Hello Crafty Friends!!
Larissa here today to share a couple FUN Cards using Products from the NEW Greatest Friends on Earth Release!! It’s that time of year when School is winding down, and Teacher Appreciation Cards are needing to be made!!
I thought it would be FUN to use the NEW Le Cirque Stamp Set along with the NEW Starstruck Stencil and Die Cut Stars from the NEW That’s the Ticket Slimline Die Set to create this You’re Amazing Card for one of my son’s Teachers!! I Started by Stenciling the background Card Panel using the NEW Starstruck Stencil!! I Sprayed the backside of the Stencil with some Therm O Web Pixie Spray and then Inked with Candied Apple Distress Ink!! Then I added some Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters for some extra Texture and some Midas Touch Gold Shimmer Pen Splatters for aa touch of Sparkle!! I Die Cut the Panel using the Modern Embossed Rectangle Stack Die Set!!
Next I Stamped and Embossed all of the Images from the NEW Le Cirque Stamp Set and colored them with Copic Markers!!
Red: R14, R37 & R39 White: N0 & N2 Blue: B34, B37 & B39
Yellow: Y11, Y15 & YR23 Cheeks: R81 Mouse: W0, W2 & W5 Seal: N0, N2 & N4
I used the coordinating NEW Le Cirque Dies to Die Cut the Images out and then I added some White & Black Gel Pen Details to the Images!!
Next I Die Cut a Circle frame using the Embossed Edge Circle Stack Die Set from some Black Cardstock, and another Circle Die from some White Cardstock!! I Layered then together after I inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink!! I added some Water Splatters for some Texture and then I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment “You’re Amazing” from the NEW Balancing Acts Stamp Set!!
I Adhered the Images to the Circle Background and then I adhered the Circle Background to the Stenciled Card Panel using Foam Tape!! I Die Cut the Stars from the NEW That’s a Ticket Slimline Die Set from some White Cardstock and colored them with Copic Markers!! I used Y11, Y15 & YR23 Then I added some Midas Touch Gold Shimmer Pen for aa touch of Sparkle!! I adhered them onto my Card Panel using Foam Tape and then adhered the Card Panel onto an A2 Cardbase!! I LOVE the way this Card came together!! It’ll be the PERFECT way to say Thank You to Greyson’s Teacher for all of her HARD Work this Year!!
My second Card showcases the NEW Balancing Act Stamp Set!! SQUEAL!! This set could be using for SO MANY occasions and U thought it would make the PERFECT Card for Beckett’s 8th Grade Teacher who had a lot to Balance this Year in order to have his class ready to Graduate this Year, so they can move the Hight School next year with a seamless transition!!
Next I Stamped and Embossed all of the Images from the NEW Balancing Act Stamp Set and colored them with Copic Markers!!
Red: R14, R37 & R39 White: N0 & N2 Turquoise: BG11, BG45 & BG49 Yellow: Y11, Y15 & YR23 Cheeks: R81 Orange: YR00, YR18 & YR68 Green: YG03, YG17 & YG25 Purple: V00, V15 & V09 Dog: E30, E33 & E35 Monkey: E40, E43 & E47
I used the coordinating NEW Balancing Act Dies to Die Cut the Images out and then I added some White & Black Gel Pen Details to the Images!!
For my Card Panel I Die Cut a Modern Embossed Rectangle Stack Die Set from some White Cardstock and Masking Paper and then Die Cut a Circle from the center of the Masking Paper using the Embossed Edge Circle Stack Die Set!! I adhered the Masking Paper Background to the Card Panel and Inked with some Scattered Straw Distress Oxide Ink!! Then I removed the Masking Paper Background and adhered the Masking Circle over the Inked Circle and applied some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to the Card Panel using a Blending Buddy Brush!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment “Life is a Balancing Act” to the bottom of the Card Panel!!
Then I adhered ALL of my Images to create this AMAZING Scene!! Just makes me SMILE and I think it sums up this Year PERFECTLY!! It definitely was a YEAR of the Balancing Act!! A few Fairy Rocks Rhinestone Embellishments finishes off the Design!!
I LOVE how these Cards turned out and I hope I’ve INSPIRED you with some ideas for those End of the Year Teacher Appreciation Cards!! This years Cards deserve a little Playfulness and I think the NEW Products from the Greatest Friends on Earth Release are a PERFECT Match!!
