Stampin’ Up So Hoppy Together

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  The week is almost over, has anyone made plans for the weekend.

For today’s card I’ve used yet another Sale-A-Bration stamp set.  We’ve only got 4 days left till they are gone.  I used the Stampin’ Up So Hoppy Together Stamp Set.  I can’t help but smile every time I see these little frogs.  Here’s my card

My card also played along with 3 challenges today.  First is the Freshly Made Sketches #381.  Here is their sketch for the week.

I also joined in with Inspire. Create Theme: Pets Challenge # 039.

I played along with Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #331.  This is the first time I’ve done a challenge like this and I had a lot of fun with it.  I went down the right side.  Here’s their sketch.

I started by stamping the frog on the unicycle image from the So Hoppy Together stamp set on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored it in using my Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Big Shot and my Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  I added a few Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather and Lemon Lime Twist Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the artwork so that it looked like the frog was juggling.

I adhered a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper to a Basic Black card front using Snail.  I adhered a strip of Grapefruit Grove cardstock along the seam of the DSP using Snail

I stamped the sentiment from the So Hoppy Together stamp set in Versamark Ink on the Gingham Gala DSP and sprinkled it with my Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I heat set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment and the top of the frog on the unicycle from the So Hoppy Together stamp set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the frog in the same as I did on the card front.  I adhered a thin strip of Gingham Gala DSP on the left side of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail then adhered it to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the frog from the So Hoppy Together stamp set on the envelope front and colored them in the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a piece of Gingham Gala DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  This stamp set is one of many that is FREE with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration which will be ending on Sunday.  If you’ve been wanting any of the free items, don’t wait.  Grab them while you still can.  Happy Stamping!!
