TSSC363 Adventure Awaits Graduation


Happy Wednesday, peeps!  I had some fun stamping time yesterday and I made this graduation card for a customer order…it uses Mary Jo’s Technostamper sketch:

I know this is a rather non-traditional graduation card, but my customer said she didn’t have any color preference, so I chose some SAB paper I had laying around and pulled out Adventure Awaits….I think these sentiments are perfect for a graduate:

I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede on an oval of Whisper White,  then stamped the banner in Calypso Coral on a scrap and cut it out.  It looked a little bare, so I had an “aha” moment and decided to stamp the sunburst from Kinda Eclectic in Soft Suede on the background, then popped up the banner with a couple of dimensionals…I love the effect!  I added a little border and some sequins from a Paper Pumpkin kit for some sparkle!

I recently won a Misti from Lydia at Understand Blue and I have had a lot of fun learning how to use it and practicing with it!  THANKS, LYDIA!  I am overwhelmed with gratefulness, as I really wanted one after seeing all the glowing reports in blogland!  So here is one of my tries for the inside of my grad card….I had cut this graduation stamp apart so I could use it separately and of course, now I wanted to use it together…the Misti helped me line it up and I was able to line up the overstamped sentiment from Guy Greetings perfectly too!  Woohoo!


I love how this turned out….thanks for visiting today, too!

Cassidy began playing with my new In Color pads and reinkers—”these are PEOPLE lining up to do gymnastics, Grammy”—and before I knew it, she had ALL my reinkers lined up in rows.  We had to count them (there were over 60) and then of course, guess who had to put them all away because she can’t read?!  Oh well, she had fun and it kept her occupied for a few minutes, LOL!
