulous birthday card!

Fabulous Birthday / This Little Piggy stamp set / Tabs for Everything stamp set / Picture Perfect DSP / Myths & Magic washi tape / Stampin' Up! / StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

The Picture Perfect Party DSP stack made the perfect base for my card.  I then used a piece of thick whisper white cardstock and placed more dsp and a strip of dazzling diamonds washi tape to the left and right sides, creating a frame for my main image.

My birthday pig was stamped in archival ink and then colored using my Aqua Painter and Powder Pink ink.  The heaviest color was applied in the shadowy areas to give my pig added dimension.  I also added a gold crown from the Tabs For Everything stamp set to the pigs head and fussy cut the entire image for perfect placement on my cardfront.

I’ve got to say that I really love how this card turned out!  I didn’t realize how great the Tabs For Everything stamp set is and just how versatile it could be.  I picked out the relevant words for a birthday event and stamped them in various colors.  I then cut out each word.  A mess of gold thread was laid out on the front of my card and then each cut word was applied “randomly” with Stampin’ Dimensions, used to keep my thread in place.  Finally I added some black sequin throughout the words.
