Teacher Thank You Cards

Good morning!  I have another card to share today for Craft Heaven.  These are the thank you cards I made for my daughter to take to school.  Same design as my last post but some extra embellishments in the form of Doohickey dies.

I used a white gel pen to create the 'chalk' writing.

The cute owl and ruler are from Doohickey volume 20, Back to School.  The plasters were also cut with a Doohickey die from Maja Design paper.

The leaves were cut with the Rose Leaf Doohickey die and the seam binding is from Craft Heaven.

Altogether I made four cards, all the same design except for the extra addition of the plasters on the first one.

I hope you like them and thanks for looking!

An Apple for the Teacher

Good afternoon!  Today I'd like to share another creation for Craft Heaven.  This was a thank you card I was commissioned to make.  I love making these apple shaped cards as teacher thank you cards each year, and I love to vary them a little each time.  This year I decided to combine my blackboard thank you cards with the apple cards to make apple shaped blackboards!

I have written the thank you sentiment by hand with a white gel pen.  I tried to make it look like it had been written with chalk!  The base has been made with Kraft cardstock.

The gorgeous vintage seam binding, lace and cherry blossom are from Craft Heaven.  I cut the leaves with the Rose Leaf Doohickey die and added some twine and an apple charm from my stash.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking!

Summer Days

Good evening!  I can't believe it has been a month since my last post!  I have been so busy lately and creating a lot of things behind the scenes which I will be showing you shortly.  Today I have a card for Craft Heaven Shop and also as a remind for our TOMIC challenge that runs all summer.  I have used the gorgeous Maja Design Summertime paper pad.  All of the papers in this collection are so beautiful it is hard to chose what to use!

I have painted Lazy Day Tilda from the Pool Party collection with Distress Inks using the no lines technique.  I have also used the postmark stamp from the With Love From Paris stamp collection at the side of the image.

The strawberries were made with Maja papers and the Magnolia Strawberry die and the flowers and lace are from Craft Heaven.

The ice-cream was also cut with a Magnolia doohickey and I've topped it with strawberries cut from one of the Maja Design papers.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
