Precious Remembrance Shop and Imagine Crafts Blog Hop Day 2

Hello and welcome to day two of the Precious Remembrance Shop/Imagine Crafts blog hop!  Today I will be sharing two cards that I made using the PRS School Days stamp set and lots of fun Imagine Crafts products.  You should have arrived here by way of my PRS team mate Helen's blog.  If you did not, please head to the PRS blog for the start of the hop and the full list of participants.

The School Days stamp set has always been one of my favorite PRS stamp sets.  I just love the cute little school bus and that fun little pencil with the ABC/123.   My first card uses the ABC/123/pencil image.  I stamped the image on some yellow patterned paper using VersaFine CLAIR ink in Golden Meadow and then trimmed out the pencil.  I stamped the sentiment inside the pencil using CLAIR ink in Nocturne.  I die cut some patterned paper using a little notebook die and then stamped the image on the die cut with Nocturne ink.  I then sprayed the piece with Lady Bug and Paris Dusk Fireworks.  A second piece of patterned paper was die cut with the notebook die and then the two were layered together with the bottom one at an angle to the top one.  The patterned paper pencil was then adhered using some foam dimensionals.  I cut a piece of white cardstock to fit my card front and then sprayed it with Dandelion Fireworks and then adhered the layered panels.  I like the clean and simple yet mixed media look to the card.


The second card is pretty simple, as well.  I cut some grid patterned paper and then stamped it with the dotted line image to create some tire tracks using CLAIR Nocturne ink.  I stamped the bus on the same patterned paper that I stamped the pencil on in Nocturne, trimmed it out and adhered it to the grid panel as shown.  I finished off the card by stamping the border sentiment that has the little hearts and says I love school in CLAIR Twilight ink and then added some Tangelo irRESISTible Pico Embellisher.


That is it for me today.  Your next stop on the hop is Imagine Crafts design team member Steph Ackerman.  Don't forget to follow Precious Remembrance Shop and Imagine Crafts on Facebook and Instagram and to leave comments on all the stops on the hop for your chance to win one of two prizes:  Totally and School Days stamp sets from Precious Remembrance Shop or a $30 Imagine Craft gift certificate.
