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.
