ok, so I am back to 'cute' cards ;)
Hello Friends!! I have to get stampin' with this set because it is borrowed from my sister in law!! I created a card this morning for my Aunt. She has been ordering a lot of SU! stuff from me lately. I wanted to make a special card to 'thank' her.
I used the Unfrogettable stamp set from Stampin' Up! My color scheme is Pink Passion, Gable Green for the grass, Yo Yo yellow for the mushroom and the sky is Soft Sky and Tempting Turquoise.
I had some paper I had done the shaving cream technique to. I created the swirl YEARS ago! For some reason it was sitting on my counter where I stamp. I thought, hmmm, wonder what it would look like if I used it for the shell of the slug....and for the mushroom. So that is what I used some of it for! I stamped the snail on the Pink Passion swirl, then cut the shell out. I stamped the snail again on white, colored in his body with the VersaMark Pen, then clear embossed him to give him a nice shine. The mushroom was stamped in the yellow swirl then cut out. I will have to do a technique section for you all. I don't have the time to go through the shaving cream technique right now...sorry!! The frog was stamped on Pink Passion. I added dots with my White Uni-ball gel pen, then cut him out. The grass was created with my slit punch. I posted tutorial on that previously. The sky was brayered with the colors mentioned above....I did a ton of paper piercing...gotta get the Mat Pack from SU! if you don't already have it!!! I LOOOOOVE it! The punches I used were Designer Label and the 1 3/8" circle punch. I framed my brayered scene with Tempting Turquoise. I think that sums it up!! I hope you like!
Happy Stampin' Friends, come visit me again!!
