BSS Monday Idea - Dazzling Die Cuts

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.
Today I'm showcasing some new dies in the store.
I just love this cattails die by Spellbinders (SB-S2-002)
I ran it through twice, once in dark green for the leaves and once in brown
for the cattails. Then just snipped the cattail tops off of the brown and glued
over the green cutout.

This is the finished card.
Stamps - Penny Black Clear set Toadily (30-022)
Colored with Copic Markers. Water and sky are sponged on.
Water Stamp - Stampscapes
Covered frogs with Glossy Accents.
Brushed on Glamour Dust Ultra Fine Glitter Paint by
Background die - Iron Gate by Sizzix (659005)
mounted on a piece of green card stock, matted with brown card stock
adhered to a white card stock 5x7 card.
Ribbon holder die is Spellbinders S5-161 Majestic Elements
Ribbon from my stash

For the inside of the card, Iron Gate die in green adhered to
inside of card. Sentiment is from the same Penny Black set.

Here is a close up of the sparkly water and
slippery frogs!

Lots of great new dies from a lot of different companies.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great Monday.  Until later...........

Those froggies can't be any cuter! They look like they would slip right out of your hands. As for that cattail die.... I have had my eye on it. You may have pushed me over the edge.

I LOVE this card, Sue! The cat tails look amazing, as do the other die cuts - but your froggies are adorable. Beautifully shaded, and impishly happy expressions. AFter seeing the card's interior I realized that the card looks like my husband and me LOL Darling card.
