A Boy's World

So, I've got another masculine/boys card for The Paper Players current challenge.  This would be perfect for a boy whose world is filled with frogs and bugs.  I can see my son wanting a pet frog in a few years.  :-).  I'm also linking this up to Addicted to CAS again as well.  Their code word is birthday.  I'm also going to link it up to CAS-usal Fridays challenge.  You're supposed to stamp on designer paper which I did with the frog and I guess the jar too.  :-)


Anyway, I did a little paper piecing with the frog (Inkadinkado).  I stamped on some patterned paper (K&Company-Roam collection). Then did it again on yellow/green card stock and cut out only the eyes.  The jar is cut from some Dear Lizzy Neopolitan collection paper (American Crafts) and I stamped some grass using Mellow Moss ink (both stamp and ink by SU!).  Then I stamped the web (Inkadinkado) in grey StazOn, then the spider (unknown) in black StazOn.  I cut the wood grain strip (DCWV) to try and mimic a shelf.  Then I stamped the sentiment (Fiskars) in black StazOn.

I'm really rather pleased with it.  I really like how the jar turned out.

That's all for now.  Have a fabulous day!

  2. Okay, Kim, no one asked me, but if I were you I would enter this card in as many card magazines (online and IRL) as you can find! This is a stellar example of paper piecing!! SO much work went into making this card but your result looks like it was easy and you've kept it neat and clean and (dare I say it in front of the froggie?) delicious!!
