It’s graduation time – today I’m sharing a fun, celebratory card I made for my cousin who just graduated from high school. Sarah is the youngest of my cousins – I wanted to make a bright and cheery card that’s full of the congratulations it offers. I reached for two of my favorite former In Colors to create this card for Sarah:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Calligraphy Essentials. The Flirty Flamingo panel on this card is created by stamping “celebrate” from the Calligraphy Essentials multiple times. The stamp set coordinates with the Calligraphy Essentials Project Kit – with fun templates to master your calligraphy skills. The outlined sentiments in this set, though, work wonderfully on their own. Here’s a look at the Calligraphy Essentials stamp set: If you are like me, you appreciate a beautiful handwriting – you’re going to want this set and the coordinating project kit. Here’s a Stampin’ Up! video to show you how the Calligraphy Essentials Project Kit works:
- June 1 Can’t Come Fast Enough. I’m so excited for June 1 – not only is it the first day we can buy brand new products from Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Annual Catalog, but it’s the first day in a very long time that we can order two very exciting products we already love – Stampin’ Blends and the Stamparatus. Both are showcased on this card today. I colored the three rhinestones on this card with a Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend – Stampin’ Up!’s alcohol markers. Here’s a closer look at this element (the rhinestones are on the left side of this close-up photo): I also used my Stamparatus to line up the “celebrate” sentiment over and over. With the removable hinge, I simply stamped with Flirty Flamingo, moved the platform down ones and stamped it again. Such a wonderful element of this handy tool! Here’s a look at the Stamparatus (you can order yours on June 1):
- Bright and Cheery Colors. There’s a sweetness to all three of these bright colors – Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana and Daffodil Delight. Together, they are a perfect trio that screams “celebration!” If you love this combination of colors as much as I do, please save this:
Stamp Sets: Calligraphy Essentials, Bunch of Blossoms Papers: Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, Basic Gray, Whisper White Inks: Flirty Flamingo, Archival Basic Black, Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Accessories: 1-3/8″ Circle punch, Layering Circles Framelits Dies, Starburst, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you like this bright and cheery card – and I hope Sarah likes it, too. I love that I can create cards that are tailored to the recipient of each card. Such a wonderful benefit of this amazing craft!
