My friend, Joanne (Sleepyinseattle), challenged the Doubledog Dare Challenge members to make a St. Patrick's Day card.  I chose this cute frog image by Rubbernecker and colored him with Copic markers. To make my shamrocks, I used Stampin' Up's trio heart punch and hand cut the stems.


We'd love it if you joined us in our challenge.  Just make a St. Patrick's Day themed card and put DDC in your keywords when uploading to Splitcoaststampers.  You can also see the cards my friends made by doing a search on this keyword or clicking on their names in my sidebar.

I made my next card in honor of the featured stamper, angelladcrockett, on Splitcoast.  I loved her cute ladybug card.



This fun olive image is part of a stamp set from Rubbernecker called Garnish set (there's also a cherry, a lemon, and a lime in the set). I thought it'd be fun to use as a case of Angella's cute ladybug card. To create my "Olive You" sentiment, I highlighted with Olive and You with a black marker and used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line them up. The two words are also from Rubbernecker but the word "Olive" is from their Olive Jar stamp and the word "you" is from their A Star is Born Set.
My olives were colored with Copic markers (G94, G99, YG06, and R29). The olive under the top ribbon was cut out and popped up on a dimensional.
Wouldn't this be a fun card to put in your child's or spouse's lunch bag as a surprise?
