Teacher's Appreciation Week - Part 1

Last week was Teacher's Appreciation Week at our school. When I taught card making classes at the school the week before, my daughter's teacher mentioned a gift of cards she once received and how she cherished them.   The hint was well received and we made her a gift of cards. 

I wish we would have had more time for my little 8 year old girl and I to collaborate or more cards.  Here are three cards that's the product of both of our efforts. Angeline stamped and colored these gorgeous images.  I finished them off into cards that we ended up including in the teacher's gift. The set is called Holiday Lineup by Stampin' Up.   I used some Stampin' Up designer series paper, Stampin' Up Cardstock and some printed scrapbook paper by K & Company for the rest of the card.   So these three cards were included in the tin and Angeline got to pick from the my stash to fill up the rest of the tin.

I also have to tell you a little story.   I have a very talented friend in Texas that's also a Stampin' Up demo, Joan Robertson.  She has a fantastic blog that you should check out. Clicky  We met through an online board called Scrapshare and I've had the pleasure of scrapping with her at retreats.   She had a little contest recently and the winner could pick from one of her retired stamp sets.   Well, I won and just knew Angeline would love this set.  Sure enough, she did.  She was giddy when it arrived and couldn't wait to stamp and color.   Thank you Joan for your generosity.

I picked up the tin from Hobby Lobby.  The top half of the tin was colored using alcohol inks by Ranger/Tim Holtz, The paper on the bottom half of the tin is Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up.  The flowers are Prima and the brad in the middle of the flowers is by Stampin' Up.   I picked up the ribbon at a craft store and don't recall the brand.   I unpackage all my ribbon unless it's a larger roll like Stampin' Up.  The paper is applied with Mod Podge.  I added the ribbon using Scor Tape.  I'm loving Scor Tape.  It's a great product.  It really sticks and is so easy to use. The flower is held on with a combination of Scor Tape and Glossy Accents by Ranger/Tim Holtz used as an adhesive.

The divider cards that you can see in the first picture above were made from Crate Paper printed scrapbook paper, a corner rounder, and Stampin' Up's tag punch. 

Here's a close up of the tin.

  1. LOOK at what an AMAZING job she did coloring that image! I am so glad one of my favorite stamp sets has a new home with someone (or two) that will love and use it. Such a fun set! Great job Monika and Angeline!!! :-)
