Teacher Thank You's


Hi Everyone!

With a little over 2 weeks before school is over here in sunny Florida,  I've been busy making a few Teacher Thank You cards.  My step-children will be giving these to their teachers next week along with a little gift.  Check back next week for a look at the gift, it's going to be super cute!!

I LOVE my PaperTrey Ink, Vintage Picnic Basket stamp set.  (I really don't play with my PaperTrey stamps enough.)  I decided to do a paper piecing for the basket on a green patterned paper that I had in my scraps.  The yellow polka dot paper is digital paper from My Time Made Easy, the other DP paper, buttons, twine, sentiment, and ribbon are all from PaperTrey Ink.

I added shadows on the green patterned paper with my C1 Copic Marker to give it depth. And used my Ek Success Binding Edge Border Punch...perfect for teacher cards and school related projects.

Quick. Simple. Done.  If they were all only that easy right?

This card is for the following challenges:

MelJen's Designs = #8 Seeing Spots
Ooh La-La-Creations #54 Bright & Cheerful
Practical Scrappers Patterned Paper
Crazy Challenge - Something New (Border Punch)
Crafty Creations = #68 Encouragement/Celebration
The Pixie Cottage #19 3-D/ Paper Tole


Sorry, no close up today...it came out too blurry and I didn't have time to take more photos.

Copic's Used:

Apples: R29, R27, R24, R20, YG01
Leafs: G07, YG03
Outline & Shadow: C1

Thanks for stopping by!!
