Sew Super Cute Challenge

About a week ago I made a baby girl card with matching gift bag (I didn't have the bag in the pic, I made it the next day...) with a little lamb on it. I loved it so much I decided to make a boy version for the Peachy Keen Let's Face it Friday Challenge (HERE). You had to use stitching - real or faux - and of course a little PK face stamp. Check out my project....

Of all the new carts I just got, I resort to good 'ole Create A Critter! What can I say, I just love this cart... I would be soooo happy if Provo Craft came out with another similar cart. I have been wanting to cut this little frog for a while but just haven't had the opportunity yet. I used my PK Everyday Character Face Parts stamps and I cut (yes cut... trust me, I took one big deep breathe and snipped. It was scary, I hold my PK stamps near and dear to my heart but I had to do it for the sake of the froggie! :)) a set of eyes in half. After I cut them I set them (and the mouth) onto the froggie and lined them up exactly where I wanted them. Then I set my acrylic block on top and pushed down so the stamps would stick to the block in the position I had placed them. Then I inked and stamped! It worked awesome! I stamped his little face, a little stitching, embossing and chalk to make his cheeks rosy and viola! So cute! 

Here are some details of my card/bag set...
- froggie from Create A Critter
- Peachy Keen Everyday Character Face Parts stamps for froggie
- sentiment from My Pink Stamper
- twine from The Twinery
- Martha Stewart border punch
- Cuttlebug embossing folder
- 3D foam stickers, gift bag and tissue from dollar store (tissue photographed a weird color, it actually matches better in person...)

So long for now!!
