Congrats Grad Trio - Simon Says Stamp Born to Sparkle Release

 Hello! Popping by this evening with a few first cards to share with you using the BRAND NEW Simon Says Stamp Born to Sparkle Release ! I'm starting off with a set of a few graduation cards - right on time for the season! My oldest is actually graduating this year (so crazy how fast that day arrives!) - so I was definitely in the mood to create a few of these cards using the awesome new Class Act stamp set!

I traditionally think of black graduation robes most often - but thought it would be fun to shake up the colors a bit, and do some different color combos. I stamped these three cards using Schoolhouse Red, Blue Jay, and Hot Mama inks from Simon Says Stamp.

For each of these, I stamped the sentiments over the top in black, and then heat embossed the diploma in white on black, fussy cut out, and adhered on my card front.

I also added a few splatters of black with my Pinkfresh Studio Licorice Liquid watercolors, then matted those panels with gold cardstock, and then black cardstock.

Before mounting with foam on my cardbases, I added some thin strips of black cardstock, just to give some interest and dimension to the backgrounds. I used different angles on each card as well for a bit of variety!

This release is amazing - there are so many fun things to check out! Click HERE to check out the release, and check back on Thursday and Friday (my day!) for the epic blog hop to celebrate! Happy Shopping!
