Charlene's great challenge to the CCEE Stampers this week was to pull out our "oldie but goodie" stamps, "stamps that you just HAD to have but you haven't used in your creations in a long time" and use them.
It's been quite a while since I used Unfrogettable, on e of my earliest SU buys.
I used it to make a little easel card, with the largest Spellbinders circle dies, and Lacy Circles.
Green Bazzill for the base. Blue water paper is Sizzix Little Sizzles, green paper is some old MME Bloom and Grow stamped with IO Greenery in Meadow Green, finished off with some Liquid Pearls.
All images stamped on watercolour paper, coloured with distress inks and popped up. The snail has glossy accents on his shell, the dragonfly has Stickle wings. I added a couple of strips of MFT grass.
The stopper is a sort of waterlily made with a green circle for the leaf, a white Blossoms 1 shaped with a stylus, and a quilled yellow mulberry tissue centre.
I had fun with this - I love this set, and it was my first circle easel.
Be sure to leave a link on the blog if you pull out an "oldie but goodie" to have fun with .

Sabrina, this is a wonderful pond scene! I love the easel feature here to make the pool more realistic. I love all the pond growth and creatures....the water lily, the snail, dragonfly, mushroom and frog. What a great way to use this old stamp! I haven't yet tried a circle easel, and I congratulate you for your successful result!

Oh my gosh, Sabrina, I almost pulled this out as I hadn't used it in forever and a day! Your shaped card is exceptionally adorable - I love the frog, snail, dragonfly and the cute lilypad - wonderful scene!

Sabrina, your mind creates such wonderful ideas week after week, and this awesome pondside scene is nothing less than fabulous! Always a cute card from this set, but you have made it extra special with the easel and the water lily floating across as the 'stopper' Fantastic card!!
Easter blessings and Big Hugs to my Sister in Dublin!!
