Owl graduation and simply stars

'Congratulations'  was the theme for last week's cards. As you can see I created two very different cards.  With examination results being released shortly I wanted to come up with a special card to congratulate all those students.

For the first card I used the owl builder punch. Isn't he cute? The beauty of this card is that you can customize the colours of the card stock to reflect the school, college or university colors.

The second card uses the new stamp set 'Simply Stars' which includes 4 beautiful stamps.

These make very easy cards, however, the downside is they have to be cut out by hand as there is no available matching punch! I don't know about you but I find cutting out very therapeutic.

Colour combination is Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate

Chevron embossing folder for the background.

I have also used the 'Tape it' stamp set. 'Tape it' is a fantastic selection of 8 washi tape style designs so you can make quick and easy cards in any colour combination. The tape stamps have imperfect ends which look like you have just torn it off the roll!
