I dare you not to smile when you see this So Hoppy Together card pack. Five adorable cards with matching envelopes are snuggled together with a stylish belly band to show off the cutest frogs you’ve ever seen! The cards are quick and easy to make (video to come). You can get your So Hoppy Together Stamp Set (Item # 149725) for FREE when you spend $50 (before shipping and tax) in my online Stampin’ Up Store before March 31. But please don’t wait as some Free items are already gone.
Once you slide off the belly band to open the pack, the cuteness continues. The frog images have their own personalities and it was so much fun to put these together. My grandson’s fabulous teacher loves to write notes to her students to encourage and praise them. It’s a great way to foster writing in kids and makes them feel so important! I wanted to make this card set for her to use with her students. So I used designs and sentiments that would work for a teacher.
My goal was also to keep it simple with stamps, ink, and paper. I stamped the frog images with Staz On Jet Black Ink (Memento Ink works too). Then I colored the images with Watercolor Pencils, pressing harder on the outlines for a darker color and leaving a little white showing towards the center. Then the Blender Pens make the magic happen! I smoothed out the color by going over it with a blender pen. This completely changes the look to give you the images you see here. I am not particularly artistic so my version of this technique is just like coloring. Some Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush added the extra sparkle and a few dots and squiggles with a fine tip marker were the finishing touches. The sequins were added to cover up an accidental smudge but I really liked the result!
