Hello and welcome to the Fall/Back to School Blog Hop. If you are just joining our hop don't worry there is a list below off all the hoppers and you can travel around the group from here. I can't wait to see what everyone has made this month.
My first project uses the Herringbone Technique. I have been wanting to try it for a while but have been putting it off. I will be trying it again soon. This card is for that college student that might need a little pick me up those first few weeks away from home. I used Baja Breeze Card Stock and Stampin' Write Marker, Rich Razzleberry Card Stock and Stampin' Write Marker, Whisper White Card Stock and Tangerine Tango Card Stock. The Designer Series paper is the Floral District Paper and is so bright and cherry. The sentiment is from the Word Play stamp set and is cut out with the Labels Collections Framelits after it was stamped. I made the mat piece behind it with a 2 1/2" Circle Punch and a Decorative Label Punch that I added Polka dot texture to. To finish off I added Whisper White 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon. My next project is a gift set for a teacher.
I made 10 note cards with matching envelopes to give as a back to school gift for a teacher. The note cards are in a cute back pack ready to deliver. I really like the idea of using the Note Cards because the envelopes are included and since you get 20 in a package you can make 2 gift sets.
The back pack is made from Whisper White card stock, Daffodil Delight Card Stock and Classic Ink Pad, Floral District Designer Series Paper, Basic Black Card Stock, 1" Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Scallop Trim Border Punch, 1/4" Whisper White Stitched Ribbon, Lovely Letters Stamp Set and Square Lattice Folder
The note cards use Jet Black Stazon and Daffodil Delight since our school colors are black and gold. The stamp set is Just Believe and I kept the design clean and simple. I did add just a little texture with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool. I also added a stamp to the front of the envelope.
I hope you enjoyed my projects for today. I would love it if you left me a comment so I know you were here. Thanks for stopping by and just click on the next button below to continue on your blog journey.
