This is the latest batch of Lunch Box Notes I created. I used Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp’s A Christmas Like No Otter set. I choose not to use the holiday sentiments because the holidays are over.

Red Water Color Card Set

January 17, 2018

This is a set of cards I made as a Christmas gift. The sentiment is actually the negative piece left over for the Purple Water Color Card Set.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 cards

Extra Details:  I began these cards by created some card bases from water color paper. I used an acrylic block and some pink and red Distress Inks to create the backgrounds. I used the ink smooshing techniques. I used a large block which is why the ink smooshing isn’t very consistent from card to card.

The sentiments are the negative die cuts from a previous project. Once the ink was dry, I was able to adhere the white sentiment rectangles onto the card base.

Purple Watercolor Card Set

January 17, 2018

This is a set of cards I made as a gift for Christmas. The ink on these cards didn’t smoosh as well as I expected. However, they still turned out beautiful.

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began these cards by creating A2 card bases from some water color paper. I used an acrylic block and purple Distress Inks to create all of the backgrounds. I used the smooshing technique.

While the ink was drying, I die cut the letters for Thanks from a scrap of water color paper. I stamped the outlines of the letter on the die cuts in grey ink.

Once the backgrounds were dry, I adhered the die cut letter to the card front in a rectangle–ish shape.

This is a set of thank you cards I made as a Christmas gift for a friend. This idea worked out so well.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began these cards by creating some card bases from smooth white card stock. Then, I die cut a Scripty thanks die from some Post – It Notes. I used these as masks. I placed one mask on each card front. Then I began stamping.

I used seven different colors of ink to create my rainbow. I overlapped the colors just a little to make the word really easy to read. I also turned the stamp 90 degrees when I changed colors.

Once I was done stamping, I removed the masks and had these beautiful cards.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began these cards by making card bases from some water color paper. I used a small square acrylic block and six different green shade of Distress Ink to create the backgrounds. I smooshed the ink on the block, sprayed it with water and press it down on the card front. I let the block sit for about 5 minutes before I removed it to intensify the color.

Once the Distress Ink was dry, I stamped and gold embossed the frames and sentiments.

Welcome Banner January 2018

January 16, 2018

This is the January 2018 Welcome Banner for my classroom. There was a lot of purple card stock in my stash, so I used it to make this banner. I love the unexpected color and the super cute penguins together.

Details

Size:  4.25 x 7 inch panels

Extra Details: I began these panels by stamping the snowy backdrop from Snow Cool on each panel of light purple card stock. I added some more detailed snowflakes over the top of the backdrop for added interest. I used white pigment ink for all of this stamping.

  While the white pigment ink was drying, I die cut some darker purple cardstock with a forest border die. It wasn’t quite dark enough for my tastes so I ink blended a darker purple ink over the whole border. I love the way the ink blending created just the right color.

I also die cut a bunch of white stitched hillsides. I layer one hill over each purple forest and then adhered it to the light purple panels. I tried to leave as much of the stamped snow visible as possible. I added a second smaller stitched hill side to the bottom of each panel. For the two end panels, I added a steep hill.

While, I had the die cut machine and white card stock out, I also die cut some white snowflakes tags. These will end up being the home for my letters on the finished banner.

The penguins and all their accessories are from my box of pre-colored and cut images. Some of the images were water colored with Crayola Fine Line Markers; some were colored using markers; and some were water colored with Distress Inks. I used glue dots to adhere all of the images around the panels.

Lastly, I stamped the letters in WELCOME on the white snowflake tags in purple ink. I added a white twine bow to each tag and adhered it to a panel.

I love the way this banner turned out.
