Hello my crafty friends!
I am back hopefully with some regularity now.
I have missed everyone tons and am glad to be starting to get back to a regular schedule again.
If you follow me on Instagram you will already know that Simon Says Stamp graciously sent me three items from the STAMPtember release before it was released.
I would like to thank Simon Says Stamp and Heidi Crowl for being so kind.
Here is the first card that I made using two of the items that I received.
I had know idea that yellow was a very difficult color to photograph.
To make this card, I stamped and white heat embossed the school bus from the Back to School stamp set in a random pattern on the background of the card base. I also stamped the bus on a piece of scrap white card stock. On this bus, I colored it with the Zig clean color real brush pens. I used black, grey, light blue and yellow. When the bus was dry I fussy cut it out. I also stamp and colored and fussy cut two clouds from the stamp set. I cut a strip of black card stock and with a white gel pen added a white dash line down the middle to make a road for the bus to ride on. I adhered all of the pieces with foam squares to the front of the card and then die cut my letters using the Alphabet Block die. I adhered the letter with liquid glue.
Here is a closer look at the card:
See what I mean about the yellow compared to the previous photo. Just driving me mad. I retook this photo 8 times and this as close as I could get with the colors.
This feels really good to be back creating on a daily basis again.
Here are the goodies used to make this card:
