Back To School - Outlawz Greetings Challenge

Hello, Crafty Peeples!

I want to share two projects that I made for the Monday Greetings Challenge over at The Outlawz.  Finally, an opportunity to use my Graphic 45 ABC Primer papers.  I only have a few sheets, not quite enough to make the 3D project I had planned, so I've just been sitting on it.  The Bookplate Holder Idea is my very own! 
I also made a really simple card for my second project because it allowed me to practice the "Bordered Sentiment" Technique.  I was pleased with both outcomes.

I wanted to see if the tab card would work with a landscape orientation...and it does!  YaY Me!

The Bookplate in the center is removable

Card Base:  Bazzill Basics (Black, Greys, and Whites)
Designer Papers:  Graphic 45 An ABC Primer 
My Mind's Eye: Kraft FUNDAY (Front Cover Burgandy/Krafts Dots) and
(Green Plaid Paper)
Craftwood: Chalkboard with Frame
Misc.: Creative Impressions Gold Fasteners
You can find the tutorial for this card HERE

 This technique really does make your sentiment POP!  I will have to experiment with a few more sentiment stamps!  You can use any size sentiment and still get an eye popping design!

Card Base:  Bazzill Basics (Black, White, Grey); Neenah - Red Hot Pepper - Linen
Designer Paper: Kaiser Craft - Class of '87 (Notepaper and Alphabet strip)
Stamps:  Graphic 45 An ABC Primer
Misc.: Sharpie Marker, Ranger Distress Ink: Ripe Persimmon (Ruler) 
Momento Inks: Bamboo Leaves, Rose Red, Lady Bug and Tuxedo Black
You can find the tutorial for this card HERE

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed these projects!   Hugz, Chana Malkah
