First Day of School

First Day of School Card

It’s that time of year–time for back to school!  In fact, today was the first day of school for my kids!

Close To My Heart’s August Stamp of the Month, School Year,  is the perfect stamp set for the start of school, end of school and everything in between!

CTMH August Stamp of the Month School Year

For this card, I stamped the pencil image in between the stripes of the Basics Paper Fundamentals and colored them in–that was the longest part of this card! The best touch while coloring in the pencils was using our Metallic Markers to color in the metal rim of each pencil.  It really added a nice touch to it.

The rest of the card went together super quick.  Here are the supplies I used to create the card:

  • School Year August Stamp of the Month (S1708)
  • Black Stamp Pad (Z2805)
  • Cranberry Stamp Pad (Z2816)
  • Basics Paper Fundamentals (Z3353)
  • Goldrush Cardstock (X5962)
  • Cranberry Cardstock (X5975)
  • Sapphire Cardstock (X5957)
  • White Daisy Cardstock (1385)
  • White Twine (Z3216)
  • Metallic Markers (Z1768)
  • ShinHan Barely Beige Marker (Z2445)
  • ShinHan Marigold Marker (Z2457)
  • 3-D Foam Tape (Z1151)
  • Thin 3-D Foam Tape (Z2060)

50% off Halloween Crafting Supplies

Monstrous Halloween Card

Today is Tuesday…which means it’s another new week of 50% off deals with CTMH’s Warehouse Sale!  The items this week are all perfect Halloween crafting companions.

Monstrous Halloween Stamp Set + Thin Cuts dies

There’s this super adorable Monstrous Halloween Stamp Set and coordinating die set for only $13.48!  Crazy!  I love this set and have used it so much.  And since it was one of the 50% off items this week, I whipped up this card using it along with our *NEW* Basics Fundamentals.

CTMH Basics Fundamentals Paper

It’s always fun to change up your patterned paper simply by stamping on it.  And that is exactly what I did here with the striped paper.  I used Goldrush ink to stamp the swirly border and Black ink to stamp “eek.”  I really like how it turned out.

Monstrous Halloween Card

For the “window”/shaker part of the card, I used our 3″ x 3″ Flip Flaps.  These work amazingly well for this purpose and are generally overlooked as they are most popular for using with scrapbooking and adding extra photos to layouts.

Side View Monstrous Halloween Card

The other fun tip I want to share with you is what I put inside the Flip Flap along with the monster and the sequins.  I lined the inside of the Flip Flap with a used dryer sheet to give it more texture–sort of a web look if you will.  It’s pretty subtle, but pretty fun, too!  You should never underestimate the things you have lying around your house!

The final touch that is a true “must” with this Monstrous Halloween Stamp Set is to add wiggly eyes.  It adds a whole new dimension to these monsters.  In a way, it brings them to life!

So remember, these Warehouse Deals are while supplies last.  And truthfully, these deals are so great, there’s the perfect timing with Halloween right around the corner AND this set is just too stinkin’ cute.  They’ll be gone before the week is over for sure.  To get your 50% off Halloween deals, visit my ONLINE CTMH STORE right away!
