Anna’ Stampin’ Cave – Teachers Thank You Gift Using Tropical Chic Bundle

Thanks for coming to my blog today! We are being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci and you are able to vote for my project.

A theme for this month’s highlight is ‘Teachers Gifts’. And however, it’s been a long time since our daughter finished primary school (she starts Uni after summer break) I thought why not make a cute little set of a fancy fridge magnet and a mini 3×3″ Thank You card.

To make these I’ve used Stampin’ Up! Tropical Chic Stamp Set & Tropical Thinlits Dies. I also used coordinating Tropical Escape DSP.

Anna' Stampin' Cave Teacher's Thank You Gift Fridge Magnet using Tropical Chic Stamp Set and Tropical Thinlits Dies from Stampin' Up!

First, I created the base for my magnet: I cut Basic Black cardstock to 3-1/4″ x 6-1/2″ and using liquid glue I adhered the magnetic sheet at the back. Next, I created the notes area. I have found this little notebook in my drawer but it had a navy spine and was a little too long (3″ x 4″) and I needed a square one. So I removed the old spine and shortened notebook using the guillotine.

To create new spine I cut a 1-1/2″ x 3″ piece of Basic Black cardstock and scored it at 7/8″ and 1″. Adhered it to the notebook and adhered notebook to the base.Anna' Stampin' Cave Teacher's Thank You Gift Fridge Magnet using Tropical Chic Stamp Set and Tropical Thinlits Dies from Stampin' Up!

To finish off the top of my magnet, I took a Whisper White cardstock square, glued Granny Apple Green on top and layered a slightly smaller square of Tropical Escape DSP and adhered them all to the base.

For stamping the foliage I’ve used Stamparatus: I stamped each greenery image in Granny Apple Green ink, followed by Shaded Spruce but dabbed off some colour from the edges of the images.

I did the same with flowers but I used Blushing Bride with Poppy Parade. I decided to leave one flower just in Blushing Bride. I die cut all my images using coordinating dies, arranged and adhered them to the magnet using liquid glue and dimensionals.

For the sentiment, again, I’ve used Granny Apple Green with Shaded Spruce.

For the card, I’ve used a 3″ x 6″ piece of Basic Black, scored at 3″. Same as with a magnet piece, I layered Whisper White with Granny Apple Geen and Tropical Escape DSP on top and adhered them all to the card base.

Using Stamparatus, again, I stamped each of my images and die cut them using coordinating dies.

The sentiment comes from the same stamp set but I stamped only ‘Love & Thanks’ with Blushing Bride at full strength and Poppy Parade dabbed off for gradient look.

Few rhinestones finish off my little projects.
