People Who Leave A Great Impression On Us

Back to School Week continues

Happy Friday everyone and thanks for taking the time to stop and visit. It's back to school week for us here at the Great Impressions blog. If you have been followingalong, I have a sample to show you. If this is your first visit this week, make sure you look back at the other designer's samples. You won't be disappointed.

My card is using the large school bus (F505) and the circle framed alphabet(K83). I decided to create a little scene for my bus. I colored the bus with prismacolor pencils and gamsol and then cut it out. I added some glossy accents to the headlights and the tire centers.

To assemble my card, I started with my cloud background. I punched a scallop circle and used it as a template and sponged around it to create the clouds. I used a die to cut my rolling hill. The trees are cut from patterned paper.

I stamped the alphabet circles and used a circle punch to punch them out. I then layered my scene on my card base.

Well that's it for me today. Just a reminder that Splitcoaststampers is having a virtual stamping night on September 21 & 22. It's a back to school theme.  I am one of the hostesses so I hope you will play along. Get more info here.

The new stamps we have been showing all week will be perfect for all the challenges.

What a great card. Love the clouds. I will remember that trick. The school bus is so cute and I like the idea of using the glossy accents. Thanks for sharing all your tricks.

I want to sing "the wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round...) Super cute!
