We are excited to welcome our three guest hoppers for this month. The creations they have made are definitely worth checking out.
This month's hop theme is "Animals". I must admit when I first heard this, I was a little stumped as I do not do a lot of cards or projects that have animals on them outside of butterflies. I had it on the brain so much that I woke up one morning and had dreamed of the card I wanted to make. Have you ever had something like that happen to you? LOL...
My card has a a hippity hoppity Frog.... you just have to smile. I love the color combination of the green and bright yellow. I used three different Stampin' Up Stamp sets with this card - Work of Art, Gorgeous Grunge and You're Sublime.
I used Cucumber Crush and Daffodil Delight for my color combination.
I colored in the little toad using my blender pen and the Cucumber Crush color. I stamped the Chevron's in the Daffodil Delight and splattered the top with the Gorgeous Grunge set in Cucumber Crush. I used linen thread, flags and sequins as accent pieces to the card. I popped the lovely little froggy with dimensionals.
For my project, I created a Frog Prince using the Playful Pals Bundle.
I stayed with my color combination and used a pencil to stamp the little circles on the base of the frog.
This would be a perfect little treat holder or party favor for a birthday bash.
I really had a lot of fun with this challenge.
I am so glad that you joined me this month and hope that you will continue to "HOP" on down the line.
I hope you have enjoyed my little frogs! Don't forget to participate in the giveaway!
