Shimmering Shamrock Blog Hop 3/13-19


Good Morning to all of you joining me today. I first want to say "Happy St Patrick's Day". I want to welcome you to Tanya's "Scrappy Scavenger's Shimmering Shamrock" Blog Hop. I am so happy to join this group of talented ladies for my first ever blog hop. If you came from Nancy Owen's blog,
 http://www.fancywithnancy.blogspot.com/ then you are in the right place. If you are just strarting and want to see all of these beautiful projects then you would start back at Tanya's Scrappy Scavenger's blog,
www.ScrappyScavenger.blogspot.com .
 I love St Patrick''s Day, not only because I am part Irish and have red hair, but because I love green. I love to wear green, drink green beer, eat green eggs and ham. All the fun stuff assoicated with this day. I am very happy to be part of this shimmering shamrock extravaganza.


I wanted to make a banner for this jolly oh holiday. I went with the typical saying, Happy St.Patricks Day. I cut the lettering at 5 inches from Birthday Bash. Like I have said in past post before that this is one of my new favorite Cartidges. I use it a lot for the font and there are tons of cute cuts. To go over the cream color cardstock of each font letter I used Tim Holtz's Distress ink (pelled paint) . The background is white 5x6 cards I cut in half. Over each piece I used some more green distress ink on them. For the greeen  boarder I cut  from Plantain Schoolbook it was cut at 6 1/2 iches and distress around the edges with the greeen ink. I made it pop by using adhesive pop dots.


                                                                                    
The two Leprechauns I cut @ 5 inches using the Paper Doll Dress up cartidge. Using Momento black ink I stamped with peachy keen stamps to make the faces and pink chalk for the cheeks. I hightlighted the clothing and rainbow with some stickles. This makes the images pop. To create the 1 inch shamrocks on the font.  I put elmers glue and sprinkled them with Martha Stewart's green glitter. I added some ribbon to tie it all together. To create a beautiful shimmering shamrock banner. I love how this came out and I hope you do.
