I’m so excited that Kristina Werner’s color challenge this week works perfectly for a Passover card! I’ve been feeling the need to make more, especially with these adorable froggies! Here are this week’s colors:


I decided to do another scalloped circle card. The circle reminds me of a seder plate. And the frogs, the second plague, are one of my family’s traditional Passover symbols. I used textured cardstock for the Kiwi Kiss and the Baja Breeze. I liked how it adds just a little more dimension.

Here’s another Passover related card. Well, for me it is Passover related because of all of the frogs, and frogs always make me think of Passover. For you, a frog may just be a frog. 🙂 This is from a sketch challenge on a new website I have been visiting called Stampin’ Addicts. It’s a happy, upbeat group of crazy stampers like myself.  The forums are a great place to chat and the gallery is growing. Today’s card:


Stamps: Hoppy for You
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Accessories: Kiwi Kiss Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Large Oval Punch, Scalloped Oval Punch

Passover is coming up next week, and one of the things my family really likes to focus on are the ten plagues. Particularly the decorations — frogs and bugs more so than blood and boils. So I got it in my head to make a Ten Plagues Passover card. It took quite a few stamp sets, and a fairly loose interpretation of the plagues, but here is what I came up with:

cimg7667The plagues (and the stamp sets I used)
1) Blood (Pick a Petal)
2) Frogs (Hoppy for You)
3) Lice (Hoppy for You)
4) Wild Beasts (Wild About You)
5) Cattle Disease (Pun Fun)
6) Boils (All in the Family)
7) Hail (Pick a Petal)
8 ) Locust (Bugs & Kisses)
9) Darkness (Chocolate Chip Cardstock)
10) Slaying of the First Born (All in the Family, Family Accessories Too)
