Lucky Leprechaun, St. Patty's Day Blog Hop

Lucky Leprechaun, St. Patty’s Day Blog Hop

Hi all, hope you are having a GREEN and LUCKY day today. It is St. Patrick’s Day and my you all have the luck of the Irish with you.
If you have popped on here from Crafty Card Gallery then you are in the right place. If not, be sure to head over to Beyond Scrapin and start your LUCKY and Green creative adventure.

I know I am going to shock some of my followers, because I did a set of 6 cards. I know I am not a true card maker, but I am trying and think I am improving with each one I do. Well these 6 cards are also very GREEN in that I used only stuff I had already, and I used ATC’s that I use to have hanging on my wall and wasn’t sure what to do with any longer. Well I designed some cards using these wonderful ATC’s.

So here you go:

All the ATC's on these cards are from a 2009 ATC swap I participated in. I wish I had who made each of these, but when I glued them to the poster I had on my wall, well I ruined the backs. All Card bases and are using Picture Perfect cardstock from my stash. The White cardstock is from Stampin Up and Picture Perfect. The Cream speckled cardstock is by Picture Perfect as well.

The embossing folder used was from Stampin Up - Square Latice #119976. The ink was also from Stampin up - Garden Green. The ribbon was from CTMH - Kentucky Green #Z120. The card base was from Picture Perfect (not sure of the color).

The card base is from Picture Perfect (don't know the color). The pattern paper was from CTMH scrap I had in my scrap pile so don't know pattern name. The ribbon is from CTMH - Kentucky Green #Z120. The ink used is Stampin Up - Garden Green. The Stamp "happy st. patrick's day" is from Stampin Up - Tweeny Tiny Wishes #115370. The 4 leaf clover stamp is also from Stampin Up - So Happy for You #123220 - from the Sale-A-Bration free stamp set. (contact me before the 29th of March to get a discount on your product total and get a free stamp set also)

The card base is Picture Perfect (don't know the name). The fiber is from my stash. The ink used is Stampin ups - Garden Green, Wild Wasabi, and Certainly Celery. The stamp used on the white background piece is from Stampin Up - So Happy for You #123220 from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. (contact me before the 29th of March to get a discount on your product total and get a free stamp set also)

The ribbon is CTMH - Kentucky Green #Z120. The die cut border is a Cuttlebug Die, but not sure of which one. (need to go and mark all my dies with what set they are from) The pattern paper is a scrap from my stash of CTMH.

The ribbon is Kentucky Green from CTMH #Z120. The stamped 4 leaf clover on background sheet is Stampin Up - Leaf Lines #114393. The inks are from Stampin Up - Garden Green, Wild Wasabi, and Certainly Celery.

The ribbon used was from CTMH - Clover Meadow #Z231. The ink used was Stampin Up - Certainly Celery. The stamps were also Stampin Up - Tweeny Tiny Wishes #115370 and So Happy for You #123220 from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. (contact me before the 29th of March to get a discount on your product total and get a free stamp set also)

Hope you liked my cards, even though I can't take credit for all the work as the ATC's were made by others. But this was a way that I felt that the ATC's were being put to a good use. Thank you for hopping over and now please head over to A Girl and Her Craft Box.
Hugs and a Irish Blessing to you all.
