25 Days of Christmas at Cooking With Cricut: Day 6

We're dancing an Irish jig and kissing the Blarney Stone at CookingWithCricut.com and PaperCraftingWorld.com today.  We're taking a break from Christmas and looking a few months into the future with projects celebrating the month of March!

I created a sign featuring an Irish Blessing with a sneaky little leprechaun.

 

Here's the recipe:
  • Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut cartridge:  Leprechaun cut at 7 1/2" tall. 
  • Emerald Green and Gold Stickles used on the hat and shoes.
  • Evergreen ColorBox pigment ink used to shade the leprechaun's suit and hat.
  • EK Success chalk used to shade the beard and hair.
  • All paper came from my paper stash and is either Bazzill or Recollections card stock.
  • The patterned paper and saying were printed from my computer.  The digital paper was a free download from FreeDigitalScrapbooking.com.
  • My little leprechaun's face is hand drawn -- I don't own any of those cute little "Peachy Keen" face stamps (but they're definitely on my wish list!) -- using my Zig Writers and a white Gelly Roll gel pen.

I also made a mini-banner using the Paper Doll Dress Up and "Just Because" Cards Cricut cartridges.


Here's the recipe:
  • Paper Doll Dress Up:  Shamrocks cut at 3" tall.
  • "Just Because" Cards:  Green pennants cut at 5 1/4" tall and the white mats are cut at 4 1/2" tall. 
  • The green card stock is by Recollections and the white is just a plain card stock purchased at the office supply store.
  • Evergreen ColorBox pigment ink was used to shade the green pennants.
  • The center panel greeting was printed from my computer.
  • Emerald green self-adhesive rhinestones in two sizes also decorate the center panel.
  • I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch holes in the corners and set my gold-toned eyelets.
  • 3/8" white satin ribbon tie the pennants together.

Like the St. Patrick's Day Card. Your hand drawing of the face features is wonderful. My daughter is more the artist in my family when it comes to portraits and does a wonderful job with faces like on the Johnny Depp portrait I have posted on my blog sidebar. May the Luck of the Irish BEE with you.
