Happy St. Patrick's Day



Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Hello My Stamper Friends; HERE Bibiana....
Today I am bringing to you, to commemorate the death of this Christian saint and the arrival of Christianity to Ireland this card made in green, which is the traditional color for this day!

I embellished the card of course with some shamrock leaves, symbol of Ireland and believed to be the symbol that St. Patrick used to teach the Holy Trinity to the Irish people...


I used two main stamps from  of the many and so fabulous "vintage" stamps from "Lost Coast Designs".

The sentiment (embossed in silver EP*) comes in a set of stamps Called "Labels Set", which depicts the "Belle époque" period (AKA in the USA as the  "Gilded age"), which occurred in France and Belgium in the middle of the 19th and begenning of the 20th century...
and "Art Nouveau" is the most popularly recognized art movement to emerge from THIS period.



The second image, the focal point of the card, uses a stamp from a set called "Hat Ladies", which is the reproduction of hats wore during the "Victorian era" , which was the period of Queen Victoria's reign from 1837 until her death, on 1901.

Even though this 2 sets represent different eras in History, The "Victorian era" and the "Belle époque" ...these 2 periods in history overlap a little so I thought that they could go along very well in my card.... 


I added a "bouquet" of Clovers wrapped in a silver paper doily, and sprinkle the card with silver glitter here and there...

If you happen to be in one of the rubber stamps conventions in the USA or abroad, do not forget to stop to the "Lost Coast booth"
I am sure  you will find something of your liking, their stamps are  unique reproductions of eras and various styles in Art...

Next stop is in April in the Netherlands!!!
