Graduation Time Again!

DSC_0516

 

It’s certainly that time a year again, where you can see all the youngsters so excited about Graduation.  I remember when I graduated from HS 10 years ago (wink, wink) in someways it feels like forever ago and then somehow it feels like yesterday!  Anyhoo,  one of these cards, not sure which one yet, will be headed to a neighbor’s daughter very soon. I wanted to incorporate her school colors into the card, and NO I am not referring to the Florida Gators either….blech!  I love my relatively new to me happy Diecut from SU! I love cutting it out across two colors of paper and as you will see I used the negative space in the card below!  A twofer, which is a win win in my book! DSC_0520

Not sure you can see in the photo but I covered the cap and tassle with Crystal Effects.  The cap is not a die, I drew it myself off of a photo a few years ago and kept it as a stencil. Then after it was dry well I thought it was dry, until I ran my entire finger crossed it and smeared it a little, I decided to run it through a dot embossing folder to hide the smear marks.  It helped quite a bit! The numbers were made with a alphabet set I LOVE and the graduation sentiment comes in a SU set called Crazy About You.

I am linking one of the above cards into three separate challenges: Pink Elephant where they have a Graduation Theme and over at the Curtain Call where the Inspirational challenge is called Totally Tassle!  Then the second card into the challenge over at Mod Squad where they want us to use the negative of a die cut on our card and or project!

Use the Negative

DSC_0466

STB ToppingsHello Friends,  It’s time for a new challenge over at Seize the Birthday and the topping this time around is to use the negative.  I love my new Lawn Fawn set and I realize I just used the sun on my last post, I sure hope you don’t mind seeing it again.  I can’t take credit for the design of this card, I CASED one of my FAVORITE designers Tracey McNeeley,  I fell in love with her card as soon as I came across it!  You will see it below!  Overlapping the sun and the cloud I think is a cool effect! As I said, the clouds and sun are from Lawn Fawn and the Happy is Stampin Up.  The Birthday is a stamp from Hero Arts. I love how easy it was to inlay the sun into the negative piece of cardstock. I will definitely be doing this again.

I wonder if Tracey knows how much she has inspired me in the card making journey? If you aren’t familiar with her or her work, here is her blog. In My Creative Opinion, and HERE is a direct link to this post. Please come on over to STB and join us.  My Design Team has done an amazing job with this challenge, come on over and have a look!  Have a wonderful day! Nanc’

Happy Halloween…

Halloween is close at hand and the kids at school are getting excited, so as the saying goes….” If you can’t beat ’em you might as well join ’em!

This week the Dynamic Duos have chosen Orange and Black as there 2 color choices along with using a Diecut as an added Dessert!

 I combined that challenge with a great sketch over at Freshly Made and this is what I came up with!

I got to use my new Spellbinders that I got yesterday!!!  It’s called Picot Edge and I have been wanted some kind of Circle Diecut for quite sometime now!  So thrilled!

The paper is a mixture of  SU,CM, along with Stamp TV Cardstock.  I also used the Cuttlebug Victoria embossing folder for some added texture!

Thanks so much for the visit!

Have a great week!
