Back to School

Happy Friday everyone and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Today will be a day of catching up on stuff around my home. I had a busy week with my grandsons and then some other things.

It is also my turn to post on the Great Impressions Blog today. Our theme the entire week is "back to school". The design team has been showing some great samples. Take a minute and drop by and take a peek. We are showing some new stamps as well.

My card is using the large school bus (F505) and the circle framed alphabet(K83). I decided to create a little scene for my bus. I colored the bus with prismacolor pencils and gamsol and then cut it out. I added glossy accent to the headlights and the tire centers.

To assemble my card, I started with my cloud background. I punched a scallop circle and used it as a template and sponged with bashful blue ink to create the clouds. I used a die from PaperTrey ink to cut my rolling hill. The trees are cut from some Stampin-Up patterned paper.

I stamped the alphabet circles and used a circle punch to punch them out. I then layered my scene on my card base.

Well that's it for me today. Just a reminder that Splitcoaststampers is having a virtual stamping night on September 21 & 22. It's a back to school theme. I am one of the hostesses so I hope you will play along. Get more info here.

The new stamps we have been showing all week will be perfect for all the challenges.

Until next time.......God Bless.
