Happy Friday! Hope you’re off to start a wonderful weekend! If you are looking for my Paper Smooches DT June Hop post, please click —> HERE. Prizes to win! Such fun to see the new goodies! 🙂
Today’s card is made with the May released Grad Cap Card Die from Paper Smooches. I also used the New Beginnings 2 stamp set. It’s packed with great sentiments!
I ❤ that sentiment, “Bask in Your Awesomeness”!! Perfect! 🙂 This die set makes this fun tassel, which I think can be used in a variety of ways, outside of tassel making!
These fun sunglasses are from the Pineapple 2 die set. Love. Them.
I thought this was a fun nod to how graduates put tape on their caps to say “Hi Mom” etc. Do they still do this? Ha! I don’t think I ever did because I feel like we received our attire late in the game? Hmmmm… You’d think I’d remember my graduations. Nope. Ha! I think I was exhausted 🙂
Check out the Paper Smooches blog for more fun, and stay in the loop on the upcoming release and current challenge! I love the PS Challenges! Always have. 🙂
Have a great weekend!
Happy Monday! ❤
I thought I’d pop in and share the card I made for my son this week. He has 12 days left of kindergarten ( 😦 TOO FAST!), and you’d think it was more like 100 days. LOL 🙂 He’s ready to bust out for SURE!
You should also know that he adores stuffies, his favorite color has always been orange, and these claw games memorize him! Of course, we don’t play them, so this is the next best thing. 🙂 Well, in my mind anyway! Bwwwhaaahaa!
This new set from Lawn Fawn, You’re Claw-some, was a must have here. For all the reasons stated above! 🙂 It is just tooooo cute!
I used my Zig Clean Color markers to watercolor this on Bristol paper. The patterned paper was a bonus I received in one of my Lawn Fawn packages (Thank you, LF!). The background is stamped repeatedly with the stars/hearts from this set. I just randomly colored in a few my Copics, to add a little interest. I finished it off with some stitching and Wink of Stella sparkle.
Also, I am finally getting around to entering the fun over at Lawn Fawnatics! This is for this Challenge #5 HERE! Play along, there is lots of time left!
So spunky and cute! I chose to use the orange, blue, and a touch of green & red. I actually colored the unicorn pink/purple that goes with this set, but he was left off this card. Likely to hop on another one soon!
Have a great week!
Happy early weekend! Hope you have a great weekend planned or even a lack of plans. That’s always good too, right? 🙂
I thought I’d pop in and share a card I made with the Paper Smooches Triangles Die. I could inlay this die for hours, with all sort of different colors and designs. Now that I have all these colors cut out of different cardstocks, I may just whip up a few more!
This Awesome word die is definitely a favorite PS die that gets used an awful lot around here. 😉
I mailed this one out to an awesome crafty friend. 🙂 I need more of these cards STAT!
I am whipping up lots of stuff for June, but hope to be back soon with a few other May posts. Tick-tock, it’s already the 19th! Wow.
Have a great weekend!
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!
