Create an “Irish for a Day” Card for St Patrick’s Day

by Jowilna Nolte

Create an "Irish for a Day" Card for St Patrick's Day using Tsukineko's VersaMagic and Brilliance DewDrops.

Are you feeling lucky? At least for a day you can be Irish and take your inspiration from the many shades of greens available in the Tsukineko and Imagine stable. Today’s card features some of my favorite greens for an interesting and less grass green version of this famous holiday. Take a look at how I created this fun effect.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 1 hour


Step 1

On a large background stamp using VersaMagic in Aloe Vera, apply the ink in a tapping motion across certain sections over the stamp only.

Step 2

Add a second green ink over the remainder of the ink surface. I used Brilliance in Pearlescent Thyme to add some sparkle and shimmer.

Step 3

Carefully lay the cardstock piece onto the surface of the stamp and apply pressure by rubbing your palm over the surface. This is a lot easier to transfer the image onto the cardstock due to the nature of this stamp size and design. Remove to reveal the image.

Step 4

Use a small soft paint brush and All-Purpose Ink in Spring Green to add green paint splats. Add additional Walnut Ink splats onto the background as well.

Step 5

Cut out flowers and a cloverleaf from patterned paper and adhere to the stamped panel. Add a typed sentiment over the stem of the cloverleaf. Ad diamanté to finish off the card. Sew around the edges for texture and detail.
