With the end of term coming up in a few weeks, it's been on my mind to make cards for my youngest son's teachers, so that was the thinking behind my offering this week. Come and have a look:
I always like to use a traditional apple motif on my teacher appreciation cards and this one is from the Tart and Tangy set. Of course only the shiniest, yummiest looking apples will do for those hard-working teachers...
... and these apples were given a coat of Poppy Parade ink before giving them a super-shine with Crystal Effects. I love how they look against the soft masked, sponged and stamped background - and yes, that background was stamped with a leaf from French Foliage! If you're a regular reader of my blog, you'll know that I'm using this set on everything that moves at the moment! The sentiment is stamped inside the lines because I thought they looked a bit like handwriting guides.
Supplies needed for this project:
Stamps: Tart and Tangy, French Foliage, Just Believe (sentiment)
Ink: Old Olive, Early Espresso
Card stock: Confetti Cream
Other: Markers, Crystal Effects
You can buy any of these supplies from me and I can have them delivered to your address in the UK. Just send me an email or give me a call on 01280 820593.
I had to leave my apples to dry before assembling this card (don't attempt to speed up the process with a heat gun as you get a nasty bubbly mess instead of a nice smooth shine!) so I've been at my older son's tennis match and my younger son's school fair since making them. I'm happy to report that the sun shone on these events and great fun was had by all (although I admit to being very glad to get home and have a revivifying cup of tea!)
Hope you're all having a great weekend! I shall be popping round to see what everyone's been making a bit later. Thank you for coming to visit me and leaving a comment - I really appreciate it.
