Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peek: Day 3 - A Classy View and Love Teaching

Hello everyone...welcome to day three of the Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peeks!!! Are you blown away yet with all the fabulous stamp sets and dies that will be available tomorrow...August 8th at 8:00 AM PST. The Facebook Preview Party will be tonight at 6:00 PST....hope to see you there!!! 

I have two cards for you today....both are just perfect for that special teacher in your life!!! Our church has adopted the elementary school that is right next door to us. Every year we collect school supplies and clothing for the teacher's supply closet. It would break your heart to know how many children go to school without coats or shoes that fit. The teachers even spend their own money to clothe some of the kids. Our church members have a real soft spot in their hearts for the teachers of Scott Elementary and we will be using these stamp sets often to show them our affection and appreciation!!! 

The first one was made with the A Classy View stamp set....the image was colored with Copics, cutout, and adhered to the tag that was made with Bermuda Bay card stock.....the slit was punched with the horizontal slot punch and the fiber ribbon was tied with twine. The chevrons were cut out of the Boy Crazy dp by My Minds Eye,  adhered to the white card base, and the sentiment from the same set was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black.  The tag was adhered to the Label Stacklets 4 layers with foam tape and the sun which was cutout of the Boy Crazy dp with the Build a Scene - Sunshine dies was also adhered with foam tape. The button with twine added to the sun and the twine finishes it off. 

My second card features the Love Teaching sentiment stamp and the cute little school house from the Classroom Cuties set. The sentiment was stamped on the Boy Crazy dp and a spiral punch was used on the top edge. It was layered on a piece of Real Red card stock that was cutout with the Label Stacklets 4 die. The Tempting Turquoise hand cut banner in the background was embossed with a large dot folder and sewing was done at the top. Sewing was done around the edges of the small banner and the button with twine was adhered with a glue dot. 

The cute little school house was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black,  cutout with the coordinating die called Back to School, and colored with Copics. It was adhered with foam tape...the background paper is also from the Boy Crazy 6x6 Paper Pad and sewing and distressing were done around the edges. It was adhered to the Real Red layer and Choice Buttercream was used for the card base......the baker's twine finishes it off. 

Check out all the FABULOUS Sneak Peeks created by the Baker's Dozen Design Team!!!
