Introducing Lucky Shamrock and Lucky Shamrock: Celtic Knot Details

Good morning and welcome back for the second day of our Spring release introductions! I'm so glad you're all as excited as we are for everything debuting on Saturday (2/17) at Noon EST.

I want to remind you that I will be going live on Instagram this evening at 8pm EST to answer any questions you have about today's new products.

We've had several requests for St. Patrick's Day themed dies and I'm hoping today's introductions will fit the bill!

Celebrate St. Paddy’s Day in verdant style with the Lucky Shamrock Die (retails for $24)!


This die includes two shamrock shapes, one large standalone die and a smaller aperture version that can be added to your favorite basic shapes.

We're also introducing the Lucky Shamrock: Celtic Knot Details Die (retails for $20 - coordinates with the Lucky Shamrock Die which retails separately for $24). 

Give your Lucky Shamrock a bit of Celtic flair with this Details die. The Lucky Shamrock: Celtic Knot Details Die includes both a “holes only” option as well as a layer option to give your projects variety.

Now that I've made the introductions, let's see what the Guest Creators have to share with you!

Lori's decorative bowl fillers are so perfectly festive! The subtle nod to the holiday is a wonderful way to celebrate without overwhelming your space.

Would you just look at Mary's charming wreath! Can you think of anything more cheerful for celebrating the St. Patrick's Day holiday?

I've also been playing with these new dies and I'm so excited to share with you!

I've decided that I've reached peak decor age (the age at which decorating for every and all holidays is highly encouraged) and that means I'm planning to put up a Spring tree to celebrate all of the spring holidays. These shamrocks will be a wonderful addition to the tree!

The aperture shamrock fits on a wide variety of our basic shapes. I used the Keepsake Ornaments II kit with the Classic Yuletide Color Story to create these ornaments. I really like the green and white with a touch of gold color palette.

As always, there's a monogrammed ornament for Tilly. I used one of the decorative swirls from the Lucky Shamrock Die and a sequin to fancy things up a bit.

I used a strand of metallic thread along with two strands of dark green thread to complete the stitching on this shamrock. It adds just a hint of sparkle that ties in nicely to the Midas Touch accents. I also cut a small heart using the Love Potion Details Die to dress up the shamrock.

By the way, depending on the project and how much it's going to be handled, you may want to secure those points (along the stem, especially) with dots of felt glue or hot glue. It's not necessary (I didn't bother), but it may be a preference for some people and I just wanted to be totally upfront about that.

I felt like wasting the negative on that last ornament would be a shame, so I used it to embellish this next ornament. I really like to use as many of the little extra bits and pieces as possible. Similar to the points on the aperture, the stem wiggles around a bit since it's fairly dainty, so you could use a dot of felt glue to secure it if you wanted to make it a little more stable.

I used the little decorative teardrop trio element to add a pop of light green to this ornament. I centered the shamrock between those details and stitched it on with another heart and a sequin.

Since this is the first year I've made St. Patrick's Day ornaments I wanted to note the year with the Keepsake Dates Die.

I also wanted to make ornaments using the large shamrock shapes.

I've never really made St. Patrick's Day decorations before, but these were such fun!

This ornament features the decorative embroidered elements found in the Lucky Shamrock Die. I also used a heart, cut (again) using the Love Potion Details Die. I embellished with gold beads that coordinate so nicely with the Midas Touch felt.

The second ornament shows the Lucky Shamrock: Celtic Knot Details Die design. You can opt for the "holes only" design to create an embroidered look or use the optional layer as I have here. It's also a bit difficult to tell in the photos, but I used one strand of metallic thread along with two strands of standard cotton thread to add a hind of gold to the knot stitching. I love the subtle sparkle!

These ornaments are so cheerful and a wonderful addition to my holiday decor! I am so excited to get them hung up. The pop of green is such a joy these wintery days (when everything in Ohio is a little bit drab).

I hope you've enjoyed today's introductions and I hope you'll stop by tomorrow to see what else we have in store! It's a big day and I'm positive that there are a few things you won't want to miss!

I want to remind you that I will be going live on Instagram this evening at 8pm EST to answer any questions you have about today's new products.
