This week’s card features “So Hoppy Together” which is one of the free reward items from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.
My choice of colours were Call me Clover, Balmy Blue, Pineapple Punch and Grapefruit Grove. I stamped my frog first in memento black ink (onto some whisper white cardstock) then stamped this same frog image onto a post it note. I cut the post it note image out and layered this over the frog using the masking technique. This technique allowed me to stamp the water ripple over the frog to make it appear as if this cute little frog is actually sitting in a pond.
The peaceful reflection stamp set is really quite beautiful and I had lots of fun creating with it. Isn’t it funny how you can’t always see the beauty in stamp sets until you actually get to play with them! This, in my case is often dangerous as every stamp set I use I generally want! Background stamping of the foliage and the water ripples added some dimension.
The addition of the grapefruit grove and pineapple punch coloured dragonfly was the perfect touch to bring some colour back into this card. The DSP (designer series paper) used is from the 6×6 in color 2018-2020 range. I have been loving creating with this DSP lately. It just adds a little bit of something and who doesn’t love spot and stripes! I used both the square stitched shape framelits and the layering squares dies. I just happened to have some Call me Clover ribbon in my stash so I put a little behind my frog and then mounted on dimensionals.
My gorgeous little frog is coloured in using the Call me Clover light and dark stampin’ blend combo. The sentiment “Always thinking of you” suited the purpose of this card, this stamp was from the Beautiful Day Stamp Set. Perfect card for a frog lover!
If you love this frog stamp set as much as I do, all you need to do is place an order during Sale-A-Bration (3 January – 31 March) that is $90 or more in value and you can choose this or many other items for free!
