Back to School card

The challenge at Simon Says is Back to School so I made this card for my daughter. I used Papertrey Ink's A Little Inspiration and Black Soot Distress Ink for the sentiment. Versamark, my hand-carved Monster stamp and clear embossing powder over the sentiment and a gold star sequin.

After the Time Travel Stamp-a-faire 2014 at Papertrey Ink this weekend, I've been thinking about tools and techniques I haven't used in a while, so I inked the edges with some Tea Stain Distress Ink. I stamped a notebook page with Papertrey Ink's It's Official and Spring Rain. The cardbase is Summer Sunrise.


It's really my desk lol. Even after Papertrey Ink's Stamp-a-faire 2014. This year's theme was time travel, and each designer covered a different era from Ancient Rome to the 1980's with two different technique videos and a spotify playlist with about 2 hours of music from the era.

At the stamp-a-faire Meet and Greet, the designers were talking about their first papercrafting tools and paper crimpers were a popular item. So I dug mine out, ok it was just in the top drawer next to me (even though I haven't used it for years). My favorite project (which is saying a lot as I kept saying "this is my favorite" as I was working each one) was the Time After Time Challenge and I actually used my paper crimper.

Head over to Julia's Stamping Ground to see more crafty spaces : ).
