Finally! This is a Double Header!
It has been a few months since I have gotten to see my DD and family. Felt like forever! During that time, my GS turned 5 and also graduated from pre-school. I have been hoping to share the cards I created for both occasions.
First up is Brian's birthday card. This was created with printed gaming papers and a stamp set by Pretty Cute Stamps called Game On. I used a pierced oval die to showcase my #5. I added some Glossy Accents to my controller and some green candy dots to go with the paper. The Grandson stamp is from Anna Griffin.
My second card was harboring a gift card for his Pre-School graduation. I asked his mom what color the cap and gown were and she said she thought blue, so I went with it. Turns out it was maroon! Oops. Another fun story with this, is that I sent hubby for the gift card and he came home so proud that he did not buy a plain generic one. He found a Happy Birthday one. Say what? Another oops. So you see, I am glad these are finally delivered.
I cut a stitched postage rectangle die from white card stock and stamped these really cute graduation stamps, I found on Ebay. The little boy was colored with Copic markers, placed back in the die and sponging was done with Tan ink. The papers I used were from a masculine 8x8 pad from Memory Makers called Just Chillin. My stars were cut from navy card scraps and are from Sweet n Sassy Stamps. I added crystal stars as well as pearlized star stick-ons, as accents.
Well, that is my story and I am sticking to it. Two things off my plate, and a fun weekend with half of my family. Good times! Thanks for stopping by.
