I think everyone knows how much I love my punches, and this little frog is sort of a re-design for me. A couple years ago I made some swaps with this little punch frog and he held a little candy in his belly. Well, recently Jackie Topa shared an idea to make this frog with a Heart Treat Cup, and I loved it! She made a "Let's Celebrate" card with some little butterflies from the Wonderful Wings Embosslit and then made a great tree stump for her frog, but I decided to make a St. Patty's Day frog so that I could share it with some of my clubs this month. This is what I came up with, and I think he's adorable!

I used the Go Green stamp from the Occasions Mini Catalog, and the Heart Treat Cups, which are currently a Stampin' Up! special. I also used the Inspired By Nature stamp set for the grass. I added some little shamrocks from the Stampin' Up! incentive stamps that Stampin' Up! demonstrators can order. The heart shape was cut with my Movers and Shapers Big Shot Die. For the colors I used Whisper White, Green Galore and Glorious Green. I filled my little heart up with green jelly beans; but for clubs I think I'm going to use M&Ms maybe??

Here are the punches I used: Face, Large Oval Punch; body, Wide Oval Punch; Legs and Belly, Small Oval Punch; Eyes, 1/2" Circle Punch and for the Feet I used one of the flowers on the Boho Blossoms Punch and cut it in half. I did sponge all the edges of these pieces with Glorious Green.

I shared this card with my Demo. group last night, and I think everyone had fun making it~~well, atleast they had some chocolate in case they didn't enjoy it!
