So Hoppy Together for Coffee and Cards!

Hi Everyone!

I've got a bit of a confession to make this week (and it's not that I'm addicted to stamps, I already own up to that!) - the stamp set I decided to use for this week's Coffee and Card, I didn't really like it!

As it was half term here in the UK, I decided to use one of the Sale-A-Bration sets (one that you can get absolutely FREE with a spend of £45) Hoppy For You. This is really cute Frog stamp set which has a bit of a 'cartooney' vibe. Now this is a lovely stamp set, it's just not my cup of tea - I will admit that I ordered it as I'd run out of other Sale-A-Bration items to get.

But now for an even bigger confession - once I'd actually designed my cards for Coffee and Card, I actually really like these little frogs now! I decided to go with the cartoon feel of these little guys and hopefully you can see that in my designs.

I used the Stampin' Up! Blend Pens to colour the little frogs in (tip: stamp the outline with Memento Black Ink so that it doesn't run when colouring with the alcohol markers.) On two of the cards I added a 'squiggly' border with the Stampin' Up! black marker pen which I think added to the cartoon of the frogs. 

I now very much like these little guys and will definitely be using this stamp set again. 

Don't forget, this is a FREE stamp set during Sale-A-Bration so head to my online shop now and place your order. I am also offering FREE P&P until the end of March which will be refunded to you via PayPal once you have placed your order (UK/France/Germany/Netherlands only I'm afraid!)
