Hi Friends, it’s EK. I don’t know about you, but with spring on the horizon, I am just craving outside and nature. I thought I would dive right into the season with the super cute Frog die set and some copic coloring.
Step One: Die cut the Frog die set out of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. Color the pieces with alcohol markers. I used copic marker G21, G82, G24, and YG67.
Step Two: Color the Frog accent pieces. I used Y00 and Y11 for the eyes, W5 and W7 for the ‘black’ bits, and R22 and R24 for the tongue.
Step Three: Using a liquid adhesive, adhere the Frog pieces. I used Kids Choice Glue.
Step Four: Die cut and color the pond pieces and lily pad from the Frog dies set. I used BG70, BG72, BG75 and BG79 for the pond and G24, G28, and G29 for the lily pad.
Step Five: Blend ink onto a trimmed piece of cardstock into an ombre design. I used Speckled Egg, Stormy Sky, and Faded Jeans Distress.
Step Six: Die cut a frame from 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. I used both the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set and Fitted Indented Rectangle die set.
Step Seven: Using 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the frame onto the ombre background. Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive adhere the background onto an A2 card frame.
Step Eight: Using both liquid adhesive and 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the pond, lily pad and frog onto the card.
Step Nine: Add a sentiment from the Prince & Frog Sentiment stamp set to the card frame in blue ink. I used Fade Jeans Distress Oxide.
Step Ten: Add frog prints from the Prince & Frog Sentiment stamp set to the corners of the frame.
I hope you are as excited about spring as I am. Let me know in the comments below which of the ECD dies reminds you of spring the most. Until then, happy crafting.
