Good Morning Ladies!
Well it is Tuesday and I have my Hand Stamped Sentiments entry for this week. Our challenge this week is a theme – Go for the Green St. Patrick’s day projects.
This was definitely a challenge for me as I don't have any St. Patrick's Day stamps. Knowing that I pulled out my catalog and went looking for ways to make a shamrock. Some turned out cute and some were not. I am sharing all of them with you so you can see we all have days when things just don't go right.
This week I had a card/box set. I pulled out an old pattern for a card box that is super simple. Here is my box with the cards inside.
Here is a picture of my box with the cards.
Here is my first card. To create the shamrock I used the Build a Blossom set. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the placement of the flower petals.

My second card used the small butterfly from Flight of the Butterfly. I inked up one of the wings with a marker and stamps it. I again used my stamp-a-ma-jig.

The last card to show you uses the build a blossom big flower petal. I stamped it then punched it out with the punch. After that I cut the top off to resemble the leaf of the shamrock. I forgot to decorate the inside of this one so I don't have one to show you. I'm not happy with this one and think I should have used 4 leaves instead of 3. What are your thoughts?
I hope you enjoyed my box set today. Thanks for looking and have a Terrific Tuesday!
