Lucky Me – I Can Count on You

Got off to a late start today.  Errands…they needed to get done.  So, I am now back in my happy place.

Several challenges are gearing up for St. Pat’s Day…best to get them done before the 17th!

Sketch with Animal option: Try Stampin’ On Tuesday (#545), Colors and Inspiration: Double Trouble (#105), Heart 2 Heart (March), The Card Concept (#170) and Inspiration Station (#25) for a sweet little clean and simple card.

Here is the result:


  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Garden Green cardstock.
  • Card Front: (4” x 5¼”) Basic White cardstock.
    • Balmy Blue ink was added to the center position with a Blending Brush for a bit of sky to work as a backdrop for the focal image.
    • The sentiment, lucky me, from the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set was stamped with Garden Green ink.
    • A little hand-drawn Clover was added with the Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.
    • The panel was then dry-embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Flag: (3¼” x 2”) Basic White cardstock die-cut with that sized die from the Stitched Triangles Dies set.
    • The Plaid Pattern was drawn in/on with a Ruler with the So Saffron, Old Olive and retired Wild Wasabi (standing in for Pear Pizzazz) Stampin’ Blends and the Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.
  • Focal Image – Penguin: (1½” x 3”) Basic White cardstock scrap.
    • The little Penguin and his Balloon, from the Count on Me stamp set was stamped with Early Espresso ink.
    • Two additional Balloons were hand-drawn with the Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker.
    • Three little Clovers were hand-drawn on to the Balloons and colored with the Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.
    • The image was then colored: Penguin Beak, Penguin Feet and Balloons – So Saffron Stampin’ Blend; Penguin Body – Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker.
    • The image was then Fussy Cut with Paper Snips.

The Plaid Flag was adhered to the Card Front which was adhered to the card base.  The Penguin and his Balloons was popped up with Dimensionals completing the card.

Lucky me, that I have you!

  1. Jolanda, super cute St Patrick’s Day card! You not only used our Try Stampin’ on Tuesday sketch with the optional penguin for the animal, but you also used a green card base and green plaid that Double Trouble was looking for in our “Bring on the Green” challenge! Love how you highlighted the penguin with just a touch of blue sky on the embossed background! Thank you for joining us at both TSOT and Double Trouble!!! -Donna


  2. That embossing folder has so much texture and created a clean and simple card with the bit of plaid and the penguin hangin tightly on to the balloons… adorable and fun card. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and Heart2Heart.
