Good morning! I have a cute one for you today! Do you all have those stamps and dies you HAD to have only to file them away into the craft abyss? Well, this set isn’t that old I bought it last year but did I use it…….YES-TODAY 😁
Honestly, anything Anita Jeram designs is adorable but I LOVE this St. Patrick Day inspired set. With a maiden name like O’Brien there my be some celebrating going on in the house! But today I am combining some strange elements and I LOVE the final outcome. Let me know what you think in the comments. I encourage you to try some different backgrounds with your die-cut critters. It’s a different look but I know my friend is going to like this card!
I am using the 4 Leaf Clover Stamps & Dies by Anita Jeram from Colorado Craft Company. These stamps and dies are available in the shop and I have linked them below. I am also playing with the Poly Glaze foiling sheets from Gina K Designs. I started off by creating the background with the Delicate Basket Poly Glaze sheet. I have another tutorial for this easy foiling method HERE. So check that out. For now I am going to start AFTER the foiling process. First I colored random areas of the pattern with 3 different green alcohol markers. I didn’t cover the entire panel with coloring. After coloring the select bricks I Ink blended the panel with Distress Oxide-Shabby Shutters. Look at the shine from those Poly Glaze sheets! The photo doesn’t do it justice!
I then stamped the little mouse with his shamrock in Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink. I added clear embossing powder and heat embossed. I then die-cut him and colored him with alcohol markers.
Once your Poly Glaze sheet is dry, prep it with some anti-static powder and stamp your sentiments. Cover with clear embossing powder and heat. Next cut a piece of black card stock 1/8” larger. Adhere the two together with your choice of adhesive.
Pop the mouse up with some foam and add some gems! Finally add the entire panel to a top-folding A2 card base. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below! I love hearing from you.
