Graduation Star

 

SC912 - This week's sketch on splitcoaststampers.com.

I changed the circle for a star and used a few designer papers from a graduation paper pad to create the card. I finished with a few sticker embellishments and the sentiment.

This card is going to a young man that just graduated from the local high school. He was 10 minutes away from his party starting when he had a seizure and ended up in the hospital missing his own graduation party. Several neighbors are sending him cards to help cheer him up.

Great colors for a fun fireman birthday card. I sponged the sky color then die cut the frame. Die cut the firetruck and the birthday sentiment and assembled the fire truck from Rubberkneckers.

For the flames I started at the bottom using the Honeybee flame stencil and I added a bit of grey to the bottom layer to give it a bit more depth. Once the layers were done I glued down the sentiment, truck and fire hydrant.

2 Cards 1 Background Technique

 

MMTPT726 - 1 Background technique for two cards - I used the Double Stencil Resist HERE.

USEIT2022 - both images

I love getting 2 cards for 1 background technique. This is the double stencil resist technique for 2 little ones that need a bit of cheer.

Once the backgrounds were created I found in my stash these 2 images that were already colored waiting for cards and perfect for a little boy and little girl. One image is from Polkadoodles and the other is a Tilda image.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my card today. I appreciate the lovely comments. If you leave me a comment, I can stop by your blog for a visit.

Congratulations on Your New Pet

 

CAS695 - Use colored card stock for your base

When I think of clean and simple cards I am naturally drawn to white but honestly a card can be CAS with any colored card base as long as there is blank space on the card.

For today's card I used black. I stamped the dog image then colored with copics. I then stamped the soccer ball and die cut it and popped the ball up on a dimensional. I thought it would be fun to add a wobble to the dog for some fun and I sponged the grass and sky on the image scene.

I finished the card with the sentiment heat embossed in white.
