Bravo Way to Go & Tutorial

Hi Crafty Friends!  I hope your weekend was super duper!  Mine sure was because on Saturday, May 17th, the Luv 2 Stamp Group got together for our quarterly meeting.  Lots of fun goes on at these meetings like sharing tips and tricks about Stampin' Up! products, gushing over the new products, swapping, and make 'n takes too!

Since Patty Bennett, our amazing director and fearless leader of the Luv 2 Stamp Group, was going to be away on the Stampin' Up! cruise the week before the big meeting, so she asked me, Cindee Wilkinson, Katina Martinez and Wendy Cranford to help get everything in order while she was away.  Katina and Wendy gave new product demonstrations, and Cindee and I both created the make 'n takes.  Below is my make 'n take--a fun Way to Go Card!  It's graduation season, so I figured this card would be fitting. 

Make 'n takes always feature new products and/or techniques from the new Catalog, so this card features the new Bravo Stamp Set (I earned it for FREE!), 2013-2015 In Colors Blue Lagoon and Hello Honey, the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack, the File Tabs Edgelits Dies, and the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

The Steps ::
  1. Stamp “Way to Go” in Smoky Slate.  Stamp “you did it” in Blue Lagoon.
  2. Using the Project Life Corner Rounder, round corners of top right corner of Smoky Slate card base and Hello Honey rectangle card stock.
  3. Die cut banner using Banner Framelits from Hello Honey striped card stock.  Adhere banner to bottom left of Hello Honey piece.  Adhere Hello Honey piece to card base.
  4. Using Multipurpose Glue, sparingly add two lines of glue to top and bottom of Basic Gray filmstrip, and adhere to “Way to Go” sentiment.  Adhere filmstrip to Hello Honey piece.
  5. Die cut partial tab from multicolor polka dot card stock with File Tab Framelits.  Adhere tab to top left of filmstrip.
  6. Cut banner ends off “you did it” sentiment piece using the Hexagon Punch.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Punch 3 stars from Blue Lagoon card stock and adhere with small pieces cut from the edges of Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  8. Add 3 Rhinestones—1 small, 1 medium, and 1 large—in top right corner of Hello Honey piece.
This card was fun to create and make, and I hope that you feel inspired to make your own graduation congratulations cards.  You might even consider using the school's colors in your design.
