More cards with the Papertrey Ink For the Graduate set today. Love the idea of the flying graduation cap so I made a couple of simple grads cards using that idea. The "Happy Graduation" stamp is from Hero Arts.

I really need to put the graduation sets aside and figure out a Mother's Day card for my Mom. :)
Thanks for stopping by. Happy Stamping!

Graduation time

Graduation time is just around the corner so I thought I'd better start making some cards. I'm having a great time with the new Papertrey Ink graduation set For the Graduate. For this card I used some digital papers and lace and created my own flower with my scalloped circle punch. To create the flower I punch 3 scalloped circles out of grey cardstock then ran them through my crimper repeatedly, next I crumpled them up until the fibers started to break down. Once that happens you can pull them apart creating two layers from each piece. So I layered the 6 pieces together and placed a small green prima flower on the top of the stack and held it all together with a green gem brad. I attached it to the card with a dimensional glue dot.
Thanks so much for stopping. Happy Stamping!

Savitri Wilder Inspired

I love this card that Savitri Wilder posted on her blog and decided to try and recreate it with supplies that I had on hand. To create the background I stamped one of the circle stamps from the Hero Arts Monogram Alphabet set in SU pixie pink on PTI Kraft cardstock. The outline label stamp is from the Doodlebug Designs Tags set and the birthday wishes is from PTI's Faux Ribbon set. I pulled some old lace out of my stash and tied it in a bow then tied the tag onto the bow and attached it to the card with a glue dot. The flower is 3 blossoms from a silk flower held together with a bright yellow brad and attached to the card with a glue dot. I also cut two leaf shapes from felt and attached those to the back of the flower petals with scor-tape.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you're having a wonderful week! Happy Stamping.
