I searched through my stash for all of my frog images! The cute Frog with Heart is from Gerda Steiner Designs and it was a freebie at one point (thank you!). I coloured him with Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut. I added clear Wink of Stella on the heart and Glossy Accents on his eyes and heart. I also added some freckles with a black gel pen.
The Frog Prince is from Tiddly Inks Froggie Thoughts, and this is also a freebie (thank you!), still available! I coloured him with Prismacolor pencils, fussy-cut, and added gold Wink of Stella to his crown and Glossy Accents to his eyes.
The patterned paper is from Forever in Time. I die-cut Impression Obsession Cattails and inked them with Distress Inks. I added a few Jolee's frog stickers, sparkly dragonfly from Forever in Time, and some butterfly and flower gel stickers. The grass die-cuts in the middle of the box were leftovers from another project.
The two photos above show the box when it's open and on display - I love how it turned out! Next I'll share each part individually.
Above I used a fun sentiment from Scribbles Designs called Time's Fun. I stamped a Lawn Fawn Word Bubble and cut with the coordinating die. The frog is a puffy sticker and I added three fly images from Insectox.
The Cute Vintage Frog and Vintage Dragonflies above are freebies from Graphics Fairy (thank you!). I fussy-cut and covered the frog with Glossy Accents. Two strips of green washi tape were added.
The adorable pre-coloured frog is from Cre8ive Hands and was a freebie at one point (thank you!). I fussy-cut and added Glossy Accents to his eyes. The heart and word bubble are from Lawn Fawn.
Above is a gorgeous image from Beccy's Place called Frog and Oleander. I used the pre-coloured image and fussy-cut. The word bubble/sentiment die-cut was a leftover from a previous project (sentiment from Doodle Pantry Bunny Wabbit and word bubble from Lawn Fawn). The grass die-cut is also left-over from a previous project and I inked it with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. The dragonfly is from Impression Obsession Cattails and I inked with Distress Inks.
The above frog was a freebie a few years ago from From the Pond, and I used the pre-coloured version and fussy-cut. The sentiment and word bubble are from Lawn Fawn.
Above is a puffy frog sticker and dragonfly gem. Below shows how the box all folds up and fits inside an A2 envelope. I know the recipient is going to love this!
