I bought a Sugarpea pig stamp set , thinking I could use one to make a birthday card for my niece but they were smaller than I'd imagined. (Does that ever happen to you? It can be hard to tell when buying online).

So I decided to put the pig on a podium from a W plus 9 set. I added stars (brand unknown) and a Hero Arts sentiment, and coloured with Promarkers.

  2. It has happened to me often that the size of the stamp is not what I've imagined. I love your idea with the pig on the podium -I thought this was one complete stamp when I saw this! Great job, love this card!

    Love Chrissie xx

  8. Yes, even when the dimensions are listed I have a hard time. Sometimes the stamps are even bigger than expected!

    This is adorable, I love the grey and aqua combo.

  9. Love your little performing pig and the gray/aqua color combo is fabulous! Thanks for sharing with us at Cards in Envy.

  10. Small or nit, he's a fun, sweet pig and he looks great placed on the podium. Yup, has happened to me too, it's hard to judge the size when not holding the item in your hand.

  11. Love that image...super card!
