OSAT Blog Hop End of Summer

August 9, 2018 8 Comments

Hi!  Welcome to my blog.  I’m Sara Levin the artful inker.  Today is the OSAT Blog Hop End of Summer.  And along with the general theme, we’re playing with a tic tact toe challenge.

OSAT Blog Hop End of Summer

 

OSAT Blog Hop End of Summer Tic Tact Toe

 

So, this is the tic tac toe we were to use along with the End of Summer Theme.

For my creations, I chose to go straight across the middle.

 

Picked for You stamp set - 148298 - Shop with Sara: https://www.stampinup.com/ecweb/product/148298/picked-for-you-photopolymer-stamp-set?dbwsdemoid=2059166

 

For years, the end of July has signaled the end of summer.

August is the beginning of marching band and thus the beginning of a new school year

Picked for You seemed like the perfect stamp set to signal this shift in my thinking

 

OSAT Blog Hop End of Summer Picked for You back to school cards from theartfulinker.com

 

Back to school means meeting new teachers and school supplies.

My end of summer projects reflect my back to school reality 🙂

So, I used the Picked for You apple in Granny Apple Green as my focal image.

The apple is cut out by hand.

Behind it, I stamped the small splatter from Artisan Textures.

On the 3″ x  3″ note card, I used a piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock with a layer

of Garden Impressions designer paper.

Before adhering this layer, I wrapped it in Whisper White Baker’s Twine.

To the apple, I added a single Rhinestone.

And, I added strip of the designer paper to the envelope.

Write a note to the teacher in this pretty card.

Or send in several as a gift that can be used throughout the year.

 

OSAT Blog Hop End of Summer School Supplies

 

OSAT Blog Hop End of Summer back to school pencil wrap from theartfulinker.com

 

With back to school comes the need for school supplies.

And in many schools, there is a request to bring in supplies for the classroom.

Pencils are a necessity.

So, I made a simple belly band to wrap my box of pencils

and coordinate with the note card.

Again, I used the Picked for You apple and cut it out by hand.

And to make the belly band, I used Granny Apple Green cardstock with a layer of

Garden Impressions designer paper.

To embellish, I used Whisper White Baker’s Twine and a Rhineston.

 

These are easy pieces to create so as not to add stress to the end of summer/back to school preparations.

Go ahead and pretty something up that you are sending in!
