Starburst Sayings Graduation Card

starburst-graduation-card2

My nephew is graduating from high school in Franklin, Tennessee, and my son-in-law is graduating with his MBA from Boise State this month.  Unfortunately, I’m missing both! Instead, I opted for foot surgery!!

Since I didn’t make it to the graduations, I sent these note cards with a little spending cash.

The Starburst Sayings stamp set and Starburst Framelits are retiring this month!  Seriously!  Pout-pout! But you can still get them together in the money saving Starburst Sayings bundle.

The large starburst is stamped in Real Red and the smaller starburst is embossed in gold.  A little black and white washi tape behind brings it all together.

I’m obsessed right now with mixed media art.  I’ve been watching lots of video tutorials and can’t wait to get back upstairs to my craft room to try out some of my newly studied techniques.  I’ll share some of my favorite videos with you soon.

Actually, I’m just art obsessed!  Recently, I purchased a couple of oil paintings from a friend who’s an amazing, award-winning artist.  Check out her website: http://krystalbrownfineart.com/

20 Washi Tape Thank You’s in a Jiffy

Label Love Gee Thanks Washi Tape Card www.stampingjulie.com
I always need a stack of thank you cards. But lately the need has been even greater. So many friends have helped me as I’ve prepared to move. I’ve had friends come over and help me do a bit of painting, cleaning and packing. Not only was their help wonderful for getting a lot done, it also was just GREAT to have the company and moral support. When I was a kid I used to beg my sister to just come sit in my room with me while I cleaned.  I’m a social cleaner, for sure.

I love to find a design that’s cute AND fast.  Washi tape came to the rescue on this note card.  I started with the note card pack of precut cards and envelopes.  And the Gingham Garden Washi Tape comes  as a pack of these three patterns that harmonize together.  Just tear off three strips and adhere for an instant colorful design.

And four punches really amped up the quick and fun factor.  I stamped ‘Gee, thanks’ from Really Good Greetings and punched it out with the Modern Label punch, then punched the end with a corner of the 1″ square punch.

The punched sentiment was layered on the base stamped with the Label Love stamp and punched out with the new and coordinating Artisan Label punch.  The center was decorated with a scallop circle punched from Whisper White cardstock spruced up with the Gingham wheel.

I used the same Gingham wheel to decorate the envelope flop for a coordinated surprise.  Don’t you just love getting a note card with a decorated envelope?!  Not much chance it will be mistaken as junk mail when you embellish the envelope.

Simple Summer Silhouette Washi Tape Birthday Card

summer silhouette one in a million birthday card with envelope www.stampingjulie.com
Another clean and simple (CAS) card today inspired by a card by Joan Ervin and the new Epic Day This and That Washi Tape. And since it’s Joan’s birthday, I made it a birthday card.  Happy birthday, Joan!  The blossoms are stamped from the Stampin’ Up! Summer Silhouette set and the clever saying is from the One in a Million stamp set.  On the inside I stamped the continuation of the greeting.

I think this ‘that makes you one in a million’ birthday wish is so genius paired with the greeting on the front of the card!  It makes me wonder ‘why didn’t I think of that’?I stamped the blossom in Calypso Coral to match the washi tape on the front.

I lined the envelope with Calypso Coral pattern paper from the Tea for Two designer series paper.

I stamped the front of the card with Black StazOn and extended the stem of the longest blossom with the fine tip of the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.  Then I added the washi tape and layered the front of the card on a Whisper White card base.
