Teacher Gifts

For Christmas this past year, I gave my girls' teachers monogram note cards. I had a ton of fun making them! I put them each in a little box that Debbi from Stampin' Addicts shared with me! (Aren't you proud of me? I remembered where I got something from!) This set was given to one of Lydia's teachers, who's favorite color is blue. Marina Mist is my new favorite blue so I just had to use it! The flowers were stamped using the silver shimmer paint. I also got the silver scallop and the circle layer on the cards by punching them from white and then using a finger dauber, colored them silver! 

Stamps: Lovely Letters, Baroque Motifs
Ink: Marina Mist
Card Stock: Marina Mist, Whisper White
Accessories: Scallop, 1 3/8" circle, 1 1/4" circle punches, finger dauber, silver
shimmer paint, Whisper White satin ribbon, dimesionals

Purple is the favorite color of Belle's teacher so Concord Crush was the color I picked to make her cards! Belle is so funny! She has always LOVED the color orange. As soon as she found out her teacher's favorite color is purple, her favorite color changed! Can you guess what her "new" favorite color is? Yep, Purple!! Oh, to be 4 again!

Stamps: Lovely Letters
Ink: Concord Crush
Card Stock: Whisper White, Concord Crush
Accessories: Scallop circle, 1 3/8" circle, 1 1/4" circle punches, Eyelet border
 punch, Whisper White taffeta ribbon, Concord Crush ribbon

This last set was for Lydia's other teacher who's favorite color is green. This set is similar to the set I made for Jeanine this last fall. Different colors, of course but the same layout.

Stamps: Lovely Letters
Ink: Old Olive
Card Stock: Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Whisper White
Accessories: Scallop circle, 1 3/8" circle, 1 1/4" circle punches, Scallop trim punch,
Old Olive satin ribbon, Elegant Lines embossing folder

Because this card is hard to see, I took a photo of one out of the box.


I think all the teachers liked their cards. I even got one back as a Thank You note!

Happy Stampin'!
