Congratulations to an Eagle Scout

This week’s sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments inspired me to create this card for my best friend’s son.  He achieved the Eagle Scout rank in Boy Scouts.  I used Night of Navy, Whisper White and Red Glimmer paper.  I cut two 1″ strips of Night of Navy and Red Glimmer paper.  I downloaded the badge from the internet, printed it and cut it out.  Using the sketch made it so easy and fast.  This sketch would work for all kinds of cards and color combinations.

Hearts and Butterflies Wedding card

I created this card for Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  I recently purchased the Fancy Foild Designer paper which is so pretty.  Just perfect for a wedding card.  I used the vellum paper with silver hearts and silver glimmer paper.  I added a few die cut butterflies and hearts and VOILA! a beautiful wedding card.

For the Graduate

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we’re celebrating graduates.  Create any project – card, gift set, card holder, money holder, scrapbook page, or any 3D item with a graduation theme.  For my project I wanted to make a gift set using my Top Not die.  I used Basic Black, Silver and Whisper White card stock.  After die cutting the Basic Black Top Notes I textured them with the Texture Plates Kit #4 Distressed plate.  I die cut two more Top Notes in Silver to outline the black ones.  Cut along he perforated line on the Basic Black Top Note then adhere the silver Top Note behind the Basic Black one. The graduation cap silhouette is one I created.  See below for template.  I rolled some Whisper White paper for the diploma and tied with Basic Black Satin ribbon.  I then stamped the sentiment (Curly Cute) and created the banner.

I created the card to hold a gift card.  I used the Two-step owl punch and created the cap from silver card stock.  The diploma is a strip of Whisper White then wrapped with retired silver cording.  I then adhered the owl to circle layers with dimensionals.

I hope you’re inspired to make your own graduation gift sets.  Hop over to Hand Stamped Sentiments, be inspired, create and upload your project.

Hand Stamped Sentiments – Color Splash Challenge

It’s a color splash challenge.  Basic Black, Real Red and So Saffron are the bold colors we’re playing with this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I decided for my project this week I would use the Stars #2 Original Die , glitter and My Digital Studio to create a graduation card.  I created the Basic Black grid background and the Real Red grid background with ‘CONGRATS’ on My Digital Studio.  I used the Big Shot and the star die to cut the stars then glittered the Basic Black stars and layered them with the Real Red and So Saffron stars.  A quick and easy card with some bling!  I invite you to post your creation.
