Day 4 of the Want2Scrap/Glue Arts Spring Into Summer Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!

If you are looking for the Inky Antic's blog hop, please scroll down one post. ;)

Today is my day to post on the week long Want2Scrap & Glue Arts blog hop.
I hope you have been checking out the wonderful projects the designers from both teams have been sharing. If not, head over to the Want2Scrap blog for the complete lists.
Want2Scrap will be giving away $100.00 worth of gift certificates, and Glue Arts will have some awesome goodies up for grabs as well!
I needed a graduation card for the son of one of my girlfriends, so I made a grad card with W2S bling and glued it all together with Glue Arts adhesives. The image is an old 2010 Penny Black stamp but it was the only grad stamp I had that would work for a guy. I used watercolors to color it.

Here are some of the supplies I used....

And...here is my card.

The numbers in "2012" are from Want2Scrap's - Chipboard Alphabet- Stylish
I used Art Glitter - Designer Dries Clear Adhesive and  Purple Passion Ultra fine glitter to color the numbers.  
The Black Rhinestones are also from Want2Scrap.

The cardstock is Brilliant White, Classic Purple Prismatic, and Intense Yellow Prismatic from Discount Card Stock.

I used Glue Arts - Glue Glider Pro with Extreme Tack runner to attach paper to paper, and their Adhesive Squares to adhere the chipboard numbers.
I stamped and colored the image twice, fussy cut one of them and attached it with an Action Wobbles from Inky Antics, so it wobbles when you move it. :)

I hope you will check out the rest of the Want2Scrap  and Glue Arts team members who have created projects to share with you today. 
Here is today's line up.
And me...Trudy Sjolander

To be eligible to win one of the prizes, you must leave comments on both the Want2Scrap blog and the Glue Arts blog.

Thanks so much for hopping by!

I would love it if you left me a little Love before ya go! :)
