Yay!

Hey hey! Happy Friday! Happy Early Mother’s Day to everyone celebrating this weekend!

Today’s card is made with this fun new set from the Paper Smooches MAY release. For this card, I used the New Beginnings stamp set (that elephant ❤ !) and the New Beginnings Icons Dies!

I mean, goodness, he’s cute! 🙂

For this card, I just masked off these rays/stripes and blended on some Distress Inks. I can’t recall for sure, but I’m guessing I used Carved Pumpkin and Spiced Marmalade? I colored this cutie elephant with Copic markers, and heat embossed this sentiment from the same stamp set. I adhered all the mortarboards and drew on tassels. I added some white spatters afterward to give it a celebratory feel–pow! I thought this one was fun to highlight your graduate!

Plus, I went to the University of Illinois for my undergrad degree, so I had to use the Orange and Blue. Go Illini! 😉

Next up, I thought I’d share this sweet little card using the same stamp set.

I kept this one very simple with just some stamping, vellum, and stitching. I love these simple cards! 🙂

Be sure you’re following the Paper Smooches blog, and please stop by here again! I’ll be back with more cards to share this month, and I”m hoping I get those posts written soon! 🙂

Have a great weekend!
Jill 🙂
