Waltzingmouse Stamps "Luck" Blog Party!


It's one of my favorite blog parties of the year!  It's St. Patrick's Day, and what better way to celebrate than with Waltzingmouse Stamps!  Claire, our favorite gal from Northern Ireland, is hosting a party from her blog HERE...the theme this month?
Why it's LUCK, of course :)...

Still not tired of the newly-released stamp set Folk Art Medallion!  It is quite possible that I could stamp a card with it every day, THAT'S how much fun it is to create with!  Today I paired it with some other WMS stamps to make a good luck card...


I stamped the medallion, added mini shamrocks from the set Irish Blessings, and then cut it out.  Stamped the sentiment from Fancy Phrases at the bottom of a sheet of Fine Linen cardstock, and then embossed the paper with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.




Before I even began stamping, I spritzed Tattered Angels "Guilded Gold" Glimmer Mist onto Rustic White cardstock and then let it dry.  So perfect to add a bit o' gold for today! The whole medallion just shimmers in the sunlight, and the added rhinestones really add to the sparkle.

Upload your creation HERE on Claire's blog by tomorrow (March 18th) at 1:30 PM EST.  One randomly-selected participant will win a stamp set of choice! Claire will announce the winner on Wednesday March 20th as well as highlight some special projects that caught her eye along the way.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...can't wait to see all of the lucky creations!

Stamps:  Folk Art Medallion, Irish Blessings, & Fancy Phrases, all Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  PTI Rustic White and Fine Linen cardstock, A Muse Studio Fern cardstock, and Simple Stories "Take a Hike" patterned paper
