Belated St. Pat's Day

A Happy St. Patrick's Day card I made last month using a sketch from the Verve Stamps Blog. Even though I didn't participate in the challenge, I thought this was a fun sketch to use. All stamp images are $1 stamps I bought last year that I finally inked up. The green papers are from Hot Off the Press and I used my Fiskars threading water punch for the scalloped edging.


New to paper crafting and stamping? Well StampTV is the site to see! This great site was started by Gina K of GinaK Designs. StampTV is a great place to see videos of various techniques from Gina herself. There are weekly challenges with a chance to win prizes, a forum to share and learn with other paper crafters, a gallery full of great projects and much more.

Here are a few cards that I made last month using two techniques; kissing and split screen.

I used the kissing technique on the t-shirt card using the Little Tee's stamp set.

I stamped the tulips from the A Year of Flowers stamp set. I like my coloring and design on this card but I should have only cut the image in thirds; that would have looked much better. But it's not too bad for the first time of doing a split screen.
