Back to School

Posted on

My grand kids are getting ready to start a new school year next week.  I’ve taken them each out to lunch and shopping.  Tomorrow will be time to finish my grandson’s shopping and getting a haircut.  Over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog the theme for this week is Back to School.  I made each of the kids a card to wish them a successful school year.

I recently got Tim Holtz’ Hipster stamp set and the matching dies.  For Hailey’s card I used the ostrich:

For Tristan’s card I used the cat, I figured starting middle school makes him a cool cat:

I had fun coloring the hipsters and then cutting and layering the pieces.  I used a school-themed paper pad from my stash to create the backgrounds.  I used Ranger Enamel Accents and embossing powders to add color and shine.

Thanks for stopping by my long-neglected blog, I’d love to know what you think of my cards.
