CC155 TSSC6 Firecracker Froggie

Another card from yesterday - two in one day - must be some kind of miracle! Probably only happened because this card took literally 5 minutes.

I wanted to participate in some challenges I've had sitting on my stamp table this week, so this card uses MJ's Techno Stamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge - TSSC6. I am also *LOVING* all the cards I've seen with this week's Wednesday Color Combo Challenge over on Splitcoast - this week is CC155 - River Rock, Whisper White and Basic Black. Sooooo gorgeous!

I cut my GP 110# white cardstock at 5.5" x 8.5" and folded it in half. Rouned off ALL of the corners (front and back). Dug through my stash to find the designer papers that would go with this color scheme - I bought a HUGE slab at Hobby Lobby awhile back - 180 sheets of neutrals - black, white, tan, brown. I can't remember offhand what it's called but it's a lifesaver! Cut the full-card DP to 4" x 5.25" and rounded the corners. The other piece of DP is 1.5" x 4" and the River Rock mat is 1.75" x 4" with the left side rounded off. The twill tape is pre-printed with the sentiment - so fun! I stuck it down with red liner tape.

Stamped the boy froggie from the new So Hoppy stamp set from Firecracker Designs by Pamela in Palette Noir on GP 110# cardstock. This stamp set, along with EIGHT others, will be released tomorrow, March 1st, and available for purchase on Pamela's website!!! Outlined him with my Prismacolor markers, punched out with the Marvy Super Jumbo (blue) circle punch, and matted on a double scallop circle punch - Basic Black offset and layered over River Rock. I added the white dots with the gel pen.

3 people made my day!:
