Hello Everyone!  Here in Australia, we are coming to the end of our school year and our Year 12 students have all just finished their schooling and preparing for University or the work force.  I have been working with a young woman since April who although was in the middle of her Year 12 studies and being home schooled; took the big step of also starting a Pastry Chef apprenticeship full time as well.  She really is such a lovely young woman and has been a great addition to the team - so when she finally completed her final exams and graduated, I wanted to make her a card to celebrate the occasion!

I've created a base of white using Radiant Rectangles and topped with pink using the same die.  Then I've cut some silver using the next die in the set.  I've stamped the image from As You Graduate in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics and sponged the sky with different inks.  I've cut this out with the oval from Radiant Rectangles and matted with pink cut with another die from the same set.  I've used the sentiment from For The Graduate and split it up, stamping one part and die cutting with Labels 33 and the stamping the other part and cut with Ribbon Banners Dies.  To finish I've added a couple of clear rhinestones.

Stamps - As You Graduate, For the
Paper - White, Pink, Silver, X-press It Blending Card
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Dandelion, Angel Pink, Summer Sky
Accessories - Copics, Spellbinders: Radiant Rectangles, Ribbon Banners, Labels 33; Clear Rhinestones

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

Christmas Cardinal

Hello Everyone!  Today I'm playing with the latest November releases from Our Daily Bread Designs and getting ahead on my Christmas card stash!!  The new toys.....I mean release products that I'm playing with today are this lovely cardinal and sentiment stamp set called Winter Cardinal and this fabby Snow Globe die!

To create this card, I've used a base of Chocolate Chip topped with a solid green paper from Christmas Collection 2017.   On top of that is a patterned piece of paper from the same collection that has been die cut with the largest die from Snowflake Sky.  Around this I've attached a large red hessian ribbon.  Next I've die cut a piece of silver card using the Snow Globe die.  The Cardinal and sentiment from Winter Cardinal have been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copic markers.  The cardinal has been die cut with the Snow Globe die and the sentiment with Layered Lacey Ovals.  I've used foam tape to it up.  Finally I've die cut some white card using Snow Crystals dies, attached them as shown and added a clear rhinestone to each.
