Graduation Card

Next week, my hubby and I head off to our fellowship's Pastor Convention. At the end of the week, a girl I have known since she was just a baby will be graduating from Bible School and so I needed to whip up a card for her. My inspiration for the card layout came from Prairie Paper & Ink.

For the card, I used Q&Co pearls, the Honey Cake 6x6 paper pad from My Minds Eye, a Studio G cling mount stamp for the sentiment stamped in London Fog Memento Dew Drop ink. I also cut the sentiment out with my Cuttlebug, using the Spellbinders Label One Die set.

Random Information and some cards.....

Hello All, I hope that you have found me from my original blog at While I liked my blog name for a while, this new name and new blog represents a verse and name that I felt from the Lord. I will continue to share crafty projects as well as some organization, DIY and home decor posts.

I have been doing a lot of crafting lately, as well as working on a picture wall in my spare bedroom. The main craft project i have been working on for the last 2 months is scrapbooking the last 30 years of pictures for my mother, to include everything she had in old albums (everything had to come out - the old albums were eating through the pictures) as well as framed pictures. I am about 80 to 90 layouts in and still have a loooong ways to go. When I am done I will photograph some of my favorite layouts to share with you. If you are in to scrapbooking, I highly recommend "The Adventures of Glitter Girl" series on the Two Peas in a Bucket channel on you tube. She goes through a number of different techniques and explains everything she does with great clarity. It has really helped me stay inspired as I work through the various photos. In addition to sharing some favorite layouts, I also will be sharing a post on how I organized all of the photos and how I decided to create the various scrapbooks that will be the new home of all of the photos.

Tonight I have a couple of cards to share that I've been working on over the last month. 

This first picture is a card I made a few weeks ago, but then I was pretty much on my back from a nasty virus for two weeks, so have just now been able to get it photographed and edited. The image is from one of the sets that I have from the UK craft magazine, PaperCraft and colored in with Spectrum Noir markers and sharpers. i added some prima flowers with a WeRMemoryKeepers brad. The papers are various scraps from a DCWV paper pack.

These next cards came out of the two Magnolia Stamps that I stamped with a Memento Tuxedo Black dew drop ink pad and then colored in with Spectrum Noir markers and Sharpees. For the first card, I used papers from a Basic Grey PB&J 6x6 paper pack. I used Spellbinders scalloped circle dies on the inside and outside of the card, as well as white pearls from Q&Co. The sentiment is from a clear Studio G stamp. I originally was not pleased with the marbled look that the imaged stamped, but it kind of grew on me, so I left it. I glued the image down on the white scallop and then used foam adhesive to give the card a little bit more dimension.

For the pink card, I used a DCWV paper pack with colors that coordinated with the Magnolia stamp image I chose. Like the green/blue card, I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Dew Drop ink pad and then colored in with Spectrum Noir markers and Sharpees. The embellishments came from a WeRMemoryKeepers brad pack, Making Memories clear flower button, Making Memories pastel pink brads and Q&Co clear gems. The sentiment is from a foam mounted Studio G stamp and the die cut papers were put through my Cuttlebug with the Spellbinders Label One die set and a border punch from EK Success.

I also put together a graduation card for a girl that is graduating next week from Bible School. I've known her since she was a baby, which makes me feel a bit old. :) I will share that card in a separate post as I do not have the supplies list close to me right now.

I hope that you are all having a blessed week!
