Thanks for allowing my rant! If you want to know more about why this gets me so worked up, email me.
But this is also the time of year when parents look for ways to thank the teachers who have worked with their children all year, so I want to post a thank you card for a teacher.
- For a teacher's card... the Faux Chalkboard Technique seems a natural! You heat emboss your image or sentiment with White Stampin' Emboss powder on a dark background cardstock, Basic Black in this case, then use some Whisper White Craft Ink and a Stamping Sponge to add the "chalk dust around the edges and in patches around the embossed part.
- The main sentiment is from the Feel Goods Stamp set. All the sayings in that set I just love! And it isn't retiring so you will still be able to order it after June 4th. Starburst Sayings Stamp set from the Occasions catalogue provides the other two sentiments, and it will be available in the new catalogue as well. I die cut the starburst shapes behind them with the Starburst Framelits, which you can still bundle with the stamp set and save 15%.
- The card base is Real Red cardstock and I used a panel of Modern Medley DSP behind the "chalkboard"!
New Catalogue Product Shares are Now Posted!
I have organized the new product shares from the 2014/15 Annual Catalogue. Check them out here and decide what you want. This is an affordable way to get a variety of paper, ribbon and embellishments without paying for a full spool or package. Four or five people share an order and divide up a spool or package between them. I will post the whole share on my blog tomorrow!
Here are the latest weekly deals for May 27 - June2.
