teachers...

Hey friends!!  The weekend is over and my boys will have their first full week of school... I'm sure they are really looking forward to that, lol!!   Have a card to share that I made today using one of my favorite Verve sets, Teachers Count and the matching Apples dies.   The card layout is based on the Viva La Verve week 2 sketch.   I used some lovely papers from the Webster's Pages Family Traditions line.  I will also be posting this to the current Word Art Wednesday challenge celebrating their 200th challenge, to the current Simon Says Stamp challenge:  use a stamp and to the Verve Diva Inspiration challenge:  Autumn Lovelies .  I die cut the main panel using my AJVD Polka Dot Backdrop die set... absolutely love that set of dies!!  Spellbinders dies were used to cut the circle, square and long rectangle.  The apples were die cut and stamped with the outline using medium brown ink.  The solid apples were inked up with Stampin Up! Groovy Guava and then rolled in Ruby Red ink to get the color I wanted... really like how they turned out!  Stamped the sentiment on the square and then layered everything up.  Finished things off by adding a little gingham heart to the sentiment.


Thanks for stopping by today...

Supplies:  Cardstosck:  PTI kraft; Patterned paper:  Webster's Pages; Stamps: Verve; Dies:  Verve, Spellbinders and A Jillian Vance Design; Inks:  Stampin Up! and Memento

The gingham heart pulls the plaid picnic blanket and everything else together. Back to school has never looked more "apple-pealing". Thank you so much for taking time to post your very creative art with us this week at Word Art Wednesday in our 200th Celebration Week’ challenge!
Blessings and Hugs, Carole
