Hi there! Today I would like to share w/ you several cards that I have made for the kindergarten teachers this week! The teachers and those of us on the PTO agreed to celebrate the teachers' birthdays in a different way this year. Instead of a Starbucks gift card and a huge cake for every teacher's actual birthday, we budgeted money from the PTO and have purchased gifts for each teacher's classroom. Wish lists that the teachers wanted for their classroom, but unable to pay for it. We granted their wishes! Lots of games for indoor recess time, play doh, flash cards, etc. We are giving the teachers their gifts this week, in front of the students, (since it's for them, essentially!). Then one day, I will give out my cards, and teachers will get to enjoy cake for one day instead of 6 days and go into sugar overload!
Since I'm the crafty one on the board, I was voted to make the cards! So, without further ado, here we go!
definition! I took my large swirl template and applied several layers of gesso. I heat dried it, which made it look aged, which was totally ok! Then, I applied green ink to the top of it, but it didn't want to stay. So, I sealed it w/ a glittery sealer, also from Swirlydoos!
Here are the general ingredients for all of my cards:
Stamps: My Favorite Things, Kitchen Sink Stamps, Inkadinkado, Recollections, Stampin' Up!
Ink: multiple inks from Stampin' Up!, Memento Black, Purple Copic
Paper: All paper from Stampin' Up!, white paper,vellum
Embellishments: rhinestones - assorted; flowers - Prima,Petaloo; ribbon - Stampin' Up!; twine - My Favorite Things; Dies - My Favorite Things, Spellbinders; assorted blingage - assorted vendors.
Have a fabulous day!
