Congrats Grad

I needed a graduation card and have seen many using this owl. It really is a perfect punch to use and is quite easy to make. I used the red glitter paper that I have and paired it with Cherry Cobbler and Night of Navy cardstock( the school colors). The sentiment is from Happy Greetings.

Summer Mini card class samples

For those of you who cannot make it to the class tonight, here are the cards we are making.

This card uses Bold Blossom for the stems and the new Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch for the flowers. The paper is from Beyond the Garden. I cased this from Sharon Burbert.

This card uses the new Flower Garden embossing folder. The colors are Concord Crush and Old Olive.

I love the level 2 Hostess set in the mini called Love & Care. Sharon Burbert inspired this card. I used Blushing Bride dsp and Newsprint dsp. The colors on the flower are Regal Rose and Old Olive.

This card features Fabulous Florets and Happy Greetings. The leaves were inked with Old Olive and then I removed the ink from the rose bud with my finger and ink them with a Mellon Mambo and Daffodil Delight marker. The two flowers were embossed with black embossing powder on Shimmery White and then colored with markers and blender pen. For a darker more dramatic color, you could use re-inkers and an aquapainter. The flowers were cut out and attached with dimensionals.

The next two cards were cased from Connie Barbert. This card uses the flower from Flower Fest and is punched out with the coordinating punch, love that!

This last card features the On the Grow set. I loved this little jar of flowers the moment I saw it. I stamped it on Naturals White and colored with markers and blender pen. I put a small bit of Dazzleing Diamonds in the centers of the flowers as well as pearls. Finally, I added some Crystal Effects on the jar along the lines only to give it more dimension.
