Hello and Happy St. Patrick's Day!
I'm so excited to be participating in the PSA Essentials Luck of the Irish Blog Hop!!!
Do you have big plans for today? Nothing big on my agenda... except for this amazing blog hop! I'm only Irish on St. Patty's Day! ;-)
You should be coming here from Linda's blog. The entire list of designers in the hop are listed below if you hopped off-course!
All you have to do is hop to each of the blogs participating, comment at each, and are (or become) a follower of PSA Stamp Camp... and you will be entered to win the “Luck of the Irish” prize. This prize contains: 1 custom stamp, 2 ink colors, 1 alignment tool and these Peel & Stick packs (just in time for Spring!). Seriously... I'd LOVE this prize!
So, with those details out of the way, are you ready for my project?
I had a little fun with two of Paper Smooches latest free digi-stamps. I printed Kim's darling clover several times and colored in a spectrum of Copic marker colors. When I had all the clovers colored, I covered with glue and liberally sprinkled with fine glitter. I allowed to dry before I carefully trimmed each with precision scissors. These clovers positively SHINE!
To get the cloud shape, I traced the cloud die about a 0.5" larger than the die onto the back of the printed sentiment. Once I had the sentiment cut out, I erased the pencil lines on the back, covered with glue and sprinkled with more glitter.
To add a bit more to the "sky" background, I put the cloud dies on my work table, layered the Core'dinations cardstock on top and gently sanded to get the white core cloud to come through on the cardstock. It's subtle, but a really fun detail!
As an added bonus, I created a little treat holder too. I die cut a Labels 8 Nestability die and scored to hold a couple candies. I added a banner of gold (painted because I didn't have gold paper) and another glittered shamrock to embellish. Simple and cute! And a perfect vehicle to hold my rainbow of fruit flavors (mini Skittles).
Be sure to visit and comment along the way to have a chance to win that awesome PSA Essentials prize pack! I know I'd love to win it! I said that already, haven't I? Shhh... we won't tell...
The next stop on the hop is Mara Campbell.
In case you landed here out of order and would like to participate, here's the list of all the designers:
