School Basics Sneak with Mint Motif


Just when you think Mint Motif's stamps can't get any cuter, Kimberly Crawford comes up with this darling school stamp set called School Basics.  There are so many neat elements that can be combined to make a variety of cards that will serve you throughout the school year.

I particularly love the writing strip which measures 5 3/4" x 3/4" (for those, like me, that don't measure  it means that it can make a really nice border on a big card :) The best part is that all the sentiments from this set can be stamped perfectly onto the handwriting strip!!!  Oh my gosh how cool is this!  AND each word is a separate stamp soooo you can make up your own sentiments to suite the occasion - eeeeaak!!!!  The quaint images are perfect for school.  I used the pencil - which I stamped three times and then colored with my Copics.  There are also two different apples, cute little leaves and star shapes.  All this on one set!



Product used on this card: 
Stamps: Mint Motif's School Basics, Paper: Webster's Pages Amber Waves, Copic Markers, Spellbinders Nested Apples, Burlap Twine
