Teeny Tiny Wishes for a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy St Patrick's Day from Stamp Candy! #stampcandy

I wanted to use green for my project today, in honor of the holiday. I didn’t really find a good way to make shamrocks or clover that I haven’t already done. So I tried to create greenery along a wooden wall, and I used Glimmer Paper (yes, I did!) to add some sparkle. The Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (which should be in everyone’s collection) provided the sentiment. I hope you like what I came up with.

Here’s what I made:

Sweet Little Something for a Happy Easter

Today I’m sharing a card I made for the Candy Hearts team meeting monthly swap for February. The theme was Spring, including any Spring holiday or anything “Springy.” I used the Sweet Little Something stamp set to create the three stamp photorealistic image of the stuffed bunny. My new Stamparatus made it so so easy to make multiples of this card, all of them lined up perfectly. Just change the sentiment and this card could be used for a baby shower, child birthday, or any occasion calling for a sweet stuffed bunny!

Be on the lookout for swap cards from my Candy Hearts team in the next few days!

 

Here’s what I made:
