Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I have green inky fingers after painting this Silver Glimmer Paper to create this leprechaun hat. With all the glittery shimmer of this hat, I kept the rest of the card very clean and simple.
I made this hat with the large circle and oval punches. The hat ban is a sliver of Basic Gray covered with dazzling diamonds glitter.
Here’s a St. Patrick’s Day treat bag made with an envelope, the large heart punch and a Top Note trimmed piece of Gumball Green Poetry Prints designer series paper.
I love to use the colors in a pack of designer series paper to inspire my creating, but you can also experiment with colors outside the paper pack’s color palette. Here I combined the striped Tangerine Tango paper with Melon Mambo cardstock for a fresh new color combo.
The scallop circle here is the mid-size doily from the Delicate Doilies Sizzlets Diefrom page 191 in the catalog. When the catalog was printed the numbers got reversed and the largest die was listed as 1-3/8″ in diameter which is much smaller than what I wanted. When I found out the correct dimensions were 3-1/8″ for the largest doily I ordered the die immediately! As you can see here the mid-size doily layers perfectly with the 1-3/4″ circle punch.
Remember the flower garden party card I showed you yesterday? Today I have the video how-to stamp and emboss on black card stock to create this neon grouping. I’m excited to show you how easy it is in this 3 minute video.
This card is just plain fun! These sophisticated flowers from the Secret Garden Stamp and Framelit Die bundle are ready to party in these vibrant colors on black cardstock. Bloomin’ Marvelous is from the Sale-a-bration set by the same name. Doesn’t this card look super involved and time consuming to make? It’s not! With the Versamark ink, color embossing powder and the coordinating stamp set and framelit dies, it’s a snap to make! (Come back tomorrow for the video tutorial or subscribe to the blog updates in RSS/email in the right sidebar under the facebook & youtube buttons.)
The base of the card is Whisper White cardstock with strips of Summer Smooches designer series paper adhered to the front.
Here’s the card recipe:

This birthday card just makes me want to sing “I Love Paris in the Springtime.” The eiffel tower from the Stampin’ Up! Collage Curios stamp set takes center stage but the swirly background from the Hearts a Flutter tag helps it along the way.
Each tag was stamped and then punched out with the Postage Stamp punch and popped up with a Stampin’ Dimensional. I loved using the 2011-13 In Colors for a perfect spring color palette: Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party and Whisteria Wonder with a little Pink Pirouette added in.
