Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #5

I love this weeks Stampin' Celebration Inspirational Challenge! The colors were just so great! I focused on using Tempting Turquoise, Basic Gray, Whisper White, and Basic Black in the ensemble I have to share with you! Since it's Graduation season - I focused my projects around celebrating our graduates!

Starbucks gift card holder (card and/or $$ tucked inside). Wrapped the card with Whisper White Satin Ribbon to keep it closed rather than add adhesive or something for an enclosure! The tag was die-cut using the Big Shot and the Lots of Tags 4-Pack of dies!

Inspired by the Bag w/ Scallops die, I didn't have the die, so I created my own! Inside is a little cellophane bag filled with die-cut and punched out images! A perfect hostess or graduation gift! The stamped flower image I used is from the Embrace Life stamp set, which is on the Last Chance List of stamps that will no longer be available after June 30th!

Happy Graduation card! My pennants were made with the Scallop Square punch, then I trimmed them into 'triangles' with my Paper Snips! The die-cut 'grad' letters were cut with the Billboard Decorative Strip Die out of Whisper White Textured card stock! CLICK HERE for a quick Tutorial on how I made this card!
