Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

I'm not Irish, but it's fun to make seasonal projects. Since I am laying in bed sick, I'll share with you a couple projects from last year.

Here is a card using "inches".

Stamps: Holiday Blitz, Occasions Collection; Paper: Certainly Celery, Garden Green, Spring Fling DSP, Whisper White; Ink: Garden Green; Accessories: ribbon, square punches, Stamp-a-ma-jig.

This is a trifold card. I used Heat 'n Stick powder and Cosmo glitter for the clovers and puffy paint for the foam on the green beer.

Stamps: Cheers to You, Holiday Blitz; Paper: Garden Green, Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa, Spring Fling DSP; Ink: Close to Coca, Garden Green; Accessories: Circle punch, Puffy paint, watercolor crayons, aquapainter, Heat 'n Stick powder, Cosmo glitter.

ETA: I wrote the above post yesterday, and I made it out of bed today (yeah!). I whipped this card together this morning for my father-in-law's 65th birthday. This is a CASE of 'sleepyinseattle' on SCS - love her work!

Since I didn't have all the colors I needed in markers, it was easier to unmount my Occasions stamp from the wood block, trim the little shamrock, and stamp it individually. I did this by adhering the stamp to my acrylic block with double-stick tape and then stamping with my cardstock on top of a mouse pad. Fun!

Stamps: Branch Out, Occasions Collection; Paper: Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip; Ink: Garden Green, Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip; Accessories: Sponge, Old Olive taffeta ribbon, Glue dot, Finial Press embossing folder, Big Shot, Stamp-a-ma-jig.

I've got St. Patrick's fever now... here's one more.

Stamps: Sweetheart, Holiday Blitz, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Occasions Collection; Paper: Green Galore, Whisper White, Patterns Pack II DSP; Ink: Green Garden; Accessories: Full Heart punch, Heart treat cups, Whisper White taffeta ribbon, Lollipop stick.

Thanks for stopping by!
