Time for school!
This week is the start of school in our corner of the state. There is an air of excitement from the students ready to see their friends, parents ready to get kids back to the routine, and teachers ready for a new start. After 38 years in a classroom, I can truly say this past year was the hardest of all due to the pandemic. Nothing stops the excitement of the first day though! New students, new friends, new routines – a fresh new start for all!
Cute Halloween DSP for the season!
This week is devoted to Halloween projects and today’s card is for our oldest granddaughter Nora. Her favorite color is purple, so the Cute Halloween DSP is perfect! Stampin Up’s color palette this year includes Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather, and Old Olive along with Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black. What a fun and fresh color combination!
The Festive and Bright Bundle – which includes the Festive Finishes dies – adds a fun element with the clever witches’ hats and brooms! Included are stamps and dies for Christmas and fall making this a versatile set throughout the remainder of the year.
Blends provide the finishing touch!
I used our Blends to color the images. Having both light and dark shades for each color gives your work depth and dimension to the details Stampin Up included. Don’t you just love that tiny spider??
Add in a touch of the black glitter paper as well as the adhesive backed star sequins and you have a cute, fun card to bring a smile to Nora’s face. Have a wonderful first grade year Nora – you are going to shine!
Until next time, keep stamping, keep crafting, and God Bless!
