With St. Patty's Day coming up I thought I would show you a couple of different ways to use today's featured set.
 
First up is a clean and simple (CAS) card I made by just stamping the large shamrock in the lower right hand corner and coloring with koh-i-noor pencils and a blender marker before stamping the saying further up the card.  The only embellishments I added to it was some bling to the center of the shamrock and some ribbon I've had in my stash for years.
 
My second card features the leprechaun from Lots of Luck paired with Scenic Selections.  After stamping my images in memento tuxedo black onto MFP white card stock and colored with prismacolor markers, I stippled Tim Holtz tumbled glass and forest moss distress inks around the edges before stamping some birds and grass from Scenic Selections.  After popping up the image panel over some ribbon from my stash, I added a few bling shamrocks, faux brads, and ice stickles to the center of the colored shamrocks in the pot.
 
I did pretty much the same color and embellishment scheme for my third card only changed the saying and background designer paper.  The pot of shamrocks has also been popped up using pop dots and has ice stickles highlighting the centers.
 
Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs to leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.
