Hopping Birthday

>> Sunday, May 13, 2012

Good Morning. I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Today I want to share a fun stamp from DRS designs. The Frog on a log 252H, and the soon to be released stamp Hears Hopping Birthday . I just love these stamps.

For my card I used the wax paper resist technique for the background. You use glossy card stock, cut to size that you will need. I sponged the card stock with Antique Linen Distress Ink. Take a piece of wax paper and wrinkle it as much as you want. Lay it on top of your glossy card stock then I covered it with a clean piece of  paper. With a hot iron, iron the sandwich lightly, not for to long. Remove the glossy card. Then I sponged Peeled Paint Distress Ink over the entire card.

I stamped the cute Frog on a log 252H onto white paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I cut a cloud mask and used my air brush to spray the sky. Then I used my trusty copic marker to color the image. On another piece of white card stock I stamped the Hopping Birthday with the Tuxedo black ink then I used a rectangle spellbinder die and cut the image out, keeping the image in the die I sponged peeled paint Distress ink. Both images were layered onto dark brown card stock. I layered the background paper onto dark brown card. Then wrapped jute string around and tied a bow. This was attached to a light green card. The frog image was pop up and the greeting was attached to the card front.

Have a wonderful day,


Copic: B000,B00,E00,E33,E53,E56,YG95,YG05,G99,BG11,BG13,BG15
