Sparkle Creations July Preview -- Backpack Oliver and Challenge #50

Hello and Welcome to the Day 3 of previews for the July One Year Anniversary release for Sparkle Creations Rubber StampsSparkle is releasing 4 new SCRS images and 2 new Karber images this Saturday! Today we are previewing the second SCRS image, Backpack Oliver and sentiment, "for a special teacher"! I love this image just as much as Bookworm Ruby (previewed yesterday)!

It's also time for an all new Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge! Each week we will post an all new challenge at this time (9 PM PST on Mondays). For all the details, please visit the SCRS blog. This week's challenge is a sketch challenge (sketch designed by Kim)!

I went with primary colors and used Kaisercraft's Class of '87 collection again. I used my SU! notebook punch on the lined patterned paper and swapped out the report card die cut (part of the collection) for the circular panel.

Here's a larger view of the sketch:

Be sure to visit all rest of the SCRS designers for more peeks of Backpack Oliver. Sparkle will be giving away a Backpack Oliver to one lucky person! For a chance to win, you need to comment on all of the designer's blogs (list below). Then head on over to the SCRS blog and comment on the Oliver post. You have until midnight EST each day to comment. The lucky winner will be announced the following day!

You will also want to pop on over to the SCRS blog to see the rest of the SCRS team's interpretation of the sketch.
