Season Greetings (Teacher cards) #4

Hello and welcome to the next card in the Teacher card series. This card is so simple to make, uses minimal supplies and if you like to make your own background, it has that too. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

.

.

Additional supplies: ATG tape runner, Ken Oliver's Stick-It, clear blocks.

1. Create a card base from Garden Green card stock that is 5 ½” x 8 ½” and score at 4 ¼” to make a side-folded card.

2. Cut a slightly smaller piece of Whisper White card stock (4”x 5 ¼”). Stamp the holly and berries image around the edge of the panel using Garden Green ink and leaving space for the ornament and sentiment.

3. Select a piece of DSP and place Stick It on the side you don’t want to use. Die-cut the ornament, pull off the backing sheet and place where you want on the panel.

4. Stamp the sentiment, using Cherry Cobbler ink, in the bottom right corner (or where it will fit on you panel) and then adhere the panel to the card base using favorite adhesive.

5. On the inside of the card cut another 4” x 5 ¼” panel of Whisper White card stock and stamp image in opposite corners using Garden Green ink. Stamp the sentiment in the center of the panel using Cherry Cobbler ink. Adhere to the inside of the card.

Let It Snow (Teacher cards) #3

Happy Sunday and welcome to the next installment in the Teacher cards series. The background was created by heat embossing snowflakes all over the panel and it's not the typical Holiday colors but it seemed to work well with the snow theme. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

.

.

Additional supplies used: ATG tape runner, powder bag, heat tool.

1. Create a card base from Whisper White card stock that is 5 ½” x 8 ½” and score at 4 ¼” to make a side-folded card.

2. Cut a slightly smaller piece of Pool Party card stock (4”x 5 ¼”). Stamp the snowflakes in VersaMark ink all over the panel that is prepped with a powder bag. Sprinkle with white embossing powder, heat set and then adhere to the card base.

3. On a scrap of Pool Party card stock prepped with powder bag, stamp sentiment in VersaMark ink, sprinkle with white embossing powder and then heat set. Create a flag on the right side of the sentiment.

4. Using a scrap of Whisper White card stock, stamp the penguin, using Memento Tuxedo black ink. Color the beak and feet using Pumpkin Pie marker. Glue the feet to the sentiment strip with Fine-tip glue pen and pop the rest up on dimensionals.

5. Adhere the focal image/sentiment to the center of the card front.

6. For the inside of the card cut a 4” x 5 ¼” panel of Whisper White card stock and stamp sentiment in Pool Party ink. Adhere to the inside of the card.

Season Greetings (Teacher cards) #2

Time for another Teacher card and we've done a lot of the same techniques as yesterday's card. There's a cute bear, some heat embossing and stamping and then to finish it all off, some sequins. Take a look at the next card in this series and let me know what you think.

.

.

Additional suppllies used: ATG tape runner, powder bag and heat tool.

1. Create a card base from Garden Green card stock that is 5 ½” x 8 ½” and score at 4 ¼” to make a top folded card.

2. Cut a slightly smaller piece of Whisper White card stock as a mat and adhere to the card base using ATG tape runner and then cut a piece of DSP to 3 ¾”x 5” and cut in half. Next, adhere the DSP to bottom of the Whisper White panel and then adhere a ½” strip of Garden Green card stock above the DSP.

3. Stamp the sentiment in upper right corner using Cherry Cobbler ink.

.

4. I had no Silver foil paper so I created my own by swiping Versa Mark ink pad across some Whisper White card stock. I then sprinkled the card stock with Silver embossing powder and heat set. I used the heat embossed paper to die cut a scalloped oval shape and then adhered it to the front of the card using ATG tape runner. You can skip this step if you have silver card stock.

5. On a piece of Whisper White scrap, stamp the bear in Tip Top Taupe ink and then stamp the face and ears in Soft Suede ink. Pop the bear up on Dimensionals and place in the center of the scalloped oval.

6. Sprinkle metallic sequins on the card front.

7. For the inside of the card I simply placed a 4” x 5 ¼” panel of Whisper White card stock and stamped a sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink.

I hope you have enjoyed today's project and will check back often for more inspiration. Thank you for visiting.
