Hi Friends,

Do you think this would make a good graduation card or should I go for the more traditional?

I love how this came out.I used the layout from page 38 in the "Originals" card confidence program book. I also used the Free to be me paper pack, which is $5 this month (National scrapbooking month) with a qualifying purchase of $50. you can also get the stamp of the month for $5 with the same purchase. The stamp I used is the Stamp of the month for May 2014. There are 5 really cool images on the set that are similar to this one. If you like the look of chalk board art, these will work really well, I will share some of those ideas later. You can also get the stamp of the month for $5.00 along with the Free to be me Paper pack a nearly $20.00 savings. For the layout I followed the pattern on page 38 of the CTMH originals book. For the hearts I used the stamp set from the skylark WOTG (workshops on the go) and the mini pigment ink hollyhock.and stamped it on PTI basic white card stock. For the "You are the best", I used black ink and then colored it in with the Hollyhock marker pens. I have to say these pens are awesome.  For those of you who want to try them you can order them here. They are $5.95 and you get a set of two they coordinate with the inks and papers. You can not refill them like some others, but at his price, they are a super deal. I am really impressed with these pens. Check out the close up they are very uniform and consistent.

I used a technique with the hearts called generational stamping, that is where you use the ink on the stamp without re-inking it before you stamp on the paper again. That is why you will see some areas lighter than others.  It is intentional.


Have a blessed day, Diana
