So You Like St. Patrick’s Day!

First things, first.  Happy National Tortilla Chip Day!  Just thinking about them makes me want to send out for some avocados to make us some guacamole!  A nice little salsa wouldn't be too bad either!  I'll start the music….

Thanks for all the nice shout outs that you gave me for the last two videos that I posted here for St. Paddy's Day projects.  We're already shopping for my green outfit so that I don't get pinched any more often than usual.

A few of you wanted to know how we got the glitzy Shamrock (shown below) on one of the versions of the Shamrock card in yesterday's video.  It's easy!

  1. Stamp your shamrock image (this one's the Lucky Shamrock #121939 in Garden Green).
  2. Let dry (doesn't take long).
  3. Take a VersaMark pad & press it onto the stamped image.  This is sometimes called "Direct to Paper" because you're using the ink pad like a stamp.
  4. Dump Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder #101930 onto your paper.
  5. Heat with Heat Tool.
  6. Punch out with 1" Circle Punch #119868 & mount with a dimensional.

Click 4 Close Up Guy dogs don't do a lot of glitter, but I like this way because it doesn't shed like a dog.   You can rub it with your finger & it stays put. 

Here's the finished card.  This is the one with the smaller borders.  I like the other card made in the video with the normal size borders.

Just click for a close up.

It's a great time to be the blog dog of a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.
