Friday Mashup! Luck of the Irish!

Hello Stamping Friends!! It's Friday...WooHoo! I have had an intense week at work, so I a sooooooooooo ready for the weekend! I am doing a Stampin' Up workshop tomorrow, which will be a fun change of pace. In the meantime, it's time for another Friday Mashup challenge...and Rita is the hostess with the mostest! The theme is perfect for March, and truly perfect for ths little Irish gal! Hope you play along!

1. Make a project for St. Patrick's Day

2. Make a project using at least 2 punches

3. Or Mash it Up and make a project for St. Patrick's Day using at least 2 punches

I went back and forth in this challenge. I have 2 customers who have birthdays on March 17th, so I figure a birthday card would be good. Then there was this funky color challenge on splitcoaststampers. I decided to Mash it all up!!

I started with a river rock card base. My verse, the famous Irish blessing, is from another stamp company (Our Daily Bread Designs.) I stamped it in basic black on very vanilla. Next, I punched out 4 hearts, placed them down with dotto (temporary adhesive) and sponged all around with river rock ink, then garden green ink. I nearly forgot a stem...but it's barely there! I added this delicate ribbon in lucky limeade (FREE Sale-a-Bration goodie!). The sentiment is from On Your Birthday, in lucky limeade, mounted on very vanilla and garden green in the familiar duo of the word window and modern label punches. That's it...very quick, clean, and simple!

Be sure to play along...use keyword FM48 in your online gallery, and link up to the Friday Mashup blog, where you will see some very fun inspiration projects!

  1. HI Kim,

    I love that poem. Written years ago but so ageless.

    Great card this week.

  2. I love River Rock and how it can take on another color depending how you used it.. It really looks green in your project.

  3. Love that poem Kim and the way you sponged the shamrock! The colors also work great for the challenge!

  4. I love this sponging idea with the blessing in the center. Awesome!
