Hey there! Happy Monday!! It’s a holiday here in Western Australia. I enjoyed a lazy morning and have plans to spend time with my gorgeous family today.
For anyone who’s wondering about Little Mr Papercraft – he’s 6 months old now! He’s cute & cheeky and such a sweet little baby!!! There’s not as much crafting going on as I would like – but that gorgeous little smile makes up for it!
I’ve kept my project simple for today’s Stamp Review Crew hop with my international demonstrator friends. The theme is the Amazing Life stamp set from the Occasions catalogue. You’ll find it on page 28 – bundled with the amazing Rectangle Stitched Framelits.
I’m not sure if it’s the looming St Patrick’s Day celebrations this month, but the lucky 4-leaf clover took my fancy and I decided to use this to make a green festive card. I intend to send this to an Irish friend as a card for a St Patrick’s blessing, but you could use it at any of of the year for a friend that’s feeling a but down on their luck.
The clovers are stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and coloured with Dark Call Me Clover and Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. There’s never much blending going on when I pull out my Stampin’ Blends – I just love them for the smooth colouring. They are an absolute joy to work with!
You’ll spy some rectangle stitching on the card – not just because they are bundled with this stamp set but rather because I’m putting stitched rectangles on E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. I can’t get enough of them!
The ‘sending’ is from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set on a rectangle stitched framelit. I cut the rectangle down to be a shorter version – I love how versatile the shapes are!
Sadly this Sale-A-Bration ribbon retired, but there’s plenty more Sale-A-Bration choices including 8 more level 1 choices added this month. You can see all the level 1 choices by clicking here. *** Level 1 choices are free with a $90+ Stampin’ Up! order in Australia.
Thanks for hopping with me today! Next stop is the US with Holly Krautkremer and her amazing project!
I hope you have a great week!
