Paper Smooches GDT Week 2

It's my second week as the Guest DT spot for Paper Smooches. I have to say that I am having so much fun creating using Kim's stamps. I think these stamps are so versatile and really there are endless possibilities.. only your creativity!
So for this card I used 2 different sets, A little lovin (frogs) and Alphadots (dots for the clouds, and the grass, the words be unique.. I thought it would be fun to make a little "leap frog" card! Do you remember playing that game when you were little??
I used Martha Stewart's shredding scissors to create the grass. I stamped circles using the 3x method.. so you stamp once then move it over (don't re-ink yet) stamp again, and then again.. it gives it a really fun multi stamp effect.. I also used the cute little long strip of circles to create the "jumping mark for the frog"
Copic markers were used to color all my froggies, and to give the pink one her spots. :) I also used puffy paint to go around the clouds to make them "pop".. Ohh.. I used the cloud from Spiffy Scooters stamp set. I cut it out and used the negative as a template to stamp the dots in the cloud. I hope that makes sense.

Challenges-
We Memories-4+colors white, black, light pink, dark pink, green, blue, light green
Stampalot Challenge-Whatever you fancy
Ladybug crafts ink-favorite stamps (paper smooches)
For my second card, I wanted to create a big flower.. So when I saw the lemon I thought "flower leaves" then the banana looked like a scallop to me. I also used the blueberry stamp for the center. This is what I came up with. I used 3 different stamps sets for this card, Fruitastic, Boob tubes, & FOLKal Point. The design on the leaves, do you recognize it ? YEP it's that cute shape from Boob Tubes. The sentiment Thank You is from the FOLKal Point set.
I placed a little dab of puffy paint to bring the scallops together.. :) I hope you are having a wonderful day!! Thanks so much for stopping by! HUGS

These are the cutest, Alison! The leap frog card is so much fun and I love the 'be unique' sentiment. I keep thinking I need one of those but soon I'll be able to make my own! ;) I love making flowers out of other stamps and yours is beautiful.
