I’m popping in today with a reminder of Double Trouble’s Challenge using a School Days Theme while teaming up with the sketch provided by Try Stamping on Tuesday, if you include a bookmark on your card you get extra points with Twisted Sister and will stay out of detention!
Here’s the Sketch we had to use:
I borrowed both the You’ve Got Class and School Kids stamp sets from my friend Debi…I love both of these stamp sets! They are available for just a few more days as the You’ve Got Class special ends at the end of September. You can find all the details here.
I rotated the sketch (nothing says you can’t do that) and stamped a strip of Willow with the ABC stamp and the Lemon was stamped with the ruler. Everything was built on a base of cranberry (retired) which I stamped my “Back to School” sentiment. The little girl was stamped and colored with Copic Markers, die cut and I added a mini-clothes pin and attached it to the string…she also is my bookmark!
I hope you’ll give both of these fun challenges a spin…I’d love to see what you come up with.
“School days, school days
Dear old Golden Rule days
‘Reading and ‘riting and ‘rithmetic
Taught to the tune of the hick’ry stick”
It’s September, mom’s & dad’s everywhere are breathing a sigh of relief…school has started! It also means that over at the Double Trouble Papercrafting Challenge we’ve got a School Days Challenge happening! Twisted Sister (that’s me if you haven’t figured it out yet) challenges you to include a bookmark with your project and the final challenge issued by Thing 2 is to link up with this fantastic sketch from Try Stamping on Tuesday!
I kind of new what I wanted to do – even borrowed my friend Debi’s stamp sets, but when I sat down at my desk I went a completely different way, but that only means an opportunity to put together another card right?!
I started with a base card cut from Ballerina CS – don’t you love the soft pink? The measurements are 5.5 X 10.5 – scored it at 4.25 and then I used my Tonic Perforator tool at 2 inches from the right side for the bookmark.
I then used papers from the recently released Boutique Paper collection to put together my sketch. I have a niece starting college this year and I wanted to drop her a note to let her know that we were thinking of her and to have a great year.
Don’t you just love this new Close to My Heart Stamp Set – My Type of Note. I think I learned to bang out letters on a typewriter that looked really similar.
I hope you’ll consider popping over to the Double Trouble Papercrafting Challenge…my teammates and I have a really fun time with this blog challenge and it would be fun to see your artwork linked up…you even get a chance to win a “bag of things” and I promise it’s not Thing 1, Thing 2 or Twisted Sister, but some really cool things!
