Thinking of You at St. Patrick's Day

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome back and thanks for stopping by. Today I am sharing the new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas. Hope you will join us this week!

This Week's Challenge...
St. Patrick's Day
What began as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland has become an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing, special foods and a whole lot of green.

Here is my Design Team project...
I wanted to try a new technique that I learned at the Scrapbook Expo. I stamped my own background using foam craft and a Spellbinders.

Choose any Spellbinders that can be used as a background. I bought a new one at the Scrapbook Expo after attending my class. 

First, you cut the die from craft foam. I ran my through the Cuttlebug just like it was paper. You will have to remove the tiny pieces since the foam is thicker.  Then you stamp it really well with any color ink. Lastly, using a clear stamp block and double sided tape...stamp the design onto cardstock.

Add embellishments and decorate after the ink is dry. 
Other Materials:
white and yellow card stock
Bo Bunny pattern paper
VersaMagic ink ~ Tea Leaves
Spellbinders ~ Label One
KaDoodle Bug ~ Irish Sheep svg file
Bo Bunny stamp
yellow gems

Other Challenges:
KaDoodle Bug FB Challenge ~ St. Patrick's Day

Here is the one I made at the Orlando Scrapbook Expo in the Spellbinders class.
Hope you will join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week for our "St. Patrick's Daychallenge. The other design team members sure are full of luck this week because all their projects are amazing. Be sure to check them out.

Hope you will join the challenge this week!

  10. Oh my gosh! That is so clever making your own background stamp that way. Plus since it is foam it kind of has that softer look when stamped. Very neat! And what a great card for St. Pat's Day.
