Taylored Expressions - Little Bits Diploma and Sky High Rocket

HI Everyone!!!

Today I am excited to show you some cards that I have made using mainly dies and the same sentiment stamp "Congrats Grad" from the stamp set Grad Grumplings! For my first card, I created a little scene using the Eventful - Graduation border and the Build a Scene Rolling Hills dies and Swirly Clouds dies

Here is a straight on view of the card. The Eventful - Graduation border is a straight border, but I cut up the different grads and put them around the card in different places on the hills that were placed on a sponged clouds background:

For the sentiment, I stamped it into two colors and then added a little sponged diploma using the Little Bits - Diploma die (isn't it just the cutest diploma ever!? :D .... I just loved how this turned out !!

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Grad Grumplings stamp set from Taylored Expressions
Premium Cardstock: Cherry Pop, Oreo, Peapod, Granny Smith, Lemon Meringue, Salt Water Taffy, Sugar Cube
Inks: Memento Teal Zeal, Distress Inks: Broken Glass, Cantaloupe and Dandelion
Taylored Dies: Eventful - Graduation BLittle Bits – Diploma, Build A Scene: Swirly Clouds and Rolling Hills
Accessories: Best Glue Ever, Foam Dimensional Tape and Corner chomper

For my second card, I used the Sky-High Rocket dies to create this circle card for a graduate to inspire them to shoot for the stars :) I loved assembling the cute rocket and added a glaze to the windows as well and stickles to the stars (cut out from the Reach for the Stars border die)

Here is a closer peek at the card - I love how glittery the stars and the fire is from the rocket looks! I was thinking to give this card to my son who will be graduating lower school soon and entering middle school! (aaaaghhh!)
