Graduation and Birthday

 My nephew graduated last week.  Yes, it's that time of year!  I wanted to do something different and so I got out the SAB designer papers and used his school colors of blue, black and white as a base.  This card is made with the Blue Ribbon stamp set, which is an incredibly versatile set.  I love using it.  One of the great things about it is that you can use your punches to punch out the layers of the ribbon.  Yes, I did hand-cut the lower portion of it.  I kept this card simple because it was for a boy and they don't like all of those pretty ribbons and bows.  Wow, is that hard to hold back on the accessories!  Anyone else experience that?
And this card is for another nephew whose birthday is coming up.  Same type of card base, this time using Island Indigo and Summer Starfruit.  Isn't that DP versatile?  I love how many colors I can use it with!  The washi tape was really fun to play with and it's not ribbon, so my nephew won't hate it.  :-D  I spritzed the birthday bomb with my gold Spritz, which is now a retired accessory.  Sorry!  I do love this stamp set.  It's one of the photopolymer stamp sets that Stampin' Up! has available.  I'm hoping that they switch all of the stamp sets over to this lovely stuff! 
This is also a very clever set!  Love the words on it.  Lots of them are applicable to the adults in our lives. 
Yes, Stampin' Up! didn't get into the clear stamps very quickly, but that was because they were looking for a material that would support their intricate designs and not rip or fall apart.  They've found the perfect material here.  Very sticky and nice and thick to give you a great stamped image.  Here's a link so that you can see what sets they have available exclusively in the photopolymer material.

Thanks for stopping by the Stamping Station once again.
