Teacher Appreciation Gift Card

Hi! Thank you so much for stopping by!

With Teacher Appreciation week literally around the corner (May 4-8), I wanted to share a card/gift card!

Here it is...

I stamped SSS- Alphabet Background for my back layer and took a piece of yellow card stock and stamped LF-Argyle Backdrops with some CTMH Honey Ink.  I added a red strip of red to the bottom of the yellow piece and stenciled in some dots using SSS-Medium Dots Stencil and CTMH Cranberry Ink.

To add the opening for my gift card I used the MFT- Gift Card Grooves (can I say AWESOME) and the LF-Scripty Thanks die for my sentiment.

Pretty easy and super cute! Hope this inspires you to create something for those lovely and hard working teachers. Thanks for stopping by!

Freshly Made Sketches #181

Hi and thanks so much for stopping by.

Today I am joining the gals over at Freshly Made Sketches for the first time!! Like I mentioned in one of my previous post, I'm participating in different challenge to help myself become a better card maker and to keep my creative juices flowing!

Here is the sketch...

And here is my card...

I used some dots from Technique Tuesday Mom=Love stamp set to stamp out my background with some Avery Elle Pigment Inks.

I took some vellum and MFT- Birthday Sentiments stamp set to stamp out "happy" with some GoldenGlitz Delicata Ink and used my Cricut to cut "birthday".

I really like the way this card came out (sorry for the awful lighting, I'm REALLY trying to find a decent spot to get a better picture, I'm totally open for suggestions about lighting or maybe a lamp with a certain bulb that you use).

Thanks again for stopping by!

SSS Monday Challenge

Hi and thanks so much for stopping by!

I decided to create a card for SSS Monday Challenge. The challenge called for "Pastels"!

Here is my card...

I was totally inspired by Shari's 10 Ways to Watercolor post! She used some Twinkling  H2O that I totally forgot I had in my stash!  The sparkle and shimmer that it leaves is absolutely stunning!

Thanks for stopping by, have a fabulous day!
