A Graduation Card for Global Design Project 092

I love playing along with the Global Design Project and their wonderful challenges! The designers are fabulous and today I get to CASE one of my favorites, Stampin’ Up! Artisan, Steffi Helmschrott.  She is an idol of mine, I LOVE her style and creations.  So, for Global Design Project 092 | Case the Designer, I went with a graduation card…mainly because I needed one.  Although my graduation card does not do her card justice, it was inspired by her art.  I love her watercolor ‘pencil-sketch’ look and wanted to attempt to have the same feel with my card.  I would have loved to implement the jar into my creation, but I couldn’t see it for a graduation card…and my favorite set to use for graduation is the Number of Years Stamp Set and Coordinating Large Number Framelits.

Isn’t her artwork stunning? The way the bow on the jar looks 3-D just from her shading is amazing…and the jar looking like she hand sketched it…ugh, I have to try that technique.  The elements I CASEd (Copy And Selectively Edit) are the following:

  • Watercolor Shading (around the card elements)
  • Perfect White Accents (same sizes and locations)
  • Banner (Happy Graduation)
  • Striped DSP Mat Behind the Focal Layer

Card Details:

  • Card Base is Thick Whisper White Cardstock cut to 5.5 in x 8.5 in and scored / folded at 4.25 in to make a standard A2 sized card.
  • The piece of Designer Series Paper is from the Pick a Pattern DSP pack.  It had the stripes I was looking for and the color I needed (Crushed Curry). It was cut to 4.125 in x 5.375 in and adhered with Fast Fuse Adhesive.
  • A piece of Watercolor Paper was cut to 5.125 in x 3.875 in.  I stamped the numbers in Night of Navy Classic Ink on the watercolor paper.  I then took an Aqua Painter and pulled some of the color out so that it would create a watercolor shadow to the numbers I would be adding later.  I did the same for the Happy Graduation Sentiment on the left side.  It was adhered to the DSP with Foam Adhesive Strips to give it some extra lift off the card base.
  • I used Crushed Curry Classic Ink for the Numbers and stamped them onto Watercolor Paper.  I then took an Aqua Painter to blend the ink around a little more…I LOVE the result.  I then zipped it through the Big Shot with the Coordinating Large Number Framelits.  I adhered them with the all new Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The Happy Graduation Sentiment is from the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set.  I cropped it out quickly with the Coordinating Classic Label Punch and adhered it with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. I watercolored a touch of Night Of Navy to the outside of the border to add more dimension.
  • Perfect White Accents and the Congrats were added as final touches to the card.

The supplies needed for this card were minimal..and most are a staple in my collection…but then, I seem to say that for everything…it seems if Stampin’ Up! makes a product, it becomes a ‘staple’ of mine.

I add a lot of photos to my post because I believe images are important to showcase the card.  Different angles help the viewer to grasp the makeup of the creation and assist with a CASE of their own.

I was inspired to create this card after seeing a Mother’s Day Bouquet of flowers.  It was a beautiful, bold and bright bouquet that was similar to a daisy.  I had my hubby take a picture so I could reference it when we got home and get to work on my creation. Lemon-Lime Twist and Berry Burst had just been released to Demonstrators and I was so excited because they were exactly what I needed.

The daisy was stamped in Basic Black Archival ink 4 times, punched out with the coordinating Daisy Punch and then colored in with Aqua Painters.  So vibrant and pretty, don’t you think?

The Lemon-Lime Twist 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon as perfect for this card.  You can also get it in Berry Burst if you would rather pull out the bright pink color.  Either one would look fabulous.  The Glitter Enamel Dots were the perfect accent to finish off the card.

A Little Lime With The Lemon Zest Bundle

A Little Lime With The Lemon Zest Bundle

I have to admit, the Lemon Zest Bundle was not on the top of my list…I was going to pass on it until I started seeing all the cute handmade cards and paper crafts made with this bundle.  My mind quickly changed to “have to have”…I am so glad I added it to my collection.

I do prefer limes over lemons, so my creation reflects my taste.  In fact, it’s kinda making me crave a refreshing Gin and Tonic with a squeeze of lime :).  When I showed my creation to my hubby (he is very involved and loves to critique my creations, give me valuable input) he was slightly concerned with the Zest sentiment being used with Lime… I shrugged my shoulders and said that my preference is some Lime Zest, so if it’s not as commonly used as Lemon Zest, I still stuck with the limes.

Card Details:

  • Card Base is Thick Whisper White Cardstock cut to 5.5 in x 8.5 in and scored / folded at 4.25 in to make a standard A2 sized card.
  • A piece of Lemon-Lime Twist Cardstock was cut to 4 in x 5.25 in and adhered to the card base (with no mat area at the top of the card) with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I cut a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock to 3.75 in x 5 in, slipped it between the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and zipped it through the Big Shot.  I then took Lemon-Lime Twist Classic Ink to an Aqua Painter and added color to each of the embossed leaves.   I adhered this piece to the Lemon-Lime Twist with Fast Fuse Adhesive.
  • Lemon-Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon was wrapped around the bottom of the card twice and then tied with a knot.  I wrapped one piece of Old Olive 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon and adhered to the back of the Cardstock with Fast Fuse Adhesive.
  • The limes were stamped in Lemon-Lime Twist Classic Ink on Shimmery White Cardstock.  I then took an Aqua Painter and added a touch more ink to give the Limes some color depth.  The leaves were also stamped in Lemon-Lime Twist Classic Ink but I added some Old Olive Classic Ink with an Aqua Painter to deepen the green hue. I stamped the sentiments with Tuxedo Black Momento Ink on each of the limes, cropped them out with the Lemon Builder Punch and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The cut pieces of limes were quickly cropped out with the coordinating 1 3/4″ Circle Punch.
  • The final touch was added my placing a Green Glitter Enamel Dot in the middle of the circle image.

The sentiments included in the Lemon Zest stamp set are so spunky and fun!  I love the “Chuck Them Right Back” saying…I can imaging grabbing a lemon and chucking it at something…makes me giggle. You can buy the Lemon Zest Bundle in the Clear-Mount option for $34.00! The item number is 145360.
