Celebrate Cap & Gown

My nephew graduated from high school this year and I created this money card (My Favorite Things dies).

They fit the lip balm pouches, which is what the money is rolled in to 

(you die cut an opening in the back and feed the bill out before securing).

If you want to see what it looks like before placing a bill, I snapped a pic here before securing money in it.

My Favorite Things Money Card Dies, Simon Says Stamp Cap and Gown Wafer Dies, The Stamp Market Say it Simply, Brutus Monroe Jaw Breaker Paper Pad (behind money roll), Spellbinders Mini Everyday Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil, Pink Paislee Pick-Me-Up Paper pad, Tonic Studios Satin Mirror Soft Amethyst Cardstock

The sentiments are mixed and matched from The Stamp Market and Spellbinders.

The cap and gown dies are from Simon Says Stamp.

I'm linking up to the two following challenges:

Simon Says (Monday): We Can See Clearly

(clear My Favorite Things Lip Balm pouches)

Simon Says (Wednesday): Anything Goes

Thank you for your sweet visit!

DT INkspirational Moodboard Travel

It's time for another INkspirational Challenge.

 Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Landscape Silhouettes, Stampendous Embossing Enamel, Papertrey Ink Words of Comfort sentiment, My Favorite Things Sentiment Strip, Spellbinders Deckled Rectangle

This time we have a neutral location mood board.

This set the theme for my sympathy card, which was unfortunately needed.

I stamped a landscape image with Versamark and heat embossed with a Stampendous embossing enamel.

I don't know the recipient well, so I went for a simple masculine creation.

 I really struggle with sympathy cards (I empathize so much that it makes me grieve as well and I find it hard to rise from that), so I'll probably make multiples while I'm in that head space.

Please visit our challenge blog and join us with your unique creation~

Red, White, Blue Diaper Pong

I recycled my diaper pong board for a friend's daughter:

Lawn Fawn Magic Iris Sunflower Add-On (number background), Erin Lee Creative number dies, Altenew 3D Star die, Damask Love Don't Go Bacon My Heart (red patterened paper)/Spoon Me (blue floral) Reverse Confetti (out of business) Round Tag 


I punched holes the first time I decorated this board, so I duplicated the placements of the diapers and banners.

My friend originally wanted the party around July 4, so the colors at this challenge are perfect!

Thank you for your sweet visit today~

It's time for a new challenge at Inkspirational!

This time the prompt is Christmas in July~
