Addicted to CAS Challenge #131




 Hi there blog friends ~ It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS and just in time to create a few St. Patrick's Day cards, our code word is Luck/Lucky!


I started by creating a stencil with a SSS heart die and used distress ink to create the shamrock. I used the same color to create an ombre effect for the die cut alphas, and to keep it monochromatic, I used sour apple cardstock for the stamped sentiment...a few silver stars and a stitched border, and that was it!
Happy Little Stampers is our Sponsor and Kylie is offering a $15.00 gift card for the winner! We hope you'll stop by and play along with us!



Thanks so much for stopping by,






Supplies:
Dies: SSS - Heart; MFT - Stitched Alphabet, Blueprints 15
Stamps: SSS - All My Love (sentiment); PTI - Birthday Balloons (stem)
Misc: Pretty Pink Posh - Silver Stars; Twisted Citron distress ink; Versafine - Onyx Black Ink

Fabulous transformation of the heart to a clover Barb. Very festive.

Sweet card, Barb! The ombre coloring on the letters looks great!

Betty Keefe said...

how clever you are in making your clover - i think St. Pat's day cards are difficult to make and this is wonderful inspiration!!

Bobby said...

Great idea to make and use a stencil, Barb. It leaves a soft color on the image and sentiment.

A stencil?? What a great idea, Barb - and I love that our brains were both thinking hearts, when clover/shamrocks were needed! I love your choice of greens...
I'm the lucky one to call you friend!

Your stenciled shamrock looks fabulous, Barb! Beautiful clean and CAS card. I will try my best to play along this challenge - I have great intentions but then time runs away with me!
