As I was creating the CAS(E) This Sketch card I shared on Thursday (you can see it here), I had this fun idea to create the strips on the card with the page of tiny frogs from the Toils & Trouble Designer Series Paper. It was going to be a Halloween card with a cute Halloween sentiment. Once I sliced this paper into small strips, though, the pattern of frogs lost a little bit of its appeal (as most of them were cut off). Not cute I set off on a different journey for that card, but I set the frog-filled paper aside with a different idea for how to use it. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Toil & Trouble Suite. How fun are these frogs? The Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper frogs are super-cute, and the single frog from Cauldron bubble is a perfect accent above my sentiment. With non-Halloween card that features both the Cauldron Bubble Bundle and Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper, maybe there’s a lot to look at in both. Here’s a look at the Cauldron Bubble Bundle: And here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper: If you’d like to see all of the products in the Toil & Trouble Suite of products, please click on the image below:
- Calls for a Celebration. If you like to send friendly, supportive cards, then you might need to take another look at Calls for a Celebration, a stamp set in Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog. The set features sentiments that range from sweet-and-sincere to sweet-and-sarcastic. Everyone knows someone that should receive “YOU’RE pretty much THE GREATEST of all time in the history of EVER,” right? And who doesn’t love a celebration?! Here’s a look at this wonderful sentiment stamp set:My frog that’s perched on top of this fun sentiment was stamped with Cauldron Bubble, colored with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends and cropped with Cauldron Framelits Dies.
- Green Frogs. These frogs are colored with two shades of green – and you need both of them. When Granny Apple Green was introduced earlier this year, even I said it was a “permanent color collection version of Lemon Lime Twist (a super-popular In Color that retires in 2019).” While I still believe it’s partially true, Granny Apple Green has a bright, brilliant shine that’s all its own. Together, they are quite wonderful! If you like this combination of Whisper White, Lemon Lime Twist and Granny Apple Green
