Good morning! Many of you are still sending your kiddos off to school, and I've got another card to share with you celebrating the whole back-to-school thing. For this one I used one of the CAH-UTE sets release this month at Peachy Keen Stamps. PK-126 Smartie the Owl is such a great set for so many wonderful cards and layouts, and I think he's just as cute as he can be!
Everything used to make this card comes from the August Peachy Picks Kit, and I especially love the faux Polaroid frames that are included with this kit. What a fun idea and I can't wait to play some more with them. I've seen some of our PKS designers use them to create little scenes, which is really cute, too. I stamped Mr. Smartie with Memento ink and colored him in with Copic markers, adding texture by whisping the ink for the feathers and dotting the ink for his cute little round belly. It doesn't show up so well in the photo, but I put some glossy accents on Smartie's glasses to make them extra shiny and add some dimension.
I'm really missing my Granny today. It's really odd how that hits one at what can be the most inopportune or unexpected time. I've got so many wonderful memories of her, and each time I open a cabinet and see her handwritten note or recipe that she has taped inside, it brings a smile. Sometimes tears, too, but always a smile. I hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday filled with only smiles and LOTS of happy stamping! Have a blessed and beautiful day!
