Masculine Graduation Card for Kylie’s International Blog Hop

I love a good challenge, and Kylie has one for us at the Kylie’s International Blog Highlight May 2017, where the theme is “Masculine” card.  I needed a  graduation card & really like the message this card sends!

Here’s what I came up with:

I love the colors of this card!  Soft Suede & Soft Sky, with a bit of Sahara Sand.  And the textures!

 

These sets are retiring and I’ll miss them!!  It’s always hard when Stampin’ Up! comes up with their RETIRING LIST!!  But I have to admit, I love the new catalog that will be available in June!

RETIRING ITEMS FROM THIS CARD:

Hurry & shop if you want any retiring items!!  Once they’re gone, that’s it!  You’ll find some great sales, too!  Hostess code this month is ZUQUTYX7.

Oh the Places You’ll Go

I’ve been playing around with Shaker Cards this month!  After seeing the globe on today’s Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Challenge, I reached for my set, Places You’ll Go!

Places You'll Go Create With Cheryl 3

This set would be perfect for graduation, retirement, even to give to a new Stampin’ Up! demonstrator!!  I know the past 5 years I’ve been a demonstrator have been much more than I anticipated!

Pokemon Go Punch Art!

It’s my kid’s fault!!  I’ve gotten caught up in the latest craze…Pokemon Go!

Last week my 2 daughters & I were in Charleston, SC, making wedding plans for my daughter, Jenny, who will be getting married there in 3 months!  None of us had ever been there and there are so many details to planning a wedding!  We had a lot of fun, but it was very stressful!

So…to de-stress, we’d walk over to the park across from our hotel & try to catch ’em all!! The park was LOADED with Pokemon!  And also loaded with a crowd of people staring at their phones walking around.

So when I decided to make a Punch Art Card for the Stylin’ Stampin’INKspiration Team, I knew just what I wanted to make!Pokemon Punch Art Createwithcheryl.me

This little guy is called Octillery.  To make him, I used my Owl Punch & cut out a few shapes from Flower Fair Framelits.  Then I stuck on some shiny Enamel Shapes.  Pokemon Punch Art Createwithcheryl.me2In the background you’ll see By the Shore DSP embossed with little white bubbles.

Here’s a picture of the inside:
