Thanks Teacher

Today I am sharing a school themed card to show appreciation for all of the teachers out there.  This one is good for sending or receiving by either gender, I think.  

Front sentiment:  Many thanks teacher.
Inside sentiment:  You are appreciated...

This is a dimensional design with the apple and tag popped up off the page.  These colors together are fun for school, I think.  And I added geometric triangle, chevron and circle shapes with a big apple image. I no longer have littles with lunch boxes but still have teachers and professors to thank.

Tools used include:
Sweet Stamp Shop: Triangle Style set
My Creative Time:  All Around Everything, You're My Best Buddy, Anyday Bingo & Crossword, You Had Me At Chocolate sets
Ranger archival ink in fern green, red geranium & potting soil, Cricut Imagine Kate's Kitchen, My Mind's Eye paper, Bazzill cardstock, punches and Pop Dots.

It's All Good Beach Card

This is a summer beach scene card with stamping, stencil and die cut elements.  I love the beach chair and umbrella combination.  The inspiration for the design is the fabulous Florida pastime that I like to enjoy, especially the last week together before the kids go back to school.  The texture is nice and the clouds have a fluffy feel using crinkle paper.  It has some sheer accents in the layers.  The colors were inspired by the Unity Stamp Company August {be inspired} color challenge.  It is in their Friends With Flair projects.  This is included with Paper Issues Endless Summer link up.

Front sentiment:  It's All GOOD
Inside sentiment:  delight in the day

This one is perfect for I'm Sorry, Friendship or Birthday occasions.  The wonderful beach chair, umbrella and the fun sentiments inside and out are stamped and colored with distress markers. The sand and was cut from a stencil. The sun and fluffy clouds were die cuts. I had the perfect paper stash for the waves.  I used cobalt blue, sand, lime green and coral shades with the addition of lighter blues. I trimmed some sea grass to accent.

Tools used include:
From Unity Stamp Co.: It's All Good 100 days of summer Itty Bitty set, You & Me.
Also, My Creative Time stitched circle die & stitched cartoon clouds dies, stencil.

Thanks so much for visiting and have a wonderful summer. :)
