Luck O' the Irish


Hi everyone.  Time for the newest challenge at Addicted to CAS - #34.  This challenge is being hosted by the fabulous Sandie (London Days) ... and she has chosen this timely word ...






Prize:  Stamp Set "It's all about you"
(Please follow the rules to be eligible to win)


Quick and very easy card today ... with my Silhouette Cameo doing most of the work :)  I downloaded this wonderful "subway" style large sentiment stamp.  I cut out a shamrock charm, coated it with Crystal Effects and then attached it using a silver brad.  Tip I learned from Jackie Topa:  use the tips of your scissors as a shim between the brad and your cardstock, and then open the tines at the back.  This way there will be some space so the charm is not pinched tight to the card ... the shamrock swings back and forth, adding interest to the card. :)

As always, the challenge for ATCAS #34 - Luck will be open for a full two weeks so there's lots of time to play.  You'll see there are some St. Patrick's Day cards done by the DT ... but luck can be a sentiment for many different occasions.  I hope you'll join us and have a chance to win some prizes.  We are lucky to have Karen as our Guest Designer for the month of March ... so check out the link to the challenge to see Karen's adorable card ... and the rest of the DTs fabulous cards - you'll be glad you did! :)







Stamps:  Digital image (Silhouette America)
Paper:  white (Neenah), gumball green (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Silhouette Cameo, printer, crystal effects, silver brad

Hi Loll so glad to be back this time missed you all . Love the graphic and bold design here and your gorgeous shiny charm adds a touch of pizzaz. Thanks for your kind comments but am sure your clever brain and you tube have far more to do with anything than my words. Take care and have a lovely weekend.

Loll, the subway sentiment was the perfect way to go for this challenge. The shiny shamrock and small pearl are the perfect way to finish it off. Gorgeous!
