I Love School

Hello, my friends! Hope your week is going well so far. =) Here is a card made using one of the stamps from the Back 2 School collection from Whiff of Joy Stamps.


This image is called I Love School. I can't say that I would say that when I was in school. LOL! But I think she is a cutie. =)


She is stamped on Copic X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers. The image is then cut and embossed using a Petite Ovals Small die. I masked the girl then stamped the Late 1800's Script Background from Purple Onion Designs over it with antique linen distress ink. The piece is then inked with the same ink when the paper was still in the die. The sentiment piece is made the same way only that it is cut and embossed using a Labels 18 die.


The yummy patterned paper that I used is from the Stella and Rose Gertie collection by My Mind's Eye. The blue green piece is punched with the Doily Lace Edge punch and the sentiment is from the No. 1 Teacher set also from Whiff of Joy Stamps.

That's all for today. Have a happy day! =)
