Graduation Project

I did this for a friend of our family. I saw the idea on Pinterest. I got the frame and mat at a garage sale and printed the words. Fun gift idea.

Graduation Cards

I did a couple graduation cards for a person at work. I used the Cricut Pop-up card cartridge to do the cap. The rest is just nice paper.

Fun at Sierra's Crafts

I had so much fun at the local craft store. They were celebrating paper crafts. They offered 3 free projects and then you got a free goodie bag too. Mine had paper, clear stamps, stickers, and a EK success bag. Soooo much fun. Here are the projects I did.
This is the first and it is already attached to my purse. It was a bottle cap key ring.  Simple but so cute. 

Then I did a zentangle ATC. It looks better in person than the photo shows. It took me a long time but I was pretty happy with it. I am not an artist. I think I will make a card with it. 
Last I did this fun little card. They didn't tell you the design. They just gave you a package of supplies and then had loads of supplies laying there to use. I thought the design turned out nicely. I am going to give the card to a friend tonight for her surprise birthday party. 

Sooo much FUN!

Cards from May Card Making Class

I haven't had card class for a while and decided to have one this week. We did it yesterday. I miss having the dance studio to have class in but we fit fine at my house.  We had lots of fun and here are the cards we did.
This is done with the new Floral Burst die from Spellbinders. I love all the folded over parts. I think I will be using that a lot. The background stamp was one from a clear set I had. I am sorry I don't remenber the maker. The ink was SU Old Olive.

This is the second card. It is done with a Stamp Up set of stamps. The set is called Faith in Nature and is retiring.  The backgrounds for the stamped papers is done by brayering Adirondack Ink on photo paper.

Here is the last of the cards.  The stamp is from Outline stamps. I colored it with Ticonderoga colored pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits.  The doodle background was another clear stamps set. It is stamped with Stampin Up white craft ink and embossed with white embossing powder. The upper embossed area is done with a Cuttlebug embossing die.

Lots of fun cards for an inexpensive class. I had 8 people come. It was fun to play.
