Some Lucky Charms

This week's DRS Designs Challenge is to use Lucky Charms on your creation.  That can be your lucky color, theme, image, paper, number or a charm - anything that shows your lucky charm.  I used green which is my favorite color (and lucky) and a four leaf clover (you can see it on the right bottom of the flowers in the hat - it is the bottom right of the popped up clovers).
The bottom base of my card was made by stamping the new Small Shamrock Group on the panel using two different Distress Inks.  Then I took those same colors and sponged then on the bg to color it up. 
Next, I stamped a few of the Hat full of Shamrocks image.  I cut one panel out using a Spellbinders Die and sponged around the edge of the die.  On the other ones, I just sponged the images using the same two colors of TH Distress Ink that I used on my bottom panel.  I then fussy cut them out and glued them over the die cut panel.  This way, I didn't have to really color anything!  I stamped and sponged a few of new Tall Shamrocks and then fussy cut them out. 
It all needed something so I added some glitter to all the panels in some way or another.
I think this may be my first St, Patrick's Day card.  It was so fun, I am going to make some more!
Hope your day is wonderful and full of good luck!  Hugz


  1. You know what is on my kitchen counter, snow shoveling gloves trying to dry off, so your counter looks a lot better than mine. LOL This is a great St Patty's Day card and I love the way you did it. Nice change from regular coloring. Enjoy your day.

  2. This is fabulous Nancy, I love how you have decoupaged the clover and I like the glittered background

  10. Adorable....We are channeling each other! I like this image, and love the glitter of the gold on the little shamrock groups on your background. It's a really cute image, and I like the way you've edged with the more blue shade instead of more green! (must remember it creates a nice 'glow' to the hatfull of shamrocks! TFS & have a wonderful afternoon. Hugs

  11. What a fun card. Background is so nice with the image and the popped up shamrocks.

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This

Milkshake Malt Porter and a Bit of Art

 Hello friends and Happy T-day. It has been hit or miss with me lately on T-day posts. The remodel of our house next door has taken our mental and physical energy.  I think a few more weeks and things will be on the contractor instead of us.  Hopefully I will be back to normal by then. My Oldest Darling Daughter asked if we wanted to come for dinner Saturday.  Translation:  go to the store with me and we will bring part of dinner to your house and you cook the rest.  While at the store, I saw one 6 pack of this fun milkshake porter so, of course, I bought it.  It smells wonderful (a hint of chocolate and a hit of malt) and has a light creamy taste.  I would definitely buy it again if I see it.  My son-in-law did not like it, but he is more a  Miller Lite fan.  Now if this had been a whiskey, he would have been all over it.  LOL.  Linking this to Elizabeth's blog for the T-party gang. Darling Daughter had tried her hand at dried pintos, and she rocked them (I will begging for a rep
