Congratulations Graduate!

This week the girls will be making a graduation card. I found this cute little owl made a few different times and thought he was so cute I wanted to try it out. Hope you like it!

Here's how I made it:

Started with base piece of Chocolate Chip Cardstock (5.5x4.25). Next came Creamy Caramel Cardstock (5.25x4). Before layering this onto the Chocolate Chip Cardstock I rolled the Classic Stars Jumbo Roller with Creamy Caramel. Next I cut a piece of Chocolate Chip Cardstock (3.5x1). Whisper White Cardstock (3.25x.75) and stamped "contratulations" from the Stampin' UP! Sale-A-Brations stamp set called Congrats.

To Make the Owl:
1 - 1-3/4" Circle (body)
1 - Scalloped Circle, cut in half (wings)
1 - Tab Punch (head) Close to Cocoa Cardstock
2 - 1/2" Circle (Eyes) Whisper White
2 - 1/4" Circle (Eyes) Basic Black
1 - tip of the Large Star Punch (beak) So Saffron
1 - tip of the Small Tag Punch (bottom of hat) Basic Black
1 - 1.5x.25 Piece of Basic Black Cardstock (top of hat)

The tassel is a piece of Basic Black 1/4" Grossgrain Ribbon...tie a know & shred the bottop and attach to the back and flip over the front of the hat.

Strawberry Sparkle Punch

I have a monthly recipe class. The ladies can provide the recipes they wish to have used. This month the recipe for Strawberry Sparkle Punch. I thought it would be fun to try and make the background look like a strawberry. I don't think I did too bad. The only think is that there isn't any stamping, which I guess isn't a horrible thing.

Supplies used:
Paper: Real Red, Garden Green, Tempting Turquoise & Whisper White
Accessories: 5 Petal Flower Punch, Horizontal Slot Punch, Eyelet Border Punch & Red Gingham Ribbon
Thanks for looking, I would love to hear what you think of this!

Thanks Mr K!

This last week was teacher appreciation week. My son wanted to make sure that we included ALL of his teachers. So we made cards for his teacher, his social studies teacher, his art teacher, his music teacher and of course, his gym teacher. I had to pull out the retired stamp set Sporting Goods to make this one.
Supplies Used:
Stamps: Sporting Goods (retired) & Sporting
Paper: So Saffron, Night of Navy, Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Close to Cocoa, Brocade Blue
Ink: Basic Black & Night of Navy
Accessories: 1" Circle Punch, White Gel Pen, Paper Snips & Dimensionals (to pop up the balls)
Hope you like it.....Mr K did!
