TSOT311 and SUO169 A Lot of Green


Happy Friday, peeps!  I rarely make St Patrick's Day cards, but when I saw the SU Only Challenge this week, which is "Celebrating Green", as well as the Try Stampin' On Tuesday sketch with the option of plaid, I just had to pull out this golden oldie stamp set, Gift Givers!  So here's the sketch:

And here's my card!  

I had already chosen the green plaid paper from the Warmth & Cheer pad before I even saw the plaid challenge!  I stamped my little leprechaun on some watercolor paper and colored him in with an aquapainter and inks:



And how cool is it that our stitched ovals fit the sentiments from Teeny Tiny Wishes?!  I stamped, punched and diecut this sentiment for the inside:


I also added some embossing with the Cable Knit EF, some Gumball Green stitched ribbon, and a couple of mats in Garden Green and Basic Black!  I had fun making this one!  Thanks for stopping by!

My nephew Tim stopped by earlier in the week to give us an estimate on some work he may be doing for us; while he was taking measurements, Cassidy decided to draw his picture on the driveway:


'


We liked how his hair and his beard sort of encircled his head!  But the funniest part was when Uncle Timmy actually got down on the ground to compare his likeness!  Not bad! I think his legs might be a little too scrawny, though!


Enjoy the blessings of the day!

  2. That paper looks very familiar ;-) Don't you just love the plaids in that DSP pack? I didn't realize Teeny Tiny Wishes had that stamp. I need to go check that out. Your family is so much fun! Have a great weekend. Blessings your way!

  10. Ok so the card is cute - but the chalk drawing and your nephew lying next to it had me in stitches, so great that he joined in with Cassidy's driveway art!

  13. SO fun! I don't remember that stamp set, but I did notice a big absence of anything for St. Patrick's Day in my stamps! Love how it fits the Stitched Shape Circle...and that coordinating DSP! Thanks for playing along with the "green" challenge on SUO Challenges this time!
