This years teacher gifts were card sets. My son's teachers are all very good friends, so I made each gift special and unique. This is my favorite of the three sets and the only one that was not mass produced. Conner's classroom teacher is a friend of mine and I wanted her to get something REALLY special :)
I recently won the Contemporary Roses set by MFT from Mona Pendleton and the sweet ladies over at Seize the Sketch. I was very excited, you all know how much I love flower stamps and dies! The images are simply beautiful, I love them with the stamped details & without.
Here are two of my favorite cards from the set.
So pretty right?
For this first card, I stamped the Contemporary Roses in Daffodil Delight & Pumpkin Pie ink and the leaves in Crumb Cake. Then I inked up Defining Words (Wplus9) in Crumb Cake ink and stamped off once before stamping it on my card. The greeting is from the Everyday Expressions set by FSS.
This card uses the same general design, but is stepped down a notch, more clean & simple, but equally as stunning. These flowers were stamped in Hibiscus Burst (PTI) and Rose Red (SU) inks, the leaves in Old Olive. My greeting is from the Fanciful Feathers set by Wplus9.
Thanks for stopping in!
I'll be back tomorrow with another handmade card set.
