Unity {Inspiration}

Welcome to this week's 
Unity Hop of Inspiration
Here's a list of the hop:
Erin (Guest Designer)
THIS WEEK'S UNITY SPECIAL

This week I decided to work with the new and amazing wood-block stamps
for St. Patrick's Day!  Growing up, St. Patty's Day wasn't that big of a deal, but it seems
that more and more people are celebrating the occasion...after all, it's the one day that 
everyone can be Irish!

I stamped the image, Lucky Friend, twice: onto green and white cardstocks.  
I glittered the entire shamrock using a Ballpoint-Tip Glue Pen by Martha Stewart and
green metallic glitter by Doodlebug.  Also by Doodlebug Designs are the Hello Spring
patterned papers, Sugar Plum Boutique Brad and Fancy Frills Lilac Border Stickers.
I just LOVE the lilac and shamrock-y green together!

So many possibilities with this next stamp, Happy St. Patty's...I went with little wineglass markers 
layered in bright colors of green and yellow.  A round punch made it easy to remove the
center of the image from the rest and then I layered with foam dots.
With the size of the stamp, you could also use a round scallop punch to cut out the actual image.

Enjoy the inspiration!
