This is the season of graduations.  I thought I would try and make some different types of graduation cards.  This Blog Hop is for “The World is Yours” - Close To My Heart’s National Scrapbooking Month special paper.

This card was made with the Paper Pal Series of thin cuts and stamps. There is the Base Z4265, Girl Z4266, Boy Z4267 and Pets Z4268 or you can get the bundle of all of these and save 10% Z4269.  There are still Sports, Princess and the Castle to complete the set of Paper Pals.  Using these Paper Pals, you can really customize your card for the person you are celebrating.   I used Archival Black ink Z3271 and the Water colors Z3132 and the water brush Z3224. I used Espresso ink Z2829 for the stamp from the World is Yours and the Gold Shimmer brush Z3316 over it. The shimmer brush shows up much better in person than in the photo.

Close To My Heart has great instructions for making cards, 12 x 12 scrapbook pages and all sorts of sizes of albums. Instructions come with the workshops as well as the How-to Books.   I love the Volume 4 Card book Make It From Your Heart and used Pattern 8 for the next card. I used Gold Sequins Z4198, Espresso ink Z2829 and the stamp set from The World is Yours. I used our embossing powder.  I have our New England pigment ink and used the Clear Super Fine Z2067 and I used the Versa Mark pad Z891 with the Princess Gold Z2066 powder.  The All purpose Mat Z2045 can take the heat of the heat tool Z4252 to get the powders melted. 

I use the Versa Mat Z1279 all the time because it is so versatile.  The spongy side is great for stamping and the other size is a self-healing mat.  I cut the bike with a utility knife to get the finer cuts as the front is a self healing mat. 

This last card is also make from Volume 4 and is Pattern 20.  This card used the stamp set from You’re Awesome Workshop your Way card kit G1184. I also used the Espresso ink again with Mink Twine Z4221.
