Posts Tagged ‘St. Patrick’s Day’


A big congrats to Carol, the newest Featured Stamper (FS577) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout & curvy border but I used different images, different colors & made mine a St. Patrick’s Day card.

For my Shenanigans Wreath, after stamping & coloring the Shamrock Circle, I stamped the Good Luck Circle inside, colored it & die cut it w/ a circle die. I didn’t want all the white space left on the inside of the wreath, so I fussy cut it & added a marigold layer behind it.  

The lower edge was die cut & more of marigold added under it. On the cut off part, I stamped the Silhouette Shamrock Field  w/ the lt green ink & added just bit more darker green inside the petals. I added some wink of Stella on the wreath & it’s nice & sparkly in real life!

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Today’s Color Challenge (CC625) (gold, white, green) & yesterday’s Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS419) (Luck of the Irish),on Splitcoast, seem destined to go together. For my easy card, I used gold & emerald embossing powders to heat emboss the Good Luck circle onto mirror gold card stock.
These were all die cut using 2 sizes of circle dies & a couple of them were layered onto a larger, fancy edge circle die cut. I also gold embossed some of the clover centers of the image onto green c/s & used a small 4 leaf clover punch to punch them out. The punch wasn’t an exact match, but it was close enough. The white frame was die cut, the greeting added & I had a piece of dry embossed green c/s left over from something & since it had clovers & shamrocks on it, I put it behind the opening.

Here’s a look at the inside.

To make my clean & simple St. Patrick’s Day card, I die cut all the pieces and parts out of a water color background I had in my stash. It was a largish leftover from something else, made w/ yellows & greens Brushos crystals. The colors were perfect for a St. Patrick’s Day card & the little bird was die cut out of an area where the greens faded into white. I liked the way it made him look more like a real bird w/ varied coloring. (The shamrock in his hat is part of the Little Critters die set.) The Lucky die was cut once out of the w/c bg & once out of a lime green I used underneath for a bit of a shadow. For the embossed edges, I used a scallop ribbons folder then cut away only one part to use as the edges on either side. The shamrock balloons were added w/ some Baker’s twine strings.

Here’s a look at the inside.
