Don't forget da teacher this Christmas!!


Hey hens! Happy Tuesday to ya! So, my hairdresser asked if I could make a Christmas card for her daughter's elementary school teacher and without hesitation I said, "sure!" But then I thought, "Uhhhh, what image do I use for that?" Well, why not "teachabella" from Stamping Bella I thought! And I must say, I think I was RIGHT ON! Don't you? I just LOVE this card! I wish I was a teacher and then I could give it to myself! Hmmmph!

Ok, so I stamped "teachabella" onto some of Bella's Bestest Paper and colored her with my Copics. This DP is from Fancy Pants' "Hot Chocolate" collection and it has some really pretty colors in it. I paired it with some SU Very Vanilla & Real Red CS and sponged some distress ink around the edges. I cut the image out with my Nesties and sponged the same ink around the edges of it, as well. To finish, I tied this pretty red satin ribbon into a cute bubbly bow and there ya have a card for one LUCKY CLUCKY teacher! Awwwwwk!

Now before I leave ya today, I just wanted to remind you of my That's Krafty Thursday sketch challenge. The deadline for submission is tomorrow at 7:00pm EST. Just link your card using Mr. Linky on the bottom of my December 2nd post and YOU could be the next Krafty Chick! Woo-hoo!

Have a Tee-riffic Tuesday! {{{hen hugs}}}

Supplies:
Rubber Stamps - Stamping Bella; Copics; CS - SU Very Vanilla & Real Red, Bella's Bestest Paper; Nestabilities; Ribbon - Michaels; Distress Ink - Ranger Tim Holtz

  12. How do you do that? Your shading is spectacular. I would have been totally stumped as to how to color that blackboard. I love the papers. I love the layout. The only think I don't like about it is that I could have never come up with something so wonderful.
