I was feeling a little bit whimsical as I was stamping this project. I think that all the pieces in this set, Love You Lots, are so adorable, especially this little guy!
Step by Step
To complete this project, you'll need cardstock cut to the following sizes:
5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Soft Suede (card base)
3-3/4" x 5" Mint Macaron
2-1/4" x 2-3/4" Crumb Cake
1-1/4" x 2-1/4" Soft Suede (to cut out oval)
1-3/4" x 2" Cucumber Crush (to cut out frog)
Scrap Pink Pirouette (to punch flowers)
1) Stamp frog image on to Cucumber Crush using Basic Black ink. Cut out image. Use white gel pen to color in eyes. When dry, use black marker to put black dots back in to eyes. Stamp Hardwood image on to small piece of Soft Suede. Use Big Shot and Layering Ovals framelits to cut oval. Use a corner rounder punch to round corners of Crumb Cake, then a stamping sponge with Soft Suede ink to lightly sponge around edge and Soft Suede oval. Adhere oval on to bottom of Crumb Cake piece, then adhere frog on to oval. Stamp "you" on to Crumb Cake using Basic Black ink.
2) Use a stamping sponge with Mint Macaron ink to sponge circles from Seasonal Decorative Masks (I didn't cover the entire piece, just in the center and working out towards the edge). Use the corner rounder punch on corners, then Big Shot and Soft Falling embossing folder to emboss. Use stamping sponge and Soft Suede ink to lightly sponge edge. Adhere to card base.
3) Lightly sponge a piece of doily with Soft Suede ink. Adhere doily and a few loops of linen thread to the backside of frog piece. Adhere to card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. Punch flowers from Pink Pirouette cardstock. Lightly sponge edges with Blushing Bride ink. Adhere White Perfect Accents dots to center of each flower, then attach to card front with mini glue dots. Attach sequins with mini glue dots.
