How about some Holiday Home Decor for St. Patrick's Day Week projects?
I found this sweet memo pin-board frame in the sale bin. It was just $5 including the rhinestone pins. I had a lot of fun putting together these little punched cards and pinwheels. Here is a closer look..
To create a personalized decor look I used my initial stamped (Broadsheet Alphabet) and heat embossed with Gumball Green Embossing Powder. I also stamped two Shamrocks, one on Whisper White, one on Lucky Limeade Card Stock. I used my Paper Snip Scissors to carefully cut out the shamrocks and popping them up with Stampin' Dimensionals. I also added Basics Rhinestones in the center of each shamrock that I colored with an orange Sharpie Marker.
All week you'll see me using the very affordable (just $6.95) Lucky Day single stamp for my projects. Layering circle punches I created three little embellishments that I pined in the corner of the frame.
Using the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle, the 1-3/4" Circle and the 1-3/8" Circle Punches in Tangerine Tango, Gumball Green, and Lucky Limeade Card Stock layers with stamping and the First Editions Specialty Designer Series Paper. Together they are perfect for any St. Patrick's projects.
The Designer Series Paper International Bazaar has a Lucky Limeade paper that was a nice echo to the punched circles in this project. I used it to create the pinwheel. I cut two pieces each 2" x 8". Fold them concertina style every 1/4", tape together with Sticky Strip and create your pinwheel and layer with punched circles in Tangerine Tango, Gumball Green, and Lucky Limeade Card Stock.
Snips of various ribbon including Tangerine Tango Polka Dot ribbon, 5/8" Crochet Trim Victoria, Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta and Natual 7/8" Cotton Ribbon. I stamped Lucky! on the natural ribbon using Basic Black Craft ink. I cut the word and the image apart, to create an even MORE versital stamp (two for one).
I echoed the polka dot ribbon with tiny dots of my white uni-ball Signo Gel Pen to add a nice detail on each scallop.
One good stamp and a color scheme and you can do so much! The details really make it. Heat embossing and a tight color scheme, really give this project such a lovely finished look.
Have a wonderful week. Hope you are getting lots of inspiration for your holiday preparations…stay tuned. Diana
