Graduation Congratulations

I had an order for a grandson who was graduating from High School. The school colors were maroon, grey, black. I also made another one that instead of the 3 stars it has 2017 in maroon.

CHALLENGES:
1) May Inspirational Card Challenge – favorites. I didn’t get to this sketch (#5) last month in Card Sketch Challenge. Original sketch is Tuesday Morning Sketches #396.

SUPPLIES:
Digital Stamp – Congratulations Graduate by Deedee Anderson. Her shop is closed but she might have it on her website http://papercraftromance.com/
Inks: pre-colored digital image printed on a Canon Inkjet Printer. I did paper piece the tassel to get it the color I wanted.
Cardstock: Bazzill (Raven, bazzill white, Ash, Crabapple dark)
Patterned Paper: Doodlebug (Valedictorian)
Accent/Tools: The Paper Studio stars embossing folder, Star brads

Graduation Doors

So I had a last minute order where the guy needed a graduation card for his grandson. He wanted 3 doors with signs and a male graduate on the card. This is what I came up with. Not super happy with the doors but that is all I could come up with quickly. He liked it so I guess it worked.

Graduation

I needed a card for a friend who graduated college while working full time and raising a family. Very proud of him! So I used the sketch from the card challenge and made this whole card out of scraps!! Now that I’m looking at it I should of tilted the the top circle on the bottom so it would look like the hat was falling…oh well will do if I make another card! I got to use a brand new embossing template that I got a couple months ago when they were on sale at JoAnns.

You ever have those cards or challenges you are determined to do but man do they make you work for it!! Well that is what happened when I decided to make the 2 sketches offered at Feeling Sketchy for their Month Long National Scrapbook Day Challenge. I knew these sketches would get me out of my comfort zone and I wanted a little challenge!! Be careful what you ask for!! I thought I would have a hard time with the circles but that one came together in no time. Now the other sketch gave me a run for my money!! After several tries I finally came up with something I liked!

Way to Go-Graduation

I found graduation stickers at Wal-Mart for .97 cents!! I was excited since I knew I would be using a lot with 12 graduations at church. Which I will be working on later this week!

But these two were based off the sketch at Fetch A Sketch Challenge #50.

Cardstock: Bazzill (raven, bazzill white)

Graduation Cap

I have the best husband EVER!! I have several graduation cards to make for church and I love graduation stamps BUT the problem lies in that I’m not good coloring with black (well most colors but for sure black!). So I batted my eyelashes and asked my husband who is VERY GOOD with photoshop if he could color the cap in for me. He asked how I wanted it and I told him and showed him a picture of the wonderful cards the ladies had made for samples with this image. He colored this cap in to look like it was water colored!!! Is that not AWESOME or what!!! I’m truly spoiled….don’t tell him though….it will be our secret!! I got the design for the card from the sketch above so all I had to do was pick out papers! Got to love that!

It has been a long day for me so I think I’m going to go crash on my pillow.
