Create a simple frog card using Stampin Up Toil & Trouble & Animal Outing - Mary Fish StampinUp Envelope

Today’s card proves that Stampin’ Up! Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper goes beyond Halloween.  I adore this “wild” frog pattern and sentiment.  It will be perfect to brighten a friend’s day!

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base using Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake card stock and the Stampin’ Trimmer.  Adhere a 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 piece of Mossy Meadow card stock to card base as shown using Snail Adhesive.

Cut the frog pattern from Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper to 3 x 4 1/2 and adhere to a 3 1/4 x 4 3/4 piece of Granny Apple Green card stock.

Wrap frog layer four times with Linen Thread and adhere with Glue Dots where it will be buried below the tag.  Adhere frog layer to card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the Stamparatus, stamp the “Wild about You” sentiment (Animal Outing Stamp Set) in Mossy Meadow ink on Whisper White card stock.  Crop with the third smallest oval of Layering Ovals Framelits Dies, the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and the Magnetic Platform (to keep the image centered).

Toil & Trouble Boo-tiful Card Idea

Simple Halloween card idea using Stampin Up Warm Hearted and Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper - Mary Fish StampinUp envelope

I created a wee bit of “toil” with very little “trouble” for today’s Halloween card idea.  Key to the design was this delightful ghost pattern from Stampin’ Up! Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper.

Check out the bewitching patterns of the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper above.  TIP:  The Cauldron Framelits Dies (#147914, $28) coordinate and crop (with the Big Shot) many of the Toil & Trouble patterned images!

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base with Basic Black card stock and the Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Trimmer.  Layer and adhere with Snail Adhesive a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Whisper White card stock.

Layer and adhere with Snail Adhesive a 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 piece of Gorgeous Grape card stock on the right side as shown.

Crop a 2 7/8 x 3 1/4 ghost pattern from Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper.  Adhere with Snail Adhesive on the right side of a 3 x 3 1/2 piece of Highland Heather card stock.  Adhere both with Snail Adhesive on the right side of the card base as shown.

2-Step Stamping!  Using the Stamparatus stamp positioning tool, stamp the first “BOO” image (Warm Hearted Photopolymer Stamp Set) in Smoky Slate on Whisper White card stock.  Stamp the second “BOO” image slightly left (a 2-step stamping overlay) using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

Crop the “BOO” sentiment using the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform (to keep the image in place) and the second smallest oval from Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  Adhere to a Basic Black scallop oval (approx. 2 3/8 wide) adhered to a Highland Heather oval (approx. 2 1/2 wide), both created with the Big Shot and the Stampin’ Up! Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. 

TIP:   Crop the Whisper White and Highland Heather ovals from the Whisper White and Highland Heather layers where it will be covered by layers.  Saves on card stock!

Bring on the bling!  I adhered a couple pieces of the yummy Black 5/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon below the sentiment and adhered the entire sentiment to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The “eyes” have it!  For added spooky fun, I adhered two Basic Black Faceted Dots (self-adhesive) as eyes to the inside of the “O’s” in BOO!

Crop the coordinating Gorgeous Grape stripe pattern from Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper with the Big Shot and the envelope liner die in Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies.  Adhere to the inside of a Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Medium Envelope.
