This stamp and die set was made with graduation in mind but the sentiments can work for many more occasions!  And what I love the most about this stamp set is the dies!! They cut out each sentiment, how awesome is that??!

I used only half of the Grad Lollipop Holder Die to make this card.  Remember, these dies can be used for so much more than what they were intended!  I inked up the white die cut around the edges with a light blue ink.  The tassel is a bit darker and I used a gold Sharpie for the accents.

I popped up the grad cap and adhered it to one of the oval dies from the Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies. I added some patterned paper using the largest die from the same set.  I thought it would be cool to add the year to the card, so I used the Number Fun Dies & Add Ons.  I used white cardstock and added the same ink only to the bottom of each number. I die cut them from craft foam for some dimension.

Now let's talk about that sentiment!!  I used two shades of blue ink for an ombre look and used the co-ordinating die to cut it out...I LOVE THIS!!

I had some gold star sequins in my stash which worked great here!! And that's my project for today!!

Keep hopping along for more inspiration!! Here's the full blog hop lineup:
