Hip Hip Hooray!

i couldn’t be more proud of my daughter for earning her second degree; this is a spinning graduation cap tag i created to attach to a gift for her graduation party.graduation spinning cap tagi painted the lawn fawn smart cookie stamp graduation cap with my favourite black watercolour paint from sennelier and purple paint for the tassel then used the coordinating die.

i die cut two lawn fawn stitched circle tags: one from the spring fling paper pad and one white cardstock for the back that i stamped with ‘you’re one smart cookie’ from the smart cookie stamp set.

the slide on over circle die set was used for the interactive element; i stamped the sentiment from the tiny tag saying birthday stamp set, and layered with three pieces of yellow foam to create the channel. some of the foam needs to be trimmed from the edges to allow room for the penny/disc to move and spin the cap as it travels along the channel.

i’m playing along with the current LAWN FAWNATICS CHALLENGE 54 – PERFECT FOR PARTIES.

This Is Huge

i made this card for my daughter, who i’m so proud of; she’s worked hard to reach a goal that will enable her to continue her studies because she was way above the cut off mark.

i painted this happy Art Impressions stamp, appropriately called this is huge with twinkling H2Os and also painted the background after i stamped the hero arts stamp and heat embossed it. i used one of the sentiments on the front and the other on the inside – you did it!
