Winking Frog by Heartfelt Creations from Cut At Home!

Today I'm lucky enough to share a new collection from Heartfelt Creations-Winking Frog from Cut At Home!

144058_SUPER__000_20160218_1                      frog-05 IWIA-FROG (1)                               IWIA-FROG

This is an adorable collection where you get lots of stamps to choose from, that have coordinating dies!

Here is the 12x12 paper collection:

There are 24 double-sided papers in this collection. Lots of tags, banner strips, cut-a-parts...all with beautiful images. There are even a few pages, where you can use the coordinating dies to cut out the images directly from the paper collection. Heartfelt Creations stamps, dies & patterned papers are very high quality.

You can make wonderful cards, scrapbook pages, mini albums, and much, much more from this collection! I love that it all coordinates for you, taking all the guess-work out!
I'd like to share a 5 1/2"x 5 1/2" easel card, using this beautiful collection:

2016-03-14 15.32.34  and the inside: 2016-03-14 15.32.13

For my card-base, I cut a piece of Kraft cardstock to 11"x 5 1/2". On the 11" side, I scored it at 2 3/4", and 5 1/2". This gives me my easel card.

2016-03-14 15.32.58 (I've used white cardstock for demonstration)

I then cut a second mat for my card-front to 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". Using a Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Rectangle Large Die, I cut a piece from the front, to give my card a 'window'.

2016-03-14 15.33.59 For my card, I used a piece of the Winking Frog paper collection. I cut a piece to go behind my window, then added a piece of Heartfelt Creations Clear Cardstock. To give my clear cardstock some texture, I first ran it through my 
Silhouette Cameo in a 'brick' pattern. Here's an up-close look:

To decorate my card, I used the patterned paper, and coordinating die to cut out the two adorable frogs on the lily pad:

I've also added the row of mushrooms from the patterned paper as well, using the coordinating die:

2016-03-14 15.31.48 It's hard to see in the photos, but I added Glossy Accents to all the mushrooms & lily pads. It gives it such dimension & character.

Here is what this adorable paper looks like up-close:

2016-03-14 15.34.50      2016-03-14 15.34.55 If you did not want to color the images yourself, you can simply use the die that coordinates & cut them out, like I did on the above card.

For my flowers, I've used the Water Lily Cling Stamp. I've stamped out several on white cardstock with Versamark ink. I then added white embossing powder & heat-set them.

2016-03-14 15.34.10

For a quick coloring, I've used my Tim Holtz Distress Markers, then ran them through my Sizzix Big Shot Machine with the Water Lily Die.

Emma Lou from Heartfelt Creations has a wonderful video tutorial on how to shape your flowers:

I followed her video, using my Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit...which is a must-have in my craftroom:

2016-03-14 15.33.20 This kit makes it so easy to get dimensional flowers!

For the inside of my card. I've added a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" mat. It has the title "Life is good" on the paper collection. I cut that strip out, backed it with chipboard, then added it back to the inside of my card. This gives some dimension to it, which holds my easel card in place for display. I fussy-cut the mushroom with the frogs in the center. Added a lily pad with flower, and a scallop rectangle for my sentiment.

To finish off my card, I've added lots of Glossy Accents.

2016-03-14 15.31.28

Here's a closer look at the dimension that Glossy Accents gives my card:

2016-03-14 15.31.51
By adding droplets to my lily pad, it makes it look like water drops.

This collection is so fun to play with.

I've made a video showing each of these stamps & dies, along with a flip-thru of this beautiful paper collection. For a closer look, please stop by Cut At Home's Blog. I will also have a full list of supplies used!

I hope you've enjoyed taking a look at the beautiful collection that Heartfelt Creations has once again hit a home run with this collection!
