Happy St. Patrick's Day!

A couple weeks early to say Happy St. Patrick's Day! but you know being a crafter you have to start projects a bit earlier than usual. ;p

Here is a set of cards & matching gift box I made with this amazing printable stamp set made by the very talented Regina for her The Cutting Café.

All the clovers, jumbled words, lucky me frame, flower pot and circle stamps are from her huge St. Patrick's Day Printable Stamp Set and I didn't use everything! There's actually more!



I absolutely LOVE this shimmer paper by Heidi Grace!


I love the design of Regina's clovers:


Here's one of the circle stamps from this set which you can use a 1 1/2" punch with it:


I printed the Lucky Me frame and then cut out the frame from some gold cardstock and I just had to cut out more clovers from this gorgeous shimmer paper:





And another one of the circle stamps:




I printed a couple of the Jumbled Words stamp together on a PP and then cut out more clovers with this gorgeous shimmer paper (can you tell yet how much I love this PP!) and added a few rhinestones:






And of course I just had to add another big clover with, yes you guessed it, the gorgeous shimmer PP and also some rhinestones:




I printed the pot on some PPs and CS, but them out and popped them up:


I combined the flower pot of clovers with part of one of the circle stamps:


And the matching gift box I made holds all 4 cards and matching envelops. This also can be found by Regina from her Box for Quarter Fold Cards template/cutting file.
