Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I know, Valentine's Day hasn't even come and gone yet... but I got my beautiful Peachy Keen stamps in the mail and could not wait to start playing with them. So I imagine you will be seeing a fair share of St Patty day projects mixed in with my Valentine ones for a bit.

Anyway, I think this is the CUTEST leprechaun I have ever seen so I just had to make him up. Seriously, it seemed like he was just smiling at me daring me not to stamp and color him ;).

Do you see that beautiful patterned paper. It is a brand new Peachy Keen Stamps background stamp called Lucky Day Shamrock. I used my favorite background stamp technique and I stamped it with a watermark ink pad. Then I sprinkled it with CLEAR embossing powder, heated it up with my heat gun and VOILA a beautiful, glossy, embossed background. The cute little leprechaun and sentiment come from the Kiss Me Leprechaun stamp set. And for the golden colored piece behind the leprechaun I cut out Emma's XL Label Die and stamped it with one of the coordinating XL Label Border stamps.

Okay that is it for today. I hope you are having a wonderful and lucky day! Take care! Hugs- Glora
