You’re Toadally Awesome!

Hi everyone!  Thanks so much for popping by today.

When I saw the Mushroom Card from the Enchanted Autumn SVG Kit I just had to give it a go 🙂  It’s such a great card shape for the Heartfelt Creations Winking Frog Collection.  It was also a lot of fun to color the sweet little images with my watercolor pencils 🙂

Instructions:

Cut and assemble the mushroom card according to the directions using paper from the Winking Frog Paper Collection as your decorative paper. The finished card measures 5″ x 6 1/4″. The fiddling frog was cut from the pre-colored images that come as part of the Winking Frog Paper Collection using the coordinating die.  All the other frog images were stamped on White Card Stock using Versamark and heat embossed with Watering Can Embossing Powder before die cutting them with the coordinating die and coloring them with Derwent Watercolor pencils. The water lily flowers were stamped on White cardstock with Versamark, heat embossed with Watering Can Embossing Powder and cut with the matching die.  Shape flowers with Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, make some single and some double blooms and add Prills to centers to finish them off. As the final finishing touch, add some sparkle using diamond stickles and a few dew drops topped of with a pre colored tag from the Winking Frog Paper Collection which was die cut using the Luggage and Tags Die.

Thanks so much for visiting.  Have a wonderful day!
