CFC 49 – One More Try

April 25, 2012

I’m going to try again for CAS-ual Friday Challenge‘s sketch. So close to being a one layer card, but I just had to pop up a hat with some dimensionals. I think I’ve cut over 20 hats already. Definitely wish I had a die cut for this.

Graduate Dreams

A close up of the card – Any one layer (or almost one layer) card just calls for embossing 🙂

Graduate Dreams - Close Up

Used: Papertrey Ink (White cardstock, Orange Zest ink, Harvest Gold ink, Smokey Shadow Ink, For the Graduate stamp set) | Jenni Bowlin (Chicken Feed ink) | Stampin’ Up (Summer Sun ink, dimensionals)

Adding another challenge entry to CAS-ual Friday with some blue & orange. Originally, I had intended it to be a single layer card again, but the Jenni Bowlin ink just didn’t like me and I had a huge water-y puddle on my orange hats.  So I cut a few hats out popped them up with dimensionals and hope it covers all the bad stamping.

**Sigh, the blue is so crisp and sharp… but the orange just won’t cooperate =(

CFC 48 – Opposites

April 14, 2012

So CAS-ual Friday is challenging us to use opposite colors this week. I’ve been using purple and yellow especially because Stampin’ Up has this wonderful purple ink  ♥  A super simple card that I originally had it to be one layered, but I guess when you’re throwing hats up like this, it gives it a bit more dimension with the hats popped up.

I used two rinestones for the two hats, a purple one and a dark yellow one to give it a little bling.

Graduate’s Dreams

Thank you Deborah from PTI PTB for this wonderful stamp set, just in time for Graduation season! I made another graduation card with the new stamp set and this time, cleaner and simpler than previous cards.  The focal image is actually stamped in SU!’s Elegant Eggplant, a dark, dark purple that looks even darker after some clear embossing powder.  Unfortunately, I didn’t have the Mat Stack 1 die, but cutting it by hand was pretty simple.

Look at the envelope! I love that envelope more than the card itself! Look at those graduation caps and the “class of” at the bottom, ready to customize for the recipient 🙂
