OK so on to my project !!
Now, I am not really in that Back to School mode. My son is almost 3, so its a few years before I have to deal with that (that God hahaha). But I had a lot of fun coming up with a fun School Themed project ! I didn't have any school-ish stamp sets, so I did one of my FAV things !! Punch Art !! Take a look at the cute apple card I came up with !!
Isn't that sweet !?! And it was SO easy to create !! I used one of the circles from the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out my Real Red apple. Then the top of the Full Heart Punch gave me the "bumps" on the bottom, and the 1-1/4" Circle Punch clipped out a part from the top !! I used my Paper Snips to round the corners, and that was it !! SO easy right ! I then wanted it to look a bit more "realistic" so I sponged the apple with some Gumball Green ink so that it had that "red with a green tinge"that so many apples have. Love it ! I used my 1/4" Circle Punch to create my leaf as well. Love how the fun apple turned out !!
I was SUPER excited to use my new Alphabet Press embossing folder for the first time on this card !! I mean, whats more school than that ?! I also used some fun vintage products - my much loved (aka will never leave my stamp room in a MILLION years) Family Reunion set for the "for my teacher" stamps and the fun Spiral Border Punch for that stamped piece. Cute right !?! Love how this card turned out ! Now, I just need to hold onto it for a little while until Jack has a teacher to give it to !! LOL
Well thats is for me today !! Next on our stop is Tiz !! I can't wait to see what she's come up with !! Thanks a lot for coming by the Hop today !! Have a good one and Happy Stamping !!
