St. Patrick's Day

I normally don’t make St. Patrick’s Day cards, but when I do…I make sure there’s some pink on them (LOL). Thank goodness I have Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set because it comes with the perfect St. Patty’s day sentiment!

St. Patrick's Day

MAGGIE MADE TIPS: Not in cash, but great crafting recommendations.

  • Add Color: Did you noticed the splash of extra color?  Go on and spice up a card with a vibrant color to give it an interesting pop. There’s already a variety of green shades to convey the sentiment, but adding one contrasting color will make the focal point stand out even more.
  • Subtle Balance: I added three sequen on the upper right side of the card to give the card a good eye-pleasing balance.

Friend to Friend with Stampin’ Up! Flowers

Lately, it seems that some of our friends need a friend just to be there and not have to say a word.  All the World Treasures are within ourselves to share with those we love and care for.  That is why I need to let you know that if you are on a budget and feel you can’t afford all the stamp sets Stampin’ Up! has to offer then Teeny Tiny Wishes is one of the sets you have got to have.  It has a stamp for every occasion.

When you are making your wish list from the Stampin’ Up! catalog, make sure that stamp set is number one!  It’s the set I have used the most and it was the first one I ever ordered and I DO NOT regret it one bit.

I placed basic rhinestones on the flowers and colored them with Sharpies (before placing them in the middle of the flower).  I bought myself the grand daddy of Sharpies that contains every color that matches our Stampin’ write markers.  To add color to the rhinestones, I used Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, and Wild Wasabie from the Subtles Marker Collection.  They were a perfect match to the Sharpies don’t you think?

To make the vase, I punched out wispher white card stock with the the Large Oval and cut one side straight across and used the same punch to make the well in the middle of the cut out.  I then sponged it with Tempting Turquoise ink.  The brad is from the retired Everyday Enchantment collection.


Stampin’ Up! is trying out something new!  They are excited to offer you the chance to buy single pieces from these select stamp sets:  Word Play, Perfectly Penned, and Seasonal Sayings.  Click on each image below to view stamps or read prior post here.
