Let Your Dreams Soar Above the Clouds

This card is a sneak peek of one of the new Stampin’ Up bundle Above the Clouds photopolymer stamp set and punch.  This bundle is very versatile and perfect for this time of year, graduation.  My card is also inspired by the color challenge of Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

I stamped the clouds with Versamark on  Coastal Cabana then embossed with white embossing powder.  The hot air balloons I stamped with Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo then used a blender pen with and ink pads to color.  I then die cut with the Hot Air Balloon punch.  The birds and sentiment I stamped with black Momento ink.  The sentiment I die cut with 1-3/4″ circle punch and the white outer circle with the 2″ circle punch.  Then used white bakers twine and Basic Rhinestones to embellish.

Graduation Owl Card

It’s that time of year and I’ve been inspired to create graduation projects.  I used the Perfect Pennants die to create the focal point of my card.  I have tons of silver card stock from an invitation project.  I used it as my card base and die cut a pennant from Basic Black cardstock.  I embossed the pennant with the Stripes embossing folder and added a silver glitter top.  I cut both medallions from the Perfect Pennants die and used my Owl builder punch for my graduation owl.  Doesn’t he look smart?  He’s such a cutie too!

I printed the black and white Houndstooth check from the digital Night and Day Designer Series Papers for his little vest.  You get ten beautiful black and white background papers for $4.95.   I love creating hybrid projects with My Digital Studio.

I used the graduation cap from the digital stamp set Go Graduate Plus stamp brush set.  I printed it out and used it as a template.  The wings are 1/4 of the 1-3/4 Scallop Circle.

This card can be given to any graduate and they would love it.  Especially if there’s a gift card or check inside.  This card can be created with any high school colors.  I think I’ll send this card to my nephew.  His school colors are cardinal, black and white.
