Change the World Grad ~ CTD293

This is another graduation card that I made for Color Throwdown 293, which uses Tangerine Tango, Pear Pizzaz, and Soft Sky.
This is not generally a color scheme that I would gravitate towards, but I thought it'd be nice for a guy graduation.
I used a pretty basic layout, but jazzed it up with a few embellishments.
Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Something to Say, World Map
Paper: Tangerine Tango, Silver Fancy Foil Vellum, Soft Sky, Sweater Weather DSP, White
Ink: Pear Pizzaz, Tangerine Tango
Accessories: Pear Pizzaz bakers twine, Itty Bitty Accents punch pack, Rhinestones, Windows Framelits die, Hardware Clips

Dots, Stripes, and Stars ~ MOJO346

This was another case of scraps on my desk.  The Smokey Slate circle and Going Gray flower, as well as the Strawberry Slush star were all laying around my desk, discarded from previous projects.  I put them all together, along with some
Silver Fancy Foil vellum and NEW Hello Honey DSP, to create this card for Mojo Monday 346.

These colors are pretty fun together and the gold sparkle brad, which are retiring, matches the Hello Honey perfectly!

Here's a list of my supplies.....
Stamps: Pomp and Circumstance (stamped on the inside)
Ink: Hello Honey, Strawberry Slush, Smokey Slate
Paper: Moonlight paper stack, Silver Fancy Foil, Smokey Slate, Going Gray, Strawberry Slush
Accessories: Gold glimmer brad, ruffle stretch trim, Floral Frames die, Circle die

May Paper Crafters Sampler

We've put together a fun yet challenging Sampler together for May.  This month offers three times more flair than the previous issue. 

The request this month varied from holiday and seasonal issues we've had in the past.  Our May issue, "Thrice In Design", takes a whack at design projects with trio's, three's and third's in mind.  Each project simply had to contain "3" of something, be it images, layers or shapes.

Once again the design team pulled through and the creativity of each project shows. 

Here's a sneak peek of my project.....

The Big G ~ FMS136

This post is for Freshly Made Sketches 136.  
My oldest son graduated from High School this past weekend and living in a small community we know lots and lots of other kids graduating too.  I needed 20 something graduation cards....
I thought this sketch worked perfect for the old set Great Grad.  
It came together quickly.  I'm also trying to use up all the SAB designer paper.  

Here's a list of my supplies:
Stamps: Great Grad
Ink: Versamark
Paper: Black, Silver glimmer, Calypso Coral & Sweet Sorbet DSP, White, Crisp Cantalope
Accessories: Black EP, Alphabet Press EF, 1/8" silver ribbon, Hung Up cute clips, Starburst Die, Circles die
