Good morning! It's Jen here today, and I'll be giving you a closer look at our Teachers Rule set.
This is not your average teacher-themed stamp set. Among the many mix-and-match sentiments (which includes options for a variety of teachers), we have also included a multi-step apple! With some creative inking, this apple could become a peach, orange, or other fruit as well.
So let's get to the projects! My first one is a pretty standard teacher card. I stamped the apple and sentiment onto a cardstock panel (made to look like a piece of notebook paper), then mounted it onto my card base. For a fun little pun, I added “from my core” to a cardstock banner and popped it up with foam tape.
This next card features our lovely sentiment, “the best teachers teach from the heart not from the book.” So true! I mounted the sentiment onto this fun background: I created it by using our Shutter Cover Die to make a mask which was adhered to watercolor cardstock. Then, I loosely painted with fuchsia and pink watercolor paints, and removed the mask once everything was dry. I love the effect!
My last card shows how this versatile set can be used for any recipient – not just teachers! I stamped the apple twice – once with pink/red, and another time in green inks – to create two different apple varieties (maybe Pink Lady and Granny Smith?). Then, I mounted them both onto a piece of patterned cardstock. The sentiment, “you're the apple of my eye,” finishes off the card.
I hope you feel inspired to check out this new stamp set, and we can't wait to see what you create!
Ha! Great cards, love the designs and the sentiments are perfect :-)
I could see my sister using these. I will pass along the post. Thank you for creating such exciting projects.
Gorgeous cards, Jen! I love the details on the apple and the sentiment on your 2nd card is so beautiful…and so true!
I love these new stamps Jen and some beautiful cards have been made with them. Great for a teacher’s card but love the two others with the stencilled backgrounds and that lovely sentiment. x
