Hi Friends and Happy Tuesday! It’s time for Green & Gold with Taylored Expressions St. Patrick’s Day Release! I’m a wee-bit Irish so I definitely love all things St. Patrick’s Day and oh my goodness…ALL THE RAINBOWS! If you know me, I love to rainbow everything so this is definitely a favorite cardmaking holiday for me! 🙂 I couldn’t stop creating with this release. I have several cards to share with you today and can’t wait to show you all my creations.
You’re My Pot o’ Gold
For my Rainbow’s End trio of cards, I started by die cutting several rainbow beams in Lollipop, Candy Corn, Pineapple and Cookie Monster card stock and the Pot O’ Gold from Licorice and Gold Foil cardstock.
For my first card, I arranged the beams in rainbow order to the top of a stitched rectangle panel. Using a foam square I attached the Pot O’ Gold to the center of the rainbow with two shamrock cloud die cuts. It’s hard to see in the picture but I also added a bit of glitter & shine to the pot with black glitter cardstock which I also added as star embellishments surrounding the rainbow. For the sentiment, I gold embossed the St. Patrick’s Day Sentiment from the Shake Your Shamrock Stamp Set and the You’re My Pot O’ Gold! Mini Strip. To finish the card, I added the decorated panel to a Jade Foiled Luck of the Irish Foil-It Panel.
For my second card, I used the remaining rainbow beams to create a trio of interconnected rainbows that I adhered to a rectangle stitched mini slim panel. For the rainbow centers, I added two gold foil Little Bits-Shamrocks with a gold embellishment center and gold heat embossed Lucky to have you as a Friend sentiment from the Shake Your Shamrock Stamp Set & Coordinating dies. To finish the card, I added the decorated panel to a scalloped frame and Blueberry card base.
For my third card, I foiled one of the rainbow Luck of the Irish Panels in Rainbow Shattered Foil, cut out the rainbow beam from the panel and adhered it to a white mini slim card panel. I ink blended the rainbow across the foiled panel and white mini slim card panel using TE Blending Brushes and Fruit Punch, Lollipop, Pineapple, Key Lime and Cookie Monster inks. At the end of the rainbow I added a Pot of Gold and the Have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day is a combination of building block sentiments and a St. Patrick’s Day Mini Strip. For a little extra shine, I finished the card with a Gold Foil mini slim thin border.

Let The Shenanigans Begin!
Oh, My Gnomes! I seriously cannot get over how cute the Gnomes look all dressed up as Leprechauns using the Lucky Leprechauns Dress-Up Die Set. For my cutie, I used an assortment Cardstock in Poblano Pepper, Licorice, Gold Foil, Peaches n’ Cream, Key Lime and Green and Orange Glitter Card stock. I just love the green glitter foam on the green beer 🙂 For the green coat, I colored a white piece of cardstock with dark green Copic Markers.
To create the background, I ink blended Granny Smith, Cilantro and Poblano Pepper to white card panel. Then using a MISTI, I stamped the Luck of the Irish Background Stamp with Poblano Pepper Ink on top of the green ombré ink-blended panel. All of the layers (Luck of the Irish Ink-blended background, Vellum & Sugar Cube) were die cut using the A2 Layer Stacklets. To finish the card, I stacked all the layers together added a few Bits & Pieces Lucky Stars and a White & Poblano Pepper embossed sentiment.
