Happy St. Patricks's Day to you all (the Irish gal in me is smiling)! Do you do anything for the holiday? The kids always get a little gift from a lucky leprechaun but that's about it here at our house:o) Although when they were little, we used to do green eggs & ham and fun stuff like green jello or kool-aid, but now that they're older they don't care anymore, hee hee! Alrighty, I'm keeping my chitter chatter to a minimum today, cuz' this is a LONG post--so make sure you go all the way to the end, 'kay!!
Today is Tuesday, so that means its Try It Out Tuesday over on Susana's Custom Art & Card Design store blog, Follow Your Heart! I challenged the DT to make their cards/projects using only the color green & one neutral to celebrate St. Patty's Day :o) I used Lockhart's beautiful "Tulips" stamp for my card--my favorite flower of all is tulips and I love white & yellow tulips the most so white tulips it is today, hee hee!
I also incorporated the Technique Challenge from SCS yesterday which was to make these beautiful ribbon frames (see here)--I love it & it was so simple to do too--very elegant! The sentiment is from PTI's "Spring Tag Collection" & yes I really love that set, hee hee. (BTW, hubby bought me ALL the new PTI goodies this month again, of course he was half sleeping on the couch when he agreed to it--love that man, lol).
I colored my image with Copics and then layered over the flowers and leaves with the fun, new metallic paints called "Smooch". I used it in "green apple" & "moonlight"--really fun stuff & such cute bottles they come in too! Make sure and stop by the store blog to see the rest of the DT's projects!
Last but certainly not least is this cute Greeting Farm card I made with that cute-a-licious set "Home Sweet Home". Isn't he just the cutest lil' pup with his stuffed bunny--I could just squish him! This set is a MUST-HAVE for doggie lovers like myself!!! The dp is from my stash so I'm not sure who makes it; I distressed it a bit to look more primitive! Today I'm being spotlighted over on The Greeting Farm's blog for being their Guest Designer this month if you'd like to hop over there & take a look :o)
Hope you enjoyed my montage of projects today! I'll have 3 more for you tomorrow too, lol! Busy week here at ScrapBitz for sure!:o)
