Ink to Paper May Release Countdown Day 4

Welcome to the 4th and final day of the Ink to Paper May release countdown! Everything will be available for purchase tomorrow, May 15th, at 10 PM ET! I have two cards to share with you today and first up is this graduation card using the new Feathered Friends 12 stamp/die set. I mentioned the other day how I really wanted to put a graduation cap on the owl, and today I did! ha ha!

Confession time: I was SUPER intimidated by this little owl because he/she has quite a few steps, but I was thrilled to discover how easily everything lines up! In fact, this particular bird ended up being one of the easiest in the series and I love how it turned out!

As you can see, I used the leaves from the new Into the Blooms leaves that were showcased on Wednesday! I'm seriously obsessed and I just can't seem to stop using them! They are the perfect perch for this little owl clutching his diploma, which is from the Go-To Gift Card Holder: Congratulations Graduate die

The cap and tassel are from the Hats Off stamp set. I chose this hat in particular because it is just the right scale for this wise owl! The sentiment at the top is from the new Say It Essentials stamp set.

My daughter is graduating this year so she has a lot of friends who she will be congratulating and this one will be perfect for one of her male friends!

My last card for today and for the release uses the new Perfect Pair: Essentials stamp/die set. This one is similar to the Commodities set that was showcased on Wednesday, but this one is a little bit more "handwritten" and the other one is more of a script. They are both so much fun!

I chose a playful design to highlight the font of the sentiment using the new Summer Seashells dies that were showcased on Tuesday! This card is very similar to the one I made using the shells on Monday, but I had so much fun with the inky background!

The shells are inked up using Distress Oxide inks as well as the backgrounds!

I added some dew drops to give it some watery detail! Thanks for fluttering by!

Just love your beautiful cards and your seashells are so pretty! I’m very close to the beach and picking up seashells has always been a favorite for me and my family. My hubby and I have kept a few over the years that we’ve dated on the inside of the shell. Wouldn’t that be wonderful to find shells just like your’s?! 😊🐚
