Birthday Card + Peeking Frog Wafer die by Simon Says Stamp

June 30, 2019

Hello everyone,    for today I used  Peeking Frog Die by Simon Says Stamp to make a sweet birthday card.

I die cut a piece of watercolour paper and then I die cut it again but placing the die just next to the previous die cut shape.

Peeking Frog Die cut a circular window around the little frog face so by doing this the circular windows around the face intercept creating something similar to the shape of the top of a heart.

My first thought was using a craft knife to enlarge the window or to give it a different shape and make a shaker card but I  decided to use a die from Stacking Hearts by Honey Bee Stamps instead to easily give shape to the topper.

I then applied colours to the frogs using Zigs ( water-based markers), I also drew very basic frog bodies.

When the ink was dry  I  applied Salty Ocean and  Blue Print Sketch  Distress Oxide Inks over the bodies of the frogs and around the images.

I also inked a background panel using the same distress oxide inks and I sprayed with water using a Nuvo Mist Bottle to create all those little white speckles and texture.

 Using double-sided adhesive tape  I glued the heart-shaped topper to the background.

I splattered the card topper and backgrounds using a Nuvo Shimmer pen and  I also added white and black dots using a Posca white marker and a fine tip black pen.

Next,  I create little embellishments for this card.  I applied Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink on a piece of white cardstock and I sprayed with water. Then  I die cut it using  Mini Flowers and Leaves Die.

I changed the colour of the pinky mint leaves die cuts using a green Zig and glue all together in place.

For the sentiments, I used Big Happy die to die cut a piece of gold mirror cardstock and also a piece of craft foam and I glue them together.

The word: "birthday " is from "Beautiful Flowers Stamp Set". I stamped it using Simon Says Stamp black ink in a little piece of the pink distresses background I created to make the flowers.

I embellish the cards with Yellow Bird Glitter Nuvo Drops and Marina sequin by Simon Says Stamp.

That's all for today.

Happy crafting!
