Last night I looked through my stash for a "congratulations" stamp, and I found three. Being indecisive, I used all three, and stamped 10 images total. You'll see them in a sec. My whine du jour is those freakin' mortar boards. Okay, not the mortar boards themselves, since those are just punched squares, but the tassels - ugh. I made 10 tassels and killed almost a whole pack of the SU white baker's twine, and I
I went back to my standby mortar board image from the SU Tassel Time set, stamped it with Versamark ink onto black card stock, and embossed it with gold. Then I cut out all the tassels. No, I did NOT want to just use those caps - I just wanted the stoopid tassels.

That one is from my new Paper Smooches sentiments sets. I really like it!
Here's another SU sentiment:

I'll bag and tag these later this week for Saturday's market. Oh, the diplomas are just rolled-up pieced of printer paper tied with a piece of SU red & white baker's twine.
In other news, I keep forgetting to tell you I'll be participating in a blog hop on Friday for Hambo Stamps! It's a hop for both their DT (The Bacon Bits - HAHAHA!) and customers. I got in just under the wire. I had a ton of fun making my card, and that's all I'm going to say. :) So make sure to stop by on Friday to check out what everyone did!
Thanks for stopping by!

Look at you knocking out the grad cards. I've got requests for some at the coffee shop, but I have yet to make any :)ReplyDelete
Holy crap! Love these graduation cards! But, ummm, wow...they look like a ton of work! All those mortarboards & teeny scrolls? Ack! More power to ya! ;)ReplyDelete
