Back to School Bash

The Stamping Bella group on SCS had a virtual "Back to School" bask on Wednesday night. It was so much fun! We had two challenges.

The first challenge (BB2S01) was to make a card using 3+4=7 elements (3 of one thing, 4 of another). I used 3 of Bella's dots and 4 stamps to create my "Circle of Friends" card. 

Stamps: Best Friends Forevah, Fifi, Cuddlycat, and Tutuface by Tiddly Inks for Stamping Bella
Paper: CTMH Orchid Bouquet and Key Lime; ATD Born to Be Wild Stack
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, Copic Spicas
Accessories: Bella's Dots in Glitter Light Lilac, Nestabilities, Taylored Expressions Ribbon, misc. eyelets

The second challenge (BB2S02) was to make a card using school or office supplies. I made this card for Brittany's first day of school. I used this particular stamp because she LOVES history books and has a ton of them in her classroom. I included a daisy because it is her favorite flower, and I have a huge bouquet of daisies delivered to her classroom every year on the first day of school. The brown paper is a lunch bag (she always packs her lunch). The DP is a page from a grade book. The border is a ruler. The daisy stem is a paper clip. The daisy leaf is a Post-it note. The hinge is to remind her not to let the kids make her feel "unhinged." LOL

Stamp: Bookwormabella by Stamping Bella
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, Copic Spicas
Accessories: CTMH hinge and brads; SU Scallop Edge Punch
