This is my first time playing along with Kylie Bertucci’s International Highlights. Our theme for this highlight is Teacher Gifts!
It’s been more than a few years since I needed a teacher gift, LOL But, I do have several friends who are teachers that I could mail a card to. I chose to use the Stampin’ Up! Picked for You stamp set and combined it with the Large Letters Framelit dies.
This card starts out with a Garden Green card base – 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″. I covered that with a 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer of Cherry Cobbler CS. A 4″ x 3/4″ strip of Wood Textures DSP was glued across the bottom of the Cherry Cobbler Layer. The sentiment was stamped, in Memento Black ink, onto that strip. For the chalkboard, I used a 3 3/4″ x 2 1/2″ layer of Basic Black CS with a 1/2″ x 3 5/8″ strip of Wood Textures DSP. To simulate chalk, I sponged just a little bit of White craft ink.
The letters were cut from Garden Green, Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point CS, using the Large Letters Framelit dies. I attached the letter to the “chalboard” using mini glue dots.
The apples were stamped onto Watercolor Paper using the Stamparatus and the Stampin’ Up! Picked For You stamp set. The red apple was stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink. Layer one was stamped off once before stamping onto my Watercolor Paper, the next two apple layers were stamped full strength. For the stem I used Early Espresso ink. This process was repeated using Granny Apple Green ink for the green apples. I then cut out the apples out using my paper snips and adhered them to the card front with liquid glue.
Stampin’ Tip: I used Watercolor paper so that I could go back after they were stamped and do a little blending with the Blender Pens in areas that didn’t get color. Don’t get me wrong – the Stamparatus helps tremendously in lining up these stamps, but nobody is perfect. At least I’m not….
This card is one of three that will be in my Tuesday August 14th class here in Twin Falls (Also available as a class to go for those who are out of town – I send you the paper materials all pre-cut ready to stamp along with PDF instructions. You use your own stamps and ink. If you need stamps and ink, I have a list of supplies listed below with links to my online store for purchase.)
