WOW! I Did It!

This is my Becca Fekan, of Amazing Paper Grace, inspired card. I love how it turned out! It is a wedding card for someone I have known since she was 3. She really can't be old enough to get married, I am not any older! LOL
If you click on Becca's link you can see how the medallion was created. I thought it would be a real pain but it went together pretty easy.

Floral Impressabilities
EK Success Moroccan border punch
Paper Paper Garden iridescent vellum, DCWV Metallic stack and Latte Cardstock stack,

I stayed up very late (or early) until 3:00 a.m. because I finally got in gear to make the 7 graduation cards I needed to make! I have CASEd my own graduation card from the last two years and threw in a couple of new twists that I really like! I do my best to match the school colors on the invitations I receive. Here are my standard cards without any twists using Olivia Cuttlebug font.

I got a little more creative on the girlie cards with a little bling for the button on the top of the motar board and Hippy Chick Cuttlebug font.

Then for my dear friend who is graduating from the University this June, I created his card using a sheet of graduation paper I picked up at Michael's yesterday!

Rubbernecker Birthday Card

My boss's birthday is Thursday so I made him a card. I love the classic cars from Rubbernecker! I even went online to check out "authentic" car colors! I made the card green and white because they are the official colors of the university he attended. Hope your Monday is especially blessed!

Nesties Bird card

I have been sitting on this card so long and forgot to post it! Pun intended! I love how it turned out. I used my Nesties bird die and a paisley die for her wing. I also tried out my some of my crackle paint and new embossing powder that looks like sand.

Some Fun Cards

What you have just witnessed is an attempt to clear out my stash once again! These cards all have one thing in common--jelly sentiments by Making Memories. Since they came in lime green and black I decided to create an assortment of cards. I think they turned out kind of fun. Not sure who I would send the "get over it" to! LOL

Finally! Some New Cards!

I feel like this year is flying by and I am running behind it waving my arms in the air saying "Wait! Wait! I need more time!" I finally made cards with two products I have had in my stash way too long! I am happy with the results-- not the photography but the cards!

I finally used my outline stickers and metal mesh from Amaco! The flowers and leaves are the outline stickers.
