CASology - School

The challenge this week over at CASology is to create a card using the cue word "School".  Since I don't have little ones....or big ones for that school anymore, I had a bit of difficulty with this one.  But, it is a challenge, so I accepted the challenge and gave it my best shot.

I know...not my best work...but it IS school related!  The books and apple were cut with the Cameo (have I mentioned that I love my Cameo?!)  I cut several of each image and glued them together to get more dimension.  Then I added just a small touch of Copics white paint (love this stuff).  The tag was generated on the computer, added a few dots with a blue pen, then cut the tag with a Spellbinder die.  The panel behind the books was embossed with a SU embossing folder (it made me think of lines on a chalkboard).  

That's all for right now. Hop on over to CASology and check out the other fabulous cards!   Hope to see you again soon!  As always...thanks a million for your comments...they are much appreciated!  Until next time....


Pin It!

These back to school cards have stumped me. I never thought of sending back to school cards and don't quite know who to send them too. Hmmm! I've evidently missed something. I love your stack of books and the bright, primary colors are perfect. I got my Photoshop and it's loaded. I'm hoping for some uninterrupted time this weekend to figure some of it out. Thanks for your recommendation.

Susan, this card is so pretty! I love it. So many people are raving about the Cameo. I guess this could be on my Christmas wish list! What are the biggest pluses of the Cameo?

Thanks for adding Anonymous, Susan. I hope it doesn't harvest bushels of spam.

My favorite of your weeks' work is the card with torn flowers.It's solid proof that you've got the artist genes right to your fingertips. I'm gonna CASE it to try and figure out why cards I case always look like kindergarten art projects. You can make torn paper look like art and I make torn paper look like torn paper. God is telling my I'
m just supposed to be grateful artists like you share their work.

Your scrapbook layouts are always such fun because they have LOTS of photos.
