Graduation Time!!

It's time to think about those high school graduations!  I found this quick card on Pintrest and had to give it my own spin on it.  A pdf of the directions can be found here. Jill's Ink.

I used black card-stock with white pearlized insert.  the congratulations stamp is from Stampin-Up.  The gold tassel is gold ribbon that I trimmed the outer edge off and then pulled the strands out.  The cap folds up an has a envelope to put money in for the graduate. 

I really enjoyed making this card.  I could see personalizing it to the school colors very easily.

Mother's Day

With Mother's Day around the corner I have been busy making cards.  This year I have made three different ones.
The first card is a free cut from Cricut Craft Room.
 
This is a pick cardstock with a light purple insert.  The flowers were cut from Cricuts Florals Embellished.  The center of the flowers are pearls.

This also a free cut from the Cricut Craft Room.  It's red cardstock with a white insert.  The daisy is replacing the rose cut that was in the original design.  I colored in the MOM to help it stand out. Where the diamond bling is there was some shadowed lines that were cut out.  I like the bling a little more just to add another dimension to the card.

The last card is my favorite,  It is a circle easel card.  The turquoise outer circle is cut using Spellbinders Nesting Butterfly Circles.  I saved some of the punched out butterfly to re-use on the face of the card.  The shimmer white card stock is cut out using Sizzex Circle Framelits.  I then embossed it.  The larder butterflies I found at a scrapbooking expo (no name brand).  On the inside I used a clear flower bling to hold it up.

May 1st!

I have no new pictures this week.  I have been very busy with orders and home life.  The weather is also getting nicer which is making it harder to sit in a room crafting!  Please check back next week to see what I've been working on.
