The Technique Challenge (TLC572) on Splitcoast today involves a pleated skirt made of paper. The instructions were not hard, I just made it harder on myself because of orientation of my image..so I had to reverse the side of the pleat & make is shorter to fit.
After I stamped, colored & die cut Paddy Bear, I colored a narrow cut off piece w/ the same green Copics & added it to the upper right. I used a piece of the marigold c/s to make my pleated skirt. It’s attached to a piece of white on the reverse side & I stamped it w/ little shamrocks using the marigold ink. I also used a dot embossing folder & curved border die to cut most of the lower edge. The two ribbons were also colored to match & attached on top of the pleated skirt. A little Wink of Stella was added to all the shamrocks.
These are the Copics I used to color everything.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT520), is all about the color green (but you can also add earth tones). So my mostly green card w/ earth tone yellow/gold I think will fit the bill.
I started by stamping the Infinity Shamrock, masking it, then stamping the shamrock top from the Hatfull of Shamrocks then coloring them in. I die cut white & a gold panels w/ circles cut out toward the top to frame my bouquet. the greeting was stamped underneath. I stamped, colored and fussy cut a few shamrocks to add on either side of the greeting. These weren’t originally in the plan, but became necessary when a couple of mysterious spots appeared. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.

Today’s Free for All Challenge (F4A261)on Splitcoast has 2 requirements..St. Patrick’s Day theme & use one of the tutorials in the SCS Resources section. I went with THIS tutorial on creating a frame using Spellbinders nestabilities.
After using two sizes of Labels 22 to make my frame, I also die cut a fancy lattice, used part of it behind the frame and the rest for the lower part of my card front. The Infinity Shamrock was stamped w/ green ink, then I added a light green shading to it before stamping the greeting on top with black. I attached it on top of the lattice and a green panel behind the lattice before attaching to my card. The shamrock swag was colored & fussy cut.
