Simon says Stamp have a new release called Friendly Frolic and I was lucky to received a stamp set from them called School Bus Messages.
Over here we don't have school buses they are usually coach companies so I decided to colour my bus not in the obvious yellow and since its a good size I paper pieced it and coloured the lights and chrome etc with copics.
I used the Doodlebug Sweet Summer and I stamped my bus twice, its no obvious here but the bonnet is raised from the back of the bus, I also added a bit of acetate for a windscreen. I had to have somebody inside my bus and I decided to used the Picture Book Monkey, Zebra and Giraffe.
I very carefully covered the words school before stamping an extra bus on white card and I cut the sign out and stamped Simon Says Stamp Everyday Messages and stuck over the school bus sign.
Once my bus was made with its passengers it needed a road and this wonderful bit of patterned paper was in Doodlebug pack. I used the Simon Says Stamp Slopes and Hills twice and placed it on the road coloured card either side making sure it was wide enough for the wheels. I added the little Simon Says Stamp Stitched Banner with an Everyday message to introduce a bit more blue.
Check out the Simon Says Stamp Blog, there is loads on inspiration in the galleries not just the latest release.
The South East of UK heatwave is suppose to cool down after today fingers crossed, I want it sunny but with a nice 24c with a light breeze. Meanwhile off to cool off this morning with the Friday Swimmers Disabled Club.
