Green Beer

Hi Bloggers.

It's St. Patrick's Day next month and there's an appropriate sentiment on the Creative Expressions Cheers Stamp Set. Here's one of the green cards I made for the shows last Monday.

For the background, I inked through the Stone Mask with Peeled Paint Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I then stamped the 'Celebrate' stamp from the Cheers set several times using Peeled Paint. With the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Plaid Stamp using Forest Moss Distress Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and then inked around the edges with Forest Moss using Cut n Dry Foam. I added an Idea-ology Custom Fastener to each corner.

I stamped the pitcher from the Cheers Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured it using Meadow Lime, Soft Moss and Jade Teal Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks from the Garden Twist Set. I cut out using Spellbinders Labels 28 and inked through the die with Peeled Paint.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with the clear powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Matting Basics A and inked through the die with Peeled Paint.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
