It's Graduation Day...

Happy Monday! It’s graduation time and that means I needed to whip up a few cards in short order! I am using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches to help me out with this little project!

I started by heat embossing the image in white. Then using my zig clean color markers, I watercolored the bottom of the gowns, legs and shoes. On my first attempt I used clear embossing but you couldn’t tell what I was making! fms 1 (640x522)

I added the sentiment and then layered on the night of navy cardstock. The sparkle is a piece of glitter tape. That stuff is awesome! fms 2 (640x296)

I made two cards in the blue, white, silver combo and another in gold, brown, and yellow for another young grad. fms 3 (640x533)

I was pretty happy with these but mostly how easy the zig markers were to use. In fact, you will see several watercolored cards from me this week because of that! fms 4 (640x368)

A huge thank you to Jen T. at Freshly Made Sketches for picking THIS card as a Perfect Princess! I was more than surprised and thrilled!

Supplies: CS: Watercolor paper. SU! night of navy. PTI kraft. Stamps: SU! go graduate. PTI for the graduate. Other: SU! glitter tape. Zig clean color markers.

Happy Graduation...

Happy Monday!  Today I am sharing the graduation card I made for a couple of gals who graduated from high school.  I hadn’t used my texture paste in a while so I thought that would make a great background for my card. grad1 (558x640)

I started with translucent embossing paste and my tiles stencil to make the design on the midnight muse cardstock.  While waiting for the paste to dry, I dug out my PTI retro style graduation stamps and dies.  I stamped the images in midnight muse onto the white CS and then die cut the image.  Then I stamped the sentiment in versamark so that I could silver emboss it.  Our colors are blue and white with some silver.  So I added my silver in with the embossing, rhinestones and metallic thread. grad2 (640x385)

After looping my thread around the sign, I popped it onto the card front and added the sentiment.  I scattered rhinestones on there for a bit of bling and put everything on a card base of white.
