Frog on a Lily Pad punch art card

One of the things that I LOVE about Stampin' Up! punches is the many different way you can use them.  Just like this Frog on a Lily Pad card.  It was created using with a variety of Stampin' Up! punches.  See below for step by step instructions on how to create this too cute Frog on a Lily Pad card.

Step 1 - Cut a piece of Pool Party card stock in half length wise and fold in half.  This is your card base.

Step 2 - Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 5" x 3-3/4"

Step 3 - Ink the Grass image from the Inspired By Nature stamp set (retiring at the end of May) with Pear
Pizzazz Classic Stampin' Pad (retiring at the end of May) and the stamped it on Whisper White card stock. You can repeat this step a couple of times until you have the amount of grass you want.

Step 4 - I used the following punches to create the Frog and Lily Pad:
Extra-Large Oval Punch for Frog's head (Pear Pizzazz card stock) and Lily Pad (Garden Green    c
card stock)
Large Oval Punch for Frog's legs (Pear Pizzazz card stock)
Owl Punch:  Bib for Frog's Arms (Pear Pizzazz card stock), Large Circles for Frog's Eyes (Whisper White card stock), Medium Circles for Black Pupils (Basic Black card stock)
3/4" Cicle Punch for Frog's Outer Part of Eyes (Pear Pizzazz card stock)
1 3/4" Circle Punch for Frog's body (Pear Pizzazz card stock)
1 3/8" Circle Punch for Frog's belly (Certainly Celery card stock)
Itty Bitty Punch 4 petal for Frog's hands and feet (Pear Pizzazz)

Step 5 - Cut a little triangle out of the Garden Green Lily Pad in the bottom right edge

Step 6 - Assemble Frog:
Adhere Frog's belly (Certainly Celery card stock) to Frog's body (Pear Pizzazz card stock) and flip over.
To adhere Frogs Legs place adhesive on either side of the back side of the Frog's body and position legs where you want them.  Place adhesive on the bottom part of the Frog's legs and adhere feet.  Next adhere Frog's Outer Part of Eyes to the back of the Frog's head.  Flip Frog's Head right side up and adhere to Frog's body.  Adhere White part of Eyes to each of the Center of the Frog's Outer Part of Eyes (it is okay if the White part goes over the Frog's Head a little bit), then adhere the Black Pupils in the center of the White part of the eye.  Lastly cut the Bib from the Owl Punch in half with scissors.  You can round one of the sides a bit so that they are flush with the small ends.  Adhere Frog's hands to each of the smaller ends.  Adhere Frog's Arms to the Frog's body.

Step 7 - Take a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker and draw a smile on the Frog's Head and some lines on the Frog's legs.

Step 8 - Add embellishments and or a sentiment if you wish.

I hope you enjoyed this Frog Punch Art card as much as I did and take the time to make one yourself.  Have fun.

Happy Stamping!
