It's All Shamrocks and Rainbows

Happy St. Patrick's Day! My kids set up traps to lure leprechauns. That lil' bugger wrote on the mirrors and windows in my house, scattered balloons all over the floor of the bathroom and left them a bunch of gold in one of their traps (yellow m&ms). It was a fun way to start their morning.

Me? I decided to make a couple of cards. A few weeks ago, Paper Crafts had a call out for cards based on sketches. I printed out the sketches for reference in the future. I used one to make this card.

These are two new stamps from a muse studio. It is great to have the Calendar Fun and Essential Sentiments sets to pull quick cards together!

This card also features new a muse studio stamps and a paper flower! The sentiment was stamped using the Grunge Block alphabet and part of the Peace on Earth set. I made the shamrock from one of the paper flowers by cutting off one petal, making a slit up the middle and pushing the edges together. These flowers are easily colored with Copic markers so that you can customize each to suit your needs - brilliant!

I've been busy working on making cards with some other new a muse studio goodies, so I should have some new things to share soon. Enjoy your day!
