Hello friends, Ilda here!
This week my kids went back to school, by this point I’m pretty sure they are one of the last ones to start. I’m not going to lie, and even though we had a great summer together, I am happy they are back in school and I have a little more time to myself, lol! Today, I want to share with you three similar yet different cards to have on hand for teacher thank you cards that will be given to them at some point throughout the year.
All cards were done the same way as you’ll notice but with different background colors, layout and sentiments.
The first thing I did was repeat stamping with all the Kobi’s and the apples using the stamps from the KOBI LOVES SCHOOL stamp set. I then colored each Kobi in different grey tones using Copic markers and their backpacks various colors.
I then used the coordinating KOBI LOVES SCHOOL dies to die cut the images, and set them all aside to blend out some backgrounds. For this background, I blended out picked raspberry, mustard seed, and peacock feathers oxide inks. I then toped the background using the GRID COVER die. For the sentiments, I used the SCRIPT TEACHER die and the Thanks Die from the A CUP OF THANKS dies that I die cut, stacked and glued three layers together. I then embellished the apple and Kobi’s nose with glossy accents and added some SILVER FEVER FUSION sequins to the card front.
This next card was done the same way only this time I blended the background using mustard seed and blueprint sketch oxide inks. As well the placement of the elements are centered and the apple is incorporated into the SCRIPT TEACHER die cuts by gluing it to the top of the “a”.
I also heat embossed the YOU RULE sentiment from KOBI LOVES SCHOOL in white on black cardstock.
For this last card, I was going for a fall-inspired background so used ripe persimmons, candied apple and mowed lawn oxide inks on the background.
Hope these 3 similar yet different Teacher Thank You cards inspired you today. Having these ready will definitely save me sometime throughout the school year.
Thank you all for stopping by and until next time… Happy Crafting!
