Graduation Card

Hello and happy Thursday to you! It is May but here in Iowa it is still in the 40's and feels like winter with the wind today. Hoping the forecaster's are right and it is in the 70's next week. We are so over the cold and wet here.
Now that I am done complaining lets get to a new card today. It is graduation time here so I need to make a few cards for some special young people.

Jennifer McGuire showed a technique the other day with a baby wipe and some dye reinkers. So I used the technique following along with the My Favorite Things color and sketch challenges. So after creating the background I let it dry and used the Congrats die from MFT to cut the word from 110 lb white card stock. Then using the Blooms Fill In dye from Concord and 9th I cut the elongated hexagon. The diploma and mortar board are from Sizzix. I backed the hexagon with a window sheet to keep all the little pieces in place and popped it all up with foam tape to give dimension. I added the metallic gold brad for a little accent for this weeks Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.

You know when you are playing you always create more than one background. lol. This card uses the MFT wish die and essential sentiments.

 Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

CASology #342: Mother

Hello. There is a new challenge up on the CASology Challenge Blog.

My card used a 110 lb white, A2 card base that I stamped the greeting in two colors of ink down the side of the card. I die cut the Rad Roses die from PaperSmooches out of a scrap of white card stock. Then using my Arteza brush pens I blended out the coral color on a water color paper panel, let dry and glued to the back of the Rad Roses. Then fancy cut the roses out and attached it to the card front.

Thanks for stopping by. I am sure the rest of the team has some amazing inspiration for you!

There is a super floral challenge up on the Paper Smooches blog that I will enter this card in also.

CASology #340: Africa

Today's card is all about Africa for the new challenge over on the CASology Challenge Blog.

I must admit this was out of my comfort zone. I did not have any stamps that felt like Africa to me, so the country is drawn free-hand. I looked up the shape on the internet, outlined it in pencil then used a permanent marker to trace over the pencil line. Then I looked up kente cloth colors to create my stripes and stamped them with The Stamp Market's "Trendy Borders" set. The greeting is from the Concord and 9th set "Hi There Bear" set.

Please go check out what the rest of the team has created then join us back at CASology to share your creation. Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
