Nancy McKinney for the Whimsical Wishes line and is a full-sized stamp set containing 26 images. It's great for graduation events! I used it to create a graduation card and box ensemble.
Restoration Collection by Crate Paper. I started by stamping the circle image and die cutting it using the Plain Circle Nestabilities. Then I die cut a circle to fit inside the word circle and mounted it with foam adhesive. I stamped and cut out the graduation cap and added it to the focal piece. If you look closely at the red cardstock in the background, you can see I used the one side of the Stars Impression Plate on it. To make it show up a little more, I added some dark red ink to the plate before running it through the machine (also known as the Letterpress Technique).
Star Box. I created mine to be 3 inches tall. It's perfect to fit a little graduation gift, like a gift card, or (for those really lucky graduates) a key to a car! LOL I used the Star Impression Plate on the box as well. I stamped and cut out stars to add to the box. I stamped the "Congratulations GRAD" onto green cardstock and die cut a tag. The tag was die cut using the Favor Frame Die.
Nancy McKinney and contains 23 images. It has a coordinating die set called Apothecary Jar Dies. I started with some papers from the Stella Rose - Gertie Collection from My Mind's Eye. I stamped the sentiment onto Buttercream cardstock and die cut it using the Frame It Up 1 Die. Then I stamped a jar from the set and stamped one of the fillers in the jar. I die cut the jar using the Apothecary Jar Dies and colored the image using Copic markers. I added some glitter to the colored fruit as well. I used the Leafy Branch Die to add some leaves to the card and used a white gel pen for the faux stitching .
