Today I have some of the new DRS designs ST. Patrick Day stamps.

I stamped the Tall Shamrocks and colored with Copic Markers then the Tiny St. Patrick's Day this was cut with a Spellbinder die and layered on to green cs then a white card.

Then on the inside I stamped the Shamrock and Shenanigans ( who does not like some Shenanigans) I stamped the Small Shamrock Group  in the top corners and I used it to stamp the strip across the bottom.

And look at this we have a new Shamrock Oval Recognition Stamp. I stamped it and fussy cut then layered it on to a green oval. The strip was made with the Small Shamrock Group.

Snowflakes and Hearts

Hi all , As I was planing my card for today I was thinking about snowflakes and how lacy and beautiful they are and with Valentines Day being in February there could be snow. So for my card I decided to combine the two.

For the front of the card I used a embossing folder then added some pearls to the center of the snowflakes. I stamped the Filigree Heart  and embossed with Recollection Party Pink Then I stamped two of the Small Silhouette Heart they were embossed with the same Party Pink powder.these were fussy cut.

For the inside I stamped the Medium Filigree Snowflake and embossed with Detail White. I die cut a D' lites  Oval  and stamped the Small Valentines Day Greeting and embossed with the Party pink embossing powder.

Just a reminder to join in the Heart to Heart challenge this week, you could win a $10.00 voucher to the DRS design store.

Filigree Snowflakes

Hi Stampers, my card today uses two of DRS designs new stamps the Warm Thoughts 1 Line Greeting and the Medium Filigree Snowflake.

I use a square die to cut three opening. I stamped the Large Filigree Snowflake going off the page then embossed it with white embossing powder. The Warm thoughts greeting was stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder. Thin I used blue ink to sponge around the snowflake. On another piece of paper I embossed with white the Medium Filigree Snowflake  and did the same blue sponging. I didn't want the snowflakes centered I wanted them to appeared as if they were captured falling.
