True Happiness

When I made the Together Forever card I just loved the color palette. I'm not sure where I got the set of saying but I have had them for a long time. Think they are from Marcella by K that I got at Target. They go so beautifully with the BasicGrey Wisteria I just knew I had to make more cards and put them together. Lavender card stock cut 5.5 by 8.5 scored at 4.25. First mat 5.25 x 4 second layer 5x 3.75 embossed with cuttlebug birds & swirls. Mat for saying 1 1/4 by 3.75. Swirl from Cindy Loo page 29 border cut at 1.25 inches. Two light green crystals and a little sparkle writer by Studio G. Added to the Challenge over at

Happy Saint Patrick's Day

Dark green card stock cut 5.5 x 8.5 scored at 4.25. Lighter green card stock mat cut 5.25 x 4 run through
Cuttlebug A2 Embossing Folder, Tiny Mosaic Texture folder. I cut the pot from black card stock Doodlecharms page 89 at 3" and cut off the handle. The coins I cut from Plantin Schoolbook circle page 72 at 1", 3/4" and 1/2 inch I stamped them with a Studio G stamp I purchase last year at AC Moore. I use Stazon olive green ink. Pot of Gold is also from a Studio G kit I got last year and stamped with the olive green ink. I used Ranger Gold embossing powder on the "Gold" and attached it to the mat with This to That foam tabs. I like these because they are very Thick! The grass is also from Plantin Schoolbook page 69 cut twice once at 1 1/2inches the at 1" I cut the strips down to fit. I made the rainbow with white card stock and with a q-tip applied non-smear Pastels from The Stencil Collection.
