DTC #119 (S.A.E) with Piglet Twist - Hogs & Kisses

Here is my Design Team card for Double Trouble #119 "Something, AnyThing, EveryThing" and using Twisted Sister's optional twist to "Include a Pig/Piglet" for another chance at DTC random draw with another chance at DTC if you use a pun. 

So, as I was looking through my stash found some pre-stamped cute little Christmas piglets. If my memory serves me right it was a stamp set (a give-a-way for some at our December 2021 Copic Boot Camp) my daughter didn't want to trade a floral stamp so I pre-stamped (2) sets of the three piglets. 

I'm unable to tell you the vendor because my daughter could not find the stamp set in her ENORMOUS stash. So... if there is any crafter out there that know the vendor of these stamps pleaseeeee put the vendor in my comment area... the first to recognize and direct me to the vendor and where these stamps can be purchased will be sent a small gift.  I want that stamp set.  In fact I loved them so much I created three cards.  

"Walking in a Vintage Wonderland" 

Now who would have thunk... that Twisted Sister's optional twist to include piglets could be used to meet the requirement for our previous partner at Jingle Belles "Walking in a Vintage Wonderland".  What a find in my stash, just need to conquer the Vintage.   

For the Vintage look:  Went back to a distressing technique which was used quite frequently back at least 20 years ago.  Can still hear the sound of the distressing technique. Using your ink pads were the most annoying sound, then we graduated to a sponge technique which softened the sound.  However, as annoying as it was we would all start laughing and we would distress and laugh that much harder.  Our tool again has been updated, a Blender Brush, and I'm missing the annoying sound, but I'm still laughing.  

All the cards were created using the same frames, paper and copic colors.    

My First Card... This was the only one using the snowflake stencil on the pink doily patterned paper for the background.   

  My second card... the only difference was using the plaid for my background.  

My third card...  tore edges of pink doily patterned paper for my background.

Those little piggies really are so darling!! I hope you can find where they came from! I love the colors you used and all the gray plaid included in the details. Great job making 3 while you were at it! I'm trying to do that more when I have supplies out :)
