SU Graduation Card

SU Treehouse Adventure Four Panel Screen Grad Card

July 19, 2018

I missed another graduation party of a very special young man named Luke.
I think he was born grown up just like his older brother. He has a bright future ahead of him.
I made him this graduation card using the same Four Panel Screen Template as my last post!
You can see it HERE.

I used the Large Letters and the retired Large Numbers on this card along with the sentiments
from Treehouse with the balloon die cuts from the Candles and Confetti Framelits.

 

 

Luke’s school colors are Red, Black and White but you could make any color combination with this design.
Adding in some Glimmer Paper of any color jazzes up the card, don’t you think?

SU Hand Delivered Four Panel Screen Card Video

July 16, 2018

It’s graduation party time, and I am sad that I can not be at my niece Ashalee’s graduation party
this week. I made her a special card to celebrate her achievement…

Oh, by the way…her school colors and orange and blue:)

I have a video showing you how to make a four panel screen card:

OH MY GOSH….I kept saying the panels were each 4″ when they are actually 3″  which is (3″ x 4 panels= 12″) So Sorry, friends!!!!

Since Pumpkin Pie is such a beautiful bright orange,
I paired it with the NEW Blueberry Bushel cardstock. I just loved them together:)

 

The Light Night of Navy Stampin’ Blend alcohol marker
blended well to complement Blueberry Bushel. 

Simple and colorful, perfect for Ashalee!

Hold on to Hope Bundle found in the Occasions Catalog.

Here is how you create a  Bridge Fold Card:

Notice the framelit that cut out the fancy cross below is an additional one that does not coordinate with any image-
how nice to have that, huh? I inlaid the cross in the cut out I made with another die after stamping the foliage.

Here is a simple way to finish off the back to write a message of encouragement or sympathy.

The Hold on to Hope Stamp Set is a versatile one that offers a variety of uses

SU Bravo with New Bohemian DSP and Boho Chic Embossing Folder

May 29, 2015

You saw that fun Bohemian Designer Series Paper on my Paper Share Post– You can see it HERE.  I wanted to showcase its rich, vibrant colors with this Congratulations card- perfect for the graduation parties coming up really soon!

IMG_2898

 I LOVE a paper with a ton of colors to play with- this one has Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss, Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry, and Delightful Dijon with Very Vanilla as its neutral base on some of the papers. The new Delightful Dijon color is making my sorrow of losing More Mustard a few years back a little less severe.

SU Bravo Bohemian

My first step in making this card was using the NEW Boho Chic embossing folder on the front of the card. I stamped the sentiment with the SU Bravo stamp set.  My Stampin’ Write markers worked perfectly to do a little sprinkling of dots to jazz up the sentiment a bit. Since it was a photopolymer, I actually cut the stamp apart so I could use multiple colors without having to mask any words! I cut it cleanly without trimming so it would pop right back together again when I want it whole!

I cut the banner with the new Triple Banner punch that can cut up to 2″- I will be using that a lot for sure! Various stars were cut out with framelits from the Star set- big one, the Scentsational Season (retired)- smallest one, and another medium sized one, I can’t place right now.

SU Bravo Bohemian Inside

I  also used the SU Bravo stamp set for the inside sentiment. You can just stamp the words or add  a simple pocket holder for a gift card or money.

 The  inside bottom was decorated with stamps from the New SU Bohemian Borders stamp set. I am very excited that Stampin’ Up designed and created a DSP, an embossing folder, and a stamp set that coordinate!

Getting excited…..We can order soon- JUNE 2!

SU Be the Star for my Boy!

April 23, 2015

Let’s go ‘Canes!

You could say my husband’s alma mater, the University of Miami, holds a dear spot in his heart (and our driveway sometimes)…

Raisin' Cane

and now…

my oldest son (27) is graduating in May with his Legal Master Degree in Real Property (Real Estate)  from the University of Miami Law School after obtaining his law degree two years ago. Little did I know when I started homeschooling the little lad more than two decades ago that he would end up in school FOREVER!

I used the SU Be the Star stamp set, star framelits, and Lucky Stars embossing folder to make this simple little card to attach to his UM gift in two weeks.

Of course, I only have this done early  because of the

SU Only Challenges # 120 – Team Colors!

I also used the Pals Paper Arts # 249  sketch challenge this round that shows a square card- mine is 4 1/4″ so it will fit in a clear envelope that attaches to the gift.
