Dirty Dare - Froggy Tag Card

For a while I didn't think I would actually stamp today, but the lure of having to create a tag card for the DD challenges got the better of me. This challenge was hosted by Yvette and while creating a tag card may sound easy there was a twist to this challenge ......... which was that we were only allowed to use one stamp set! After a little thought I decided to use my unfrogettable set as it has all you need to create a card ...... images, sentiments ...... it is all there.

It has been a while since I have done a proper scenic type card so I also decide to go that way with this card.
To create my tag card I cut my card 9 inches c 5 1/2 inches and scored at every 3 inch interval. The white panels I just card a 1/4 inch smaller than the green piece so they are all 2 3/4inches x 5 1/4 inches.

One of the things I like about using SU sets is that when I create a mask for an image in that set, I just pop that mask into that set with the stamp so that next time I want to mask something using that stamp I don't have to create a new one or search my book I have that holds many of my other masks ........ so easy!

Stamps: Unfrogettable - Stampin' Up
Paper: White; Dark Green
Other: Black Ink; Celeste Blue Impress Ink; Cloud Stencil; Tria Markers

Love the froggie scene! Do you use sticky notes to make masks? You had mentioned that you keep your masks for the next time, but I find when using sticky notes, that they lose their stick with mulitiple uses.

:) This was the first stamp set I thought of using for this tag card, but my thoughts on how to stamp it weren't coming together. YOU NAILED IT!! :) This is soo cute. You are such a little stamping idol (IMO)--thanks so much for all the wondering inspiration here on your blog.
