St. Patty's Day Card | SSS Wooly Lucky stamp set
Updated: Sep 13, 2020
Hello everyone and thank you for stopping by for a new card! With St. Patty's day happening tomorrow I wanted to make a themed card and I've had Simon says stamp's Wooly Luck stamp set sitting on my desk for a little while. I got it in a kit last year and haven't used it yet. It was PERFECT for this card. Let's jump in!!
I like to precut my card stock, I am using an A2 card base which is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" then I cut my black piece to 4" x 5 1/4" and my Lawn fawn really rainbow panel (which is the green piece) to 3 7/8" x 5 1/8". I wanted to add a bit more colour to my pattern paper so I took Mowed lawn and Lucky clover distress oxide inks and created an ombre with the original green of the pattern paper showing through in the middle.
Next, I took a piece of my 100lb hammermill paper and stamped out the llama image from the Wooly Luck stamp set in Simon says stamps intense black ink, which is a Copic friendly ink, as we will be Copic colouring today. I used YG03, YG23, and YG25 for the green parts on the blanket, bow, and hat. I used C3, C5, and C7 for the hat and interior part of the blanket then used C9 for the fringe around the blanket, the buckle on the hat, and the hooves. Finally, I used E53, E33, and E35 for the fur on our Llama.
When I Copic colour I like to start with a full wash of my lightest colour, then go in with my mid-tone and finish with my darkest colour, I am not the best at shading but I am working on getting better at it. I tend to ignore a light source as I work on my skills with shading.
I then used my Tim Holtz mini snips to fussy cut out the llama and added Gina K foam squares to all the things, the llama, the black panel and my sentiment after I used my mini Misti to stamp it out in SSS embossing ink, covered it in Alabaster white embossing powder from Brutus Monroe and heat set it. I then took my Mini Misti and stamped the llama inside of the card base with the Luck clover Distress oxide ink just to spice it up a little.
All that was left was to assemble everything. I did use liquid glue to attach my green panel to the black piece, However, I would suggest you don't do that... because that paper is a bit thinner the glue showed through some of the inking. I don't mind it as its very hard to tell but I do wish I had used tape runner or double-sided tape instead. I removed the release backing from all the foam squares, used a
T-square ruler to make sure my sentiment was straight and placed my llama above that so it would help ground the llama, then attached my panel to my card base.
You could absolutely stop there, but I love all things shiny so I needed to add some sequins and remembered I had some clover sequins from Buttons Galore and more in my stash, I also added a couple of green gems from the Pink fresh studio's jewel mix essentials.

Thank you SO much for stopping by and I will see you next Monday for another card video.
