Cute Froggy

Here is a cute card I made with a digital stamp from Imagine That Digistamp. I fell in love with the frog in the pocket and knew what kind of card I wanted to make.

I first printed the stamp on card stock and colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers. 
1. I took two matching decorative papers from a 6x6 paper pad and glued them together so I had a pattern on each side.
2. Next I cut out the digital image using a stitched rectangle die on my Cuddle Bug and attached it to the side with the polka dots.
3. I scored the upper right corner and folded it forward. I then found 2 buttons that matched. I thread some string through the dark green button and made a bow and used glue dots to glue the buttons together and then glued them to the folded corner.

I hope you were inspired by my card. Please check out Imagine That Digistamp.

For my second card I used a Beet stamp set. I had an idea and put the beets into a canning jar. I did this by using the masking technique. I love how it turned out.

I made this card for a Swap and thought it came out so cute. I stamped the bunny on Neenah cardstock and colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers. I then cut into a oval and turned the die upside down and traced the outside of the die to make a border for the image out of pink polka dot DSP. Then I die cut a frame to match my border in the middle of my card. I then added a piece of pink glitter tape on my border. Finally I added some matching green dots in the right corner.



I am the last blog in the hop.
I hope you all have a wonderful and Blessed Easter. Thank yo for hopping with us.

For today's hop I made two cards to share with you. My first card is for a girl who is not feeling well. If you look at the birds they are giving a flower to make her feel better and I thought since it is close to Valentine's Day I added the hearts to the Band-Aids.


I saw this card on YouTube by: Randi Collins It is called Stampin Up Get Well Tissue Holder and I wanted to make it because I thought it was super adorable! I love the little box of tissues and the bowl of soup. This was such a fun card to make. I know it will cheer up who ever is not feeling well.

For my inspiration I made this awesome Goofy Birthday card. I used my Cameo to write Let's Party!! and then I searched Google and found a Goofy dancing and thought it was perfect. I printed it out and colored him and added a action wobble to make him dance. I chose Goofy because he is my favorite!

I found this really cute stamp set from Close To My Heart at a rummage sale and I knew it would be perfect for the hop. I stamped the animals twice once on the card and once on a piece of paper. I cut each one out and used them as a mask. I then took a background stamp that reminded me of a rain forest and used two green inks from Stampin' Up. I then used Mellow Moss (Stampin' Up) to ink the edges and add color to the white areas. I then colored the cute animals with colored pencils and a blender pen. I added pink to the Elephant's cheeks and to the Alligator's flower and then I added glitter to the animals with glitter pens. I hope you like it as much as I do.
I hope you all enjoyed visiting The Wild Side.
