Tagged Teacher Thank You

A super quick card for Simon's class teacher.  The background had already been stamped with WMS Cabin Plaid Backgrounder.  I usually do a couple of these large background stamps in a sitting as they always come in handy.  The tags and grommet were cut with the largest of the WMS Stitched Tag set. One was embossed with numbers and the other with letters using the M-Bossabilities Numbers and Letters embossing folder.  The background had been stamped with Adirondack Peach Bellini and I used it to highlight the embossing on the tags as well.

Once again I was inspired by Seize the Sketch #24,

Tweet Thank You Starting from Scrap

I still seem to be on a crusade to use up unfinished bits and bobs.  The background was created ages ago while experimenting with various distress ink techniques - in this case Peeled Paint and Broken China.   I think I used scrunched up paper towels to remove some of the colour after the inks had been blended.

I also found a sheet of green card on which I had stamped the musical score from de Stempelwinkel, and I used it to cut this wee Meadow Bird from Memory Box and the Honeycomb cells from Clearly Besotted.

The tag and grommet were cut using the WMS Stitched Tags  die set, and was stamped with one of the sentiments from WMS Country Labels 4.  I finished it off by adding a little Karen Foster Scrapper's Floss bow.

As you can see inspiration came from Retro Sketches #122

Late Note for the Teacher

 I made this Belated Birthday Card for my friend Michaela who just happens to be a teacher, so I thought I'd go with a notebook theme on this card.  I have also used DPs featuring travel paraphernalia as she loves to travel and a map of Italy as this is definitely one of her favourite destinations.

I put an order into Clearly Besotted on Tuesday afternoon and it arrived yesterday (Thursday) - that's what I call service.  Among the items I ordered was this lovely notebook edge die and this notebook page stamp.  I teamed it with this Just a Note sentiment from the WMS Funky Feathers set.

Inspiration for the layout came from Seize the Sketch #24.

I am also entering this in the current Make My Monday challenge to use Mail Art, as one of my DPs has a telegram on it !

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend,

Mojo From the Scrap Heap

Another last minute card for one of Simon's therapists.  The last few days I have been going over my boxes of scraps and elements in an attempt to get some order into them.  Not only did it help my flagging mojo but I was able to knock up 2 cards quickly yesterday afternoon (no time for photos) and this one today. For this card today I just had to stamp the sentiment and label from WMS Country Labels 4 and die cut with Spellbinder Labels 4.

The sketch I used was from Mojo Monday 353.  I just searched for some suitable scraps large enough for the various elements in this sketch and put them all together.
