Best Teacher!

With the end of school in sight and our Crafty Creations challenge being a great color combo this week, this card was born!  I need a few teacher cards for “thank you’s” and this one will be for my son’s kindergarten teacher.  The Crafty Creations challenge theme set by Georgia is to make a card in black and white with a splash of red!  I love this combo, because it can be so elegant, or it can be striking and theatrical, or simply bold and fun!  The DT did a great job of showing all these styles I think, so pop on over for some inspiration! I used my Cricut to cut the boy/chalkboard silhouette and the book icon from “A Child’s Year”.  I get so much use out of the cartridge!!  So, I am also entering this into Speedy’s Friends challenge to make a silhouette card. The chalkboard words are from  a set called Homeroom by the Paper Company Studio, and Imaginisce snag ’em stamps.   The background stamp and the “thank you” behind the …

Crafty Creations Challenge #33

Saskia has set the Crafty Creations challenge this week and the theme is COFFEE OR TEA.   I was laughing at myself when I uploaded my card for the challenge, as I made it thinking I was making a coffee card, and I suddenly clued in that duh! there are marshmallows in the cup which means that my coffee is really a mug of hot cocoa!  Well, I just have to have my coffee, so in my mind that mug is still a cup of steaming hot coffee and those little white things, well they’re two lumps of sugar of course!! lol. Thanks for stopping by, and have a creative day!!

I couldn’t resist this little haunted house from the Snag’em Stamps Hallowhimsy Collection! It’s so cute! I just had to buy it even though I don’t make many Halloween cards. Maybe this year will be an exception! I started by stamping the house in basic black ink, on Very Vanilla card stock, then embossed it in clear ep. I masked off the moon with a punched circle and sponged Peach, So Saffron, Pumpkin pie, Walnut Stain and Basic Black inks around it.  The 4″ circle is cut using my Creative Memories cutting system. Then, I painted the inside of the house with Twinkling H2O’s in Autumn Butternut, and Wintermist Gray. The base card is 11″ X 5.5″ Very Vanilla cs folded in half, for a 5.5″ square card.  I also sponged the edges with the Peach ink. The bg is stamped with eek! from the Bitty Boo’s Too Stampin’ Up! set, on K & Co.  paper. This was  so fun to make! Hope you all like it! Look for Snag ’em stamps (Imaginisce) at your …
