It's a Spring Fling

It's time for Sparkle n Sprinkle's Spring Fling blog hop and I have been busy little bee!!  If you stopped by from Charlene's Paper and Ink Playground then you are hopping down the bunny trail in order. If you would like to start from the beginning then head back to the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog to see how to get entered in for FIVE fun prizes.

I created two projects to share to the 'Luck of the Irish' this St Patrick's Day, the first is a vintage style paper mache box.  One of my favorite tips for creating an object that looks vintage is to use flocking. Lucky for me Sparkle N Sprinkle has such a great selection of colors to choose from.  It was super simple to create the look I was after on this box with 1/2" Tear-ific Tape. It created perfect straight lines and is super sticky so the flocking is sure to stay put.  The image I used is reprinted from a vintage St Patrick's day greeting card, just do a Google search and you are sure to come with some great choices to save and use for your future projects.

Now, because I don't want you to get pinched...I wanted to share these looped barrettes.  They are a perfect way to be wear'n the green this St Patrick's Day, they even have a little glitter sparkle in the embossed clover...perfect to catch the wandering eye of leprechaun.  If you catch him you can try to get his pot of gold.

Here is a quick list/links of the products I used:
Leprechaun Stamp Set
Palm Leaf Flocking
Golden Silver Glitter
Pear Embossing Powder
Irish Spring Embossing Powder

It is time to hop on down the blog path to the next destination, but before you go be sure to leave a comment... you never know which designer's blog will have goodies to giveaway.
