3X3 Thank You Notes for Summer Pre School Teachers Set #2

This is design #2 for my Pivia's Summer Pre School Teachers, I am making 25 3X3 Thank You Notes for the Teachers that they can give out to other Teachers, Parents, or Volumteer's.  I make five designs with five of each design.

 Here I am using a Heavy Weight Green card stock that I cut to 3 inches wide by 6 inches tall and scored at 3 inches.
 Using Versa Fine Black Onyx ink and anouther piece of the Green Heavy Weight card stock cut to 3/4 inches wide by 2 3/4 long.
 Using my Hampton Art Stamp Perfect Tool and some Heavy Weight White card stock to stamp my flowers.

 These are rubber mounted stamps so I took out the foam insert of the Stamping Tool.
 I only use one magnet to hold down the paper.
 Even if the paper is too long its OK it will not crease it.

I am stamping the sentiment on the inside.
 I did hit the images with my heat tool on low just to dry them before I start to water color them with Distress inks.

I am using Mowed Lawn for the leaves.
 Mustard Seed for the buds and inside of the butterfly.
 Carved Pumpkin for the other buds and the rest of the butterfly.
 Abandon Coral for one of the flowers.
 Seedless Preserves for the other flower.


Its easy to water color with distress inks, just take an acrylic block and smoosh the ink on it and use a water brush to add water and pick up the color.
Tombow Mono Liquid Glue to adhere the banner to the bottom.

 Some light and dark brown twine wrapped around twice and adhered on the back with some Scotch Tape.
 Using that same Mowed Lawn to stamp the back of the card and added some foam the the panel and placed on the front of the card.
All Done.

3X3 Thank You Notes for Summer Pre School Teachers Set #1

Alivia AKA Pivia is going to a Summer 4 week Pre School Program and I wanted to make them some 3X3 Thank You Note sets as a Thank You.

 I am using my Hampton Art Stamp Perfect Tool that I purchased from Micheal's along time ago to do my stamping but you don't need it.

Stamping over a foam mouse pad will also work just as well.
 I am using a Retired Hostess set called Lotus Blossom.

As you can see I am using some copy paper to make the #3 stamp a light image, that is called stamping off.
 The second image lines up nicely on to the first image, this is #2 on the stamp set, the stamps are labeled #1, #2, and #3.

They also have little notches at the top of the stamp to help you aline them.

This color combo I needed to stamp off again so I am using the copy paper again.
This is image #1 and I will be stamping it full strength.
 Finished flower, I cut these 110 pound White card stock panels to the size of 2 3/4 by 2 3/4 square.
 I am using anouther 110 pound Brown card stock for the base, cut at 6 inches tall by 3 inches wide and scored at 3 inches.

I am stamping with Soft Suede ink the inside, back, and front sentiments.
 I added some foam dimensionals to the stamped panel.

The inside card stock is Heavy Weight White card stock.
#1  -  Marina Mist  -  Full Strength
#2  -  Marina Mist  -  Stamp off
#3  -  Soft Sky  -  Full Strength
#1  -  Elegant Eggplant  -  Full Strength
#2  -  Wisteria Wonder  - Full Strength

Pivia St. Pattys Day Outfit 12X12 scrapbook page

I decided to bust out some photos and make a 12X12 scrapbook page, as I was searching and sorting threw my photos I found these three of Pivia on St. Patricks Day.

 I started by trimming these photos down to a resionable size.

I am also using a 12X12 piece of Cucumber Crush card stock from Stampin Up.
 I searched threw my Thickers/Stickers drawers and pulled out a selection I thought would work.
I am using anouther 12X12 yellow pattern paper that I trimmed down 1/4 inch off each side.

It came from a Hobby Lobby pattern paper pack.

I also used a 8 1/2 by 11 inch Hobby Lobby pattern paper pack to mat the photos as well and used some fun foam on the back of one that will go in the center.
 Using some My Favorite Things dies and Heavy Weight Cream card stock I cut out some shapes.
 A Heidi Swapp roller date stamp and some Versa Fine Black Onyx ink to stamp the date.

I trimmed it down to hid behind a photo.
Pivia came down to check on me and borrowed the camera, not to bad of a picture for a 5 year old.
 Using some double sided adhesive on the back of some ribbon.

This will give some texture to my page and add some more St. Patty's Day flair.

 Here is some ribbon in the corner.
 Using a stamp from Stamps of Life to add a bit of interest and fun to the top corner and more of the ribbon.
 I also used a die from Stamps of Life and more Cucumber Crush card stock.

The letter stickers have some black glitter on them.
I am not liking the journaling that I hand wrote so I typed it up on my phone and printed it out, cut it up, and ran threw my Xyron sticker maker.
 I typed it on the 'Notes" section of my phone and put more Heavy Weight Cream card stock to my printer and printed it from my phone, wireless.
 Trimmed it down.
 Ran it threw my sticker maker, I have not used this tool in a very long time.

You want to press down and smooth out the wrinkles.
All done and very happy with how this turned out.

CAS(E) this Sketch #226

I liked this Sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch and decided I wanted to to try and make a wedding card.

I found my inspiration from a very old Simon Says Stamp Card Kit stamp set, I tried to find some inspiration on Pinterest but did not find much but I did find THIS CARD.

Would you like to play along, CLICK HERE.

 I used some Versa Fine Black Onyx ink and stamped the flower from the stamp set three times on some 6X6 Pink pattern paper from studio g.
 I fussy cut the out in three different sections.

I outlined them in a black Stamping Up writer marker to hid any of the white core edges from when I fussy cut them out.
 I added some foam to the back of the smaller two flowers.
 I used a green ombree paper from the same studio g pattern papers and free handed on the back some leaves.
Using the same writer marker and a piece of scrap paper to add some thin black lines to the edges of the leaves.
All done.

 I cut a doilie in half and also added the sentiment on a white Heavy Weight card stock banner.

I also added some Viva Pearl Pen in the center of the flower in the color gold.
I added the other half of the doilie and some more pattern paper along the edge.

I added anouther sentiment from the stamp set on the bottom.
