Happy St Patricks Day

Hello and happy Saturday. Today i have 2 cards made with the very new Alota Rubberstamps "St. Patricks" and Reginas' Cutting Cafe images.
Iam native from Germany and we do not celebrate St. Patricks day, so i was kind of worried what i could create.. but the cute stamps made it really easy to make some fast and nice cards with not many supplies i needed.

Stamp: Alota Rubberstamp "Shamrock Basket"
(this stamp has the perfect size so a Magnolia Tilda could sit on it)
This card is 5.5 x 5.5 inches. I cut out the clover and curled the leafs with a pen to give it more dimension - adhered it to the circle shape with pop up dots. The clover is painted with Shimmerz paints in Celery Green.

Stamps: 4 leaf clover, Lucky Terri Bug and sentiment is out of the great St. Patricks day set that Regina from The Cutting Cafe designed
Embellishments: Shimmerz paints in Celery Green, Wild Wasbi Ribbon, Making Memories, SU brads
Papers: Wild Wasabi, Heidi Swapp
You know how much i love Stampin up products :-) i use the papers on every card i craft. Have you seen Marlenes amazing blog candy??? She gives several kits away stacked with lovely papers and even Stampin up punches!!!
