We seem to be getting into the swing of summer, finally. A few weeks ago, it seemed like we were always on the go….mostly with graduation parties. So today I am sharing one of the graduation cards that I created from a while back. The graduate's school colors were orange and black (ewwww!), so I didn't come up with this color combination by accident. It just goes to show, that with the right stamps & supplies, you can make a customized card for anyone and any occasion!
I'm so glad that Stampin' UP! is finally selling Foam Adhesive Strips! These little things make creating shaker cards so much easier. I was always saving the "edges" of my Stampin' Dimensionals for this purpose and now I don't have to! I'm sure if you are a new stamper, that a shaker card may seem a bit intimidating to make……perhaps, I should do a tutorial soon? I find that once you have the basic steps down, it's really makes sense and then you can translate it to all sorts of shapes. I'll get to work on that tutorial. LOL!
You already know how much I love the Confetti Celebration stamp set. Now I want to profess my love for the Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper and the Sprinkles punch. You'd probably never guess that there was anything Pink about this card, but the back of the patterned paper is Bright Pink, i.e. Melon Mambo. I love having the option of basic Black & White patterns in addition to bright, colorful patterns. And that punch…..how great is it that you can create custom confetti? I added metallic sequins and paper confetti to my shaker card…..FUN! FUN! FUN!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
You'll find the complete list of supplies at the end of this post.
