Stamp your own background for your clean and simple project
And our sponsor this week is the fabulous Ellen Hutson! The winner of this week's challenge will receive a $25 gift certificate to spend here. Awesome, right?
So since it is March, I chose to make a card to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, and I knew the perfect stamps to use to make the background for this paper yummy:
For this card, I went straight to the A Magical Spring stamp set from Paper Smooches. I knew the shamrock would make the perfect stamped background, and how could I resist that leprechaun?!? I stamped and colored his skin, hat, clover, and shoes on some Copic X-Press Blending card stock, then paper-pieced his clothing and hair with some cute patterned papers. I added some gold Stickles to his buckles and bow tie. I fussy-cut around him, and stood him on the flag-cut sentiment panel. Here's a close-up:
