First things, first.  Happy National Tortilla Chip Day!  Just thinking about them makes me want to send out for some avocados to make us some guacamole!  A nice little salsa wouldn't be too bad either!  I'll start the music….

Thanks for all the nice shout outs that you gave me for the last two videos that I posted here for St. Paddy's Day projects.  We're already shopping for my green outfit so that I don't get pinched any more often than usual.

A few of you wanted to know how we got the glitzy Shamrock (shown below) on one of the versions of the Shamrock card in yesterday's video.  It's easy!

Click 4 close up

  1. Stamp your shamrock image (this one's the Lucky Shamrock #121939 in Garden Green).
  2. Let dry (doesn't take long).
  3. Take a VersaMark pad & press it onto the stamped image.  This is sometimes called "Direct to Paper" because you're using the ink pad like a stamp.
  4. Dump Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder #101930 onto your paper.
  5. Heat with Heat Tool.
  6. Punch out with 1" Circle Punch #119868 & mount with a dimensional.

Click 4 Close Up Guy dogs don't do a lot of glitter, but I like this way because it doesn't shed like a dog.   You can rub it with your finger & it stays put. 

Here's the finished card.  This is the one with the smaller borders.  I like the other card made in the video with the normal size borders.

Just click for a close up.

It's a great time to be the blog dog of a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.
