Happy Graduation! A Class Project

Good Morning,

Before I start packing this morning I wanted to share this graduation card we made in my workshop this weekend. It was a lot of fun. I have a great group of ladies who are ready and willing to try new things and we laughed, learned and played the day away.
Stamped on the inside.

 I took inspiration for this card from a couple of Graduation Cards on Pinterest. The location of the Happy Graduation Label on the numbers came from a card made by Stesha Bloodhart, and the way too cute Cap from a YouTube video (sorry I forget the name for this one).

I knew that I wanted to use my new Stamperatus to demonstrate what a great tool it is and to show them how easy it is to use. The Amazing Congratulations stamp set definitely showed them just how valuable a tool it can be.

Yes, I did make the little Tassel from our Silver Metallic Thread. The school colors were Black, Silver and Maroon. When I finished all of the card elements I realized I needed another touch of silver. Embossing the stars with Stampin' Silver Emboss powder did the trick. I left it looking just a little grungy as this card was designed for a young man graduating from high school.

I am headed for Vegas at the end of this week to attend Stampin' Ups OnStage Event. I will be gone for a little over 2 weeks as I am combining a trip to one of our families home in Mexico as well. When I come back I can begin sharing some of the new products coming in June.
I am So Excited about that!!

March 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop: Birthdays

Welcome to the March 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop! I’m so excited to be part of this fun collaboration with fellow demonstrators. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along. This month’s theme is BirthdaysI can’t wait to show you my project!

The Perennial Birthday Stamp Set is my second favorite set from the Occasions Catalog. I love flowers of just  about any kind. I stamped all of the images in Momento's Tuxedo Black and fussy cut a bunch of them out. I just started putting them together in different configurations until I got one that I liked. I covered it all up with some Glad Press & Seal. That will keep it all together until I start my assembly. 

My Card Base is Bermuda Bay - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".
The Card Front is Whisper White - 4" x 5 1/4",  embossed with the Petal Burst TIEF.
The Card Front Mat is Pool Party - 2 3/4" x 3 5/8", stamped with Pool Party Ink (using the largest floral image).
The Sentiment Strip is Bermuda Bay - 1 1/4" x 4 1/4", Stamp the sentiment with Tuxedo Black. Tie some Bermuda Bay 1/8" Shimmer Ribbon (FREE Sale-A-Bration item) around this piece.
I colored the flowers with Stampin' Blends, Pool party light & dark and Bermuda Bay light & dark.
The Inside Layer is Whisper White - 4" x 5 1/4". Stamp the sentiment with Tuxedo Black. Stamp the largest floral image with Pool party ink, stamping off once.
Assemble the card with your preferred adhesives.
I popped up the smallest flowers with Mini Dimensionals.

If you would like to earn this beautiful pack of Shimmer Ribbon all you have to do is make a $50.00 purchase in my online store and it can be yours FREE.

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop #19 - Color Challenge

Welcome to the 19th GSF Blog Hop. This month we are all working with a Color Challenge. The colors that were chosen are Island Indigo,  Lemon Lime Twist & Early Espresso.

Now I have to confess something. Color Challenges cause me to run in terror. I sit there staring at my Stamp Pads (in the chosen colors) and just freeze up. I like to work with a stamp set. So for me this was like going backwards.

I remembered seeing, somewhere, Pinterest probably, Lemon Lime Twist embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. So, I told myself to start there. Which way, which way? I had other things in mind for the Petal Palette set, so that one was out.

Then I thought about my favorite set from the Annual Catalog, Dragonfly Dreams. So I started playing. I stamped the wings stamp using a sponge dauber in Lemon Lime Twist and Island Indigo. The body of the dragonfly became the Dragonfly Die cut. Then I staggered a couple of Stitched Shape Squares under the Dragonfly. I used the Banner Die from the Petals & More Thinlits to cut out my sentiment. On the Inside layer I used the dotted stamp along the bottom of the layer in Lemon Lime Twist & Island Indigo. I stamped the sentiment from Beautiful Day in Island Indigo.
