The Frog Prince

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog.

We have a new release of dies in our online store. If you haven't seen the Magical Fantasy release yet, you have to drop by the store and check it out. These new dies are all so cute and whimsical. There are 27 new designs and I am in love with everyone of them. 

The new dies are currently 25% off and in honor of National Scrapbook Day there is also a 60% off sale on select CottageCutz dies. 

Today, I am featuring the Frog Prince die. I got my inspiration from the book of the same name that my 8 year old granddaughter just read. She likes it when I send her a card that is similar to the book that she just read. She saves them all. So this one will make her laugh. Let's get started with the details on how I created the card. 

Step 1: As I have said so many times before, having a layout in mind at the start of my card is always a big boost for me. It jump starts my creative thought process. I love working with the sketches that are out there in the online world. That way I just choose the colors and designer paper and I am good to go.
I liked this week's sketch #748 from Splitcoaststampers. I knew the slightly off center panel would work for my main frog image and also allow my designer paper to be seen.  
lovely lipstick card base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
designer paper layer: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
image panel: 3rd largest wonky rectangle die & 4th largest rectangle die
I cut my frog prince and layered him on a white background. I sponged some clouds and a little green slope and attached him with dimensional adhesive. 
The 3 little frogs are from the Garden Gnomes 1 stamp & die combo. I colored them with alcohol markers and used the die to cut them out. 
I stamped my sentiment on white cardstock and used a corner rounder on the corners. For the layering panel I used the 2nd largest of the stitched rounded rectangle die. 
Step 2: All my elements are cut and stamped, I an ready for  the card assembly. I attached the designer paper to the card base with double sided tape. 
The image panel is also attached with double sided tape. I moved it a little more to the left to accommodate the other frog images. 
The little frogs are attached with dimensional adhesive. I tuned one on his head just to make him a little silly. 
To finish off my card I attached the sentiment with double sided tape. That's it for me for this week. I hope I have given you an idea for using the Frog Prince die. See you next Saturday!
