The school supplies image is from the Please Deliver 6x8 Stamp Set and instead of stamping the entire image I stamped a portion of the image offset from an A2 card panel. Partial stamping is a really great way to stretch all the Ink Blot Shop Border Stamps!
I colored the school supplies in a range of bright and cheerful Yellows, Reds & Dark Teal Copic Markers and added white gel-pen accents for extra dimension. This was such a fun image to color—especially if you love school supplies as much as I do.
For the sentiment, I used the Ink Blot Shop Teacher Greetings Stamp Set. Using the MISTI and Ink Blot Shop A2 Alignment Guide-Quarter Inch Grid, I placed the sentiments above and below the school supply image. I closed the MISTI and removed the Alignment Guide and stamped the sentiments with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink—I gave it two swipes of the ink pad for a dark impression.
To finish the card design, I adhered the panel to a partially stamped Teal Stripe Background using the Ink Blot Shop Slim Stripes Background Stamp.
So there we are friends, a Bright & Cheerful yet Clean & Simple Teacher Appreciation Card. I hope you enjoyed my post today and it inspires you to get a jump start on your Teacher Appreciation gifts & cards. Thanks for stopping by and Big Paper Hugs!
