Splitcoast Challenge - IC234

The Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers yesterday was Crate and Barrel. I chose to use one of the pieces that they used in the original challenge. I immediately loved the colors and wanted to create something based on this piece. Here is the inspiration for this card.

I got to use my new 2 Step Bird punch from Stamin' Up. I've been really wanting to use that punch! I created the leaves using Basic Black and Sahara Sand leaves glued together. The sentiment is from my computer. I created some sentiments that fit in the large oval punch in MS Word and just printed them up on Whisper White paper.

Here are the details:


Certainly Celery
Basic Black
Sahara Sand
Whisper White
So Saffron
Real Red

Graduation 2010 - Go Graduate!

I made this card for a relative who is graduating from High School this year. I used SU My Digital Studio Go Graduate Plus stamp set for the front image panel.

I tried black on black ribbon and it was too much black so I tried it with the white ribbon and I am much happier with that combination! The thing that makes this white ribbon work is that it is sheer so you can see the black through it.

Thanks for checking out my GRAD card!

Here are the details:

Basic Black
Whisper White
