Time for Graduation!

Hello Everyone!  This month Divinity Designs is all about Fathers Day and GRADUATION!!  I was SO EXCITED to see Graduation products coming out for May because my first born will be graduating Grade 12 this year - although here in Australia that means in November, so I will have plenty of time to create a range of things to celebrate this big occasion!

So what new goodies am I using today?  There are two new stamp sets with a Graduation theme and I have The Future!  I'm also using the new Grad Dies and Weathered Wood Paper Collection!


I guess because I have a son graduating, I aimed for a more masculine themed Graduation Card. I've used the Vintage Label Flip Fold with Layers for the base using black card and cut the Weathered Wood paper with the Layers Dies.  I've stamped the sentiments from The Future in the top and bottom corners.  I've used the largest Vintage Label die from the same set to cut a piece of silver for the front.  Then used a piece of white card, the next sized Vintage Label Die from the same set and then the Double Pierced Vintage Labels Die to cut the middle to create the frame for the front and the cut out piece for the middle. I've cut black card using the Grad Dies for the words on the front and cap in the middle (the tassel is cut of silver).  The numbers are cut using Long and Lean Numbers and the Apostrophe from Long and Lean Letters.  I've stamped the inside sentiment from The Future and then finished with a few black rhinestones.

Ink - Black
Paper - Divinity Designs Weathered Wood, Black, Silver, White
Accessories - Divinity Designs Dies: Long and Lean Numbers, Long and Lean Letters (apostrophe), Vintage Label Flip Fold with Layers, Grad, Double Pierced Vintage Labels; Black Rhinestones
For my second project, I've made a Gift Card Holder!  I've used the Gift Card Holder Die to cut black card for the base, topped with some red card and then cut the decorative white panel using the filigree panel also from Gift Card Holder Die Set.  I've cut the Cap using Grad Dies out of black and gold card.  Next I've stamped the sentiment from The Future in black onto white card, die cut with Pennant Flags Dies and matted with black card cut with Double Stitched Pennant Flags.  Perfect for the little gift for the new Graduate!

A Sweet 15!


Hello Everyone!  Today I have a card for my niece Heidi who is turning 15 in a few days!  I love these new Long and Lean Letters and Long and Lean Numbers by Divinity Designs, they are just perfect for personalising and great for creating teen cards!

I've used a white base topped with aqua cut with Snowflake Sky, a layer of deep pink card and then Romantic Roses Paper cut with Rectangles Dies.  Next I've cut the name out of deep pink card using Long and Lean Letters and assembled them across the bottom.  (I love how you can fit a name across a vertical card because these letters are so skinny!)  I've added a piece of silver ribbon across the top and then cut a heart out of deep pink (I've used the die from Festive Favors here) and then the numbers out of white using Long and Lean Numbers.

Stamps - NONE
Ink - NONE
Paper - DD Romantic Roses, White, Deep Pink, Aqua
Accessories - DD Dies: Long and Lean Letters, Long and Lean Numbers, Festive Favors, Snowflake Sky, Rectangles; Silver Ribbon, Glue

That's all from me today, thanks for popping by and hope you are inspired to stamp!  :)

April Colour Challenge


Hello Everyone!  Today the Divinity Divas have been challenged to create using the the colour combo of medium pink, hot pink and light gold!  I've also been able to create using the latest dies released by Divinity Designs called Long and Lean Letters!  They are sooooo cool!  :)  This was the perfect opportunity to make a card for my niece, Kaia, who just happens to love pink and her birthday is tomorrow!! 


I've used a neutral base and layered with medium pink and hot pink, topping that with some fun paper from the Beautiful Blooms Paper Pad.  I've added a strip of light gold paper across the middle.  I've cut a cream piece of card with Squares dies and matted with medium pink card cut with Scalloped Squares, adhered together and then used a smaller Sqaures die to cut the middle out to create a frame and added that to the middle.  I've then used Long and Lean Letters to cut the name out of medium pink card and glued them as shown.  Hope she likes it!

April Releases!


Hello Everyone!  Today the Divinity Divas are looking back at the Divinity Designs April Release.  There is such variety this month and I'm using the new stamp set Grandmother's Heart for my first project and  Long and Lean Letters for my second!

I've used a white card base by folding a piece of card in half and cut it with Scalloped Rectangles leaving the top fold uncut.  Next I've used the same die to cut a piece of pink paper from the Pretty Pink Peonies Collection and glued it neatly over the top.  I've layered with a piece of green card, white card cut with a smaller die from Scalloped Rectangles and topped with a patterned piece of Pretty Pink Peonies paper cut with Double Stitched Rectangles.  Around this I've attached two pieces of light green ribbon.  I've stamped the image and sentiment from Grandmother's Heart in black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured the flower with Copics.  I've cut each out using two sizes of dies from Double Stitched Circles, popping the sentiment up on foam tape.  To finish I've added some pink rhinestones to the top corner.

Paper - DD Pretty Pink Peonies Collection, X-press It Blending Card, White, Green

My second card is for my brother who celebrates his birthday in April!  I love alphabet dies, they are perfect for customising your projects which makes making masculine cards super easy!  :)

I've used a base of green, a layer of cream cut with Pierced Rectangles which is layered with blue and green card.  On top of this is a panel of Vintage Ephemera paper cut with Rectangles Dies.  Next I've cut the balloon using Balloons and Streamers Dies out of cream and blue card and glued in place.  I've then cut the happy birthday using Happy Birthday Script and the 'CRAIG' using Long and Lean Letters all out of green card and glued as shown.

All That I Am


Hello Everyone!  Today I have a Center Step Card using the latest stamp set released by Divinity Designs called Grandmother's Heart.  This set has a floral image and a selection of sentiments for Mothers and Grandmothers......just in time for Mother's Day!  :)

I've used cream for my base and cut it with Center Step Card Die.  Next I've used the Center Step Layers to cut some Pretty Pink Peonies Collection paper.  I've used Scalloped Ovals to cut cream card for the next layer.  I've stamped the image from Grandmother's Heart in black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copics.  I've kept part of the image outside the Ovals die and added a shim to prevent it cutting (but my Grand Calibur got pretty close I have to say!) and trimmed those leaves up.  I've stamped the sentiment also from Grandmother's Heart in black and then sponged some Antique Linen ink around the edges.  I've popped the oval panel up on foam tape.

Stamps - Grandmother's Heart (Divinity Designs)
Ink - Black
Paper - DD Pretty Pink Peonies Collection, Cream, X-press It Blending Card
Accessories - DD Dies: Center Step, Center Step Layers, Ovals, Scalloped Ovals; Copics, X-press It Foam Tape

Power Poppy Friday!


Hello Everyone!  It's time for another Power Poppy Friday and today is also a Weekend Stamp Steal for Artistic Bouquet and Rosé All Day digital!  So of course I whipped out my Artistic Bouquet clear set and got to work!  :)

I've stamped this big beauty of an image from Artistic Bouquet onto X-press It Blending Card and then die cut it with Pierced Rectangles Die and then set to colouring it all with Copics!  I always need lots of birthday cards at this time of year (well most times of the year really, but particularly in May and June), so I've used the Birthday Blessings sentiment, also from Artistic Bouquet.  I've matted this with white and put it on an aqua base and finished with a few rhinestones for a bit of sparkle!

April Release


Hello Everyone!  It's release time for Divinity Designs and I'm showcasing the new Long and Lean Numbers Dies.  These awesome number dies have a companion in the Long and Lean Letters Dies!  I love a good alpha set and to have the matching numbers is just too awesome for words!!  :)










Of course there is more to the new release than just these two sets and you can find all the latest goodies in the Divinity Designs Store!

I've made today's card with my nephew in mind who has a birthday coming up very soon!!  I kept the design fairly simple and masculine with a bit of a beachy theme since he lives quite close to the beach!

I've used a base of kraft card, layered with cream and topped with some By The Shore paper.  Across this I've added some mesh ribbon.  Next I've cut some blue card with Large Banner Dies and topped that with kraft cut with Pierced Circles and cream cut with Circles Dies.  Finally I've cut blue card using Long and Lean Numbers Dies.
