Hello friends! I have a couple of projects to share today. The month of March is literally flying by and I can’t believe we will be celebrating St. Patricks Day this weekend! Do you celebrate it? Well, we are not Irish, but I think it is fun to pretend we are and wear something green that day, or have the excuse to make a card to give it to a friend or family member, don’t you think?
Anyhow, as I said in the beginning, I created two cards for this Irish day featuring an ATS stamp set called ExtraLucky and the Lucky Clovers Die Set.
If you have seen some of my projecst before, you should know that I love creating backgrounds with Liquid Colors, so I created one using my JourneyGel Press, Limeade Splash and Sweet Pear Liquid Colors, a brayer along with a Whip Cream cardstock panel. The steps are simple: 1) Apply liquid colors over the gel press, 2) Spray a bit of water, 3) Spread the colors with the brayer, 4) Pick up the color with the cardstock panel, and 5) Let it dry.
Once the panel was dried, I adhered it over a Limeade Splash folded card. Next, I stamped the sentiment over it with Black Licorice Ink and I added Journey Glaze over the words (I always love using it to make the sentiments stand out). I have to say that this product doesn’t take too long to dry, so that is why I like it a lot!
Next, I die cut a clover from Kiwi Slice cardstock. I continued my project by adhering the clover over the card front with foam squares. To finish up this card I used Black Licorice Silk, some green sequins and Lemon Grass thread.
For my second project, I used the Note Pocket Die to create a Sweet Pear cardstock pocket for a small card. After I assembled the pocket, I adorned it with a couple strips of Journey tape and a clover that I die cut from Limeade Splash cardstock. Quick and easy!
Then, I created a folded card from Whip Cream cardstock, and I stamped some Sweet Pear clovers over the card front and a sentiment with Black Licorice ink. As always, I also added Journey Glaze over the words to make the sentiment shine! I flicked some Gold Silk onto the card and I embellished it with some gold sequins. Finally, I tucked the card into the pocket and I added a clip and Lemon Grass thread bow to finish up this card.
This sale includes lots and lots of products that you can get for $1, $2, $3, $5 or $10 …. Papers, inks, dies, embellishments…. and much more! Believe me, these are HUGE savings so please jump over to the shop and start filling up your cart!
