Two Cute Frog cards by designer Patty Folchert

Who says that a stamp set designed for babies can’t get some extra mileage? The frog stamp in this brand new Hampton Art/Oh Baby stamp set is irresistible. I love to find extra uses for my sets to expand their versatility, so here are two cards done very differently, but neither is a baby theme. A fun and colorful card suitable for a young to pre-teen girl and the other a Congratulations card for any age.

So Cute card by Patty Folchert

This card goes together quickly with the KI Memories Playlist collection cut-outs and papers. The base is made of the retro teal paper with the edge left on along the right side. Next I cut a ¼” border strip of the black line paper and added with 3D pop up dots. Then I stamped the frog in green ink onto plain white cardstock and fussy cut out. Using foam dots I layered the frog and black confetti dot paper onto the heart cutout as shown. The sentiment was stamped in charcoal ink onto the pink pattern paper and cut with one end angled. Last to add some pizazz I added the three mini banners at the top in coordinating papers and then green glitter dots for eyes and a flower sequin with a blue glitter dot center.

The second frog card has double versatility, why? The papers were from Jillibean Bean Soup/Witches Brew -a Halloween collection! As you can see they work just fine for an everyday card. The base was made with the orange retro print and the two large banners cut from coordinating 6x6 paper pad. Place as shown and add some of the brand new Soup Staples III Sides kraft circle tags. I stamped the sentiment onto one of the pea pod diecuts in black ink. The frog was stamped onto a grid pattern cream paper in green ink. Then I dressed up the circle tags with some of the new kraft tape and enamel stars. Then I created the flag by adding a toothpick to two papers and attaching with the kraft tape. 

There you have two frogs served up in two completely different styles using a baby theme stamp set. Super fun right? Hop on off to your craft room and work some magic with your stamp sets today!
