Valentine's Day & St. Patrick's Day in GREEN

Hi Crafty Friends,
I got in a GREEN mood when creating cards using the NEW C.C Designs February Release Stamp set called February & March. There are CUTE little icons for EVERY Holiday in February & March. I'm Irish and an identical twin so I LOVE the little peas (reminds me of me and my sister) and the St. Patrick's Day pigs.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What is your favorite February or March Holiday?
A: Me? St. Patrick's Day! My brother lives in Dublin, Ireleand.

Card #1: Green Valentine
I used Distress Oxide Ink to create the background and splattered it with Copic Opaque White, Water and some shimmer. Then I used Kindred Stamps Green Glitter Gel with my Newton's Nook Tumbling Hearts Stencil over top the ink.


I added glossy accents to the peas to make them pop. And I used metallic green paper for the framing so it shines!




Card #2: St. Patrick's Day Card

  4. The pig is really cute! I love piggies. My favorite holiday in Feb/March used to be Pinching Day. But as an adult it is frowned upkn😆

  5. These cards are just adorable and I am loving that sweet little piggie! My favorite holiday is probably Valentine's day because I can buy chocolate at discount the day afterwards, haha!

  6. Wow!! Love green! The first card is really sparkling and shining, who could resist? I surely can't :D LOL Love the look of the glitter gel on the hearts and those peas are too much cute!!! :D Great design!
    The second card is adorable too, that piggy peeking out from the shamrock makes me smile, the sequins look so festive and love very much the design papers you used, such perfect match!

  7. Love your happy St. Patty's Day cards especially the two peas with the glitter gel. Love the sentiment. Cute little pig as well. I'm a big fan of St. Patrick's Day as I am Irish too even though my married last name is German now.

  14. Cute green cards. In February I like Groundhog's day and Valentine's day because two of my grandchildren are born on those days and in March I like Pi day because--you guessed it--another grandchild was born on March 14.
