Birthday Card | Picket Fence Studios - "Drop By To Say Croak" Stamp/Die Sets

Hey there!

I am a huge frog lover and we have all kinds of frogs and toads in our yard; spring peepers that are smaller than my thumbnail, bright lime green tree frogs that cling to my front door in the spring and the huge "Fat Daddy” toad that lives under my driveway! And so I was very excited to use the “Drop By To Say Croak” Stamp & Die Sets on this birthday card! Aren't these frogs cute?!? - and each one has its own distinct personality!

I stamped a handful of these fun frogs on aqua card stock with Picket Fence Studios’ “Black Hybrid Ink” and they were simply colored and die cut. I also stamped, watercolored and die cut the rock/greenery image from the “Pond Scenery” Set and backed it with an extra die cut. A slimline panel was ink blended with “Salvaged Patina” Distress Oxide Ink using the “Slim Line Rainbow Stencil” and spattered with diluted ink and metallic paints.

I selectively die cut the middle of the NEW “Happy Birthday Word Topper Die” from black card stock and trimmed the length to fit the slimline sizing. The word topper die was attached to the stenciled panel and the rock scenery die cut was popped on top with foam tape. I added my sun bathing frogs to the scene, just relaxing and hanging out for some birthday fun! 

This entire panel was adhered to a black slim line card base and I finished the card with a few of the aqua-colored droplets from the NEW “Winter Lady Embellishment Mix Plus”. This mix is awesome and has so many different blue/aqua/clear droplets, gems, sequins and shaped bits - see below!
