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.

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!

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.

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.
