Fantastic Graduation

Exciting news…. Penny Black is showing sneak peeks of their new upcoming release on their blog!  For the next two weeks you will get special previews of the new stamps and projects from the designers.

Today is a proud day for followers of Mimi.  She is graduating!


An extra cap, hair bows and a diploma make fun layering accents for added dimension.

The banner from Sweet Wishes is the perfect size to hold the sentiments from the new Word Express set.  The combination of phrases you can make with this set is endless!

Another fabulous transparent set is Puzzle Parts.  These borders transition from fun to elegant as you will see in another sample tomorrow.  For this card, two of the designs were stamped with Memento and VersaFine inks on Penny Black’s Mix & Match Papers to create festive patterns.

To personalize the card for the recipient, the graduation year was added to the upper right corner.  Numbers from Kate Text were inserted in the rectangular stamp design from Air Mail.

TIP/HINT:  Adding a bit of stamped paper to the inside of the card is a quick way to form a pocket to hold a special celebratory gift of money or a certificate.

A little hint for tomorrow’s sneak peek – Silhouette!
