Wise Guy Card-My Pink Designer August Project

Hi everyone!  I hope you are having a fabulous day!  I’ve been really busy lately.  I started my new job a couple of weeks ago.  I love it.  And I’m so grateful!

Today’s card is for the My Pink Stamper Design Team showcase for the month of August.  I used the School Days stamp set from My Pink Stamper.  I wanted to show how versatile this set really is.  It is a great set for teacher appreciation, back to school goodies, school layouts…but there are also some stamps on there that can be used in a lot of different ways.

To create the cloud background paper, I used my Imagine to print and cut a 5.3 inch square that I flood filled with a pattern from the Hopscotch patterns cartridge.  I like to do this and fill the page with four of the squares.  These are perfect to cut down for cards…and since the scale is a little smaller, they are perfect for cards.

I have a video below giving you all of the details on this card…but I’ll give you a quick run down in writing too!

Don’t forget to head over to My Pink Stamper’s site to check out all of the projects by all of the My Pink Stamper Design Team members!
