Good morning! I was so happy when I found out the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set had been carried over to the 2018 Annual Catalog! I just simply enjoyed transforming the Santa into a leprechaun! Last years card I improvised my hat by using a stamp from Mixed Drinks. If you want to see that card, you can find it here: Happy St Patrick’s Day Card 2018.
Sadly, as a beer drinking family, I was disappointed to see the Mixed Drinks set retire. But then I was over the moon happy with the new stamp set Best Bunny! It has a TOP HAT, what?! Not only can this set make magical cards, it can also be used as a Snowman Hat AND my Happy Leprechaun has a new hat this year as well!
Since this will most likely be the only St Patrick’s Day card I make for 2019, I knew I had to make it a good one! I used the Buffalo Check Background stamp, but rather than make a card front (which is my usual way of using this stamp, because I can trim it if I go crooked) I decided to try my hand at stamping directly on my card base. Nerve-wrecking you say? Not at all, because I have a quick tip on how I used this stamp with my Stamperatus and was able to make not just one, but SIX of these cards and every single cardfront is stamped identically! Want to see how I accomplished that? Well, I made a very short video you can watch here: Tips & Tricks
I hope my little leprechaun made you smile, and that my video was helpful. Please consider subscribing to my YouTube Channel. I only make videos when I feel that the content will be useful for my viewers. That’s all I have for you today, have a wonderful day!
