MFT April Teaser Day 5

Hi everyone!  Today is Day 5 of MFT's April Teasers. I am excited to share a fun, new a la mode with you, An Apple for Teacher.  I also have peeks of a couple new Die-Namics.


With the new stamp set I made a Tri-Fold card and gift for a favorite teacher. I stamped in image in black ink, colored with Copics, and paper pieced her shirt. Then I cut her out with the new Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics. 


The shading is with done with Prism Colored Pencils. I added a ribbon to tie the card shut. My papers are from Graphic 45 ABC Primer.


On the first page that shows when the card is open I added a sentiment from the stamp set cut out with one of the smaller dies in the Fishtail Flag STAX Die-namics


When the card is completely open I added a pocket for a gift card and other sentiment from the set. The letters ABC are cut with the new By the Letter Uppercase Die-namics. You could also add a note from the student or a photograph.

Of my four daughters only one of them is married, so far! This is my oldest daughter Nicole and her hubby, Terry. I couldn't ask for a better son-in-law! 


To make their Anniversary card I printed the photo in black and white, 2" x 2". To make my house I just cut two rectangles and a triangle. My roof is cut from corrugated paper. 


I used the new Pinking Edge Die-namic along the edge of the green and white striped paper. My sun is cut with the Sunshine Die-namics. I added a heart button to the chimney, the sentiment from the Clearly Sentimental About Anniversaries stamp set, and a charm from my stash tied on with Bakers Twine in Charcoal.

Hello TESC155

Happy Monday! I hope you had a nice weekend. My husband and I spent a couple of days in Laguna Beach to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I don't go back to work until tomorrow so I got a chance to play along with the newest Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge, TESC155.

If you would like to play along just create a card using the sketch as inspiration. You're not required to use TE stamps to play, but there's a bonus prize if you do! To be entered into the prize drawing you must link your card using the In Linkz provided on Taylor's Blog by Thursday, April 12th. And of course there are prizes that are up for grabs.


For my card today I am using Hello A La Carte and a new paper pad for Jillibean Soup 6x6 Pad - Neopolitan Bean Bisque. I stamped Hello in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copics. I used Doodle Bug Twine in Lady Bug and added machine stitching. 


I used glitter pen on the dial of my phone. I punched out the circle with my phone from the patterned paper and added a heart button.

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you get a chance to play along with the sketch challenge.
