fs227: StamperCamper

Here is this week's featured stamper cards (yes, plural)

Mary is this week's featured stamper and her first card {Celebrate} was fun to recreate: I changed the the colors and stamp set! I also added buttons and used designer papers and a punch for the butterfly! I made it a one layer card and framed it with a score line.

stamps: teacher's apple
paper: kraft, moss, designer paper (Basic Grey)
ink: black
misc: butterfly punch, buttons, ribbon, foam dimensionals

The second card is based on Mary's {On the Grow} card. I changed the colors and stamp set. I loved the layout of her card, so I just changed the colors and stamp set. I used a poppy base, added some green (dry pressure embossed) with some fun designer paper.

As you can imagine, I have a TON of these teacher thank you notes to make! I better get crack-a-lackin'! I have been asked about what kinds of gifts I like to give to the teachers....Usually I get them gift cards (Itunes or Tarjay)...something they will use! The one thing I love is when I get to contribute to a group gift - it makes my life SO much easier. I usually thank the parent who organizes it PROFUSELY! I love to NOT have to do that and beg the other parents for money! One of the things I have taken to doing is getting a folding outdoor chair (like the beach chairs that you can fit in the bag). I use a Sharpie marker and write on the back of the chair: Teacher Of The Year, 5th Grade 2010-2011. I usually put their name too! That has always been a hit! I saw Karen's teacher from two years ago sitting in her chair outside the other day, reading to her class! What a great memory!

stamps: teacher's apple (PTI)
ink: black, poppy, new leaf
paper: poppy, green, designer paper (DCWV)
misc: corner rounder, foam dimensionals, swiss dots embossing folder

Enjoy every single moment of today
