For my project, I created a St. Patrick's Day kissing ball...better to be kissed then pinched, right?
- Cricut digital cartridge St. Patrick's Day
- Cricut cartridge Hannah Montana
- My Pink Stamper From the Heart stamp set
- Moss covered sphere
- Core'dinations cardstock
- Stampin' Up! cardstock in Early Espresso, More Mustard, Garden Green, Naturals Ivory and Whisper White
- Stampin' Up! Early Espresso classic ink
- Stampin' Up! Square Lattice embossing folder
- Stampin' Up! 1 1/4" grosgrain ribbon in Old Olive and Early Espresso
- Stampin' Up! Kiwi Kiss corduroy buttons
- Stampin' Up! gold cord
- Ranger distress ink in Crushed Olive and Antique Linen
- Gold Smooch Spritz
- Jewelry Fundamentals in Antique Brass
- Seed beads in green and gold
- Tiger eye chips
- Hot glue gun/glue
Once they were adhered, I added the lighter color shamrocks. Next, I sprayed the ball with gold Smooch Spritz and added my ribbons. For my bow, I first wrapped the ball with the Old Olive ribbon and added a sewed hook made from the Early Espresso ribbon before tying the bow.
Once tied, I added a button to each side of the hook and tied them on with gold stretch cord. I glued down the middle of each side of the bow for added interest.
I cut the bannered sentiment from the digital Cricut cartridge St. Patrick's Day twice. Once, leaving all the layers as is and again, using the hide/contour feature in the Cricut Craft Room to hide the sentiments and clover so that I could add lips (from Hannah Montana Cricut cartridge) and the sentiment SWAK from My Pink Stamper's From the Heart stamp set. Once the image was cut and adhered, I added gold Smooch Spritz to it as well.
I added seed beads and Tiger eye chips to the jewelry fundamental and added it to the bottom of the ball using hot glue. Lastly, I added a jump ring to a 1/8" punched hole in my image and added it to the kissing ball. Now I am all ready to be KISSED! ;)
