Stampin' Up! Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop ConGraduation! Congratulations!


Hey there! It's Stampers Dozen Blog Hop day! Welcome to the April installment of the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop, ConGraduation, Congratualtions!

You may have just come from Stella MacKay's blog, Stellar If you did, you saw Stella's awesome creation! If not, you can start here and follow the blog around to all 12 blogs this month, ending with Stella and then back to me! Just follow the link at the end of this post and you will be on your way!

My project today follows the ConGraduation, Congratualations theme with the Pure Gumption stamp set from page 52 of the Annual Catalog:

I created the kite by punching one straight pennant from the Petite Pennants Builder Punch and one triangle from the triangle punch from Silver Glimmer Paper. I added narrow strips of Basic Black cardstock for the struts of the kite, White Baker's Twine for the kite string, and tiny Silver Glimmer hearts punched with the Owl Builder Punch.

I used my custom-made cloud embossing plate for the clouds. You can see how to make your own cloud plate HERE. I sponged my clouds with Soft Sky ink.

The greeting is from Pure Gumption, stamped in Jet Black StazOn ink and cut out with a Word Bubbles Framelit.

Inside is stamped very straighforward with more stamps from the same set. Pure Gumption is a one-stop stamp set for graduation/congratulations!

Thanks,ladies! Cathi, I'm so glad you mentioned the caps. That is exactly the effect I was going for! Thanks again!


I love how your caps on the inside of the card seem to be going up in the air just like the graduates' caps when they toss them in the air!

Great job Carol!
