GRADUATION & BEYOND BLOG HOP – Stamp Simply Clear Stamps

Welcome to our Graduation & Beyond BLOG HOP today. We have many projects to share showcasing two of the sets in our NEW April Release – Graduation Sentiments and Scripture for Graduation & Beyond. With these 2 sets your options for cards for so many types of celebratory and congratulatory events are limitless. Combine them with images, sentiments or Scripture from our other sets and the sky is the limit!

I made 2 cards, one with each set, and I’ll show you those first, then on to the link list with more projects to inspire!

Be sure to scroll all the way down to the LINK LIST!

Fairie1 540x399

This card uses Scripture for Graduation & Beyond – a set that is dear to my heart.

This set has uses far beyond graduation, offering scriptural encouragement to cover so many situations and life occasions.

The beautiful paper used is Fairy Garden by Kaisercraft.

And YES, that pink paper is all sparkly – gotta love Kaisercraft!

Fairie2 540x385

This is the inside I created. Simple, but pretty, with beautifully scripted font.

This card is 5 x 6.5″. I had envelopes this size and as the Kaisercraft pads are 6.5″ in size, I always like to use the entire width of the sheet and not waste any of the gorgeous pattern.

Supply List:

Paper: Fairy Garden by Kaisercraft

Holder1 540x427

This is a gift card holder that I’ve created so often, using our Graduation Sentiments stamp set.

I combined two stamps for the card front and used a tassel on the side.

Holder2 440x581

Here you can see how the card functions.

Using a 1/2 sheet of paper (5.5 x 8.5), score at 2″ and 6″. Fold. The 2″ flap becomes the pocket, while the larger flap becomes the top. Add your sentiment panel to the top flap and you are done! This is always a quick make that I enjoy for gift cards or money.

Holder3 540x442

I stamped a sentiment above the pocket. Tuck in whatever you like!

Holder4 540x412

Here it is closed and ready to go!
