It’s that time of the year again when we start to need cards for those wonderful teachers who put up with a classroom full of kids every year. I’m guest posting on the Heffy Doodle blog today, showcasing some of the fabulous stamps from their latest release!

I started out by stamping several of the stamps from the Teacher’s Pet stamp set in some Copic-friendly MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink onto some blending cardstock. Once dry, I coloured them in with my Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

On an A2 red card panel, I clear heat embossed several of the sentiments from the Teacher’s Pet stamp setย and Teach Me Words stamp set that I had arranged into two lines. Once cooled, I cut this panel out with a stitched rectangle that was just slightly smaller than A2. The characters needed something more to distinguish them from the background so I used a Stitched Circle die to create a focal cluster point. Adhering this to the background, I then arranged the coloured die cuts, popping the main teacher bear up with some foam tape to make him stand out.

For the sentiment, I coloured in a Teacher die cut with some coordinating copic markers, stacking several on top of each other and covering with Glossy Accents to give some dimension. I white heat embossed a ‘TO THE MOST AWESOME’ sentiment onto some black cardstock and trimmed it down so it would fit below the teacher die cut.

A little finishing touch of Glossy Accents for the teacher’s glasses and here is a card I’m sure any teacher would be glad to receive. I now have to make five more of these cards so my niece can give them out to her teachers!

Thanks for reading and I hope I have given you some inspiration!
