K is completing her first year in formal schooling. I can’t help but look back in wonder and thanks to God for all the blessings. One of the important and most special blessings being the teachers in K’s ‘Lower K. G.’ (as the children call it). K’s class teachers have been so kind to the children, and us parents too.
So, I made these to show our gratitude to the teachers. A small thank you.
Everything you see here comes from one stamp set - Clearly Besotted Stamps Teacher’s Pet. Love.
First up a set of three cards
The first card I made is inspired by the sentiment in the stamp set. I made a faux blackboard by stamping the sentiment in white and clear embossing it on black paper. I then framed this using Sizzix Instant Frames (as always everything is linked at the bottom of the post). The card’s background is using the Pencil line image which comes along with this stamp set in three different colours. I had great fun aligning all those pencils in different directions.
As you can see, I added some glossy accents to the apple.
Apple, apple.. red apple… juicy apple… Who’s reminded of Snow White? :) That was a line from the play when I was in my 2nd standard :)
In the next card I used the outline apple images along with the solid ones.. love love the effect. I also stamped and heat embossed in white, the coffee mug.
The last one is an ode to water colours. I love water colours. :) I stamped the pencils similar to the first card – but in black.. and went to town with ware colours. Soo much fun.
I am leaving this card as is – since I am entering this to Simplicity One layer Challenge – Use Water.
And finally - a small fridge magnet (measuring 5.5x5 inches) which will go with the card for each teacher. Made using similar techniques as the first card – but added faux stitching using white gel pen to echo the white dotted lines in the apple. And of course topped the apple with Glossy Accent.
That was so much fun isn’t it :)
