Hello everyone...it's day three of the Taylored Expressions April Sneak Peeks and I have two fun graduation projects for you today!! My Granddaughter Autumn graduates this June so I was really excited to see the new graduation stamps and dies...I can't wait for you to see my projects but first I want to remind you that Release Day is tomorrow...yay!!! That's right...tomorrow, Thursday, April 7, at 7:00 AM PST (9:00 AM CST). Tomorrow is also my Mother's 96th birthday so it's a double special day!!!

My first card features the Picture Perfect - Celebrate Die...it was cut out of red patterned paper and adhered to the background paper. The super cute Grad Grumplings Stamp and Die Combo image was colored with Copics, cutout with the coordinating die, and popped up with foam dots.
The sentiment from the same set was stamped on the Oreo cardstock Let's Talk Edger 1 diecut with Versamark and embossed with white opaque embossing powder. To finish it off, the diploma was cut out of Sugar Cube cardstock and patterned paper with the Little Bits - Diploma die and popped up with foam dots.
