Hello there peeps,

I'm sharing a graduation card today that I made using my university's (University of Colorado at Boulder) colors - Black, Cream and Gold. I am graduating this year and in May I will get to do the graduation ceremony! yey! Of course, I'll be making more cards for some of my school buddies I have met through the 2yrs I've been there. I'm so excited, my parents are coming as well for the ceremony, it's seriously just around the corner! We are the Buffs (short for Buffaloes, our university's mascot), hehe. I really like the card, it's so fun and school like, the colors go so well! Congrats also to Tenia Nelson, my fellow Buff, who is also graduating this yr as a graduate student! Yey Tenia!

Sponge Stamping Technique!


Thanks!
Originally uploaded by CloudsShadler

Hello peeps
A card here today, I made this card last night, I really like the idea of a silhouette created by sponge stamping (not sure if that's how you refer to the technique but it works for me :) Last night I watched Ashley Cannon Newell's vlog, click HERE, and she bought this paper that had a butterfly silhouette on it and I thought, well that seems pretty easy to create, so I did. All I used was ink, sponge dabber, and a butterfly punch. Studio Calico has done a tutorial for this technique using glimmer mist but the idea is still there, click HERE. I just thought it was very neat, and it turned out quite well! I'll be using this more often! Would you? Let me know! Anyhwhos, I hope yer wk is going well so far, this wk went by so fast!

On another note, when you leave a comment you'll notice that I set the procedure back to having a word verification, and that's because I started having some weird spam on random post as comments, and it's just a pain having to go back and delete them all, bummer but sorry :(

Hey there peeps,

A card here for you, this wk I survived the wrath of school- 3 exams in 3 days, insane and quite frankly I've been sleep deprived since Sun :S Sorry I haven't been around much but these past couple of days. Anywhos, on to the card, I could totally see this card on a coffee table in a beach house in the Hamptons, hehe. So summer, tropical like, don't you think? Lately I gotten some cute stamps from PTI, so hence my card, I gotta play with all of them :) This card uses the Embellish Mag colors- Light Blue, Light Pink and Kraft, I also used a couple stitching as part of the challenge :)
