I was messing around this afternoon and came up with this card.
The list of products that I used took long to list then it did to make the card 🙂 Started with a base of Basic Gray. On a panel of Pool Party I stamped the waves from High Tide by stamping off first in some areas. Since I was using Basic Gray ink I did not want the waves too dark.
I then stamped the frog (Old Olive) and bees (Daffodil Delight) from So Hoppy Together, again in Basic Gray, cut those out with the Hop Around Framelits. Using Mossy Meadow I cut the lily pad and flowers. Since these dies are rather small I was able to do all this in one pass on the Big Shot. To give the lily pad and flowers some texture I ran those through the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder. I used Score Tape for the Lily Pad, all other cuts were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Once I was finished with the Pool Party Panel I attached a piece of Animal Expedition DSP behind it. The sentiment is from So Hoppy Together and that was stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and punched with a scalloped circle.
For some reason when I see a frog I always think of a grammar school friend of mine. We might have chased frogs together in a creek close to home when we were kids. I just might send him this card.
Until next time !!
