Peace on Earth

Hello!

Here’s a clean and simple card.  I very rarely use colored cardstock (simply because I forget I have it) and wanted to create something easy.

For this card, I used a previously released Lawn Fawn set, Let It Snow.  I stamped my scene with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white EP.  The sentiment is from Neat & Tangled’s Bible Journaling and Christmas Journaling.  The “and” is from Concord & 9th’s Perfectly Penned.  For the snow and stars, I stamped with Versamagic Cloud White.  Once I completed my card panel, I adhered it with foam tape to a kraft base.

Simple.

You Rule!

Hi!

I have another teacher’s card to share.  I made this for my daughter’s 6th grade Language Arts teacher.  He retired this year .  He was well loved among the students including my daughter.  She was so disappointed when she found out knowing her brother won’t experience the “awesomeness” (her words) of his class.

SUPPLIES Stamps: Smarty Pants (Paper Smooches); A Good Apple (Lawn Fawn) Color: Black Licorice Hybrid (MFT); Black Onyx Versafine (Tsukineko); Prismacolor Pencils Other: Glossy Accents (Ranger); Patterned Paper.

I used two teacher clear sets for htis card:  Smarty Pants (Paper Smooches) and You Rule (Lawn Fun).  The stack of books were masked to make them higher.  I colored and cut the teacher/professor on a separate piece of cardstock and adhered the image on the panel with dimensional foam.  I also added glossy accents on the spectacles for dimension and fun!

Have a great weekend!

 

 

Thank You Teacher Tags

Hi All,

Just a quick post.  Today was the last day of school for my kids (hooray!).  And as always, I gave each teacher a little treat as a thank you for inspiring my kids throughout the year.  I usually bake an item as part of their gift.  And this year was carrot cake!  I packaged them up in tissue paper and put them in gift bags (bought in bulk) I purchased from Michaels.

I just wanted to share the tags that I created for the gifts.  I wanted to make each teacher a card but time simply ran out.

Sorry for the pics.  I took them right before the kids brought them to school today.  Hopefully, you get an idea of what they look like and how I made them.

To create the tags, I used PTI’s Tag Sale #3 die for all three tags shown.  I masked around the stitched border just using post-it notes to keep the image inside the stitching.  Images and sentiments that I used came from Paper Smooches Smarty Pants and Lawn Fawn A Good Apple – perfect sets to make teacher thank you notes.  I used a Stamp-a-ma-Jig (a must have) to make one continuous clean line of images on a few of the tags.  Images were colored with Prismacolor Pencils and I also dabbed glossy accents on one of the apples and the professor’s tie.  Easy peasy.  I created 5 tags in total and I was done (whew!).

Take care!
