Frog Hop

Welcome to StampNPlus Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!!


If  the Stamp N Plus blog sent you over for a visit then you are exactly where you are meant to be. If you just happen to be visiting, then you should head over to StampNPlus for the beginning of this fabulous hop!
This month the Design Team was working with this sweet tree frog stamp. He's so darn cute...love those toes! I coloured him and his branch with my Prismacolor pencils, fussy cut him out and mounted him on a piece of black cardstock so he'd show up against the green background. That background is embossed with a bamboo folder and distressed with ink to allow the pattern to pop. Froggy was then mounted on foam tape for dimension. The two sentiments were computer-generated, edges inked and matted on black. Once they were adhered, the green cardstock was layered on more black and then on yellow and white dotted paper. A slim border of the white card was allowed to peek out around the edges. Blingy stars were added to opposite corners to lead the eye through the card.
Now it's time to visit Melissa and check out what she's done with our friend, Froggy.
