Shamrockin

>> Saturday, March 4, 2017

Top o' the mornin' to ya!

I have two Irish cards for you today.
The first uses the new greeting Love and Laughter Friends 011G.
I also used Shamrock Swag 1080F, Four Leaf Clover 890A,  and Everything Irish 204G.  On the beer I used some Snow Pen for foam.
I fussy cut all the items on the frame and used a die


to cut the frame and sentiment (My Favorite Things)
The background is embossed with a folder from Elizabeth Craft Designs

This second card features our new Jazz Dancers 018G. She has a derby on and so reminds me of an Irish dancer.  Her outfit is green with "black" trim which I added some glitter gel pen to (looks silver when tilting the card as you can see below). I added some sparkle to her shoes too! I also used Shamrock Background 326H, Shamrockin Day 335F, Woven Plaid 613P and the new Irish Good Luck Circle 006D. I used the Spellbinder A2 rectange dies for my image frame and Stampendous dies for the sentiment framing. A round punch (1 1/4") for the Irish Good Luck Circle.

I tilted the card to show all the sparkle


This card was really fun to make and I was able to use one of my favorites, the woven plaid stamp, in various shades of green.
Hey, how much more Irish can you get, eh?
My mom was a red headed Irish girl (and Cherokee) with blue/green eyes.
I ended up looking just like my dad with dark hair and green eyes and neither of my kids had red hair (both blonde, blue eyed) but my grandson's hair looks just like this girl's hair, redder than red!  His hair practically glows in the sunlight!
He is proud to be a "ginger"!
Thanks for visiting today!

Wonderful Irish cards, Robin. Your coloring and details are awesome on both. Love the stage and the beer with foam the most. Love how your mind works. Well done cards as usual! Your Irish shows through in these cards! I have some Irish and Indian in me too - another thing we have in common. Hugz

2 very excellent cards Robin! Both have incredible layouts and perfect coloring! Love how you die cut the swag and used it under the Everything Irish stamp and how the sparkle changes from black to silver on your Irish dancer card! Great plaid too!

These are wonderful, Robin! It's funny..I started to use the Shamrockin' greeting w/ my Irish dancer. I think your dancer & mine must be twins, lol. BTW, my mom is Irish w/ red hair/blue eyes. Dad is Cherokee & dk eyes/dk hair. All 3 of us had blonde hair & either green or blue eyes (mine are green).
