Lucky Leprechaun Card

This was one of the cards we made at last month's S.O.T.T.S. Club. It's the happy Leprechaun from the set Pinch Proof.

St. Patty's Clover Pinwheel

This is a 5-1/4" x 5-1/4" square card, which fits the Scallop Circle Die perfectly. I used the *NEW* Circle Scissor Plus to cut the 3-3/4", 3-1/2", 3-1/4" circles. It is so easy to use and another fun way to layer your cards.

The Leprechaun is stamped in Versamark Ink and then in Garden Green Ink, then covered with Clear Embossing Powder and set with the Heat Tool. If you have Garden Green Craft Ink, you can omit using the Versamark Ink. The Pinch Proof Scallop image was inked the same way, and then punched with the 1-3/8" Circle Punch. I used markers to color in the images. Here is a close-up.

For the Kiwi Kiss color around the Pinch Proof and on the Leprechaun's jacket I used my Classic Kiwi Kiss Stamp Pad and with it closed, I squeezed it together to get ink on the top cover. Then I took a Blender Pen to transfer the color. That's one of the best techniques to use the In Color Stamp Pads as markers...until ©Stampin' Up! realizes we want them to start making In Color markers.
