Um Buggin’s Cricut Cuts & Stamps ~ Challenge 3 ~ Back To School

The third challenge at Um Buggin’s Cricut Cuts & Stamps is to create a card or item using a school-themed Cricut cartridge that you already own.  It has to have a Cricut diecut and a stamped image somewhere on it, and also be a new creation.  Lillie made the cutest backpack and easel card — be sure and check them out.

I wasted a lot of time going back and forth on what I was going to do and finally decided on a card with a school bus.  The printed paper is from Die Cuts With A View — the Grade School stack.  The bus is from the Doodlecharms cartridge.  When I was laying out the card in Design Studio, I thought it would be cute to put some type of critter in each of the windows of the bus.  I used Create A Critter for the animals.  The little patch of road is from Everday Paper Dolls and the sentiment is from 3 Birds on Parade.   I stamped the lines on the bus and also the pencil on the sign.  I did some doodling using Sharpie Poster-Paint markers.  I added buttons to the tires and Stickles to the gold stars.

I did a little more stamping on the inside of the card, using clear stamps from Basic Grey and Studio G.
