Intro to Back to School Critters and School Bus Pocket Pals

It's time to start sharing peeks at the LDRS Creative Fall, Winter, and Holiday 2023 Collection! You've been asking for more Pocket Pals ... and we have them! Create the cutest interactive school-time scenes when you combine the Back to School Critters Pocket Pals with the School Bus Pocket Pals Stamps. Get ready for CUTENESS OVERLOAD! 

I don't think I could find words to properly tell you how much I LOVE these new pocket pals! I'm a mom and have a son in elementary school. I'm planning on using these new stamps and dies to make cards for teachers and staff as well as little notes for my son's lunchbox. It's so EASY and FUN to create simple, interactive cards! Let's get started! 

I used Raven Hybrid Ink to stamp some of the cute critters and a sentiment from the Back to School Critters Pocket Pals 4x6 Stamps as well as the bear and bus from the School Bus Pocket Pals 4x4 Stamps. I colored them with alcohol markers and then used the Back to School Critters Pocket Pals and the School Bus Pocket Pals Coordinating Dies to cut out each of the images. 
I set the images aside and started working on the background for my scene. I cut a circle from a piece of white cardstock and blended a sky on one side with Marina Madness Hybrid Ink and grass on the other side with Four Leaf Hybrid Ink. I die cut the largest die from the Delicate Stitches Scalloped Circle Dies and layered it on top of the ink blended circle. I took a piece of yellow cardstock and darkened the edges with Dan-D-Lion Hybrid Ink and added the circle towards the top center of the card.
I adhered some of my critters so that they would be peeking out of the windows of the school bus. I added foam tape behind the bus - careful not to add adhesive behind the door and added it near the center of the circle. I finished off the card by adding the bear and the sentiment to the scene. That's it! Come back throughout the weekend to see more peeks of the new Fall, Winter, and Holiday 2023 Collection

    Hi, been trying to find your back to school stamps? For the cute school bus blog you did on you tube. Do you know when they might be arriving? It said September 11, but still can’t find them? THANKYOU for your time and incredible ways you show how to make them come to life. THANKYOU!

    Oh Lynnea what an adorable card. (Wish I had little grandkids or even neighbors) No worries, as always, appreciate your video tips…the easy scene is a big deal… easy and it looks great…my kind of tips. Have plenty of other pocket pals cards underway that I can use that on, including Christmas shaker dome. As always, appreciate your time!
