"Schoolhouse Backdrops": Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week!

Hi there, friends!!  So, what did you think of the "On The Mend" inspiration posts yesterday?  Weren't the projects fabulous...loved all the cute googly eyes and how everyone used the set!  Today we have another new set to share with you called "Schoolhouse Backdrops".  This is a super versatile background stamp set that will be a must have in any stamper's stash.  And as you will see on my card...it works wonderfully with the different sentiment and lettering sets that Lawn Fawn has to offer.

I used the Clean & Simple Stamping Blog FTL #144 to help with the design of my card.  It has been awhile since using one of their sketches, and I remembered how much I love them!  Here is my card!
"Thank You, Teacher" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (green) & Papertrey Ink (vintage cream) 
Paper/Die: October Afternoon (Cherry Hill: New Apron, Cookie Jar, Diecut Shapes)
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Schoolhouse Backdrops, Smitty's ABCs, & Sophie's Sentiments sets)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: robin's egg, cranberry, moss green) & Tsukineko (Versafine: onyx black) 
Felt: Sassafras
Jewel: Doodlebug Designs
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft
Steel Die: Papertrey Ink (Spiral Notebook Page)

Instructions:  Create card from green cardstock.  Add a strip of block dotted paper to the top.  Cut an apple paper block slightly smaller, and adhere to the front, leaving the upper right corner adhesive free.  Adhere a scalloped border diecut to a striped paper block, and adhere to the front.  Curl the upper right corner of the apple paper block, and adhere with a black jewel.  Diecut the spiral notebook page from vintage cream cardstock, and then stamp with paper lines.  Cut a banner strip from vintage cream cardstock, and stamp the paper lines to it.  Stamp the sentiment to it, and then layer both items together to the card front.  Add the felt apple accent to the left side of the sentiment banner to finish. 

This stamp set has so many different possibilities!!  I just love it!!  Be sure to check out what the rest of the Lawn Fawn gals have come up with using "Schoolhouse Backdrops"!
