Grad Time!

June 28, 2009

This weekend was grad weekend here in Sakatchewan. Therefore I got busy making a couple of cards! I must say I wasn't sure how this cards were going to turn out, but at the end I was actually quite happy with the end result!

I used a couple of Digi Images I purchased from "The Greeting Farm" Grad Anya and Grad Ian. I really like this Digi stamps. They are NOT expensive and you have can have them and start using them right after you pay and download them! No waiting for the mailman! Beside that, the images can be sized any size you want them, from really tiny to huge, with out loosing quality at all! I wish the were a lot more of this stamps availabe!

Recipe for these cards:

Stamps: The Greeting Farm, Grad Anya and Grad Ian. SU sentiment from "Tazzel Time" and computer generated sentiment.

Paper: SU Basic Black, Riding Hood Red and Whisper White. DP from 7 Gypsies.
Ink: Tim Holz Distressing Inks, Black Soot and Fired Brick. C
opic Sketch Markers R20, R27, R29, R59, E000, E00, E29, E30, E37, E39, E99, C1, C3, C5, C7.
Embellishments: Ribbon from Wallmart, Black Brads, Oval Nesties, Cuttlebug Folders, foamies numbers and tazzel made by me.

I was also busy doing a couple of GRAD PHOTO SHOOTS! Those were fun, and my very first ones! A great learning experience! Here are a few of the pictures I took.

Tomorrow is Father's Day, so of course I had to make my VERY special Dad (Father in law) a card to celebrate the occasion! I used this lovely image that I got in one of the Splitcoaststampers' swaps I take part on, it is so . . . much fun! Dad as a good farmer of course loves his tractors, so a card with a tractor was a must!

I used SU chocolate chip CS for the base of the card, and also SU Riding Hood Red and Ceartainly Celery. Also used Tim Holtz' distrees inks in Red, Green and Brown to distress the edges, I LOVE those distressing inksm they are amazing! The sentiment comes from the SU Set, "For Father", the DP can't remember where did come from, also used some brads and the image of course was colored with my lovely and awesome Copic Sketch Markers!

Have a great weekend everyone and THANK YOU for your visit!
