Graduation Tent Card

Grad Card

   Needed a few graduation cards. It’s that time of year already. Time sure is flying by.  I thought I would start out with a simple card . It’s called a tent card. I made the vertical version of a tent card and wanted it to be masculine. All I did is punch out a square to stamp the Congrats using the Stampin’ Up! stamp set Four Square #111632 The  paper used is Stampin’ Up! Whisper White , Brilliant Blue, And Basic Black. Ink is Classic brilliant blue. I used a brad. Then made my own tassle with some dmc floss. 

It’s a quick card to make and I like the tent card. I found an easy turtorial on this wonderful blog right here. There is a tutorial for both the vertical as well as horizontal tent card. She did a great job with her tutorial and it’s easy to follow.

Stampin’ Up! Has there LAST CHANCE LIST out as well as Stamps sets we have to say goodbye to. You’ll find the information right here . Place an on line order with me and you’ll receive the Stampin’ Up! 2010-2011 Idea book and catalog for free from me once they are released.

Mojo Monday 105 Lovely As A Tree

Here’s This weeks Mojo Monday Sketch


I used the Oak leaves and acorn from the Stampin’ Up! stamp set Lovely As A Tree. And the designer series paper  Autumn Traditions , Soft Suede , More Mustard and Kraft cardstock. Used the 1-3/8″ and 1-1/4″  Stampin’ Up! Circle Punches  I also took some retired river rock ribbon and colored it with the Stampin’ Up! Always Artichoke Classic Ink. I’m thinking the Oak leaves don’t show up very well with this layout. maybe I’ll switch out the image later. I colored in the image with the aqua painter and Stampin’ Up! More Mustard , Ruby Red and Creamy Caramel Classic Ink.
