Make Your Dreams Happen Graduation Card

Sunny Days Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Today's card is fun and simple to make.  I think it would make a great graduation card.  Simply stamp your Lemonade Stand from the Sunny Days stamp set and color with watercolor pencils or markers or a combination of the two.  Love the childlike sun and lemonade stand!  And the font for the sentiment plays well with the picture images from this stamp set.

Sunny Days Stampin' Up!

I made my card base with Lemon Lime Twist Card Stock (retiring).  It's a splendid color to pair with the Lemonade stand and sunshine.  To add a bit of texture and interest, I embossed the bottom of my Card base with a Petal Pair embossing folder.  For a final pop of color, I let a few Gingham Gala sequins skip across my card front.


Retiring Stampin' Up! Craft Supplies

The Sunny Day Stamp Set, the Petal Pairs Embossing Folder and Lemon Lime Twist card stock and ink are all only available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST or June 3, 2019 (whichever comes first.)  Scoop Up your must-have retiring Stampin' Up! crafting supplies before they are gone.   For your convenience, I've listed all the supplies for today's card below.

Expectant Mother Cards

Wonderful Moments Stampin' Up!

Hello Friend,

There's just something sweet about Expectant Mother cards and I love the pregnant mama stamp in the Wonderful Moments stamp set by Stampin' Up!.  We love to send baby cards, but why not send a handmade card before the birth of the baby?  We are expecting a new grandson in June, so this card will be mailed out to my sweet daughter-in-law, Bethany.

Pregnant Mama Card Tips

Everything is white except for a few accents to highlight the pregnant mama.

The added texture from the Ruffled Embossing Folder and the stitched rectangle bring the white to life.

Hint:  When coloring the mama, leave just a teeny bit of white to highlight her baby belly.


Wonderful Moments Stampin' Up!

Most of today's card supplies will be carrying over to the new Stampin' Up! Catalog, but the Ruffled Embossing Folder and the Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon are on the Stampin' Up! 2019 Retirement List and will only be available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.  Want to make this card?   For your convenience, I've listed all of today's cards supplies at the bottom of this post.

Color Throwdown

Thanks to Color Throwdown for today's playful color combination of orange, yellow and blue.  For accents, I used Calypso Coral and Pineapple Punch Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.  Night of Navy is my feature color.  I colored her dress Night of Navy and, just for fun, I added a bit of Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon.
