So for today’s sneak peeks I’ll start you off with the card I created! It showcases our new Brushed Star background stamp in my favorite color combo… yep, you guessed it… Rainbow!
I started by inking the background stamp with my mini cube inks in Cherry Pop, Candy Corn, Lemon Meringue, Granny Smith, Cookie Monster, and Jelly Donut (my go-to rainbow combination). Then I added Class Of 2017 cut from Oreo cardstock. I cut the numbers again from silver glitter cardstock and placed over the top slightly offset from the black numbers to provide more contrast between the background and the numbers.
I finished it off with the Grad Cap die resting on the number 7 and several coordinating enamel stars in the background. Here’s a look at the new background stamp that I used along with the additional supplies for this card:
We also have a new set of grad-themed products perfect for decorating our Matchbox die. Just slip a little cash inside and create a coordinating card like Keia did on this project and you’ll be all set with the coolest gift at the party (don’t kid yourself… they only want cash!):
Here’s a look at the other products Keia used on her matching set:
Did you notice that the top of Keia’s matchbox is a shaker!? She used the new Little Bits – Grad Confetti to fill the shaker element. And Jean also used the Grad Confetti to dress up our most popular grad themed die from last year’s release, Eventful – Graduation, in combination with the new Block Party – Grad die on this clean and simple card. I can picture this in just about any school’s colors!
Melody also features the Block Party – Grad die on the matching card for her grad gift set:
She designed her coordinating matchbox to look like a suitcase appropriate for any grad packing up to take on the world! Here’s a look at the Matchbox Accessories to help you make your own suitcase:
Speaking of taking on the world, another of last year’s most popular dies released for Father’s Day, now has Graduation sentiments to match. You’ll want to add the new Wonderful World stamp set to your graduation collection and combine it with the previously released Whole Wide World die like Michele did on this card:
Owls seem to be a symbol of graduation day so we also have a new Little Bits critter joining the family this month!
Jean created this cute graduation card topping the owl with our Little Bits – Hats Off die to complete the graduate look:
Last, but certainly not least, we have a new addition to our Initially collection of dies! Numbers, anyone? These large numbers are the same size as our Initially monogram dies making them a great option for banners and cards alike. The numbers go 0-9 (make a note that 6 & 9 double as the same die… just flip it around). Here’s a look at a few projects the gals have created:
That’s it for this release! Before you head off to check out all of the goodies, I have one more chance to win with my last question of the day for this week.
Today I’m giving away the Brushed Star Background stamp!
