Good Bye Card

As summer begins we have friends that are moving and so does my son.  I needed a quick card, not much crafting time right now as we are preparing to move.  I found the clip art of the bottle online, no source info with picture, and I thought it was cute and would be perfect.  I lifted the layout from my previous coffee card.  I love it...I printed three copies of the bottle and then layered up certain parts to give it dimension.  The border is hand drawn.  I added a few sequin stars and some washi tape, done!  Sometimes simple is best.

Graduation Girl in Purple

Another graduation card using an older image from Saturated Canary; unfortunately, she is no longer available.  Like before, I colored her to resemble the graduate. I decided to make a box card so it could be used as a decoration.  I really wanted to make it festive so I used rhinestone numbers and tulle to add to the box.  I love it...I hope she does.  ~Marie

Hats Off Graduation Cards

These were so fun, and easy, to make.  I usually hate making shaker cards in mass; however, this time I had the WRMK Fuse Tool.  I love this tool.  I made 12 shaker cards in an hour...unheard of!  As these cards are for boys I kept them clean and simple.  The image in the shaker is a piece of clip art I found and, of course, they are done in the school colors.  The pennants are stickers from Jolee's.  I really like these and I can not wait to use my Fuse Tool again.  

Have your tried the Fuse tool yet?

Blue Bird Card

Cute CAS card I made for a recent swap.  I love how they came out.  I used the Stampin' Up Bird Builder punch.  all the colored card stock is from my scrap stash.  Love when I can use up scraps! This card just makes me smile.

Back to graduation cards!

Graduate Girl in Red

I love how this card turned out!  I made it for a very special girl.  I had the joy of caring for her when she was much younger.  She and Jarek were buddies.  We moved away when they were both 4 years old.  Through Facebook I have watched her grow into a beautiful young lady.                                                                                                                                                      I used an older image from Saturated Canary; unfortunately, she is no longer available.  I am glad I have her, she is my favorite image to use for female graduation cards.  I colored her to resemble the graduate.  The back ground is the starburst technique using pretty scraps.  I added a punched border, pretty ribbon & flower in her school colors, and a black rhinestone swirl.  I hope she likes it as much as I liked creating it for her.

More graduation cards to come!

Operation Graduation

So, we are two weeks away from Graduation and I feel like all I do is make cards and send cards!  I only ordered a small amount of formal announcements so I made my own picture ones for far away friends.  
I then made all my "boy cards". I kept it simple.  I used a subway art I printed on the computer.  I matted it in their school colors and added a Jolee's graduation hat sticker.  Clean and Simple.  Now to make all the cards for Jarek's close friends here....I am thinking a shaker card....
