At Rainbow's End

Happy Friday stampers!

I know it's kind of late to be sharing St. Patrick's Day ideas with you, but since I'd designed them last month for my Stampin' Fools, I thought I should at least pass them on!

Besides, you might have these supplies laying around just begging to be used!
First, here's the card:

I used Wild Wasabi for my 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" square card base. It's layered with a piece of 4 1/8" x 4 1/8" piece of Basic Black cardstock and the top layer is Glossy cardstock cut at 4" square.

I used the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set with Wild Wasabi and Lucky Limeade ink to stamp the grassy border along the base. I love that the classic ink AND markers dry on contact with Glossy cardstock. It's so easy to use!

The rainbow was so simple - I used these five Stampin' Write markers: Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight and Real Red. I used the side of the brush tip and just stroked a "swoosh" of color in an arc pattern from where the pot of gold would be to the card's top edge. Once that was done, I used my 2 Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to add the bling!

Next, I constructed my pot of gold:

For the pot, I used the 1 3/4" Circle Punch and trimmed off the top to be flat. I punched two pieces with the Word Window punch. One was glued across the top of the "pot" and the other was cut in half and adhered to the back of the "pot" to make the feet. I used my White Signo Gel Pen to draw a couple of accents on the pot, but of course, it needed one last thing - GOLD!
So I took my Circle punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and punched out a bunch of gold pieces from a scrap of Brushed Gold cardstock. They were layered on another piece of Brushed Gold cardstock that was punched out with the Scallop Circle Punch.
The whole pot was popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals on the card front.
Here's the inside panel:

Just simply stamped with the Happy St. Patrick's Day A La Carte stamp from the Occasions Mini. Cute and easy!

Next, here's an easy treat you can make up for the little leprechauns in your life:

I used the Small Cello Bags and filled them with Lucky Charms Breakfast Cereal and a Gold covered Chocolate coin. The topper was made with some Rainbow striped DSP from the Just Add Cake package. I cut out a top note shape and simply folded it over the top of the bag and closed it with SNAIL adhesive.
The medallion was made in My Digital Studio and I printed out multiples on a sheet of Whisper White cardstock. Each was punched out with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch and layered on a piece of Wild Wasabi that was punched out with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch. A little Dazzling Diamonds glitter was added and I attached it to the treat bag with some Stampin' Dimensionals.

So, there you have it, nothing too hard, pretty generic supplies and you can whip up these fun treats in no time. But here's a warning - it's hard to not eat the Lucky Charms cereal once you've opened the box. Just sayin'.

Have a fun St. Patrick's Day tomorrow!
If you live in my area, stop by the Bristow Chick-Fil-A on Rt. 28 by the Super Target. From 11am - 2 pm, I'm participating in a fundraiser for the St. Baldricks's Association. It's an organization that raises money to find a cure for children's cancers.
There will be lots of opportunities to donate at the event tomorrow - a portion of your food purchase goes back to St. Baldricks, there are items available for a Silent Auction and I'll have a card table set up where you can donate any amount over $1.00 and make a card to send to a kid with cancer at St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. When you donate and make a card, you'll get a coupon for a FREE Mini Card Class from me as a Thank YOU for participating!
Hope to see you there!
