Untraditional Celebration - Theme Day Graduation Hop

Hi! It's that time of year again, graduation! In many households, May is busier than December with graduations, teacher appreciation, etc. IO is here to help you with last-minute graduation ideas!

**Affiliate links used when possible at no charge to you!** 

I gave my graduation cards an untraditional look.  I used a distressed ink background from my stash and stenciled an Open Balloon.  Then I stamped inside the balloon with one of the stamps from the Textures set.  The sentiment and stars are from Reach for the Stars.  


Next, I liberally sprinkled Brusho Powders on water-resilient cardstock. After it was dry, I added the Celebrate die cut.  


Previously seen on this blog, is a traditional graduation card featuring:

Peel Better Soon

This week at SCS, we are embossing or stamping on patterned paper for the Free 4 All. On my card, I did both!  I used the lovely Citrus Colors Paper Pack for my project.  I cut and embossed a panel. I then stamped the orange and the leaf. The images and punny sentiment are from the Sweet Citrus stamp set.

You can find sensational new products at IO, here.


 We hope you will stop by SCS and play along!  Thanks for stopping by!

Dare to be Different - Product Focus - Stencils

Hello!  The IO Product Focus this month is stencils! I am showcasing the Open Balloons stencil for a fun celebration or encouragement card. I like the idea of giving this to a graduate who dances to the beat of their own drum! The sentiment is from the Reach for the Stars set and stamped on a Rounded Rectangle Layer. Lastly, I stamped balloon strings from the Birthday Hugs stamp set.

Happy Place - Day 2 IO May Release

Hello and welcome to day two of the May Impression Obsession Release!  

For a look at all that's new at Impression Obsession stop by HERE

I had so much fun with the Lazy Days Swing stamp set. I thoroughly enjoyed using the little images to create a scene.  The flag is printed with an American Flag or you can stamp a clear flag, paper piece, and make your own which is what I did here. Even though I am not great at fussy cutting, I stamped, colored, and cut a tiny finch, then placed him on the sentiment! I used the Stars and Stripes paper for a fun summer look. 


For this next card, I used the beautiful Grungy Dots Background stamp(Don't hesitate to order the background stamp if you love it as much as I do!  It will be available only a short time). This fantastic cat is from the new Book Lover set by Nola Chandler.  I just love this set.  I will be using it for all my book-lover friends! I made two tags from the new Tattered Tag. For the sentiment strip, I cut a strip and then stuck part of it in the tag die to get the fun tattered edge!

Hello friends!  Welcome to the May Impression Obsession Release Hop & Giveaway. This month has zesty products, birthday products, and much more! 

For a look at all that's new at Impression Obsession stop by HERE

The background for my first project was created using the delicious Citrus Colors paper pack. The Sweet Citrus Die Set is a must-have! I love the items in the citrus set, including the small flower and branch pieces!  The sentiment from the More Sweet Citrus set was stamped on the Deckled Tag Die Set banner. The irregular edges are ideal for nature scenes.



Next, a fun birthday card.  Once again I used the Citrus Colors for the background and inspiration for my coloring.  The fun birthday stamp set is called Can Can Candles and includes three fun images and two excellent sentiments! I also used the Crazy Stitched Set and the Primitive Stars on this card.
