Graduation Card Using Stampin' Up! Handsomely Suited Bundle

One final Graduation card for this summer, and this time I used the Handsomely Suited bundle to make an elegant, gown-themed card!


I made this card for my friend Carter as his graduation party was last weekend. It turned out to be a very elegant card and I even put a little pocket on the inside of the card to hold his money (similar to how I designed these cards).


The black, white and red look so great together! I love the pop of color the red provides in the tie and honor stoles. For the grad cap, I cut a square and then scored diagonally to and from the opposite corners. I die cut some of the buttons in the die set and adhered one to the center of the cap.

  • 11" x 4-1/4" scored in half at 5-1/2"
  • 5-1/4" x 4"

Basic White Cardstock

Poppy Parade Cardstock

Congratulations Card Made with Stampin' Up! Wild Cats Bundle

Today, I'm excited to share a Congratulations card I made with the Wild Cats bundle!


I loved the print on this pattern of the coordinating DSP and used the super fun Animal Print Embossing Folder too! The tiger is stamped with Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze ink.


The "Congratulations" stamp comes from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set. I also added in some Black Twine, Matte Black Dots, and the Basic Borders dies. This card turned out to be so fun and I love using Cajun Craze for something other than fall-themed cards!

Create in Color Challenge 24: Plentiful Plants Thank You Card

Happy Tuesday! It's time for Week 24 of the Create in Color Challenge! This week, I paired the color challenge with the Plentiful Plants bundle from Stampin' Up!


This card uses both the bundle and the DSP from the Bloom Where You're Planted suite - and I love how they coordinate! That hanging plant holder is so cute!!


The colors for this week's Challenge are just perfect for the Plentiful Plants bundle! If you'd like to participate in this week's challenge, make a project using some (or all!) of the colors listed above (or similar hue if you don't have the exact color), and share it in my Facebook Group with #CreateinColorChallenge. I'm so excited to see what you create!


This card was so easy to assemble, too. Just cut some paper, stamp and die cut a few things out and voila! I actually made several of these cards in one go as they are perfect Thank You cards.
