So I went looking for inspiration on the pencil eraser stamping technique (basically use the eraser as your stamp pad to make circles) and saw this card I really liked (I adore you) http://sweetpapertreats.com/2014/06/03/watercolor-for-card-makers-day-4/

So then I decided to do the color scheme at the Feb Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com which is the colors above except for gold it should be silver. But had to have gold on a St. Patty’s Card!! I did cut out the shamrock and had the negative space like on the inspiration but didn’t like it as much as just pop dotting a shamrock on the white piece. I don’t do cut outs well!!

So I decided to make another card with the Pencil Eraser Stamping technique based off this card: http://stampandembellish.com/2015/08/build-a-birthday-fun-cards/

I stamped on textured cardstock so it gave it a different look. Now let me tell you I’m not a stamper so after trying to stamp a saying and that not working… I thought the saying needed to be heat embossed. Well I couldn’t find my stamp buddy to keep the powder from getting on other parts of the card so I went back to my trusty computer!! I stamped with pencil erasers and the big ones are daubers….now to find a mini and medium dot. (I tried q-tips but unless they were tight they didn’t work right).
