Year End Thank You Cards for Teachers


Hello my friends!

Today I have a bunch of  Year End Thank You Cards for the Teachers to share with you all. Both my kids go to Portuguese School so that is why I made so many! I always like to thank the teachers with a little year end treat, as I could never do what they do and have so much appreciation for them.

I pulled out most of my Teacher stamps and zoned out creating them. I chose not to film the process video as this would be way too long to watch! I mixed and matched the stamps I had from various companies to make some one of kind cards.

Here is my first card.




For this card I used the Thanks A Bushel set from Lawn Fawn and a retired set from Clearly Besotted Best Teacher. I love that little happy apple face 😊

I colored this one in using my Zig Clean Color Brush Markers. and just added some glossy accents to the happy apple!




On the inside I also used stamps from the Best Teacher set.
This really cute and simple card was made using the apple from the Thanks A Bushel set plus the sentiments from SSS Hey Teacher.






This time I used my brand new Tombow Dual Brush Markers to color the apples in!

And again added glossy accents only to the glasses on the apple.






I had fun with this ruler card.
Here again I used my Tombow Markers in rainbow order colors and blended the colors out with a clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen.








I also added glossy accents to the die cut heart just to make it pop!
For this last card, I used the Apples from the Thanks A Bushel set and spaced them out using my stamp positioning tool.




Really simple and sweet!
All my cards actually came together very quickly. I guess that's what happens when you limit the stamps sets you use or have 😏

For more details on the supplies used in today's card check out the rest of my links below.





I hope you were inspired by my Year End Thank You Cards for the Teachers. I know many of the kids are already out of school so this post maybe late for some of you. Here in Edmonton we go right until the end of June. So we still have a week and a half left to go!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)

Funny Food Cards For Dad


You all ready for Father's Day?
I know I'm not, but at least I have my cards ready!

Today's cards feature Simon Say Stamp Funny Food stamp set. I think these cute food images and punny sentiments worked perfectly to create a Father's Day Card. They would also be perfect for a Birthday or Valentine's Day card! 


While I was making these cards, I realized I had only ONE Father's Day stamp... how can that be!?!
 I will have to rectify that problem soon, or at least before next year 😏

The sentiment I stamped on the inside comes from Fleurette Bloom's Get Your Motor Runnin (also a great Male stamp set for dad!) Check out my links below for all the supplies I used.

Who hasn't heard of a Fidget Spinner
Pretty sure if you have a child at home or know any kids you have

Mermazing Circle Spinner Card


Hello friends!

Today I have a really fun card to share with you all featuring MFT's Mermazing stamp set. I can't believe it's taken me so long to make something with this set. I LOVE, LOVE, Love it! I'm sure you may see a few more cards created with this set in the near future.

It's hard to tell from the picture, but the fish and turtles spin all around the card. There is an acetate ring that allows the critters to move all around the mermaid. 

I just love making interactive cards like this and usually the recipients love them too πŸ˜‰


I guess you could call this a mixed media card as I used so many coloring elements.
Kuratake Gansai Tambi Watercolor, Distress Oxide inks, and Prismacolor colored pencils... oh, and a million other supplies, lol! You will see that in the links below.😲

Here is a closer look.


To watch how this card came together I would love for you to watch my process video.
Plus, Thank You to all who have subscribed to my channel and have given me feedback... All  your thumb ups and comments are very  appreciated and so encouraging!
