Back to School: My first Whimsie Doodle share!

September 3, 2012

in Altered Stuff,Cards

Thank you everyone for the kind words on my last post! I'm totally excited to be a part of the Whimsie team and can't wait to share fun projects with you. I'm kicking things off today with a sneak peak at the NEW releases for September. These images will be available for purchase on Sept 5th...just a few days away! :) I decided to create a "back to school" gift out of some old Crystal Light containers to celebrate the start of the new school year. These would be great to give to your kids on their first day, or even to celebrate the conclusion of their first full week or month. You can fill them with most anything: candy, crayons, pencils, scissors, etc. - possibilities are endless and these can be changed to match any theme or school colors.

The stamp reads "make your mark!" - I colored the pencil with my Copic markers. The apple paper was something I snagged at my local Michael's.

Next up is a fun greeting card to give to a Teacher. This would be great to save for Teacher Appreciation week, or to use around the Holidays. I colored the adorable little school girl with my Copic Markers and used foam adhesive to pop her off the card a bit.

Here's a closer look at the details of the card. The stamped chalkboard background and sentiment are from the School Time and Teacher's Apple stamp sets from PTI.

Be sure to check back on the "What's New" part of the website on Wednesday, Sept 5th so you can grab these adorable stamps. You can also follow the latest on the Blog or Facebook. :)
