For our first day of August reveals, we are showcasing the Classy Teachers stamp set and coordinating dies. This stamp set is super special for me because my daughter is a teacher. Thank you so much Jen for creating this stamp set. Teachers work so hard and are often unappreciated. I think being a teacher is a noble career and words cannot express how proud I am of my daughter for being one.
To start, I stamped my images on some Neenah solar white card stock with my memento tuxedo black ink and colored them in with my alcohol markers (not Copics). Yes, I am currently working on a mobile design studio because I’m in the process of moving my entire overseas studio back home to FL (container is currently in Singapore, en-route to FL). I never realized how hard it was going to be not having my regular supplies. Even taking my project photos was a huge challenge. It was raining so hard for the last two weeks and it’s been gloomy. Anyways, I wouldn’t bore you with all of my crafting dilemma. Here is the first card:
Let me just say that the sentiment on this card is my favorite! Here’s another look:
For my second card, I wanted to create a cheerful card. My daughter is my ray of sunshine. She works so hard at school but still manages to call me after work to update me about her day and how her “kids” made her laugh or cry, etc.! She is AMAZING! Here is my second card:
I used the same sentiment on the second card because I think it is so true! Here’s another look:
