Sparkle N Sprinkle's Luck of the Irish Clovers {02.15.2017}

Sparkle N Sprinkle February stamp release

Hi! I made a card using Sparkle N Sprinkle's Luck of the Irish Enchantress stamp set, which is one of their stamps for their February release. The stamp set is really cute, with this sweet little girl sitting in a pot of gold.

But, I wanted to show that the stamp set can be used in multiple ways. So, I made a card using only the clover and one of the sentiments. Here is my card.

First of all, I "stamped" the sentiment by lightly rubbing the Nuvo Glue Pen Large onto my sentiment stamp. Then, I stamped the sentiment onto cardstock, and then I let the glue dry until it was tacky. After it was tacky, I dusted on the Silver Bullion Gilding Flakes and rubbed the flakes into the tacky glue with a Mini Blender Brush. I dusted off the unstuck flakes, and viola!, the sentiment was gilded! I die cut the sentiment into a tag shape, and distress inked the edges to give it some extra dimension.

I die cut a little grommet circle from my tag dies, and covered it with Versamark Ink, and sprinkled on Forest Green embossing powder and heat set it. I repeated this several times to give the grommet a lot of dimension. Then, I dotted some adhesive from the Fine Tip Nuvo Glue Pen and then adhered the grommet to the tag.

Embossing Powders

I wanted to use several green embossing powders to make a field of clovers for my background. I whipped out my Forest Green, Moss, Spring Willow, and Key Lime embossing powders. I dusted my cardstock with my Anti Static Bag, then stamped the clover a few times with my Versamark Ink Pad. I sprinkled on one of the embossing powders, heat set it, and repeated it as I filled the card with multiple clovers in the four different green embossing powders. I continued this until I had filled the space enough. After this was done, I dotted little adhesive dots using the Nuvo Glue Pen Fine Tip. I let the glue get tacky, then added Silver Bullion Gilding Flakes. I pressed the flakes into the adhesive, then dusted away the left over gilding flakes using the Mini Blender Brush.

I die cut four hearts and arranged them into a four-leaf clover shape as the background of my card. I layered everything together, and had a uniquely shaped, clover card with a wonderful sentiment! This card was really fun to make and I love how it came together.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!

  1. Fun little creation using just the clover part of the set Chris. The sentiment looks great in the Gilding Flakes.

  2. Beautifully created Chris with lots of pretty 'sparkle' and I love the shape (I have a shamrock card coming soon, too)!
