Card Cupids - Back to School Challenge

Well I'm super excited to have my first official week as a member of the Card Cupids Design Team!

I've had a lot of fun in the past making some cute cards that hopefully made a kid smile. As a member of the design team, I'm asked to make samples for the challenges...many of which use digital stamps.  Digital stamps were pretty new to me, but I think I'm starting to get the hang of things.

This week's challenge theme is Back to School, and our digital stamps were from Fresh Brewed Designs.

I had a really cute paper pack from Die Cuts with a View that gave me some great depth to play with.  I created my own chalkboard by simply writing in a white gel pen.  As only my second digital card, I think I'm slowly starting to really enjoy the flexibility they provide.

In my Design Team announcement, I was asked to provide a card to "introduce" myself.  I decide to play around with a Stampin Up stamp set called Flower Fest and forced myself to play with a blending pen.  I need to get more comfortable with this method as my blending wasn't always smooth.
