Teen Scene Back To School

I’ve got some news to share today, a little on the sad side unfortunately.  I’ve had a wonderful time being on the DT for Simply B Stamps and Simply Challenged Challenges but all things must come to and end.  Most of you know that I’m going back to school full time and wish I could do it all while I did it.  Anyway, this will be my last post as officially on the team but certainly not my last post so you can all breath now.  😀  After all, I bought a new spider punch yesterday just for my SBS cards!!  Hopefully I’ll be able to join in one or two of the challenges in between my school work.

For this project I used three Teen Scene images in the front and set them up waiting for the school bus to arrive.  😀  From left to right are Sporty Lola, Book Pile Miller and Teachers Pet Betty from Simply B Stamps.  Then the background image is Post Office from Just Inklined so the scene takes up the entire card.

My kids take the bus to school so this was directly inspired by them and the mingling of various kids at the corner.  It’s so fun to see all the styles and personalities as they come together for those few moments in the morning.  Don’t you wish the whole school day could be like?!

I want to give a huge thank you to Betty and Suzi for having me on the team and thank you to all my team mates for their inspiring projects each and every week!  I’m going to miss being on the team so I’ll have to be sure to join in on the challenges here and there!  😀  Thank you!


Are you ready for some more new releases? Today I get to show off one of the newest Nouveau Girls from Some Odd Girl!! To start with, we’re showing off Dancer! This divine girl will be available in Clear Rubber stamp and she was a beaut to color – so much fun!

(This is my second post for today so you can scroll down or click HERE for my first.)

My project uses Dancer by Some Odd Girl and in the background is Bridge Scene by Just Inklined. I used papers from My Minds Eye and grabbed the color scheme from it. I was even able to use a few colors that were burried at the bottom of the stash. LOL For her dress, I used RV91, RV93, RV95, RV99 with a little N2 and N4 for shading.

I colored the background quickly to give a nice contrast between the two images. I was hoping for a watercolored look but not sure if it worked out or not. Even a distressed ink look would have been a good aim but I still have some practice to do. LOL Either way, I like the contrast between the well blended Dancer and background.

On the journal page I also used some accessory stamps that come with the Dancer. The two circle music note symbols and the sentiment made nice embellishments. The sentiment was stamped then cut out using the Notable 2 die from Whimsy then placed behind the N2 Simple Frame chippie from Make it Crafty.

Thanks for stopping by again today and don’t forget to head on over to the Some Odd Girl blog for more inspiration and even prizes to be won!
