Pick It Up A Notch Challenge #2

Hello All

I am a few days behind with posting my challenge because my Dad was here visiting from Chicago. Now that he is gone I can get a little stamping done but I really do miss my dad being in the house with us.

The challenge is very easy and simple. I have made two identical cards one card will be easy and simple and the other card I will make some type of change to the card where I have Pick It Up A Notch. I love for you all to join the challenge as well and when you do please post here on my blog so that I can share with everyone. If you don't have a blog and post it on Splitcoast please use keyword putais02.

With graduations right around the corner I have chosen to make graduation cards:

Card Details: Card A On The Left
Cardstock: Brilliant Blue, Summer Sun and Ultra White
Stamp Set: Year after Year and Hugs and WishesInk: Brilliant Blue and Summer Sun
Accessories: Dimensionals and Stamp-a-ma-jig

Card Details: Card B On The Right
Cardstock:Brilliant Blue, Summer Sun and Ultra White
Stamp Set: Year after Year and Hugs and Wishes
Ink: Brilliant Blue Craft Ink, Summer Sun Craft Ink, and Clear Embossing Powder
Accessories: Dimensionals, Gold Brads, Mat Pack and Stamp-a-ma-jig
Technique: Paper piercing

No Stamping At All

Yes, you heard right there was no stamping at all involved in designing these two cards. These two cards were used creating the confetti simply scrappin kit. These kits can be used for scrapbooking or card making as I have done.

Card Details: Both cards were designed using the old olive textured cardstock. The confetti designer paper with the stripes and polka dots. Each card I used one of the stickers that comes with the kit.

Absolutely, no stamping at all involved.

I love my new card size which is 5 x 3 1/2.
