Mason Jar Congratulations Centerpiece:

Step 1:  Select desired pieces from Core’dinations Paper Pops pack.  These packages come in a varitety of styles and colors for any celebration.  You will need 6 pieces of two sizes to create ornament shapes, plus two larger shapes for the title.

Step 6:  In order to keep your embossing pattern consistent throughout your longer projects, you can cut a slit in the top of the folder allowing the paper to slide through.  I love this technique for embossing longer strips.

Graduation Card

A special time in one’s life is graduation day.  The preparation leading up to this event is enjoyable by all families.  Ava here to share a card for my niece who will be graduating and the school colors are red, white and black.

Instructions:

Step 1.  Die cut a few labels from Spellbinders, emboss, ink and you have a multi-layered card.

Step 2.  Tearing Core’dinations Cardstock for a distressed edge is my favorite technique.  Here I used Tim Holtz and  Ranger Distress Collection,  Fire Brick Red Cardstock.

Step 3.  Heat embossed my sentiment in black ink and stamped my star’s in Red, Clearsnap Colorbox Ink.

Step 4.  Layer the label die cuts with foam squares from Tombow, add some rhinestones and a bow.

I am ready from Graduation, are you?
