Happy St. Patty’s Day


Hi Everyone,

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up soon and so I thought I’d share this adorable little frog and an old Irish saying featuring High Hopes Rubber Stamps – Frog In Boxers Q018 and High Hopes Rubber Stamps – Irish Blessing2 P132 for the sentiment. My grandmother and her family came over from Ireland when they were very young so I am also part Irish.  When I saw these two stamps from High Hopes, I just knew that I had to put them together to make this card.

On the inside is the Irish saying:

 

 

Happy St. Paddy’s Day Everyone!

Clover – Lucky Lady


Hi There,

Sassy Studio Designs had a challenge this month to come up with an idea using “Clover”.

Unfortunately, I was so busy that I missed giving the card to my hubby for St. Patrick’s Day. So I came up with “Plan B”. LOL! He’s so good to me that when I saw the sentiment and the clover stamp that I had, it all clicked.

Here is my card…..

St. Patrick’s Day


Hi There,

Like to share a card that I made for St. Patrick’s Day.

The file is from Too Cute By Jessica – Lucky Leprechauns

Lucky Leprachauns

Outlined hair – Classic Stampin Pot – Stampin’ Up – Tangerine Tango

Sky – Classic Stampin Pot – Stampin’ Up – Tempting Turquoise

Clouds – Used as a template – Craftin Desert Diva’s – Outdoor Landscape Dies

Pot of Gold Coins – Recollections – Gold Glitter Paper Roll

To outline various parts on the characters, I used various colours of chalk. Eyelashes were done with Pigma Micron 03 Archival Ink Pen. Eye highlights with Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen.

Buttons – Sakura Glaze – Black

Grass – Shamrocks from – Cricut Cartridge – A Child’s Year. “St. Patrick’s #M2F10F”. I inserted the image into Cricut Design Space and then ungrouped the image and deleted all parts except for the Shamrock. I then did a copy and paste twice. Making the shamrock into various sizes. Next, I copied and pasted all 3 images twice more. Then printed out to the Cricut Explore telling it to print the image 8 times.

Used my Xyron Creative Station  and Xyron Create a Sticker to for all of the pieces to make it easier to put everything together.

Paper – Watercolour paper.
