Stamp Ink Paper "Back To School" Challenge with Memory Box

Hello everyone!  I hope everyone has been well.  I have been busy busy busy working on a bunch of different projects here. And, I started to teach English classes at a school in town two nights a week.  I really need more hours in my day but I think most of us feel this way.  LOL

I made today's card for the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge Blog.  Their challenge this week, No. 113, is Back To School

I had been working on another card using fish stamps but, when I saw that this challenge was a "back to school" challenge, I immediately thought of a "school of fish", and ran with it.  I started with a top folding A2 navy blue card base.  I then cut a piece of white cardstock using the large stitched rectangle from the Bundle of Stitched Shapes set (Simon Says Stamp).  Then I stamped several of the fish from the Fish Tales stamp set (Memory Box) and colored them in with Bic Markers.   I cut a piece of white fun foam, adhered this to the back of my colored fish and then adhered this to the card front.  I then adhered some small googly eyes to each of the fish.

While the eyes were drying, I typed the phrase on the computer, printed it out on white cardstock, cut around each of the words, adhered them to a piece of navy blue cardstock, cut them again and then adhered them under the fish.  

That's it.  Done.  I have to say that this fish set is my new happy set and I can see making a lot of cards with just this one set!  Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this quick card.  If you want to enter a card of your own, just click HERE to be taken right to the challenge.  And remember to share it with me! 

Until next time -
