Shamrock Time!

I love St. Patrick's Day and as luck would have it Rubber Stamp Tapestry just released a few new stamp sets perfect for this time of year.  

I'm using Shamrocks & Clover and Luck of the Irish to create a Saint Patrick's Day shaker card.

I decided to pull out my Yasutomo mica watercolor paints to create a really pretty background paper to start with. I laid down a couple colors of green then went back and applied some gold over top. It really is so beautifully shimmery in person. These paints give you such a luxe look.

I then stamped the clover & shamrocks in all sorts of shades of green around the edges. I stamped the sentiment in the center twice a bit offset.

I created a shaker window using cream and green cardstock and filled it with Doodles Paper Playground Sparkle Blends limited edition sequins mix called Champagne Bubbles. I LOVE this's got some really cool ring confetti sequins included in the mix that are so fun and different. Gives the shaker a really fun feel.

Once I had assembled the shaker I flicked a bit of the gold metallic paint on the front of the shaker for good measure. The shaker element was then mounted on a black card base to make the gold really pop.  Finally I stamped a few extra shamrocks and clover on scraps of paper, fussy cut and mounted them in the corners. Such a fun way to celebrate a forgotten holiday.
