Grads & A Happy Day Card

Hello, Things have been kind of crazy for me lately! Busy with preparations for Camp and also I have had some migraines and health issues the last few days!!

But today, I finally got to go and play in my craft room!

I have 2 wonderful and awesome nephews that have graduated recently and I made these cards for them. They are in their school colors.

I made these cards with lots of silver embossing and a whole bunch of masking!

I used Rose Red ink and Brilliant Blue ink – Both from Stampin’ Up! I layered on silver paper the different layers I had stamped. I used an old set called Tassel Time (also from SU!)

~I am linking these cards up to the following challenges~

Creative With Stamps Challenge # 3 Manly/Masculine Cards

My Graduation cards were made for my Nephews – and I feel they are masculine in color and design.

I think my nephews will be seeing stars when they see their cards!!

InkspirationalChallenge # 111 Designer’s Choice – Masking


I did a whole lot of masking with all those stars so I could shade around them.

This is Anything! :)

I also had time to play with some stamps from Great Impressions – although, the only ones I had were for Easter, so that is what kind of card I made!

~ A Happy Day Easter Card ~


This card was made with 1 Great Impressions stamp called A Bunny Hug and some washi tape and some word stamps from SU!

I colored in my image with my “Ziggy”s and I used Lawn Fawn die cuts for my pieces of my card!

~My card is “Hop”ping into these challenges~
