Introducing School Time: Cards For Teachers & Students

Today I have two cards to share using the School Time stamp set.  I'm sure it will be evident in no time at all, but I adore bold, bright colors so school themes have always appealed to me. These images bring the scent of fresh school supplies to mind.  Maybe it's the nerd in me, but I seriously can't resist taking in the sweet smell of a fresh box of pencils, crayons or pink pearl erasers!

For my first card I inked up my background using a mix of Festive Berries and Fired Brick Distress Ink and then stamped over the top using the same fired brick ink with the apple image in the set to create a patterned paper of sorts.



To form a base for my design, I stamped the notebook paper image three times in pale blue ink and fussy cut them.  I then stacked it with the ruler image which I airbrushed with my Copic marker.  The pencil and apple were also colored with copics.  As a finishing touch I added a coat of Glossy Accents to make my apple shiny.


My next card focuses on the crayon image.  With my love for bright & happy colors, crayons in rainbow colors hold major appeal for me (and of course there's something special about a fresh box of new sharp crayons, right?)


I colored them in with my Copics and then heat embossed my sentiment on a black semi-circle which I layered the crayons around.  For the bottom of my card I used Doodlebug's Petite Prints patterned paper and another airbrushed ruler.


Here's a look at the full School Time stamp set used for both of today's cards (available for purchase on September 8th):


Thanks for hanging with me today.  :)
