My Sheri Crafts #157



You got it!  Graduation Day is fast approaching with the end of the school year.  Design Team Sister, Glenda, asked us to create a graduation card or any project that is school related for the newest challenge over at My Sheri Crafts


Here is my take on this challenge.   The graduation cap is a cut I've had as an SVG file and I can't remember where it came from.  I popped up the top part of the cap for some dimension.  I made the tassel from DMC cross-stitching floss.  The colors are royal blue and yellow, the middle school colors where my daughter is currently attending... and leaving as she is in 8th grade. "Congratulations Graduate" is a stamp that came from a set of rubber occasion stamps.  The diploma is just 2" of rolled up printer paper and the ribbon is also a DMC floss.  The printed paper is from DCWV and I used a Fiskar photo corner punch to hold it in place.


Here is a second picture with a matching envelope.  The color is a bit off on this one

*Card size 4.25" x 5.5"
*Envelope size  4.5" x 5.75"

My right arm is still in a cast but that's still not going to stop me from crafting!  Design Team Sister, Marge, asked us to create a birthday card with a matching envelope for the newest challenge over at My Sheri Crafts



Since I still have very limited use of my right arm (my writing hand at that)... I have to keep with simple projects.  I don't think you can get simpler than this card.  The paper is from DCWV, flowers from Michael's, trimming from Charlotte (previous Design Team Sister), and the "Happy Birthday" is a $1 stamp from Michael's.

I broke my arm!  That's right, but that's not going to stop me from participating in the newest theme challenge over at My Sheri CraftsSince Mother's Day is nearby, Design Team Sister, Sandy, asked us to make "something girly." I have limited use of my right arm right now so I had to make something simple. 




These are gift card covers with a matching purse to hide them in instead of an envelope.  Really, I just wanted to use up scrap papers which I now have a drawer full.  The bag cut is from Cricut cartridge: Bags, Tags, Boxes & More.  The trimmings for the first 3 purses were given to me by former Design Team Sister, Charlotte.  The last one is from Michael's Crafts.  The rest of the embellishments are from my stash and yes... I have to use those up too!


*The cards are 3.5" x 2"
*The purse are 4" x 4.5" x 1.75"

According to Design Team Sister, Sarah... April is National Humor Month.  Well why not?  April does have April's Fool Day and Tax Day... hee hee!  She had asked us to create a humorous card for the latest My Sheri Crafts challenge


My friend is turning 40 this month so why not make an "over the hill" card?  Well not quite.  I did use the traditional colors from the "over the hill" theme of black, silver (or gray), and white.  I made the card shaped into a "40" and made a cut of the word "forty" ... as if it wasn't obvious enough.  Both cuts were created with *SCAL


So here you have the twist... I printed the label "Happy 29th Birthday!!! (again)" on my computer and used a Spellbinder die cut to frame it.  The green flourish is a Cheery Lynn die cut and the roses are Quilted Creations die cuts


I decided to make another card... a simple one.  I found the image of metallic colorful shot glasses from the internet and printed it.  The words were printed from the computer and then I slapped them all together in different layers

*Both cards fit an A2 envelope
*SCAL: Sure Cuts A Lot

Easter is just right around the corner and THAT is exactly what this next challenge at My Sheri Crafts is all about!  Design Team Sister, Sue, asked us to make a card to celebrate Easter that would feature a cross, bunnies, or eggs


I found this adorable bunny cut in Cricut Design Space and knew I just had to use that to make a shaped card.  The eggs are also from Cricut Design Space and I used Stickles to decorate them.  The leaves are from a Sizzix die cut.  The various flowers are from different Fiskars punch except for the large lilac and large pink colored ones. 

 
Here you see how it opens up.  I welded two of the bunny's base cuts right at the ears and used the second base layer to line the inside.  Another different flower... can never have enough of those and I definitely didn't want to use any flowers of the same kind.  "Happy Easter" is a stamp and I colored over the black ink with a pink glitter pen... made it look a bit sloppy though.  Oh well!
