Tiny Shamrocks


Are you a wee bit Irish?

I am, and I like to go green in a big way on St. Patricks Day. The family comes over for dinner and we have all kinds of green things to eat and drink. So fun!!!

I wanted to share a simple little CAS card I made for the sketch challenge over at Case This Sketch.






I pulled out a sweet little stamp I purchased years ago at Michaels and a cute vase die from Paper Smooches.






Authetique came out with a fabulous paper line called Emerald which was just perfect for my card!






Supplies Used: cardstock - white; patterned papers from Emerald by Authentique; Stamp - Michaels; Kuretake brush tip pens; die - Paper Smooches; stitched rectangle die - Simon Says Stamp; twine - my stash.


Thanks for stopping by!

Die Cuttin' Divas Sketch Challenge

We got more snow yesterday :(
I think I am MORE than ready for spring.
Snow, snow go away, come again some other YEAR!

Daylight Savings time is near, must be a sign that spring is on the way, right?!


It is Tuesday again and time for a new challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas.

This week our challenge is a sketch.


.






I just rec'd my Simon Says Stamp card kit in the mail. It had the cutest bunny in the included stamp set, so I opted for an Easter Card so I could ink him up.


The kit also came with a darling egg stencil that I used for his background.

I die cut an oval in some patterned paper by Doodlebug to leave an opening for the egg stencil to peek through.




The sentiment is from the stamp set also!





Supplies used: Card stock - white, black, blue; pattern paper by Doodlebug; twine by Lawn Fawn; Copic markers; stencil - SSS; Versamark; white embossing powder; sequins.



Now pop on over to Die Cuttin' Divas and see all the fabulous inspiration the rest of the design team has come up with.


Hope to see you playing along with us!!!!
