Pure Gumption CAS Graduation Cards – Stampin’ Up!

I can’t believe it, but it’s getting to be that time of year!  Graduation is right around the corner so I’m getting my stack of cards started.  I used the Pure Gumption and Oh, Hello stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create two quick cards.  This card is easy to customize to whatever the school colors are…the orange and black one will be going to my nephew in a few weeks!

My card design was inspired by the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge 172 and CAS-ual Fridays CFC130.

Pure Gumption in Midnight Muse

Today I’m sharing a quick graduation card that could be used for a male or female.  I used the Pure Gumption stamp set from Stampin’ Up! for the sentiment and images.  I’d thought about “girling” this up a bit by adding Silver Glimmer Brads, but opted for a more unisex version with the Silver Mini Brads.  I hope that I’m not way too late with this graduation card for you, the kids are still in school for 3 more weeks in Portland!

My card design was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches #87 sketch.

I used the new 2013-15 In Color card stock and inks from Stampin’ Up! to create a graduation card.  I love the color names: Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding…yummy!!  My design was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches #84.  I tried to keep it fairly clean and simple since I need to mail this one.

Feel Goods Happy Graduation Card

The design for my card share today was inspired by the Mojo Monday 289 Sketch.  I used products from Stampin’ Up’s new Epic Day This and That bundle, which is available at a 15% discount through April 30 (click here to see the Epic Day This and That products available in my online store).  I wanted to make a graduation card for my niece who will be graduating from college in a few weeks, but I didn’t want it to be too girly.  This is what I came up with:
