Rain Boots and Shamrocks

Hello Die-Versions Fans,

Top of the Mornin' To You!  And a Happy Saint Patrick's Day too!!  On this joyous Irish holiday I  wanted to take a wee moment of your time and show you two cards that I have created!! My first card features the new Rain Boots die from the new Die-Versions February Spring Release.  The Spring release is so much fun ~ I want all the dies!

For this A2 card I started with kelly green card stock for the base of the card and I added the printed paper after inking the edges with green ink.  I used this patterned paper because it reminded me of rain coming down!  I cut out the Rain Boots die once in the bright green paper and then placed that on the mint green paper and fussy cut around it, next I took the same two papers and cut out the         Whispers Made in the Shade umbrella die pieced them together and then I added them both to the card.  Next I stamped the sentiment on a piece of white paper and I took my distress inks to make a rainbow and then added that to the card!  And here is my next card for St. Patty's Day!!

For this A2 card I took some kelly green cardstock for the base of the card and then added the Irish Plaid paper to the base.  Next I cut out the  Whispers Bug Jar die twice, once in white paper and once in vellum.  Then I took a shamrock punch I have and punched out a bunch of green shamrocks and glued them on the white paper jar.  Next I colored the lid with a grey Copic marker, then I added the vellum jar on top of the jar and shamrocks.  Next I put the Good Luck sticker onto the mint green paper and cut that out like a tag and took some two tone green bakers twine and and tied the tag onto to the jar and added that to the card.   Next I die cut the Sweet Wordlets Blessing in the mint green paper and added that to the card.   I love the way both the cards turned out!  And now I have a little Irish Blessing for you that goes along with both cards!

Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers–
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours–
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!
Happy Saint Patrick's Day!!
