Happy St. Patrick's Day, stamping friends!
I thought it would only be appropriate to have today's card brought to you by my Irish friend and downline, Darla Eigenschink!
She used the Lucky Shamrock single stamp on the last page of the Occasions Mini Catalog to make this quick and easy St. Patty's Day greeting. To add some ultra-shine to the shamrock, Darla added a bit of gloss with Crystal Effects!
The background is so fun! She layered Garden Green punches from the Curly Label Punch in a diagonal brick pattern—love this look! She also used some Garden Green striped paper from the Regals Designer Patterns Paper Stack, and a Pumpkin Pie 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon for some contrast.
Thanks for sharing, Darla!

Well, I wanted to show you this cool little trick for making a shamrock out of the Small Heart Punch, but I'm at my old house and the punch I need is at my new house (that's just how it seems to go lately).
So, I'll take the easy way out and link to the tip that I found on Mike Funke's Stampin' Style blog: Luck o' The Irish.
He used 3 punched hearts, and a partially-punched heart for the stem, to make the clovers on these Petal Card Punch boxes. Too cute! He also used the Got Treats stamp set for the polka dot shamrock image. Learn how to create these cute boxes at Mary Fish's blog: Petal Card Punch Boxes.
Speaking of Lucky…
My little dogger, Lucky, is doing much better! He is getting used to the new routine and surroundings at our new home, and is starting to take the stairs a little bit slower. Heh. More updates to come…
Many blessings to you today and always!
