Challenge-Create A Critter

Hi everyone! The Tuesday challenge over at Scrappy Moms Stamps is to use the Create A Critter cartridge. I received my Furry Friends stamp set last week, and it contains some really cute frog sentiments, so I decided to make a *froggy* set.

I decided to make a scalloped shaped lily pad with a straight edge
across the bottom so I'd have a place to stamp my sentiment. I picked the doily
card from the Wild Card cartridge and I used my Gyspy to hide the *holes*
detail around the scalloped edge. I cut the card at 2 1/2  with my trimmer
three times for four equally sized lily pads.
 The one edge is cut straight across the top on two of the lily pads,
but it doesn't matter-I covered that edge with my little froggy.
I finished the edge with some stitching made with my
sewing machine. I love this sentiment.
I cut my dragonfly out with the layer 1 feature and used my gypsy
to hide his face. After I cut them out I used a pen to add the eyes.
I cut two layers of vellum for the wings and just layered them together.
The BoBunny Wasabi Dot paper was perfect for my little frog.
I love that one side of the paper has a dotted pattern and the other side
is more of a solid color.

  • 3"  frog and all layers

  • 3/4" foundation dragonfly
  • 3/4" layer 1 shift  dragonfly (I used my Gypsy to hide face)
  • Wild Card cartridge pg.52
  • 5 1/4  foundation doily card

I love how these cards turned out. I used wobbles on the frogs for a little something extra.
