Shamrock Fields Blessing

New Releases

If you were around last week you notice our first spotlight day was all about St. Patrick's Day. What a great set !

My card today is one I showed at the release party last Friday night. I hope you were able to attend, but pardon me for showing a re-run... there's an extra portion of the card I want to share today.

I made up a pendant for the bow embellishment using cardstock, stamped Verve shamrock and a couple layers of Ultra Thick embossing enamel from Ranger. The embossing will darken the image a little bit, so plan for that in your cardstock and ink selection. I punched a hole at the top and and added a DIY jump ring  by wrapping some wire around a pencil tip and pinching it closed once I put the shamrock on it. Then I added a bead on another wire by bending one end so it wouldn't fall off and looping through the jump ring.

Verve has the whole January Verve Stamp release and  Verve A Cut Above die release as two 15% off collections right now. They are a fabulous! Go check other lovely sales too, just in time for your Valentine projects!
