#1 Teacher Gift Bag

I don’t know about you but we are gearing up for the end of school here. With only less then two weeks left, I need to get busy on some gifts for my kid’s teachers and we hope you have been enjoying the ideas so far this week! You can easily incorporate these with layouts, cards or any paper crafting project.

I love a good gift bag and Debbie Standard as one for us today but that’s not the focal point. She created her own award ribbon using some Spellbinders Scalloped Circle dies! Just die cut them with an embossing machine and then cut them into pieces. Sand and then adhere them in a circular pattern, add some banner strips and you are done!

Thank you teacher Debbie1

Spring Silhouette Card

Tracy Gruber has such a great idea for a Spring card for us today! Silhouettes make beautiful  home decor so why not use them on a card? The  Black Magic for the  silhouette  against our Core Essentials Pastels really pops and is a great alternative to flowers or stamping. Don’t forget to sand and distress!

Cut the silhouette image from the A Child’s Year Cricut cartridge at 3 1/4″ out of the Black Magic Cardstock.  Then, use the Sand It Gadget to sand the edges.  Cut the light purple rectangle from the Core Essentials Pastels Pack and emboss with the Cuttlebug Seeing Spots embossing folder.  Sand over the embossed part with the Sand It Gadget.  Next emboss a piece of the light green card stock, also from the Core Essentials Pastels Pack, with the Darice Wire Fence Embossing Folder and sand with the Sand It Gadget.  Finally, distress the edges of a piece of lime green card stock from the Core Essentials Brights Pack with the Tim Holtz Edge Distresser.  Attach all of the layers together and adhere the silhouette die cut with foam squares. Tie the black bow around the top using May Arts twine.  For the sentiment piece, cut a circle using a Spellbinder’s Standard Circle Small die out of the 110lb Smooth Cardstock.  Stamp the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn A Birdie Told Me stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

Step 1: Die cut a few labels from Spellbinders, emboss, ink and you have a quick multi-layered card.

Step 2: Tearing Core’dinations Cardstock for a distressed edge is my favorite technique.  Here I used Tim Holtz and  Ranger Distress Collection,  Fire Brick Red Cardstock.

Who is ready for Spring? We are!

Ava  here today to share some Spring cards with you today. Let’s start with a Clean and Simple card.  With our pre-embossed cardstock, cards come together very quickly!
The Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions is a great pack of paper to create cards with.  Find the pre-printed sentiment on the cardstock sheet, size it to the greeting card size and you can make a quick card without touching any ink.
 Sand lightly with your Sand it Gadget and clean your sentiment using the Dust Buddy.
Punch out an embellishment using your Marvy Uchida Clever Lever Silhouette and Embossing punch, SE-E02 Heart Butterfly and add a bit of ribbon. I punched my butterfly from the Spotted Collection, Jillian Vavavoom color.

Core’dinations Cardstock supplies:  Tim Holtz and Ranger Adirondack Collection, Stonewashed  Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions, Spring/Easter , Spotted Jillian Collection, Vavavoom; Sand it Gadget ,  Dust Buddy,

Ava  again here to share with you another  Spring card.  Spring brings thoughts of new buds and greenery and that is the sign we all look for to indicate the beginning of a wonderful time of year.  My CAS card has been embossed using the Couture Creations embossing folderfrom the Fresh & Fun collection, Magical and Sizzix Flourish folder.

Gather some supplies and this CAS card will come together quickly.

 I used Core Essentials Pastels Collection pack for this card.  Embossed and lightly sanded with my Sand it Gadget. Gently dust off my sanded cardstock with my Dust Buddy and you will reveal the light tones of the inner core.
Stamp your sentiment and image onto a die cut label, adhere with some Helmar’s Zap Dots onto the card to give some dimension to your card.  Embellish with some rhinestones and ribbon and your CAS card is ready to go.
