NEW - 3 Step School Days!

Happy Monday!! Hope you all had a good weekend - it was very wet here! I guess we had a hurricane watch, but mostly Down East - only rain here!

I'm sharing another one of the Kitchen Sink Stamps' new sets today, 3 Step School Days. I just love the images - almost vintage, but so neat!! And the font . . . fabulous!! I can see so many uses for this - teacher gifts, scrapbook pages, school notes for the children, and so many more!

I shared part of this card as one of my sneak peeks so here is the full card. Aren't those books cool, and the ruler?!? The apples are 4 steps and for this card they were used them to make Polyshrink buttons (so you can imagine the stamped images are around 50-60% bigger). The picture photo makes the ribbon and button look so dark but they really matches the cardstock! The die cut paper is from a great Die Cut Spiral Notebook I got at Emma's Paperie - it was perfect for this card!

Cardstock: Red Riding Hood (SU!), Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink), Patterned Paper: October Afternoon, Noteworthy Journaling Die Cut Spiral Notebook (Making Memories), Stamps: 3 Step School Days (Kitchen Sink Stamps), Ink: Ladybug Red, Rubarb Stalk (Memento), Cranberry Crisp, Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive, Garden Green, River Rock (SU!), Frayed Burlap (Ranger),

Here's another project I made with the set. Just a Quick Note - seriously!! I used my Long Rectangle Nestabilities to cut the note and dp. It fit perfectly in these pretty glassine envelopes I've had for a while. I wanted to dress up the envelope a bit so I stamped an "E" using my Mix It Up! Monogram & Alphabet (also KSS) and attached it to some pretty ribbon.

Here's a look at the inside. The ink & feather quill are such a pretty image - and fun in pink!! The dp is Pink Paislee. After stamping the image I used my Aquapainter to fill in the ink for a pop of color. Wouldn't this be a nice note to stick in a child's lunchbox, or to send a note to your child's teacher or as a gift tag? You could make up a bunch of these in no time! I plan on making more and using them to give the girls with little notes of encouragement through the school year - they love getting notes from their teacher! ;)

Cardstock: Confettie White (SU!), Patterned Paper: Office Lingo Casual Friday (Pink Paislee), Stamps: 3 Step School Days, Mix It Up! Monogram & Alphabet (Kitchen Sink Stamps), Ink: Angel Pink, Rose Bud, London Fog, Tuxedo Black (Memento), Accessories: Rose grosgrain (SU!), Nestabilities, glassine envelope
