Since today is the day in which I will reveal the "lucky" winner of the Stampin' Schach blog candy, it is only fitting that I share with you this card, which features my favorite Textured Impressions Folder, "Perfect Polka Dots", a Stampin' Up! exclusive available from the Occasions Mini. The Go Green stamp set provides the perfect sentiment, while the Small Heart Punch creates a four-leaf-clover in the wink of an Irish eye! In a matter of minutes, you can create this clean and simple, KISSable card!
The Stampin' Schach Design Tips:
- White space doesn't have to be boring! Jazz it up with Mr. Big Shot and a Textured Impressions Folder. My folder du jour is Stampin' Up!s Perfect Polka Dots. Clean, classy and sassy!
- Who says hearts are only for Valentine's Day? Not St. Patrick! Four Handsome Hunter hearts can be assembled to make a lucky clover in seconds. More of a shamrock person? Use three hearts instead. A 1/2" Circle makes the perfect base on which to adhere the points of the hearts.
- Need a stem in a hurry? Put those Paper Snips to work, and snip a scrap of Handsome Hunter. How easy is that!
- Do the "Bling Thing"! A Clear Rhinestone Brad adds sparkle, while a snippet of Basic Black 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon adds whimsy and balance to the layout!
Time to get stampin'! This afternoon I will be working on my next Pals Paper Arts challenge card. Stay tuned early next week for a sneak peek! In the meantime, there is still time to participate in this week's KISS challenge. Check out the Pals Paper Arts Gallery for inspiration. So, before you go, let me know what you think about today's St. Paddy's card by leaving me a comment. And remember, if you ever have a question about the cards that I make, or the products that I use, please email me. Until next time...
