Retro Rubber Challenge #70 - Back To School
Hello everyone and Happy Thursday! I hope everyone is well. It's been a crazy week here. Ruy and I had a photo exhibition last weekend at the Belle Epoque Cultural Center here in town, which we did as a benefit for a charity. It was nicely received and was a great feeling to see everyone's reactions to our photos. I will try to get a post done this weekend about the show. Of course afterward, I got sick for a few days, but am finally back up and running. Today is Brasil's Independence Day so everything is closed and I finally found some time to do a new blog post.
Yes, 2nd post about "back to school". This time for the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog -
I started with a piece of white cardstock. Using some washi tape I taped down the "Numerals" stencil (TCW200S) by The Crafter's Workshop. Next, using a mini blending tool (Ranger) with some inks from Reverse Confetti (Piggy Bank, Salsa, and Bumblebee Yellow), I applied the colors through the stencil.
I removed the stencil and heat set the inks (just to be safe). Then I used an alphabet stencil from StencilGirl Products and applied some Aqua ink (Reverse Confetti) to a few of the letters, also using the mini blending tool. Heat set again (just to be safe). I then die cut this using the large stitched rectangle die from the Bundle of Stitched Shapes (Simon Says Stamp).
After this I pulled out a stamp set called Book Border (SSC259) by Stampendous. I have owned this set for YEARS and it has never felt the touch of ink to it's polymer skin. LOL
So I inked the row of books and the phrase and stamped it on a piece of white cardstock. I die cut it with a stitched rectangle die I own and colored it in with Sharpie markers. I then adhered it to a piece of red cardstock.
Lastly, I adhered this to the card front.
That's it. Done! I think this would be a great card for a teacher on the first day of school. As a thank you! I hope you enjoyed this project. Let me know by leaving a comment below. Thanks and until next time -
