Stamp the frogs, dragonfly and mushrooms from the Froggy Hangout and Leaping Frog Stamp Set.  I used Ex-Press It Blending Cardstock and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  You can use any paper compatible with your ink.  The images were colored with the following combo -  (Purple flower - BV000, BV00, BV13, BV17, Frog - YR21, YR18, Y11, YG13, YG17, YG67, W3, Dragonfly - V00, V05, V09, RV00, RV04, RV17, YG11, YG17, YG67, Mushrooms - BV00, BV13, BV17, #40, E41, E44, RV00, RV04, RV17). Die cut the images with the coordinating die.  Cut 3-4 images from pruple cardstock and adhere to the bodies of the frog images for strength.   Adhere the extra pruple cardstock images to the dragon fly by adding Dries Clear adhesive to the body of the dragonfly.   When dry, fan each layer of the wings up for dimension.  Add Nuvo Dandelion Yellow and Bubblegum drops to the mushrooms for a fun whimsical look.   Adhere the frogs, mushrooms and dragonfly with a small amount of double sided mounting tape.

Die cut the borders from the Fleur Border Basics Die and adhere with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.  Emboss the sentiment, Celebrating Your special Day with Versamark Ink and Fine Detail Black Embossing Powder. Heat Set.  Cut with an oval die and mount with a purple oval die slightly larger.   Adhere to the last page, under the frog.

Create a water lily flower by cutting the lily pad freehand from green cardstock.   Create the water lily with the Sun Kissed Fleur Stamp and die set.   The flower petals were cut  with the coordinating die and sponged the Guacamole for the green leaves and Squeezed Lemonade for the flower petals. They were shaped with the Deluxe Flower Shaping tool and adhered with Dries Clear adhesive.  The stamen were adhered with glue.   An 8 inch piece of goldenrod quilling strip (or 1/8 inch lightweight cardstock) was coiled tight with a quilling tool.  A 1/4 inch purple strip was clipped along the side with a fine scissor and wrapped around the yellow coil.  It was adhered on top of the stamen for the flower center.
 







Good Luck to you!

    1. Hi Terri! The foldout template makes it easy so I would say about 3 hours coloring the images but cutting the designer paper, die cutting the borders and assembly took about 1 1/2. So - 4 1/2 total. But I am slow at coloring LOL Best of luck to you! I hope Heartfelt Creations selects you too! :D Hugs, Marie.
