So...peeps! I went to the mailbox yesterday, and did the happy dance in front of too many people to count!
I had a package from Gina K. Designs, and it contained new stamps!
Ha! You all know how sinful it is to put new stamps away before inking them up, so I chose, instead, to put my ladder away for a while and 'play'!!!
With no further ado, Theresa Momber's newest set, Hang in There, accompanied me into my girl cave, where I nearly squealed with delight! How much fun these little critters are going to be!
I did this card today for Selma's 'Blast from the Past' challenge at StampTV.
The challenge called for paper piecing.
I pieced the frog with GKD's free (YES, FREE) downloadable green from the Timeless Solids package, and the tree trunk is pieced with the GKD free (YES, FREE) Wood Patterned Paper. The front is sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Antique Linen, and the stamping is done with Colorbox Chestnut Roan and Olive Chalk Ink. The sky is sponged with Stampin Up's Bashful Blue. You can't see in the photo, but his eye is paper pieced from the 'wood' paper, and is covered with glossy accents, so it looks like a real glossy eye!
Well, dear friends, I hope this cute little pop up froggie gets at least one squeal or giggle today!
I think he's darling!
Looks like he's perched up on that tree looking for his princess to kiss!
WARNING: No post tomorrow!
My best ever stamping buddy, Shirley, and I are taking a class from Michelle Zindorf in St. Louis.
Gasp! Gasp! Gasp!
I'm black and blue all over from pinching myself!!!
Hopefully the next thing I post will be a sheer work of art that I make in class tomorrow!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great Day!
