It's Graduation Season!

I have two cards to show you today but before I do that let me give a warm welcome to two new followers:
Kara Lynne
and Hannelie

You might know and already follow these inspiring card artists but if not, please take the time to meander through their blogs and be amazed!

Graduation season is upon us in these parts of the world and I have a niece and a nephew graduating from college this year. The colors for both colleges are blue (slightly different shades) even though they go to very different schools. Because of the color scheme and because I used stars (I'll take any excuse to use stars, hehe) on both of them they look pretty similar.
First the one for my nephew which is slightly more CAS:

Stamps: My Favorite Things (sentiment strip)
Dies: My Favorite Things (graduation cap), WPlus9 (stars), SSS (smallest star)

And this is the one for my niece:

Stamps: Inkadinkado (numbers)
Dies: My Favorite Things (Congratulations, cap), WPlus9 (stars), SSS (smallest star)
Other: Sizzix (star embossing folder)

Challenges (click on the links for more information and lots of inspiration from the DTs and the galleries):

CASOLOGY week 248 "Commencement"

The Male Room Challenge #60 "Stars"

CAS Mix Up May Challenge "Splattering"

Hope you find time to create and have fun!

Be well,

Beide Karten sehen richtig Klasse aus und werden mit Stolz entgegen genommen werden. In Deutschland wird ja nicht so ein großes Ding drum gemacht, was Schade ist, denn es ist ein großer Lebensabschnitt der erfolgreich zu Ende geht.

Beide sind super geworden! Da freuen sich die Empfänger bestimmt! Mein Neffe wurde heuer auch fertig, aber er macht dann noch weiter. D.h. auch in Zukunft kann ich meine graduation Stempel benuetzen..

Wonderful designs Susanne. Even though they have very similar images and colours, they look totally different with the mix of techniques. Your niece and nephew are going to love these cards! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! xx

Hello, my friend! I did some catching up on IG, as blogger has been eating my comments (grrr....), so I'm holding my breath that this one will stick! Two outstanding graduation cards to celebrate your niece's and nephew's accomplishments. Stars: perfect! They'll adore these made-special-for-them gems from Aunty S, as do I!
