Love Lives Here -Shamrock Card

Hello again, here is my second card for today it features two lovely stamps 
I'm entering this card in to three challenges, colorQ challenge #231,


 I like how the black and green pop against the white base.

Detail of my DIY Embossing. 
To do this I used the Oval Scallop Frame Bigz Die and 
Big Shot to cut a mask out of Chipboard. 
Next I attached  the mask with repositionable tape to the inside front of my card stock base. 
Placing my embossing mat on top of the card stock and running through my Big Shot 
as I would any other Embossing folder.
(Warning, when experimenting go slow and never force anything or you will damage your Big Shot.)

I just love finding new uses for my craft supplies and tools.

Supplies Used;
Stamps -Quietfire design (Flourished inside -hearts, Love Lives Here
Inks and Markers -Stampin Up! (Garden Green), Ranger ( AI Jet Black, Perfect Medium)
Dies -Sizzix (Oval Scallop Frame, Primitive Hearts, Circle #2)
Pens -Sakura (Black Fine liner and Black Glitter Pen)
3L -Black Photo Corners(trimmed to size)
Misc. 5x7 Card Blank, Pearls

See you next time around!
