Christmas Froggies, Stamp Surgery and Plagues

>> Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Ever wake up and have a card idea in your head?  Well, I woke up in the middle of the night and had the idea to take the Santa hat off the new Santa Puppy image and put it on the Frog on a Log image. I love stamp surgery!!!

I figured he needed to be in the snow to work for Christmas so I used a pine branch embossing folder and sponged it with some fun colors, then I did a few snow banks that I covered with Snowtex.  To finish it off, I added the All is Calm Christmas Greeting and the Triple Holly image plus some more Snowtex.  The images are colored with Prisma Pencils.

After I was done, I thought the froggie and hat could work with no snow if he was in South Alabama, California, or Florida - lol.  So I tried him CAS using the Brush Pussy Willows image behind.  
All these frogs made me think of the frogs in Exodus - the frog plagues.  I did a Bible Journal page on this scripture - I can't imagine how horrible it was to have frogs everywhere - plus I know they were not cute like this one!  I kept all the colors in the brown family on the image and used a white gel pen to add some additional dots (freckles?).  
Hope you are having a wonderful week.

These froggie Christmas cards are too funny. They make me smile! Love how you created these, great combos of images. I like your Bible journaling page too. Frogs are cute, but I don't want them in my house!

I love that froggy with his Santa! Too cute! Your background is just amazing and full of texture. And using that frog on your bible journal page really highlights that story!

Excellent job on the stamp surgery Nancy!! Can't get over how cute your Santa Froggie's are :) Love all the color and texture on the snowy card and then the simplicity of the warm weather frog. Wonderful journaling page too - awesome coloring on the frog!
