Hoo Loves School at Sunsational Stamps

Before I share my last post as a DT member for Sunsational Stamps, I would love to extend a warm welcome to Karla and OneHappyMom as my newest subscribers.  I’m so happy you’ve joined our little tribe and hope I am able to provide you with content that will interest and inspire you. 

It’s hard to believe summer will be over soon and it will be “back to school” time.  I decided I would use this cute Hoo Loves School stamp to create a card which celebrates this exciting time, wishing your student an A+ year.

I printed the image on Whisper White card stock and colored it with Copic markers.  For the books, I used the digital patterned paper from Teacher’s Pet Kit by Tracey Howard as my guide for colors.  Using that kit, I printed a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel using one of the adorable prints and matted it (and the focal image) on Basic Black card stock.  To be economical (so I have more to spend on other craft goodies), I cut the smaller mat from the middle of the larger.  And no one knows, but us!  I also filled the three banners with patterns from the same kit.

For a few finishing touches, I used Nuvo Dots in white on the eyes and Wink of Stella on his beak and talons before adding it all to a card base of Peach Parfait.

The cute greeting on the front is included with the stamp.  Inside I created a sentiment with a font I thought would pair nicely.

While I made this owl card to celebrate the start of school, I made another with an owl to celebrate the end of the school year.  You can link to it here if you’d like to see it.

I'd love to hear from you. I so appreciate your comments!
