Use the Stamparatus to stamp the image (Just Because) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a piece of Whisper White card stock. Watch my 4 Best Tips Cling Stamp video here for tips on using the new and improved stickers.

Crop using a die-cutting machine, platform, and Rectangle Stitched die. Wrap with Linen Thread, securing with a bow over the right side of the flower pot.

Color with Light Poppy Parade and Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

So Hoppy Together St. Patrick’s Day Card

Learn How to Create this St Patrick's Day Card using the So Hoppy Together Stamp Set and coordinating Hoppy For You Dies by Stampin' Up! Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

Just when I thought I might not do a St. Patricks Day card this year, this idea popped (or “hopped”) in my head!  I couldn’t wait to have my frog friend juggle shamrocks!   Isn’t he fun?  

SAB Coordination Product So Hoppy Together

The frog and unicycle image is from the So Hoppy Together stamp set (Sale-A-Bration 1st release) which you can earn FREE with a $50 order.  The coordinating Hop Around Framelits Dies will be available for purchase March 1 – 31 (or while supplies last).  If you love them, I suggest you “hop on it” on March 1.

The birthday card shown below was also created using the So Hoppy Together Stamp Set and Coordinating Hop Around Framelits Dies.  You can view the original post, supplies and details here
