Happy St. Patricks Day

Happy St. Patricks Day from me and Retta!!
 
Why Retta too you may ask?
 
Because she's my new best friend and designer of the adorable leprechaun
I'm featuring in this adorable card!
She also drew the background and designed the digital paper that's the sky!
She's so multi talented!!
This is the inside of my card.  the designer paper I used--------was Retta's too! Digital paper.
I personally have never used digital paper.  This has opened a whole new idea for me.  No storage issues. No running out of your favorite paper. No buying a whole pack of paper and using 3 or 4 designs and the rest you don't like.
Goodness! Where have I been?  When I find something new and wonderful-I feel like a kid on Christmas morning.
But it's St. Patrick's Day!! LOL



I guess you could say I found my pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!  God has blessed me with a new and wonderful friend and artist.  It's my pleasure to share with you all the wonderful things she makes. 
She's opened the world of SVG (cutter files) as well as adding to my stencil stash & designing digital images that I adore.

If you want to browse thru the many stencils she has for sell:

Thanks for stopping by and I hope all your days will be blessed and you'll be a blessing to others!

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
