Irish Luck

BBTB2 So Lucky Shamrock


Back for another challenge.  Today's card is for the BBTB 2 challenge.  I used Georgia-Pacific white cardstock for the base and the clouds.  The other papers all all Recollections.  The clouds I put on foam tape and  cut at 1.75 and the shamrock leaves I cut at .75 and are from the Designer Calendar cartridge.  The tree was cut from the Christmas Card cartridge at 5.  The shamrock boarder was cut 1.75 and the mustache at 1.25 from the PDDU cartridge at   The leprechaun bear and all layers is from the Teddy Bear Parade cartridge cut at 2.75.  I used a yellow Studio-G stickles on the buckle on the hat and for the gold in the pot. I used the Zig 2 way glue pen to adhere the leaves and the tree and all layers on the bear.  I use my ATG to adhere the blue mat that was cut at 4.25 x 5.5  and the shamrock boarder.  The polka dot green paper under the boarder is 1/2 x 5.5.  The sentiment is from Cardz TV Stamps Happy Days.   Please leave comments.  I love to read all the wonderful and encouraging comments.  Thanks for stopping by, Hugs xxx.

Roaring Birthday

Crafty Cardz Challenge # 126 “Make a Wish”


Back again with another card for Crafty Cardz Challenge.  With this challenge I set another challenge for my self.  That was to use my scrap cardstock and design papers.  The card base is a standard size card out of recollection kraft cardstock.  The design papers are from a pack that I got at Sams Club.  I used the cartridge Plantin School Book to cut the circle and the grass.  I made the window with from one of my cartridge package.  The stamp set is from recollections called jamming animals.  The lion I stamp 4 times and paper pieced him.  I used the hero arts background cloud stamp. I used Tim Holtz  distress ink broken china for the background stamp.  The sentiment stamp is from cardz tv critter captions for this I used archival ink.  The button is from my stash and the thread is from friendship package from Wal-Mart.  I cut fun foam to make the dimension for the shaker and used sequin mix from Wal-Mart.  Hope you enjoy.  Hugs xxx.
