Wise Owl Graduation

I needed a graduation card and knew a few elements I wanted to incorporate for sure:

  • The "A+, Good Job, ..." stamp from the "Take a Spin" stamp set (121937 w / 122015 c)
  • The "Go confidently in the Direction of your Dreams" stamp from the "World Play" stamp set (120308 w / 122270 c ) 
  • The owl

After much debating on colors and layout I am very satisfied how it turned out.

Materials used:
Stamp Sets: Take a Spin (121937 w / 122015 c), World Play (120308 w / 122270 c )

LOVE Heart Box

Here is another box I made using the new Framelits dies "Hearts Collection"(125599):

For the top and the bottom heart I used the biggest die which is the scalloped heart. The red glitter heart is cut from a smaller die from the same set. Using Sticky Strip (104294) I attached some ruffeled 5/8" Organza Ribbon (114319) to the glitter heart. The rose was made from the Fancy Flower Punch (118073). The sentiment is "Outlined Occasions" (126014 w / 126016 c) from the Sale-A-Bration promotion that is currently going on.You can earn it for free if you place a $50 order. 

Strawberry Box

Hi everybody, I know it has been a while and a new post is way overdue. Well, it's about time to get going on some last minute Valentine's projects. I just love, love, love the new Framlits that SU introduced in the  2012 Occasions Mini.  Inspired by Lynn Pratt's idea I came up with my version of a Strawberry Box:

The hearts were cut out with the new Framelits dies "Heart Collection" (125599). The top heart is embossed with the heart embossing folder from the "Adorning Accents" (125601). Both from the new Mini.
The leaves are punched from the 5-Petal Flower punch (119880). For the chocolate I covered some Chocolate Chip card stock with Versa Mark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The sentiments are from retired stamp sets.

I have another box for which I will post the pictures tomorrow, make sure you stop by to check it out.
