Teacher gifts

Where have I been? Oh, goodness. I'm just coming up for air after the last month of school and the first few weeks of summer vacation. It's always quite the adjustment for everyone to be all home, all the time. I think we're getting the hang of it, though. Anyway, here are some of the teacher gifts I made this year--like 80 cards worth. Phew!
This is the card I enclosed to say thank you. We really had some great teachers this year!

This is one example of the 80 or so cards I made--sets of 10 identical cards per teacher. Of course, in the middle of the project I ran out of white cardstock and had to get a little creative...This is Vintage Cream. Simple one-layer card, but I love how it turned out.
Card #1:
Paper: PTI White, Polka Dot patterns (Spring Moss), Pure Poppy

National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop

Hello, friends!  I am honored to be a part of the National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop with Right at Home Stamps.  Hopefully you've come from Linda's blog.

We are celebrating our hobby of papercrafting by bringing our community together and spending a day doing what we love.  Come hop with all of us, leave comments along the way, and you will be entered to win this awesome stamp set:

It's called "Make Something Beautiful", and it is being released today.  It's so fun to have a stamp set that is dedicated to our love of all things crafty--scrapbooking, painting, cardmaking, sewing, and any and all combinations of the above.  Here are two cards I've made with this set.  Those tools begged to be paper-pieced with some sparkly silver paper!

For this one I heat embossed the images in white on navy cardstock, as well as fussy cutting the tools out of the silver paper.  Then I used a Copic marker to shade the hearts and sentiment in red for a pop of color.

Papertrey Blog Hop-March

It has been a long time, but I thought I'd jump back in to the Papertrey Blog Hop this month.  I couldn't resist creating something with these beautiful patterns as inspiration.

Here's my take on it:

I used the Anniversary Set: Painted Petals, a combination of heat embossing, coloring with Copics on that heat embossing, fussy cutting and die cutting.  Very fun.
PTI White and Dark Indigo cardstock Ink: Versamark, Copics, PTI Hawaiian Shores, Blueberry Sky, Raspberry Fizz, Lovely Lady, HA Navy

Do it anyway.

Oh how much I've needed to hear this all week.  
Thank you to Beth for a very insightful and thought-provoking post.  More cards to come soon.
