I have two cards to share with you today. The first one uses both the new Kiss Me Mini and the new Plywood background. I really like the snarky sayings on the new mini. They're definitely going to give someone a smile, or laugh, on the receiving end of a card.
The background is stamped in Tim Holtz walnut stain ink with brushed corduroy and vintage photo inks stippled over and around the edges of the panel to give more of a "wood grain" feeling. The frog was then stamped in memento black and colored using prismacolor markers before stippling tumbled glass distress ink around the edges for the sky. I only added brushed brass brads for embellishments.
My second card uses the new Plywood background along with the new Tree Frogs set. Again I stamped the background in walnut ink before stippling brushed corduroy and vintage photo inks to give the "wood grain" feeling. I then stamped the frog onto scrap white card stock, colored using prismacolor markers, then cut out and set aside. After die cutting a few leaves using a Spellbinders leaf die set, those were added using glue dots before adding the cut out frog using dimensionals. After adding my saying along with some brads, I added three ladybug stickers for the final touch. Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs to leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.
