A week ago I saw Peachy Keen Challenge Anything Goes Popped Card and thought boy... do I have an idea for that one! And after an entire week of trying to make it come together, and searching for a fitting sentiment, I finally have it! It will go into my box of cards for OWH if I can bear to part with it. Doing this challenge has shown me that I can get creative and three dimensional with my stamps...no Cricut needed, but I used it anyway for a few things! (And, don't get me wrong...I LOVE my Cricut!)
So, here's what I did (in case you need to try it out yourself)...
Using my cute Peachy Keen Stamps, I stamped each image three times. Big Frog, Little Frog, and Big Sun. First, I cut out around the entire stamped image, one of each frogs and sun and put them aside. Then, I took another frog image and cut out front legs and with the head. With one frog image each left to cut out, I cut around the heads. Next up, the sun...with two images left, I cut out around every other point this time on one of the images. On the last sun image, I just cut out the center circle face. I colored each with chalk and my Glaze Pens, then pieced them together using foam squares.
After all of that fun, I got out my Gypsy and looked for accessories to go with my frogs.
The sentiment I used is a stamp from Hero Arts which I stamped twice then cut it apart to use on two lines instead of one long sentiment line.

I hope this card has left an idea or two in your head and a smile in your heart! Happy stamping! Until next time, be good crafters!
